President Barack Obama told Howard University graduates this weekend their hard work really meant nothing compared to luck – and he admitted he never wanted a post-racial, post-partisan society, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh told his audience on Monday's show

Limbaugh played clips of Obama's commencement speech in which he told grads to "Be confident in your blackness," but to also be aware of "injustice and unfairness and struggle" by their forbears.

"We have cousins and uncles and brothers and sisters who we remember were just as smart and just as talented as we were, but somehow got ground down by structures that are unfair and unjust," Obama said. "Because yes you've worked hard, but you've also been lucky. That's a pet peeve of mine: People who've been successful and don't realize they've been lucky, that God may have blessed them. It wasn't nothin' you did."

Obama, Limbaugh said, wants people to realize that without government "and without 'betters' and without people in command-and-control authority — you're not gonna have diddly-squat."

The unspoken message, he said, is: "If you're black, you aren't gonna have it, 'cause the people in charge of luck aren't gonna pass it out to you."

Limbaugh also noted that Obama disavowed the notion the he would be a "post-racial" and "post-partisan president."

"My election did not create a post-racial society," Obama said. "I don't know who was propagating that notion. That was not mine."

Obama doesn't want change, Limbaugh said. "He thinks there's so much payback still needed. This country has committed unforgivable sins, and there's no way the people who committed 'em are gonna get away this easily."
