The resurfacing of the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright, pastor of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ, particular with the release of Edward Klein’s new book, “The Amateur,” has raised questions if Wright will be fair game in the upcoming presidential election.

On his Friday show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh blamed the media for not giving more scrutiny to issues like Rev. Wright, which the Obama campaign has declared off limits.

“His college transcripts, the relationship he had with Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Rashid Khalidi, Frank Marshall Davis, his ties to ACORN, what his role was in the ‘million-man march,’ scholarships, loans, how did he become such a fantastic writer having written nothing before ‘Dreams of My Father,’” Limbaugh said. “And the stuff that he had written was no great shakes — where did he learn to write?”

“The media, they don’t care what goes on in the White House when it’s the Obamas,” he continued. “They don’t care what goes on in the attorney general’s office. They don’t care what’s going on in the Energy Department, the Labor Department. They don’t care and they don’t want people to know what a rat’s nest every corner of this regime is.”

The new revelations that keep surfacing about President Barack Obama, however, could be coming from Bill and Hillary Clinton to raise their own political standing.

“There is a decent amount of corruption in this regime, and people are just now coming to that, hearing about that for the first time in their lives,” he continued. “The media essentially worked for Sen. Obama and helped him run right over Hillary Clinton.”

“By the way, I wouldn’t be surprised — I don’t know, I’m just speculating. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of this ‘stuff’ that we’re now learning about Obama, maybe the Clintons are behind it. Bill said he wants to go back to the White House. Bill said he thinks Hillary ought to be in there. Bill went out there again and undercut Obama this week on taxes, so the middle class is going to have to pay more taxes, and Obama’s out there trying to convince the middle class they’ll never have to pay another dime.”
