This post is a little late, but the subject matter continues to make me smile. Barack Obama says…..
“You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them.And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.”
“And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Oh Lord. Do you hear the condescension from this one? It’s sickening. New York Daily News columnist, Michael Goodwin translates for us….
Turn his screed around and it comes out this way: If the hicks had good jobs, they wouldn’t need God or guns. Then the borders could be wide open for the enlightened world to come here ’cause our hate would vanish.
The more I hear from Obama, the more excited I become that he might actually be the Democrat nominee. This guy has diarrhea of the mouth and can’t stop himself. Get him away from the teleprompter, and it’s anyone’s guess what will come out of his mouth. It just underlies the fact that Obama is truly a liberal elite without a clue.
Obama just gives voice to the liberal view that common Americans are ignorant and don’t understand what is best for them. If we will just leave things to the Dems, it’ll all be ok. Everytime voters elect a Republican for president, it wasn’t because of the Democrat candidate’s failings. It was because voters were just too uninformed and shortsighted to see that someone like John Kerry or Al Gore really did know what was best for the American people. One day, voters are going to snap out of their trance and realize the elitist garbage that is being spewed by the Democrats. Obama might have just made some folks in Pennsylvania understand.
