Barack Obama showing more of his true colors....

Obama : No Surprise that hard-pressed Pennsylvanians turn bitter

You go into some of 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," Obama said. "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."

This man is so out of touch with reality and mainstream America it's almost hard to believe. California and California politics are NOT mainstream. They've never been. If you bring up California law during a trial or in a written brief here in Delaware (or any other state) you'll get laughed out of court because CA laws are so whacked they can't be used for comparisons.

Obama's words just reek of elitism and moral superiority, but I suppose we should consider the audience, since he was talking to California Democrats. Things change, towns die out, industries leave and people either adapt or they move somewhere else. That's been the case since the country was founded. It's not the government's job to save the industry that's the backbone of your town if that industry is unsustainable.

Let's consider the leap he's making here, from talking about job loss, moving to bitterness, and then throwing in a plethora of ignorant stereotypes about "typical white people" regarding how they "cope" with bitterness. He says that people cling to guns and religion because of dire economic outlook over the last 25 years. Did people not "cling to their guns & religion" prior to 1983? We've been "clinging to guns" since we threw off British tyranny. Guns are an integral part of the freedoms we enjoy in this great nation, which is why the right to own and carry them was enshrined in the 2nd Amendment to the Bill of Rights.

When Obama says these things you have to remind yourself that he's a uber-liberal and doesn't live in reality. People "cling to guns," meaning they value freedom and the 2nd Amendment. They "cling to religion" meaning they have strong faith in god, something that's been normal throughout most of humanity. For Obama and other's on the far left, it's simply inconceivable that religion and respect for the 2nd Amendment might actually be strongly held values for the majority of Americans. Such ideas don't fit their world view, and thus there must be some reason why "unenlightened" folks hold such beliefs. Something must be wrong with all of us. We must be frustrated, angry, hopeless, and bitter, because we couldn't possibly hold such archaic, backward views otherwise. We are "typical white people" and he and Michelle must "fix our souls."

And it's not just guns and religion. Apparently we don't like immigrants and "people who aren't like us." Once again Obama is calling average white Americans racist. I won't get into the whole race issue, because that's another post entirely. As far as being "anti-immigrant," you're damn right I am! God forbid I don't like people who brazenly break the law to come to this country, then act like they're entitled to things and start demanding free shit from the rest of us. FUCK YOU. Get the hell out of my country if you're not willing to come in legally and don't want to fix your own 3rd world shit hole of a country.

How the hell did Obama think people were going to react to his bigoted statements? He attacked their way of life, their beliefs, and their values and dismissed them as products of economically induced bitterness.

Obama also said, "I think it's fair to say that the places where we are going to have to do the most work are the places where people feel most cynical about government."

They're cynical about government because they have common-sense. They understand, unlike liberals, that government isn't supposed to "fix" things, it's supposed to stay out of the way. Many of the people living outside of Marxist utopias can see right through Obama's "hope, change, I'm going to unite America" bullshit. You Mr. Obama are nothing more than an elitist, arrogant asshole. And your wife..... oh my god. What planet are you people from?

OK, I'm not sure why my posts sometimes format like this, with the fonts being slightly different sizes.

Breath man, breath!

Nice rant! I can't stand politicians nowadays, bunch of elitists, so I'm going to sit this election out. At this point, the only reason I would want to meet Obama or Hillary is to spit in their face.

I wouldn't spit in McCains, but I definitely won't cast a vote in his favor.
