Obama disses small town America

Let Obama go long enough and he shows his liberal colors.

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. 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. So it’s not surprising then that 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.

Quoted from transcript on Huffington Post.

So the small town folk are just a bunch of bitter clods who turn to stupid issues like guns or religion or petty sentiments. And Obama wants them to forget all that and swoon at his feet.

Yes, the second amendment is a trvial thing; religion is a panacea; secure borders is xenophobia. And small towns are full of small people.

Remember this when voting, America.

  1. J, what is wrong with what the president said here? There are a lot of bitter people. They go to town hall meetings screaming and carrying their guns. They even bring their guns to where the President is speaking, making the work of the Secret Service an absolute nightmare. Please properly address the president when speaking about him.

  2. Hi, Gail, I’m getting ready to travel Tuesday, will be gone for two months. Gonna be hard to keep up the conversation. So let’s close it with this: did you object this way when Bush was booed in his address to the joint Congress? Double-sided …



  3. J, I think you are trying to get rid of me. Why are you so uncomfortable discussing important issues? I thought someone with a blog would be interested in discussing and studying issues, otherwise why have a blog to just talk to yourself?

  4. I thought I’d been pretty patient with your comments. Think as you wish. You seem to be good at reading other people’s minds.

  5. Yes, you are correct I am good at it especially when people are transparent. Patient? You are uncomfortable with the hard questions aren’t you? The hard questions won’t go away just because you ignore them.

What do you think?
