what an elitist snob Obama really is, maybe this quote in HuffPo will make it clear:
But the truth is, is that, our challenge is to get people persuaded that we can make progress when there’s not evidence of that in their daily lives. 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. 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.
Yeah, obviously all of us that have faith, own guns, or feel that people should actually follow the law when they come into this country are just waiting for the government to come and save us, then we will see the Great Light. What pomposity. Could Barack and Michelle Obama be more out of touch with mainstream America? The America where some of us actually believe that WE bear responsibility for the majority of what happens to us. The America where we HAVE been proud of our country in the last 20 years. Or ALL of the last 20 years. The America where we don’t all have armed guards and some of us have to protect ourselves and our families, and have to take our own measures. The America where we (or our ancestors) came to this country, followed the law, LEARNED THE LANGUAGE, and became citizens. The America that was originally populated with people looking to practice the religion of their choice. The America where the majority still profess faith. Maybe John Edwards was right, maybe there are two Americas. Because this guy really doesn’t seem to be living in the same country I am.
