There are two kind of people who generally earn the “idiot” label – those who have views that they are unable to support with facts, yet they continue to support them (and dismiss all facts in the process), and then there are those simply do stupid things that will come back to bite them in the end. Barack Obama’s recent “bitter” rant proves that both labels can easily be applied to him:
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.
Now first of all, if Obama had to say this, then he should have said it in some place otherthan San Fransisco – the center of American liberalism, and the heat of what seems to be every anti-family, anti-life, anti-border, anti-war movement. Then again, this was probably the only place he could say this without getting run out of town. Even in other liberal areas – cities like Detroit and so on, attacking religion still would have caused Obama to be driven off the stage.
But once again, Obama has proven why the liberals who control the Democratic party simply cannot be allowed to continue to make gains in the Government. Rather than attacking the real and serious threats to this country, like terrorism, or illegal immigration, they have invented their own “threats” that must be attacked and destroyed – like statues of the Ten Commandments in court houses, or widespread use of guns for hunting an self defense in America’s heartland (what are the violent crime rates in Montana compared to inner cities?), or reckless Americans who demand such unreasonable things as border security.
Needless to say, these people have no place in American government.
