Sen. Obama, You Want Bitter?

This long campaign is the best thing that could have happened for the country. And we can thank the Democratic party for it. For without it, we may not have learned half of what we know about the first-term senator from Illinois, Barack Obama. Barack isn’t going to tell me that I’m bitter. Especially when I’m not. But look how casually and effortlessly he dissects, divides, and insults Americans.

“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 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.”

The good thing about this incident is that he is exposing his true beliefs and motivations with every passing day. And the more he does that, the more we learn about just who Barack Obama really is and the less palatable he is becoming to people looking to select a President.

In his multiple explanations and non-apologetic apologies regarding his characterization of the regular folk who are bitter, and who cling to religion and guns, Barack just keeps on digging. Now he says that no, not all ‘these people’ are bitter. Those that aren’t bitter are simply out of touch, he says. So, if you’re not one of the bitter ones out there, like I was, then you must be out of touch. OK, now I’m bitter.

So here’s how the uniter works his magic on the American people. You are bitter. And if you’re not bitter, you’re out of touch. This is just another glimpse of where this man is coming from, who he is, and what he thinks of you. And the more we know about him, the better. In this political race, time is not on his side. And, momentum is a two-way street.
