MEMO: To Obama: Religion Gives People Hope...NOT YOU
"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 nothings 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."
OOPS What I meant to say was...
"So I said, 'Well, you know, when you're bitter you turn to what you can count on,' " he continued. "So people they vote about guns, or they take comfort from their faith and their family and their community. And they get mad about illegal immigrants who are coming over to this country or they get frustrated about, you know, how things are changing. That's a natural response."
I did not know why I was religious. Now I know. I am bitter. Please fix the government and I can stop going to church, sell our guns and love illegals more. Barack is right "words matter" and these will undoubtedly bite him in the butt. Look for plenty of soundbite commercials in the general. I thought he was smarter than the word pillager Bush.
