Bitter Small Towners

It is almost unbelievable how the media is rolling over for Barrack Obama. He makes stupid statements that would put any other politician in the grave and the press simply glosses over them.

His latest pearl of stupidity is his comment about small town Pennsylvanians being bitter about the way the economy is going in their areas and their "clinging" to guns and religeon to achieve a measure of comfort. A dumber statement would be hard to make.

What his statement shows is that he says what he thinks an audience wants to hear. He was speaking in San Fransisco to a gathering of well heeled donors and felt it was imperative to differentiate the ignorant, gun loving, religeous, unwashed small towners from the enlightened, gun control, agnostic city dwellers.

Obama gave to thought to the fact that what he said to his enlightened audience was a slap in the face of a huge segment of society that is actually is the group who butters his bread.

Another thing I found interesting is that apparently pollsters and party leaders consider any city with a population under 200,000 people to be small towns. That is a very interesting demographic since by that definition, the majority of Americans live in small towns.

So, with his ignorant statement, Obama has managed to insult about 65% of the American public and the media just glosses over it. No wonder our government isn't working properly and we get politicians who have no clue about the real world.
