As the Pennsylvania primary looms, BHO asks for votes by basically calling Pennsylvanians, backwoods rednecks....
"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."
That's a pretty big list of things to blame on job loss. Clearly he doesn't think people in depressed Pennsylvania are mature enough to deal with job loss like sophisticated adults...like him and Michelle. Alert reader freedom2learn lives in that part of the country and I'd love to hear how his comments are playing with people up there.
