“Jeremiah, I told the small town American people that I thought they were a bunch of Bible thumpin’, gun totin’, immigrant hatin’ bigots!”
“Son, you didn’t! You big dummie!”
Here is exactly what Obama said before an audience of wealthy Democrats in San Fransisco on April 6th:
You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, a lot of them — like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothings replaced them. And they’ve gone 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. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, and they cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment, or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
