During a San Francisco fundraiser, Sen Barack Obama referred to small-town Pennsylvanians and "other Midwesterners" during his remarks:
"But the truth is, is that, our challenge is to get people persuaded that we can make progress when there’s not evidence of that in their daily lives. You go into some of 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 has 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."
because God knows that folks in the coasts wouldn't react in such a way if they lost their jobs, right Senator?
fuck'im and fuck the horse he rode in
