Barack Obama, Bitter Pennsylvanians, Bitter Hillary, Bitter Americans?

AAPP: Hillary Clinton is now trying to paint Obama as an elitist and is having a ball trying to do it. She thinks it is just the mis-step she had been waiting for. A slip up? Or did Obama speaks the Truth On Americans being Bitter about the condition of America? Now, Hillary and company, the self righteous experts of color aroused campaigning are lunging at Obama, as Hillary hunts for Opening Over his Small-Town comments. Yes, as reported by the Chicago Times, Obama said: God, guns are only refuge of bitter Pennsylvanians. My sense is he was right, that is why he is making big headway, as polls show Pa. women are ditching Hillary. The way he made his comments could have been worded better. Yet, like the Rev. Wright this issue wont be an issue for the American voters of Pa - who know the truth. Americans are bitter. About George Bush, About the War, and about the Economy. OK, on another note, It just may be wise to learn how to bowl Obama. Or just stay out of bowling alley's. :-)

Thirty words White House hopeful Barack Obama said at a private California fund-raiser threatened Friday to torpedo any hopes he had of catching up to Hillary Clinton in the all-important Pennsylvania primary election 10 days from now.

Talking about how the loss of jobs over 25 years has sapped the hope of small-town Pennsylvania residents, Obama said at the Sunday fund-raiser, "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."

After the quotes surfaced on a political blog Friday, Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and GOP hopeful John McCain immediately decried them as evidence that Obama is "elitist" or "out of touch."

"My opponent said that the people of Pennsylvania who faced hard times are bitter. Well, that's not my experience," Clinton told a crowd in Philadelphia. "As I travel around Pennsylvania, I meet people who are resilient, who are optimistic, who are positive, who are rolling up their sleeves ... Pennsylvanians don't need a president who looks down on them, they need a president who stands up for them."

McCain senior adviser Steve Schmidt said, "It shows an elitism and condescension towards hardworking Americans that is nothing short of breathtaking; it is hard to imagine someone running for president who is more out of touch with average Americans."

Clinton's double-digit lead over Obama in Pennsylvania has been shrinking in recent days as Obama toured the state and outspent Clinton on broadcast advertising. More HERE
