Barack Obama: Elitist Snob

From the Huffington Post, Obama’s explanation of why people in Pennsylvania who won’t be voting for him are ignorant rednecks.
“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’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.”
This, unfortunately, is the way that many (and perhaps most) college professors view people who disagree with their cultural views.

It’s the way most journalists view people who disagree with their cultural views.

It’s just another piece of evidence that Obama is not really a “black” candidate.

He’s just a standard latte liberal who happens to have racially mixed parentage.

He’s not, in other words, really different from John Kerry or Michael Dukakis.


Note how Obama included “anti-trade sentiment” in his list of evil beliefs. But he’s been running on a protectionist platform! So he is either hypocritically condemning people who agree with him, or he knows better than to favor protectionism and has been pandering mightily.

It's pandering.

Silicon Valley types are VERY interested in H1-B labor, and if he wants money from S.V., he damn well better signal love for H1-B.
