Obama's Eschews Political Correctness

And both McCain and Hillary Clinton show why neither one of them Gets It.
Obama's comments in Indiana in turn sparked another round of criticism from his rivals. Clinton spokesman Phil Singer said in a statement that "instead of apologizing for offending small town America, Senator Obama chose to repeat and embrace the comments he made earlier this week."
Because they were an accurate assessment of why such "good people" such as the working class folk under discussion can behave so poorly and with such disdain for their fellows. When the system is rigged against you, as it is for everyone who works in rising-pay manufacturing jobs in the U.S., then you are going to "... get bitter, (and)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."

Elitist? Yes. Both Clinton and McCain are elitists because all they can see here is way to divide people yet further, while what Obama is doing is showing why people Are divided, and speaking to what needs to done to bring them, US, back together.

I just hope the voting public can see this.

  1. I just can't believe that the American people CAN'T figure out which candidate is telling the unvarnished truth. I think Americans are smarter than that, particularly after being lied to over and over for the last seven-plus years. We won't believe Hillary, McCain or the Shriekers on teevee. Obama is the real thing.

    It's a silly superstition, but my fingers are crossed in the hopes that he wins not only the nomination, but the presidency.

  2. Elite.

    If a group of people are elite, because they actually are superior, ie: like cleverer, nuclear physicists would be elite. or stronger/faster, olympic athletes would be elite.
    That's OK. Elite is good.

    If a group of peaple are elite because of nothing special, like they're daddies are richer, or their houses are bigger, then that's crap, Elite is bad.

    People hear the word "elite" and think automatically of the bad kind.
