"You got into 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."
That quote is a window into Barack Obama's world. There are the enlightened few, like Barack Obama, and then there are the "little people" who are bitter and cling to "guns," "religion," or "anti-immigrant sentiment" because their primitive brains have left them frustrated and unable to see the big picture. The "bitter people" need a man like Barack Obama in the White House, a Harvard grad who enjoys arugula and basking in the limelight in Europe, to make the decisions for them that tragically, they're just not learned enough to make on their own.
The deep irony here is that many of the frustrated "bitter" people that Obama peers down on from on high are just as qualified to be President of the United States as he is. Obama has never served in the military, in the House, or as a governor. He has never run a business, was just elected to the Senate in 2004, and has had exactly one hard-fought political victory in his entire career (against Hillary Clinton). So, who would be more qualified to be President: Obama or, let's say, a guy who served a couple of tours in the military, got out, started his own successful small business, and has served a couple of terms on his local city council? I have few doubts that the city councilman would be far more in touch with the real world and more competent to lead the country than someone who was so haughty and dare I say, messianic that he proclaimed,
I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.
This guy has never run a business, run a state, or served in the military, but he's going to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet? There are people locked away in rubber rooms, drooling on the floor and talking to tiny pink elves, who are less delusional than Obama.
......And that is ultimately the problem with having a President who combines limited experience with towering arrogance. Putting Barack Obama in charge of the United States would be like making a cocky high school class President the new CEO of Wal-Mart. Not only would he not know what to do, he wouldn't know what not to do, or even that he doesn't know the difference.
