Does anyone else think this election has been going on for a little too long and they are running out of things to piss and moan about?
Full Disclosure: I have been a little busy with taxes and my mom to watch the news or read the paper besides my horoscope so I haven’t been paying attention but seems to me they have run out of things to say and are reaching now.
This whole “bitter” thing that Obama said. Is it really that offensive? C’mon, can’t they do better than that? Would someone explain to me why his comment was so offending to the people of Pennsylvania? And when did Pennsylvania become part of the Midwest? I’m just wondering.
“You go 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.”
Hillary has called him and elitist because of these remarks. Really? I discussed this here so I won’t beat a dead horse. Obama can be called a lot of things but elitist seems a stretch.
Hell, I’m bitter and I don’t live in Pennsylvania. What’s wrong with being bitter? We should all be bitter. Hasn’t that been what this whole campaign is about? The dissapointment we all have with the current administration and how we want to no longer feel bitter about our government and the people who make the decisions for us?
He said it like it is. Something this campaign has been sadly lacking. Yes they are backstabbing one another relentlessly but they are oh so politically correct about it. We have been subjected to this campaign for over a year now and the only thing left for the remaining candidates is to have a real honest to goodness smack down. I say bring it on. Make it Pay-Per-View. Lets have all three of them in the ring in spandex suits going at one another. You know they want to. And we all want to see it.
I think the strategy in political circles is to wear down the public so much that the vast middle stays home on election day, because they’re so sick of it. At that point, only the fringe will come to the polls, so the election chicanery will have that much more impact.
yeah and then they can do it all over again four years later when nothing has changed. It just makes me so um…bitter.
Hmmmmm…….yeah it’s been so long in progress for these campaigns I can’t remember who the others were running. I saw signs for Ron Paul….I thought he had dropped out.
Personally I like the ring idea. Put them all in, fight it out, and give us one from each side to consider. Better yet….take them all out of office and put in house wives/husbands, people that really know how to have a budget…no offense here….but skip the attorneys.
