Photoshop of the week: Typical liberal snob; Update: New Obama spin – “I didn’t say it as well as I could have”
A big thank you to reader Tennyson, who cooked up this fabulous photoshop that pushes back at small-town-trashing Barack Obama. All native-born, gun-owning, God-fearing, pro-immigration enforcement, pro-sovereignty Pennsylvanians are grateful to you, Tennyson! Yo, Barack. Get over yourself already:
Transcript via Ambinder:
So I made this statement– so, here’s what rich. Senator Clinton says ‘No, I don’t think that people are bitter in Pennsylvania. You know, I think Barack’s being condescending.’ John McCain says, ‘Oh, how could he say that? How could he say people are bitter? You know, he’s obviously out of touch with people.’
“Out of touch? Out of touch? I mean, John McCain—it took him three tries to finally figure out that the home foreclosure crisis was a problem and to come up with a plan for it, and he’s saying I’m out of touch? Senator Clinton voted for a credit card-sponsored bankruptcy bill that made it harder for people to get out of debt after taking money from the financial services companies, and she says I’m out of touch? No, I’m in touch. I know exactly what’s going on.
The hopelessness of audacity.
Congrats, Barry O: You’ve won Knee Deep in the Hooah’s Jackass of the Day Award.
Update 11:20am Eastern 4/12: Obama in Indiana this morning is still spinning. He has ditched “cling” for “comfort,” and is clinging to the “bitter” part of his quotation to defend The Bitter Truth of his diss against small-town Pennsylvanians:
“I didn’t say it [as] well as I could have,” Obama confessed today during a town hall in Muncie, Ind., in response to the controversy he described as a “political flare-up because I said something that everyone knows is true.”
He then launched into a broad explanation of what he was trying to express: “There are a whole bunch of folks in small towns in Pennsylvania, in towns right here in Indiana, in my home town in Illinois, who are bitter. They are angry… So I said, well ya know, when you’re bitter, you turn to what you can count on. So people, ya know they vote about guns or they take comfort from their faith, and their family, and their community, and they get mad about illegal immigrants who are coming over to this country, or they get frustrated about how things are changing. That’s a natural response.”
