I don’t think Obama needs Wright’s help anymore. He is digging his own grave just fine.
On small Pennsylvania communities:
“It’s not surprising then they get bitter,” he (Obama) said. “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.”
Kind of funny because he went to a church built on bitterness.
You’d think a guy who went to elite private schools in Hawaii and then to Harvard would be able to connect the dots like that a little more.
Black or white, I think someone who has privilige all his life begins to think they are somehow better than others. Maybe it embitters him though to think that people vote for him because he’s the ‘poor, abused black guy’. Do you think it bothers him that he gets votes out of pity and not out of accomplishment?
He seems very bitter as does his wife, his pastor etc, so he probably assumes everyone else is bitter too.
He is a politician and he sells his soul for votes.
