74. I was impressed with obama's saying something substantive....and he was spot on!
Yes, many people are bitter. They have lost confidence in their government. And they have been, at the same time, sold a bill of goods on guns, and abortion, and gay marriage. Wedge issues like these have been used by the Republicans to appeal to these voters. As well as the philosophy of government as part of the problem, not the solution...yadayada....another appeal to those disenchanted with government used by the Reaganistas and Bushistas too.

so obama recognizes this OBVIOUS TRUTH and has the nerve to mention it? Impressive. Then Hillary and her clone McCain raise hell over him mentioning that people are bitter.

I heard about this bruhaha a little while ago on CNN....they were making it sound like a big scandal, something that could spell the defeat of Obama. I was wondering what the hell Obama said that was so harmful!!! I thought I had missed something. OK, I was playing with dog at the time.....so maybe I missed something. I STILL don't know what the hubbub is all about.

Seems to me a lot people ARE bitter. Obama points this out. He is dissed for pointing it out.

I'm sure that the bitter people will be impressed by candidates not only ignoring their bitterness, not doing anything about it....but actually having the nerve to criticize acknowledging the fact that they have bitterness!!!!!!!

Earth to McCain and Clinton: people out their are bitter, many don't trust their government. Apparently, you are so clueless that you don't even know this....
