115. What's so stupid?
I've said before...when you lose control in one area, you want to keep it in another. Barack has seen all of this before as a community organizer in Chicago with the steel mill closings. He's had all of these conversations before. He represents a mid-western state and he knows mid-western values. When people have lost their jobs and all control of that situation, they don't want to give an inch on other issues (gun control, immigration, gay marriage etc..) Those become proxy issues. Barack has dealt with that before in Illinois. The only mistake he made was not fully explaining it at the fun raiser, but these are valid points to make nevertheless. These are very realistic human reactions.
