231. I guess that tombstone is making reading hard for you...



"I'm from a middle class town in Ohio, and I have middle class family in Pennsylvania. Not all of us are bitter, not all of us have a problem with the U.S. governmet, not all of us grab a gun out of desperation, not all of us run to church because we've been out of work for 25 years."


Reading comprehention not a stong point, huh?

Try again... Obama was talking about the rural folks who have become single issue voters or have rejected politics entirely, and why they've done so.

You are trying to spin a simple and straight forward comment about a particular group of issue voters and non-voters, as a blanket attack on all people in these areas. Broadening the scope of a statement to imply it was an attack when it wasn't is a clear indication that, as with all the folks attacking oabama, you can't attack with what he actually said, so you have to distort it.

Which is why the rest of your post is pure race baiting BS, and has nothing to do with the actual comments Obama made.
