Barack's Out of Touch With Middle America? Ironic, Coming From Hillary Clinton

Senator Barack Obama has once again hinted at his true character. In a recent speech, he commented on small-town Midwesterners by saying that "it's not surprising they get bitter, 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." Let me sum those words up with my own farm boy, stupid, ignorant, and completely retarded brain: people like me like guns, church, and upholding our immigration laws (and we're also apparently racist in Obama's opinion) because I am frustrated. Excuse me, sir, but I believe in those things for substantially more important and worthwhile reasons than that I'm FRUSTRATED with things. The worst part about this is that Hillary Clinton is playing off these comments in a campaign add and saying he is "out of touch" with Middle America, when she has the exact same attitudes! We here in South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, and all the rest live in what's called "fly-over states", in that we are flown over by politicians going back and forth from the important, elitist coast states. These kinds of elitist attitudes have no place in the hearts of Midwest American people. The Democratic party has become the party of the wealthy elites, and the rest of us are just pawns to be wooed and convinced to vote for them when they need a couple more states under their belts to win an election. If they spent any time out here, they would realize that we are some of the smartest, innovative, tolerant, and down to earth people on the planet...but they wouldn't know that, would they? Washington D.C. and New York are quite a ways away from the heart and soul of America...the Midwest.
