Barack Obama has quite definatively shown his true colours most explicity to date recently at a fundraiser in San Francisco. In it he referred to the people of small town America in the following terms:
In the heat increasingly bitter Democratic presidential nomination battle, these disgraceful comments by Obama have been leaped on by Hillary Clinton as evidence of the "elitist", "demeaning" and "out of touch". The McCain camp's spokesman Steve Schmidt said of the comments: "It shows an elitism and condescension towards hardworking Americans that is nothing short of breathtaking," Schmidt said. "It is hard to imagine someone running for president who is more out of touch with average Americans."Originally Posted by [url=http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mayhill-fowler/obama-no-surprise-that-ha_b_96188.html
This will obviously be a massivly embarrassing faux paus by Obama. He has revealed himself as not the candidate of change, but an old fashioned American liberal with a negetive view of the American people. With this in mind it is not surprising that Obama made these comments in San Francisco and not in the areas he spoke of. One could not imagine them going down so well there. He has form for tailoring his message and his tastes to suit the audience. The candidate who transcends race attends a church enthraled with Black separatism for twenty years. The candidate whose campaign claims he will rebuild America's industries with narrow-minded protectionism in public assures those same foreigners that they have nothing to fear from him on that score. And now this. Thankfully, he may have just commited political suicide, if not in the primaries, then in the November election.
