Obama tries to change the subject: I’m “out of touch?” Update: McCain campaign says No Sale

posted at 9:37 pm on April 11, 2008 by Allahpundit

Hey, Barry? The objection here isn’t that you’re “out of touch” (as Trent Lott is), it’s that you’re a condescending, crypto-Marxist, elitist liberal poseur. And your what’s-the-matter-with-Kansas apologia tonight in Indiana doesn’t do a blessed thing to change that impression.

Update (Ed): John McCain’s campaign has decided to keep the heat on Barack Obama for his remarks. After Obama tried to weasel his way out of his April 6th remarks by focusing only on the “bitter” portion of the quote, Team McCain reminded people immediately that bitterness was the least of Obama’s accusations (emphasis mine):

“Instead of apologizing to small town Americans for dismissing their values, Barack Obama arrogantly tried to spin his way out of his outrageous San Francisco remarks. Only an elitist who attributes religious faith and gun ownership to bitterness would think that tax cuts for the rich include families who make $75,000 per year. Only an elitist would say that people vote their values only out of frustration. Barack Obama thinks he knows your hopes and fears better than you do. You can’t be more out of touch than that.” –Tucker Bounds, Spokesman John McCain 2008

They missed the xenophobia and bigotry that Obama accused small-town voters of having, but give the McCain folks some credit. They’re staying on this by the minute.

Update: Candor from Marc Ambinder: “We’re dealing tonight with a classic Kinseyian ‘gaffe,’ where a candidate says what he means and then is forced to account for it.” Plus:

The elite media and most Democrats will say… “yeah.. .So? Obama is simply describing world as we know it.”

I have friends who shoot squirrels and actually eat them.

winemkr on April 12, 2008 at 1:05 AM

How do they eat squirrels with few if any teeth?

Do they just swallow what’s left of the squirrels whole?

Ah- my bad. Allow me to re-phrase: Don’t you have trouble drinking beer when you lack teeth? Did Wal Mart have the overalls and sleeveless t-shirts you wanted? Do they let you in Winco barefoot?

Guess what- the same elitists who view small town residents who hunt squirrels, own guns and go to church as toothless, ignorant, racists are the same ones who view beer drinking Wal Mart shoppers as… toothless, ignorant racists.

I grew up 7 miles from a small town of 2500. I’ve hunted- and eaten- squirrel. And not because I had to. I live in Minneapolis now, still have all my teeth, hunt deer (with a freezer full of venison to prove it), and wouldn’t hesitate to go squirrel hunting (and eating) again. To hell with anyone who has a problem with it.

What is so wrong with your own self esteem that you’d stoop to such negative characterizations out of a false sense of superiority when the same characterizations could just as easily be applied to yourself?

I grew up, in part anyway, 2 miles from a small town of 400 so far out in the sticks that God probably couldn’t find it and I didn’t and don’t shot little defenseless squirrels and I especially would not do it if I didn’t have to.

This is resembling something akin to a soap opera and get’s stranger by the minute.

One thing is for certain, Obama is nothing more than another blame America politician. Instead of standing behind his remarks it’s “you don’t understand, let me explain”.

While anything Obama has to say won’t waver his extremist left support. Anyone who thinks for themself, is self sufficient, and has a ounce of pride, Obama’s remarks will give pause to those who fit that description.

Create discontent; incite the masses; destroy long standing traditions; and, blame all ills on the government and it’s surrogates . . . sound like a scene from “Reds”, but no, it’s just an Obama political rally.

I live so far back you have to wipe the owl crap off the clock to see what time it is. And how dare you call squirrels “defenseless”! Have you seen the teeth? All members of Rodentia are menaces!! Ask Jimmah Carter!

I shoot squirrels. Not because I have to, but because I can. I eat squirrels. Not because I have to, but because I want to. I eat deer, duck, goose, turkey, crappie, trout, and lots of other randomly slaughtered “defenseless” critters. The chicken in the freezer comes from the back yard, and don’t get me started on frog giggin’!

There are millions like me, but fortunately millions more squirrels. I have all my teeth, and a college education, and a Mercedes, and a Saviour.

So what does Obama do to get my vote? He calls me a redneck cracker. And so does MB4, who despite his/her apparent all-American upbringing went to the other side, condescending and insulting me in the most blatant terms, perhaps worst of all believing that my intelligence is assailable.

And this is the problem with our nation and our culture; so many Americans deny what America is. That’s the message behind “Hope” and “Change”: the idea that we hope to be changed. We don’t, and some thick skulls need to be inculcated to that fact.

I’m a conservative but I’m not buying this as a major gaffe. Sorry but does this come as a surprise as to how liberals think? There really isn’t anything untrue about what he said. The most inartful (to use the current favourite word) thing, perhaps, is to include religion in a list of things that might otherwise be taken as negatives. But it isn’t frankly incorrect to say that people in times of trouble or need turn to religion. In this regard this is much more of a “mis-speak” than Hillary telling us how she dodged sniper fire, or thumb-wrestled the emperor of Japan to win world war 2 or once drank a gallon of yak’s milk for a bet.

petefrt on April 12, 2008 at 9:14 AM

Whats important is the context of his speech. Consider the group group of elites he was pandering too. Was he saying it out of sympathy like “These people really need our help thats why I’m running for President” or was it more like ” I know I can get their votes if they think I understand and care about their problems”. I’m going with the latter.

Look at the staging of this event. Only one single black person in the background during Obama’s diatribe. And one Filipina looking women.

Does anyone think for a moment that the USMC Red T-Shirt wearing fat white guy is there by accident? Or the old guy with the VFW cap? Or the scores of soccer Moms?

The other day Michelle Obama was caught at an event in New York shreiking out, “We need more white people in the setting.” And asking blacks to kindly move to other seats.

Does anyone doubt that this particular event, a day after Obama’s big flub is more of the same? Careful choreographing designed to ease fears of America’s Whites.

Sloan Morganstern on April 12, 2008 at 10:08 AM

Obama would do well to speak to the merits of the issues, rather than trying to undermine his opponents’ viewpoints by attacking their motivations, or by insinuating they’re bad or unstable people. We won’t allow you, Mr. Obama, to say the reason we oppose your views is because we’re somehow a bad or inferior people. If you want to discuss gun control, then speak to us about the Second Amendment, individual liberty and public safety. Leave the personal attacks out of it.

The last time I heard something as ugly as this was from some other lefty pol who said the reason Reagan was so popular is that he appealed to our baser instincts of greed and racism. People who throw out crap like that don’t deserve to be taken seriously.

There is a lot incorrect6 about what he said. He speaks about his subjects as if they are specimens to be studied. He can’t imagine that people:

– practice their religion because they believe it to be true in good times and bad.
– truly believe in the right to bear arms, in good times and bad
– see that illegal aliens drain our country of resources, especially in schools, hospitals, and prisons…as well as depress wages…

…and he said it to a group if limousine liberals in San Francisco who lapped it up and laughed heartily at the poor rubes out in hick country who have been driven to such desperation.

“If only they had enough state provided benefits, they wouldn’t need to believe in such quaint ideas as gun rights and this God thing. Pass the brie, please.”

Spirit of 1776 on April 12, 2008 at 11:14 AM

Note that he stared out talking about Americans’ anger and frustraion, and how “politicians” are asking why they’re angry. Then he says, “This just happened… I wanna make a point,” as if what he said yesterday just popped into his mind to illustrate what he was saying. Apparently he thinks that he’s clever enough to explain his assholian remarks in San Fran without appearing to do so purposefully and officially.

Regarding those Typical White People who “cling to” guns and religion, He replaced “cling to” with “take refuge in,” and added “family.” So, if not for Republicans, Typical White People wouldn’t need guns, religion, and family?

“…they’ve seen jobs shipped oversease…” because of the 2nd highest corporate tax rates in the world. Gotta raise them taxes to solve this problem.

And don’t forget, he’s saying that this problem has been going on for 25 years. If only Jimmah Cahtah had been annointed Il Duce for life, everything would still be grand, I guess.

Barack Hussein Obama is an evil man married to a witch. God save us!

2.) The quote in question is “A gaffe is when a politician tells the truth.”, which implies that by calling it a “Kinseyian/Kinsleyian Gaffe”, you accept his statement as true.

Nice fantasy dialogue, slick, but it would never happen. The Maverick bit applies to when McCain gives the middle finger to the GOP and works with Democrats. And given he won’t engage in personal attacks on anyone except members of his own (declared) party, I don’t see him calling Nancy Pelosi a druggie. Loathe as I am to admit it, he’s also probably to much of a gentleman.
Seriously though, if you’re looking for macho dem slapping, you’ve got the wrong candidate nominated. McCain is going to need Pelosi in his pocket for Global Warming legislation. When he floats that turd into the punchbowl, a lot of the GOP is going to go beserk; gas prices are terrible now, and that is a guaranteed hike. He’ll need every vote he can get. Please don’t pretend McCain is going to be tough on Congress; McCain likes making backroom deals with the libs. You’re going to see a lot of cooperation between the executive and Congress if Mccain is elected, and it’s going to be very bad…they’re going to soak us bigtime.

peacenprosperity on April 12, 2008 at 3:19 PM

I believe in Washington — for defense. With respect to economics, we don’t have central planning a ‘la the old Soviet Union, so I don’t think the government is responsible for that. The laws of supply and demand are, however, responsible, and we the people drive those laws. Price of oil too high? Don’t buy that oversized engine like the hemi in the Chrysler 300 that Barack drives. I have a Mazda 3, gets 25MPG on the streets, and over 30 on the highway. What does your car get, Barack? The only other possible response for government intervention is to nuke China, whose super-heated economy is driving the demand for oil upward (do you really want to do that, Barack?).

What I do expect the laws to do is protect my pension and not to take over a third of my income away from me to fund junk things like embryonic stem cell research. I’d rather see us exploring the rest of the Solar System than to spend money on something whose only benefit is to be the philosophic handmaiden to abortion. I’d rather have a new type of spy satellite than to let people buy cigarettes with the give-back on their food stamps. And I don’t think either the President or the Congress deserve a pension — the interesting financial circumstances of the Clintons have proven that just having been President is enough of a pension.

And funny Barack should mention pensions — aren’t pensions a rich thing, and ought they not to be taken away and distributed to the masses?

I’m not quite sure where you’re coming from. Although my message may have appeared to be in support of Obama, I assure you it was certainly not. I find MB4 to be on the other side from me in the “Two Americas” on this issue.

If Obomba were white, he would not even be on the radar screen. That’s not a racist remark, that’s just a fact.

He’s an empty suit, who simply regurgitates every chunk of Marxist, socialist crap that he’s daisy-chained in that clump of gray matter that he calls a brain, over the course of his meaningless life.

I, for one, am so sick of looking at, much less listening to him, and that pathetic creature that he married. I hope he is soundly defeated and departs the scene, stage left.

Defenseless? Squirrels? Ha!

I got mugged by a squirrel in Manhattan once. Little tree rat grabbed my chocolate milk shake. I wasn’t fancying a run-in with rabies (that had to wait til I moved to Westchester), so I let the squirrel have it. I only wished I had a gun at the time….

To keep out all those bitter, gun toting religiously fanatical poor people?

Oh please, don’t even try it with me, hon. I cast no judgements and have no problems with guns or hunting squirrel, pigeons or rats.

To keep out the knee jerk faux patriotic crowd that’s been here of late.

If you dare dissent from what they believe is the norm you are called all types of names. You are accused of being a Democrat, a socialist, a Marxist, a lib, a Leftist, a Big City Vamper type, a pagan, an atheist, an anti illegal immigration sympathizer, please the list is endless.
If you notice, many of the Libertarian posters that were here are long gone.

No one wants to hear the Fringe speaking loud and constant. If one wants that name calling nah nah nah nah nah abuse they can go over to Kos or DU and listen to them there.

Defenseless? Squirrels? Ha!

I got mugged by a squirrel in Manhattan once. Little tree rat grabbed my chocolate milk shake. I wasn’t fancying a run-in with rabies (that had to wait til I moved to Westchester), so I let the squirrel have it. I only wished I had a gun at the time….

Maybe like cats and dogs, chocolate will kill them.

I saw one fighting with a rat when passing a NYC park one day, which surprised me. I thought they really steered clear of one another. But up here they dose the small parks regularly with rat poison which I would imagine takes the aquirrels out also if they eat it.

The only people who are makinga big freaking deal about this is the silly excuse for a press, it will pass, by next week it will not even matter.

Anyone for bets?

MB4 is a Kos Kid , or writes like one.. I’m new here!

Nah, just a crazy and intelligent libertarian.

You CAN”T be serious. Go look at your postings from yesterday. You and your Mom go out and do missionary work among the great unwashed salt of the earth. Sorry, dear, you are all judgement.

Obama’s Campagin –> The Audacity of Hype!

This guy is a complete disaster waiting to happen. How can any sane person be supporting him?

+1, even if I disagree with him, now and then.

The better question is: How can any sane person not be supporting his opposition?

Principles.

I’ll place one. We have witnessed one more piece of the Obama puzzle. It shouldn’t shock anyone that Obama is capable of willingly tossing whomever is necessary to throw under the bus to advance his campaign. Grandma “Obama” was first. While speaking to “enlightened” San Francisco citizens and trying to raise money, under the bus goes “small town America” who holds to silly beliefs because they don’t know better.

I can’t help but think that most American’s are looking for a candidate that tell’s us what he / she stands for instead of telling American’s what we “should” or “do” stand for.

I get enough preaching to in church, I don’t need it from my government too.

The fact that an invited “billionaire for Hillary” operative went to the billionaire row party, had the speech recorded in secret, then gave it to the HuffPoo, normally Obama’s playground, to give Hillary the opportunity to get back on top, at the most critical time, is Shakespearean.

She’s so full of caca, and in the same billionaires’ laps, and might get away with it because Obama’s naivite made him say such stupid things in San Francisco, in the bossom of idealistic, rich, elitist, billionaire filth.

If she does, imagine the wrath, the hell Pelosi, Reid, Richardson, the Kennedys, and a slu of others will pay.
