Obama Just Can’t be Wrong….

<snip> Barack Obama admitted Saturday that he chose his words poorly when he told a group of California donors that small-town Americans “cling” to guns and religion and xenophobia out of bitterness over lost jobs, but for the second day in a row stood by the comments and weathered pointed criticism from Hillary Clinton.

“I didn’t say it as well as I should have, because the truth is these traditions that are passed on from generation to generation, those are important,” Obama said in Muncie, Ind., minutes before Clinton jumped in and called his remarks “elitist.”

“But what is absolutely true is that people want to feel like they’re being listened to. And so they pray, and they count on each other and they count on their families,” Obama continued.  </snip>

Anyone besides me notice that he can’t ever apologize?  That must be because he can’t ever be wrong?  Right?  Wrong!  Soooooo….. let’s see if I have this correct:

  • Calling the US the US of KKKA is just “misunderstood” and should be accepted
  • Saying that “…it’s not surprising then 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.” is ok and true so just accept it
  • Telling kids to stop acting like monkeys and get the heck out of the tree before they get hurt is bad, requires a call to the (armed) police and a $75 fine
  • really I could go on… couldn’t we all…

Just trying to understand the ground rules here…. free speech is only free IF it agrees with your views Obama?

……. How do you spell hypocrite?  B-A-R-A-C-K
