"Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we're hardwired not to always think clearly when we're scared," Obama said Saturday evening in remarks at a small Democratic fundraiser Saturday evening. "And the country's scared."
Yup, all those people who are part of the 10% unemployed and have lost their homes are "not thinking clearly" because of fear. They also seem to ignore facts and science and I guess revert to Cro-Magnon Men who are scared of lightning or something rather then right thinking men and women. Way to score an own goal 3 weeks before a major election.
What would be interesting is you delve why Americans are actually afraid. It isn't because they ignore facts and science but they see the Left as incompetent and have wasted $2 trillion and we still might get a double dip recession. They can see that no one in the White House has run a business or had to create a job that was not underwritten by bond purchases by the Red Chinese. You add to this the condescension dripping from Obama in this speech and you wonder who is still in this guys corner.
What is interesting is the first bitter clingers speech was supposed to be a secret fund-raiser for the glitterati. You can insult the electorate behind closed doors just to play to the crowd and kind of get away with it. This article says that this fund-raiser was open to the press and thus might be what Obama really thinks about the electorate.
I have to agree that his should scare the pants off of any Dem going forward. It seems like he doesn't care anymore and is just spouting off. It seems that he knows he won't have to face these science and facts challenged, fearful, Americans that aren't thinking clearly in 2012. It looks more and more that he is declaring "Mission Accomplished" and one term would be more than enough for him. Um, I think it is time for Hillary to start fund-raising because her time may come 4 years early.
