Mr. Obama regrets.

The Washington Post reports that Barack Obama on Saturday expressed regret about the way he phrased a remark describing the plight of Americans who live in small towns.
Here is the money quote:

"It's not surprising that 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."

What did he mean to say? That they were just "typical white people"? To borrow a phrase from the black Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson one wonders "what lies beneath" Obama's condescending remarks. He like many in Washington are out of touch with many middle class Americans. We are not bitter. We are pissed off! We are not "anti-immigrant" we are anti-illegal immigrant. Once he gets that through his liberal ivy league educated head he might might understand that America is more than just the view of the liberal elites running the Democratic party.
