"They" Cling To Guns Or Religion

The real Barack Obama is starting to leak out. Earlier this month he referred to babies as a punishment, an interesting comment from one who claims to be a follower of Jesus Christ. Now, he has belittled people in Pennsylvania for clinging to religion.

"You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them," Obama said.

"And 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."

As an aide to John McCain said, the comments are "remarkable and extremely revealing."

Barack's words show not just a disdain for the average American, an attitude ingrained by twenty years of Jeremiah Wright sermons, but they also hint as his opinion of religious faith. Religion for Obama is a useful tool of manipulation. He can be Christian or Muslim, just as he can be black or white, depending on what is useful at the moment. Whatever will help him get votes, that is what Obama will become.

We will see more slips of the tongue from Obama before this race is run. His kind of arrogance is impossible to hide.
