Pennsylvania Welcomes Barack Obama

“You can take my church once you pry my cold dead hands from it!”

cling to guns and religion

Barack Obama:

 But the truth is, is that, our challenge is to get people persuaded that we can make progress when there’s not evidence of that in their daily lives. 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. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. 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.

Well, perhaps the above picture should illustrate what Barack Obama seems to think of everything outside of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
