How Dumb Are The Media?

Either the media are trying to obscure Obama's real sin, or they're so damned stupid that they don't understand the true insult contained in Obama's condescending characterization of rural Pennsylvanians.

Over the weekend, I saw a clip of the controversy on CNN and the only word from his speech to liberal San Francisco snobs that they talked about was "bitter."

Bitter? That's nothing. How about implying that we could all be cured of our religion, supposed racism and Constitutional rights by big government?

Here's an example from Time magazine.

"Obama used the word "bitter" when he should have said "frustrated," said Donna Brazile, an undecided Super Delegate who ran Al Gore's presidential campaign in 2000. "Clearly Obama's comments were "unartful," but not inaccurate. Polls show most voters are dissatisfied with the current direction of the country. And politicians have always played on their fears—and used issues like crime, welfare, gay rights and abortion—to draw distinctions without addressing the deep issues that voters care about."
