I have no problem with that. I think that's a very good decision. I think he ought to write off those racist, gun hugging, bible thumpin' bigots and go on out to Oregon, where he can talk to people who "understand."
However, my big problem with him has always been his inherent dishonesty. He simply can't tell the truth in public, no matter how much it hurts. In private, he was honest in his opinion regarding those small town hicks in Pennsylvania. He can't do it in public.
His wife, Michelle, is going to campaign in Kentucky on Monday. Wow, good luck with that. I hope the attendees have to go through rotten tomato detectors or she'll be wearing a salad.
Obama said he just won't have time to campaign in KY before the primary on Tuesday. Seems he got called back to Washington for some votes. Geez, I guess that makes TWO votes he attended this year? But he does have time for campaigning, even in states that have already held their primaries:
Obama spoke to more than 8,000 supporters in Louisville Monday night — his first time in the state since August. He said he had hoped to spend more time in Kentucky earlier this week but was called back to Washington, D.C. for votes on Tuesday.But this is what really set me off, his BS explanations and rationalizations:
Since then, he’s stumped in Oregon, which will hold its primary by mail on Tuesday, and South Dakota, where Democrats vote June 3, as well as in states that have already held their primary elections, such as Michigan and Missouri.
Obama conceded that he has a steep challenge to get his message and background to voters in states such as Kentucky — where he trails Sen. Hillary Clinton by 27 points, according to a poll published earlier this week — and West Virginia, where voters chose Clinton over Obama by 40 points on Tuesday.Well, Senator Obamama, I have reproduced a map of those "middle" states for you. BTW, Illinois is one of those states in the middle. If you look carefully, you will note that Illinois is closer to both WV and KY than Arkansas is. Hell, IL even shares a border with KY, unlike AR.
"What it says is that I'm not very well known in that part of the country," Obama said. "Sen. Clinton, I think, is much better known, coming from a nearby state of Arkansas. So it's not surprising that she would have an advantage in some of those states in the middle." (source)
Does anyone actually believe what this ass-wipe says?
