The Veils Are Dropping

One thing about Mr. Obama: his philosophical underpinnings are never far from the surface. Nothing esoteric here--

"You go into 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."

It appears that religion, respect for the second amendment, and the law of nations are just outdated prejudices, equivalent to racial and ethnic hatred. No cause to take back what I said in mid-February about one of Mrs. O's speeches: "soulless Marxist rhetoric." Save ALL of this for the fall, assuming his nomination.
