"If I worded things in a way that made people offended, I deeply regret that," Obama said in an interview with the Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal.
No, what he regrets is being caught. And being called on it.
The original comment was not made under stress. Indeed, it was made in San Francisco to a bunch of folks who are his supporters. He was explaining to his supporters why he doesn't do well with that group. In his mind they are gun toting Christians who believe in individual rights and responsibilities, have seen many of their construction jobs go to illegal aliens and their factory jobs overseas. Plus, he seems them as racists. Hussien spoke his belief.
He condemned their faith and their beliefs, and who they see themselves as being. Nothing worse could be said to them and of them.
The Left wing elitists... those who travel in their private jets while telling us we must not drive our car to the airport...purely and truly do not understand.
Harboring guilt feelings over their money, which in many cases was not earned by them, they have sought to buy forgiveness. But, never having to do without, they think they have the divine right to correct the world's problems by fiat... by using our hard earned money. And if we resist, then we are evil.
Hussein is not yet rich but he knows that he will never lack anything. There will never be a question as to if his family will be housed, fed, clothed and educated. He will always be "taken care of."
The elitist Left wing Demos are tone deaf when it comes to the rest of us. But when trying to gain control of us they always manage to show their true feelings. They always fail to understand that we are Jacksonians.
Jacksonian honor must be acknowledged by the outside world. One is entitled to, and demands, the appropriate respect: recognition of rights and just claims, acknowledgment of one’s personal dignity. Many Americans will still fight, sometimes with weapons, when they feel they have not been treated with the proper respect. But even among the less violent, Americans stand on their dignity and rights. Respect is also due age....
The first principle of this code is self-reliance. Real Americans, many Americans feel, are people who make their own way in the world. They may get a helping hand from friends and family, but they hold their places in the world through honest work. They don’t slide by on welfare, and they don’t rely on inherited wealth or connections.
Hussein has violated about every thing many of us hold dear.
