How do you know the left is out of touch with the American public? Could it be because their Presidential nominee believes that during tough economic times people are worried about the price of arugala?
“Anybody gone into Whole Foods lately and see what they charge for arugula?” [Senator Barack Obama] said. “I mean, they’re charging a lot of money for this stuff.”
The state of Iowa, for all of its vast food production, does not have a Whole Foods, a leading natural and organic foods market. The closest? Omaha, Minneapolis or Kansas City.
Or, maybe it is because Barack Obama is on record as stating that the only reason to have faith or support the second ammendment is because you’re a bitter American:
[Senator Barack Obama] said: “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. 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.”
Or maybe, it is because they think in these times it is okay to enthusiastically run a man for Senate that believes women do NOT deserve to earn the same as men:
No, I’m not being fair. Each of those examples show why top of the ticket Democratic candidates are out of touch with the American public, but not why the activists on the left don’t understand the values of the majority of Americans. For that, we just need to consider that they think that the fact that a 17 year old girl getting pregnant is a scandal.
It’s not a scandal. It’s just something that happens. And, it just reinforces the fact that Sarah Palin is exactly what this country needs. A real person, who is struggling with the same real struggles we all face. No if ands or buts, Sarah Palin becomes more likable everyday.
