You know, just when I start to, in my most honest moments, maybe be willing to admit that someday there could be a Republican presidential candidate so bad that I would actually vote Democrat ... this weekend comes along ...

Hillary downs a shot of whiskey whilst drinking a beer attempting to show that she is not the elitist she wants to portray her competition as being. Now, don't get me wrong, I am not a purist. I just have a real problem with anyone who wants to be president thinking an appropriate photo opp in this day and age is of her downing a shot.

And then you have Obama referring to those in the heartland of our country as being bitter people who are "clinging to religion and guns". Now, he apologizes and says that he could have stated it better. I am not sure, how, if that is how he feels, he could have said it any other way.

"Clinging to religion ..." I'd like to know what he feels we should be clinging to instead.

Apparently we have Hillary's answer to that question -- a bottle of Crown Royal.

That's enough to make Bill smoke a cigar I suspect.

Once regular reader catching up on some reading and chiming in:...

I heard Obama's point to be that people are clinging to religion and guns instead of daring to hope for something better.

As for what we should be clinging to instead... Perhaps instead of clinging to religion we should be clinging to Jesus? Or at least, (possibly) to Obama's point, be clinging to a desire for a world put to rights--the kind of thing Jesus desires.

Hope you're well Todd. As always, I enjoy your posts (even if I do have to catch up on a couple of month's worth at once).

Hey Mike. Thanks for stopping by. I hope married life is treating you well.

I agree entirely with your comment. I just feel that Obama's phrasing said a whole lot about where his thoughts really were.

However, that said, I cannot imagine being in the fishbowl that presidential candidates are in.
