Do you like guns or religion? Then you must be bitter.

Here's the latest bit of the great unifier talking about PA.

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 they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. 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.

He really cares doesn't he?

Now match this with what BHO and his wife has said about wanting to change Americans.

He's not really... reaching out to people of different politics.

Victor Davis Hanson takes this statement apart point by point.

And Glen Reynolds has two roundups one here and another here

If you're running as a glamorous blank slate on which people project their own utopian fantasies, you've got to be very careful not to give the game away - especially when the game turns out to be the usual cliched elite disdain for the great unwashed.
