Obama Elitist? No Way!

Evan Bakker

Of all the people in America––I mean all of the people––who would be the last person you’d expect to see downing a shot of whiskey and talking about her last trip to the shooting range? If you’re thinking Hillary Clinton, you thought right.

Surprisingly, she’s shifted her focus of experience from politics to shooting. The Senator took it to the bar in Pennsylvania and remembered those good old days when her father taught her how to shoot a gun.

And she’s using this fact to take a stab at Barack Obama after he made a controversial, but honest assertion that working-class people are “bitter” because of unfair government policies and “cling to guns and religion” as a result.

Now, critics are postulating that Obama is an “elitist” because of his misunderstanding of American workers. So, Clinton took this new opportunity to pounce on Obama with her claim that she is in touch with Americans, while he is not.

But if we look past her long record of expert shooting and her brave swig of whiskey, we find that nothing of substance lies behind it. Senator Clinton is a typical Washington politician who has been essentially out of touch with the “average” American for over 30 years.

Obama spent part of his childhood in a third world country and has only been placed on the political pedestal for a few years. Wouldn’t that make him exponentially more in touch with actual Americans and disqualify him as an elitist?

Furthermore, Clinton takes donations from the lobbyists, while Obama draws all of his donations in from the people.

To call Obama an Elitist is a false label and a sign of Clinton’s desperation as her campaign begins to tear at the seams. So Senator Clinton, if you would like to make up for 30 years of separation, you better start gulping down more shots of alcohol and getting an upgrade on that gun of yours.
