With the controversy surrounding Barack Obama’s comments about “bitter” Pennsylvanians he made to a m/billionaire shindig a couple of Sundays ago still getting major play in both the blogosphere and media, the LA Times Top of the Ticket blog is conducting a poll to determine how many people out there are bitter versus those who aren’t. Here are the options:
Yes. I’ll show you bitter when I vote.
Yes, but it isn’t any politician’s fault.
No. Actually, I feel pretty good.
Make sure to pass the link along to family and friends who may want to vote, also.
The O-man continues to feel the heat today on the issue, from conservative writers like George Will and John Fund. Even the liberal Huffington Post is getting in on the act of criticizing The Chosen One as it relates to another issue, and that is BO’s accusations against Hillary Clinton of supposedly using the “GOP playbook” against him. HuffPo believes Obama himself is using the “playbook” thanks to none other than …. Karl Rove. The HP makes up for their Obama criticism with this defense of his “bitter” remarks, missing the point behind the backlash – as usual.
I have to wonder, what with the uproar over this, his “former pastor” Jeremiah Wright, and NAFTAGate – all three issues of which are problems for Obama that have not gone away, that the mediots and pundits continue to write about – are we finally starting to see a chink in Obama’s armor?
Hey, buddy, save some of that popcorn for me
