Not All Bitters are Anti-Obama


I have another Huffington Post piece up today, talking about how busy Obama volunteers (like me) have pretty much put off everything that’s non-essential in their lives until after the election.

Read it HERE.

In the process of gathering the quotes, I had a couple of interesting email conversations and there was one, in particular, that I found fascinating. It was written by a woman who is a “permanent resident” of the USA but hasn’t yet obtained her citizenship. She wrote this:

My husband is a citizen from Rural PA — who clings to his guns and his religion. He, incidentally, thought Obama got it right. So does his father and siblings. They are from Western PA, and openly admit that they are bitter as hell. They were hoping the news media would consult with their community on “bittergate” so they could set the record straight, but the media was busy condemning Obama for being the only one to get it right.

Imagine that.

I’m just sayin’…
