Andy Martin calls Barack Obama the first anti-American candidate for president of the United States
Contrarian Commentary ^ | 4/12/2008 | Andy Martin

Posted on 04/12/2008 7:01:29 AM PDT by igoramus08

(CHICAGO)(April 12, 2008) Chicago-based Obama expert and Internet columnist Andy Martin will hold a 1:00 P.M. Chicago news conference Saturday, April 12th, to condemn Senator Barack Obama for suggesting that small-town America is “bitter” about America and that Americans “cling” to “guns” and “religion” as an outlet for their bitterness.

Martin will also demand that Obama end his “secret” campaign in which the presidential candidate uses meetings that are closed to the media to raise money from wealthy liberals by privately disparaging ordinary Americans.

“In listening to Obama depreciate and disparage small town America,” Martin will say, “I am reminded of the New York tabloid headline about ‘Hicks in the Stix.’ Obama has denigrated small town America. In Obama’s eyes, Main Street in Middle America is ‘Macaccaburg.’ Obama believes ordinary Americans are the real Macacaas.

“Obama seems to think that people turn to religion out of ‘bitterness.’ That has not been my experience. Christians are optimistic people, not bitter. Maybe Obama and his soul brother Jeremiad Wright are bitter, but America is an optimistic nation.

Urkel Obama is the Manchurian candidate with ears.

::::::
Well stated. He is an empty suit that must find a way to power, and keeping power, by means other than the job of the Presidency and C-in-C. The danger to this country this charlatan represents, is beyond comprehension by most. Otherwise he would not be on the slate....niether would Hillary for that matter.

God help America.

he just whiffed on some kind of explanation for remarks about bitterness at a speech in Muncie , IN. “There’s a typical political” puff (not sure what word he used) “about remarks I made.” “Fall back on their traditions because that’s what sustains us” but they’re “bitter because they feel noone in Washington is listening to them”

I'm in complete agreement with you. I totally believe that obama hates America....so does his wife (even more so, if that's possible).

God Bless America

The only bitter people I know are “progressives” who are pissed off that they haven’t had a toady in the WH for eight years...They’re bitter because when Nancy and Harry lied (about ending the war) their dreams (of an American defeat) died.

Hussein Obama is the most unqualified, dangerous person to ever run for President. And the Hildebeast is not far behind. Pray for our country.

Barry is so much smarter than your typical hate mongering Anti-American race pimp like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. All these years, they been using cameras to do their pimping, Barry be privately cultivating money behind the scenes, while publicly cultivating and sending tingles down the legs of MSM whores.

Perhaps Obummer has confused the reasons people turn to Christianity with the reasons people turn to Islam, given that one of Islam's most fertile recruiting grounds for black Americans is prison.

Is there a more bitter group than people serving 15 to life???

Americans “cling” to ... “religion” as an outlet for their bitterness.

Another way of saying, "opiate of the masses". Obama just revealed himself as a communist.

You hear Gingrich on Hannity’s show yesterday? He put it very well, saying it is obvious Obama is “tolerant” of terrorists, of enemies of Israel, and of anti American losers. McCain should take advantage of this, but I doubt he will. Actually Hillary ought to be using this as a weapon against Obama. In any case, if the American people elect this dangerous man then we are in deep trouble.

The 'eloquence' with which Obama speaks,,,,canNOT hide the fact that he is an arrogant, bitter, anti-American, Marxist and black racist. That fact becomes more and more obvious by the day.

If you want to split and divide this country even further along racial lines,,,

an eloquent-speaking racist like Obama,,,

with his blatantly black racist 'close friend', mentor, spiritual advisor and pastor,,,,

and his bitter, angry, anti-American wife,,,

ARE THE RIGHT PEOPLE AT THE RIGHT TIME!!!

It is too late for Hillary to win this thing the right way. However by the time the convention rolls around, Obummer will be polling under 40% and pulling Congressional Dems down with him. The real fun will start when the Dems at that point try and toss him off the “back of the bus”.

Everybody should read Tom Wolf’s Radical Chic & Mau-Mauing the Flak Catchers and see some reasons why the Left is kissing this fakers butt and why he holds secret fundraisers.

Obama was right about one thing.

Which he will discover, if he tries to un-cling our guns.

You are correct! That is why Dean and head RATS are desperate for this to end before the convention. They want no part of the SD’s having to make an informed choice that will anger their moonbats.

I think now they would rather lose than cause the riots in Denver.

“Senator Barack Obama for suggesting that small-town America is “bitter” about America and that Americans “cling” to “guns” and “religion” as an outlet for their bitterness.”

His disdain for America is even more focused on ‘fly-over’ country. Obama’s malignant contempt for traditional America is seeping to the the surface. Hopefully, by November most Americans will realize what a destructive force he represents.

Obama has turned the corner of radical socialism and has become a certified fascist. This silver tongued demagogue is more dangerous than I ever imagined.

That's really very profound. I'm afraid not too many will even look that far into at what this modern-day lenin has shown. We either learn from history or repeat it.

Re: Martin will say, “I am reminded of the New York tabloid headline about ‘Hicks in the Stix.’

While I am in agreement with Martin's comments regarding Obama, the above beings to mind "Hixs Nixs Stix Pixs" from James Cagney's 1942 Yankee Doodle Dandy where his George M. Cohan character is translating that headline from the Hollywood trade paper Variety to some passing by teenagers that either think it is jive talk or Greek.

Gadzooks! Today's teenagers... are about just as bad. They think Vietnam is a province of Mexico, France was our opponent in the Civil War and that Glenn Miller must have played in the Steve Miller Band!

I did love when Glenn did "Fly Like an Eagle". Very cool.

I head it the last time I was riding the Chattanooga Choo Choo.
