For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Obama Plunges 20% In Pennsylvania

A new poll was released this morning by The American Research Group showing significant damage done to Barack Obama in Pennsylvania over offensive comments made Friday about small town residents in that state. The neck-and-neck standings have changed to a 20 percentage point lead by Hillary Clinton, 57% to 37% with 4% undecided, and a surprisingly small 2% wanting someone else.

The comments by Obama were made at a San Francisco fundraiser, in an enclosed area where Obama, no doubt, felt comfortable. Here is a quote:

And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Speaking as a recently transplanted small town Pennsylvanian, I can honestly say that I believe, based upon the facts of the story, that Obama must have been speaking from his heart, being that he was among friends. His elitism seems typical of the Democrat party who these days seem only to appeal to some self-proclaimed intellectuals along with most minorities in large cities, with whom they avoid direct contact. What strange bedfellows these are. And how awkward it must seem for Barack Hussein Obama to be both a member of an avoided minority AND someone with a pampered upbringing. It still looks like he will win the nomination (but much too early to count out the Clinton machine!), and this could be a good thing for Republicans, at least in PA. The rest of the country still shows Obama leading Clinton in the polls at 50% to 41% as of yesterday.

Obama is, and always has been, a doctrinaire, condescending liberal. (The most liberal voting record in last year's Senate.) He's grown up in privilege (and probably corruption), and is totally phony-baloney! More of this will come out as the campaign progresses.

Meanwhile, Hillary meets her own meretricious lies coming and going (Kosovo, gun control, etc.)

What a tragedy if either of these clowns win!
