How many accusations of racism or insults are voters willing to put up with from the Left?
So why is it that those in Pennsylvania are voting for PA (Dem) US Rep. John Murtha and Barack Obama? Pennsylvania is a battleground state in this upcoming election, one wonders why anyone in the Keystone state would vote for people who insult and belittle them?
First John Murtha called his constituents racists as he stated on camera that Obama may not do well in Western Pennsylvania because his constituents are racists. Obviously realizing that Murtha made a mistake, he corrected and clarified his comments to say, that the people of Western Pennsylvania are not really racists, “they are really rednecks.” Nice. Does Martha care to try for another apology and further insult the very people who voted him in office?
Let us not also forget the insulting comments of Barack Obama to the people of small town PA while he was at a fund raiser in San Francisco where Obama states,
“they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them …”
The news comes one week after Murtha claimed the area is racist, then apologized for that comment.
In explaining his comments about racism, Murtha told WTAE it’s difficult for many in the area to change. Murtha said that just five to 10 years ago the entire area was “redneck.”
Now Murtha said only certain segments of the population are holding on to those racist feelings.
Just days after classifying western Pennsylvania as racist, Murtha took a step back from those comments, albeit a small one.
Interestingly enough recent polls show challenger Bill Russell (R) in the 12th Congressional District of PA with a slight advantage, at 47.4% to Murtha’s 44.3%. Could Murtha’s comments have a coattail effect in PA?
Watch the political ad that include Murtha’s outrageous “racist” and “redneck” comments.
