I have been reading the on line papers again today and yes there is a lot out there on this Sunday morning. Barack Obama is still standing by his words but the press seems to just be covering the "Bitter" part of his comment more than anything. I found this piece from RealClearPolitics a good read. It points out how John Kerry said that he "actually did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it" and that was what lost him the election. We will have to wait and see if Barack Obama's comment.. "You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years. ... And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.".. has the same effect. David Kuhn does call it "Obama's Great Mistake."
There is a small piece of video from San Francisco that has some upset. Will anymore of this video come out for the rest of America to see? Who knows, it is an Obama supporter who released that snippet so I doubt it. I won't rattle on here if you want a list of the Sunday news here it is.
