Dennis the Menace

Arkansas GOP Chair Dennis "What we need is another 9/11" Milligan clips and pastes the national Republican talking points on Obama's bitter words.

NEWS RELEASE

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR – Republican Party of Arkansas Chairman Dennis Milligan released the following statement today:
 
“Senator Obama’s condescending comments to a group of wealthy, elitist Democrat donors last week directly reveal the Senator’s opinion about millions of Americans. Arkansas is a state whose backbone is comprised of small towns and rural voters and these comments demonstrate just how out of touch he is with the lives of Arkansans. Even this morning, Senator Obama apologized for his wording, yet stood by his remarks, fortifying the fact that he believes that people vote their values only out of bitterness, anger, and frustration.  It is incomprehensible that Senator Obama would make the elitist comment that people value their Second Amendment rights only out of bitterness, anger and frustration. The remarks that people can only be of deep faith because they are bitter, angry and frustrated is a direct slap in the face to the citizens of Arkansas who are the heart and soul of this state due to their deep faith and beliefs. Having met Arkansans from various locations and backgrounds, I know that the values and faith of the residents of this state have a meaning far beyond the result of bitterness or frustration.”
 
 
Background:
 
On April 6th In San Francisco, Senator Obama Said:  "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 nothing's replaced them. … And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. 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."
