These remarks by Senator Obama made on September 17 rank as stupid and divisive.
In Elko, Obama tried to anticipate his critics and called on the crowd of about 1,500 to sharpen their elbows, too.
“I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face,” he said.
Where can things be headed if the man who wants to be leader of the free world advocates intimidation rather than persuasion to convert new followers? Does this mean undecideds, independents and Republicans need to keep a low profile? Will bumper stickers and lawn signs become red flags to Obamaniacs?
With certainty post-partisan politics is dead for this election cycle and Obama needs to be held accountable for its demise.
