The Mask Slips – New York Times


While a vote for Barack Obama is definitely not on my radar screen because of his extremely liberal voting record (Hillary Clinton’s record is similar), I fear that a few naive Christians may be swayed by Obama’s etherial rhetoric. At this point, you have probably heard about his April 6 speech in San Francisco. The questionable line in this speech is this: “It’s not surprising then that they [small-town, working-class voters] 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.” Does this line from Obama’s speech reflect that he is an elitist? Or even worse, has Marxist tendencies? In today’s New York Times, Bill Kristol give his opinion about Obama’s speech. Check out his insightful analysis The Mask Slips – New York Times.
