Joe Biden, in a recent interview, spoke of trying to figure out what was "eating" at Trump supporters.
Of course, you understand his implication: Ohhhh, of course they're wrong to support Trump, but if only we knew WHY, then by golly, we can somehow win elections. Talk about an IDIOT! Gee, if we could only get into the minds of the Trumpers, wouldn't that be great? Hellooooo, McFly!, it's not hard to figure out The Donald's support, and it's not just about those who like Trump, either. People on the center-right, are pretty much the same. They don't like Obamacare, the increasing deficit, bowing to foreign leaders, growing poverty, unchecked illegals coming in, Islamists who hate our guts infiltrating our great country... Hmmmm, what else? How about trading terrorists for a deserter? Or a president that lectures America about the beheading of American journalist, James Foley, and then heading straight to the golf course? Letting four men die in Benghazi, and not sending help? Screwing Israel at every opportunity! The VA scandal, and Planned Parenthood selling baby parts! Messing with the Second Amendment. Putting the environment ahead of jobs! Hey, Joe, what's "eating" at Trump supporters, is the inability, or refusal, of this administration to give a DAMN about what the people of America want! Hillary Clinton hitched her wagon to Obama, and guess what? People don't LIKE his policies! Some like his personality, but what he does? Hardly.
The arrogance of Biden is typical of so many leftists. They just ASSUME that they're right, and everyone else needs to be "educated" or indoctrinated. I get a kick out of these morons. They look down their noses at the great unwashed, and then wonder why folks are so mad at them. When blacks on the left rant about evil whites, slavery, demanding reparations, and how AWFUL the pale faces are, that's fine with the Democrats. But Trump supporters are somehow "Angry white males." Blacks are never described as angry. Instead, they're venting legitimate grievances, which, I guess, white guys NEVER have! A lot of people have just had it with the left. Their strategy of cobbling votes from minorities and guilt-ridden white people, just isn't working, and it's driving these power freaks up a wall -- and I don't mean the one that Trump plans to make Mexico pay for.
The leftist strategy (if you can call it that), to just slime the opposition, just isn't working, anymore. They've called "wolf" once too often. The media is not being listened to, and who gives a friggity-frack what Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyonce, George Clooney, Cher, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, George Lopez, Miley Cyrus, Elton John, Robert de niro, and the cast of Hamilton have to say about anything? Most Americans are so TIRED of snooty celebrities who want to take away our guns, while hiring armed body guards, and living in super safe homes. We resent those that live the millionaire lifestyle, taking private jets everywhere, while lecturing us about how we're destroying the planet. We don't LIKE being called bigots just because we want our borders secured, and potential terrorists kept OUT of our great country. We're wayyyyy weary of being sneered at by the media -- news or entertainment. We think for ourselves, and guess what? We have rejected you! You can't indoctrinate us anymore from colleges and universities. We see through the evening news. We no longer feel guilty for any success we've had in life, and are not going to apoligize for it, or our skin tone.
Eight years ago, we were told that the country had turned blue, and it would be that way for generations. Didn't happen. So much for expert predictions. America turned right, and didn't even realize it. Now, if Joe Biden wants to stay up all night, trying to figure out what is "eating" at his opponents, well, Joe, all I can say is that it's good to have a hobby. Guys like Biden have two things in common: they complicate the simple, and simplify the complicated. In this case, Uncle Joe can't see the obvious -- People don't LIKE liberalism! It's so obvious, but jerks like Biden will refuse to see it. I saw Jack Benny, many years ago, on the Tonight Show, and he told a story about how a woman came up to him once and said "I know you, you're, ummm, you're uhhh" and finally he said "I'm Jack Benny." She replied, "Noooo, that's not it!" And that's the way it is with the left. The obvious answer to their lack of success being that most people don't like their policies is met with Noooo, that's not it!
But it IS!
