Obama Is No Social Scientist
Obama jumped to an unwarranted conclusion and he and his followers treat his boneheaded remark as an awkward truth.
Obama may well have observed that small-town Americans are religious, prize their guns and are suspicious of people who are not like them but where is the evidence that these traits are caused by loss of jobs?
In fact, small-town Americans were religious, prized their guns and were suspicious of people who are not like them even when they had the good jobs.
Obama is no social scientist. He is just a tin-horn politician. The only reason that he is leading the Democratic primary contest is that Hillary has grossly mismanaged her campaign.
