Cowboy Obama in Montana

The AP did a preview of the Obama Montana trip and included a description of the locals for him. There's a tone here of people-whose -existence-is-to-be-regretted."

"Democrats have made recent election inroads in the (mountain west) by successfully courting independents, Republican crossovers and conservative-to-moderate loyalists in their own party. But it's these very voters — gun owners, civil libertarians, private property advocates — who seem to be turning away from the president across the country because of deep-seated concerns about expanding government and soaring budget deficits."

About 233 years ago a little strip of geography along the eastern coast of North America spawned a population of gun owners, civil libertarians, and private property advocates. They tried a small experiment in limited government which grew and worked out quite well for a long time.

I wonder what sort of experiment lurks in the collectivist heart of those those who would demonize, or at least marginalize, such individualists.

gun owners, civil libertarians, private property advocates — the very people standing in the way of Chairman MaObama's left turn down the road to socialism. It just so happens that the majority of people in flyover country resemble at least one of those descriptions.

The sad part is, the experiment has already been done, several times, and it failed, every time, but they think they can get it right this time.

Now,what was that the definition of again...?

Liars. I seriously don't believe they made inroads by "courting" any group successfully as much as benefiting from transplant surgery, with a huge dose of campaign money thrown at specific area races.
