Whiny Obama to Kentucky Voters: You Morons Get Your News From Fox, So I Won't Be Campaigning There

He's sending his wife instead. I just hope people aren't too mean to her.

I surmise this strategy of running against Fox News is coming from the higher-ups at the DNC. It always works well to alienate the largest possible audience, I guess.

Really though, this puerile, juvenile whining is so unbecoming of someone who pretends to want to be president.

Thankfully behavior like this will prevent that.

Oh, but he plans to come back and campaign for the general election. Not that he has a chance in hell of winning there.
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, facing a likely defeat in next Tuesday's primary election, won't travel to Kentucky before the voting, but said he hopes to have much more time to win over Kentucky voters before the November general election.

He also blamed Fox News for disseminating "rumors" about him and said that that and e-mails filled with misinformation that have been "systematically" dispersed have hurt him in Kentucky.
Rumors? Uh, what rumors?
"When we're able to campaign in a place like Iowa for several months and I can visit and talk to people individually, I do very well. That's harder to do at this stage in the campaign," Obama said in a brief telephone interview Friday. "And once we get past the primary, we'll ble to focus more on those states where we need to make sure people know my track record."

In contrast, Obama's rival, Sen. Hillary Clinton, will make five stops in Kentucky over the weekend, including appearances at two university campuses.

Obama spoke to more than 8,000 supporters in Louisville Monday night — his first time in the state since August. He said he had hoped to spend more time in Kentucky earlier this week but was called back to Washington, D.C. for votes on Tuesday.

Since then, he’s stumped in Oregon, which will hold its primary by mail on Tuesday, and South Dakota, where Democrats vote June 3, as well as in states that have already held their primary elections, such as Michigan and Missouri.

“We’re having to campaign in a lot of different places,” Obama said. “Obviously we think Kentucky is important. People in Kentucky are concerned about the same things people are concerned about all across the country — declining wages and incomes combined with the rising costs of everything from gas to health care.”

Obama’s wife, Michelle, is slated to campaign in Kentucky on Monday.

Obama conceded that he has a steep challenge to get his message and background to voters in states such as Kentucky — where he trails Sen. Hillary Clinton by 27 points, according to a poll published earlier this week — and West Virginia, where voters chose Clinton over Obama by 40 points on Tuesday.

"What it says is that I'm not very well known in that part of the country," Obama said. "Sen. Clinton, I think, is much better known, coming from a nearby state of Arkansas. So it's not surprising that she would have an advantage in some of those states in the middle."
Someone ought to show Barry O a map of the United States. He might notice the southeast portion of his state of Illinois borders Kentucky.
Obama has been trying to introduce himself to Kentuckians using a series of biographical TV ads, as well as fliers, including one that shows him at a pulpit in front of a church’s cross and pipe organ.
Presumably, Jeremiah Wright is nowhere to be found in the ad.

Obviously nobody knows him since they're one of those middle states, only have Fox News on their televisions, apparently, and have missed out on the relentlessly glowing news coverage he's received nonstop the past 18 months.

Good grief.
