Obama: You’re Clinging to Guns

A Huffington Post blogger secretly recorded Barack Obama at a San Francisco fundraiser explaining that some voters, facing tough economic conditions, feel so betrayed by government that they “cling” to guns and religion to deal with the frustration of their working-class middle-American lives.

Obama retracted the comment, saying it was poorly phrased, and then won the election largely thanks to tough economic conditions.
