Hillary Clinton suggested at an event in Philadelphia today that Barack Obama looks down at people who live in Pennsylvania.
The Clinton campaign just sent out to reporters Clinton’s remarks, which were made in response to Obama’s much-discussed comments that, given economic hardships facing Pennsylvanians, “it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Speaking at an event in Philadelphia, Hillary said, “I saw in the media it’s being reported that my opponent said that the people of Pennsylvania who faced hard times are bitter. Well, that’s not my experience.”
She added, “Pennsylvanians don’t need a president who looks down on them, they need a president who stands up for them, who fights for them, who works hard for your futures, your jobs, your families.”
