Obama should ride in a pick-up truck with horns and a shotgun in the back windshield, with those that "cling to guns and Religion" as he once famously said.
OK, Mr Obama does not like beer, beer bars and bowling alleys ( I understand him perfectly and identify with him 100% in those dislikes ) but as long as Obama receives only rotten eggs and tomatoes and not bullets or bombs that would be good for the Electoral Prospects of the Democratic Party.
Obama is not connecting to the Poor Whites, Working Whites, Evangelical Whites ( and other non-White Evangelicals ).
Many people probably do not know who is John Maynard Keynes and do not understand the importance of Deficit Spending, they are ignorant of Economic History, and know nothing about the "Decade of Stagnation" in Japan but they understand a visit of Mr Obama and the drinking of a beer with some "rednecks" while listening to blue-grass music.
It is useless to talk to people about Franklin Roosevelt, the "New Deal" and Economic Recovery, if they have never read a single book, article or page about that mysteryous guy FDR.
You won't find those precious rednecks in the best Universities and the most culturally advanced cities.
Politics is more superficial and emotional than rational and profound. Perhaps Obama is rejected more for his "elitism" than for the color of his skin.
Put on your baseball cap and roll up your sleeves Mr Obama !
