Clinton Becomes a Gun Lover

First off: this post doesn't signify acceptance of Obama or any rejecting of Clinton in case a few think to be offended. I am still undecided and looking for answers.

A couple of things that need clarified. Nothing prejudicial or partisan. Just some curious statements and maybe interpretations.

Clinton Becomes a Gun Lover

"You know, some people now continue to teach their children and their grandchildren. It's part of culture. It's part of a way of life. People enjoy hunting and shooting because it's an important part of who they are. Not because they are bitter."

[Does she mean the problems we have with gang related shooting or drive-bys were taught to their kids because it’s a way of life? Is it just because shooting is an important part of who they are? I guess those who have little else and are involved in (especially) inner city shootings aren’t bitter because they have everything they could possibly want thanks to politicians. (/Sarcasm, in case)]

Clinton stood by the bar and took a shot of Crown Royal whiskey. She took one sip of the shot, then another small sip, then a few seconds later threw her head back and finished off the whole thing.

Clinton later sat down at a table and enjoyed some pizza and beer, and called over Mayor Tom McDermott of Hammond, Ind., to come join the table.

"Every time I get around you we start drinking, senator," the mayor exclaimed.

Clinton nodded and raised her glass.

"It's Saturday night, though, Tom," she said…

[Not much impresses me more than a sophisticated lady who “throws one down”, Nostrovia!

And here we are making fun of an ex(?) alcoholic currently running the country and a candidate who went bowling! But machismo with liquor and guns is okey dokey?]

This one is a little curious, though:

"I (Hillary) disagree with Sen. Obama's assertion that people in our country cling to guns and have certain attitudes about trade and immigration simply out of frustration," she began, referring to the Obama comments on small-town Americans that set off a political tumult on Friday.

[Isn’t she frustrated over the loss of American jobs, lack of exports and illegal immigrants? Does that constitute a certain attitude?]
