Will Hodes Stand Up to Obama's Insults?

Bosse calls on Hodes to denounce Obama’s condescending comments

(Hillsboro) Republican Grant Bosse today called on Congressman Paul Hodes to denounce Senator Barack Obama's insults of rural America. Hodes is Obama’s national campaign co-chairman.

“Barack Obama doesn’t understand rural America; Barack Obama doesn’t respect rural America, and he's Paul Hodes’ pick for President,” said Bosse. “We deserve to know if Paul Hodes shares his candidate's contempt for small town families, or if he's willing to finally stand up against these elitist and condescending remarks.”

Trying to explain his falling popularity in rural Pennsylvania, Obama told the crowd at a San Francisco fundraiser “And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy towards people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

“Does Paul Hodes agree that gun owners and church-goers are bitter, frustrated and anti-immigrant, or will he tell Barack Obama that he's wrong?” Bosse continued. “Paul Hodes has a choice between rural America and liberal cronyism.”

Bosse’s campaign is centered on freeing the economy from earmarks and over-regulation, winning the war against Islamic Fascism, and securing our borders. For more information on Bosse’s campaign, go to
