"But the truth is, is that, our challenge is to get people persuaded that we can make progress when there's not evidence of that in their daily lives. You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 20 months and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Hope and Change of 2009, and the Ram It Down Their Throats Against Their Will of 2010, and each successive effort we've made has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it's not surprising then that we'd make a shameless effort to play off their bitterness, hoping that if they cling to their antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment, our cynical attacks on "foreign money" contributed to the Chamber of Commerce might make them rethink their votes, even if it's complete bull crap. Oh well. At this point, that's all we got. No, seriously. That's it."
