Highlights from the above link…
Viessman is more succinct in analyzing why fellow rednecks may not be flocking to Obama’s campaign.
“Guns,” he said. “And that he’s black.”
“We are just trying to tell people that you don’t have to be afraid of Obama,” said Spencer, who has done everything from working as a laborer to selling real estate. “He’s not going to try to take away your guns, no matter what the NRA says.”
“Sometimes change is hard for people,” said Viessman, a retired highway patrol officer. “But I don’t care if you’re black or Oriental or green, if you can do the job. And he can do the job. He’s pretty near the smartest guy who’s ever run for president.”
Viessman’s neo-redneck take on that: “My dad used to say, ‘A poor man who votes for a Republican is a fool.'”
