Obama-Clinton-McCain: War of words over guns and liquor

Obama started with this comment at a San Fransisco fundraiser:“You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years. “¦ And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations”

Clinton replied:
“Someone goes to a closed-door fundraiser in San Francisco and makes comments that do seem elitist, out of touch and, frankly, patronizing,” and then re-affrimed her gun credentials by mentioning that she shot ducks with her dad as a child.

Obama replied on the photo of Hillary drinking Crown Royal:
“Around election time, the candidates can’t do enough — they’ll promise you anything, they’ll give you a long list of proposals and even come around, with TV crews in tow, to throw back a shot and a beer,”
…and then sniped on her hunting comment…
“She is running around talking about how this is an insult to sportsmen, how she values the Second Amendment. She’s talking like she’s Annie Oakley,”

John McCain’s senior advisor jumped in.
“It’s hard to keep a straight face when you’re accused of being out of touch by a guy who thinks the whole country is worried about the high price of arugula or that you hunt ducks with a six shooter,”
