On first take, I can't help but think that his statements were racially based. But when you read the entire statement and consider how the president
delivers his messages, I have to reconsider the racial aspects.
Apparently what he meant was if the U.S. is the kind of mess that these congresswomen keep harping about, then why did they, or their parents or
grandparents, etc. leave their homeland to come to the states? If they think that the U.S. needs fixing, they should go back to the country their
family left and try to fix that mess so they can offer some real solutions here in the states.
That may sound racial, but in all reality he is referring to social, political and cultural aspects of other countries that people leave to come here
for a better life. When my ancestors came here from the Old World, it likely had more to due with opportunities to do better then have a ready made
better life when they got here. I have no doubt that for the first 100 years or so over here it wasn't a picnic for my family, but it wasn't all that
bad where they came from either.
Somalia, Latin America and most of the Islamic countries of today aren't the Europe of a century ago and nothing like U.S. with regards to modern
living standards. So I can understand the president's basic message, that people come to the U.S. for a better life than what they left behind. He
certainly was mean spirited in his statement though, but considering how the left continually twists his words, discredits and misrepresents the
president, I also understand his angry attitude with these congresswomen.
President is rude, crude and crass, but I'll be damned if he isn't actually trying to live up to his promises and has the interests of our country
first. I'm willing to give him a pass on this one, but IMO he really walks a tight rope with statements like this.
