And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to ... antipathy to people who aren't like them ... as a way to explain their frustrations.Now Obama is one of the bitter clingers, playing on xenophobia because things are not going his way.
Obama, his staff, and the Democratic National Committee, all have launched a campaign program designed to play on fears that foreigners are helping Republicans.
Obama in Philadelphia, October 2010, as reported by The Washington Post:
The White House intensified its attacks Sunday on the powerful U.S. Chamber of Commerce for its alleged ties to foreign donors, part of an escalating Democratic effort to link Republican allies with corporate and overseas interests ahead of the November midterm elections.Michelle Malkin has more on Obama's own foreign money troubles, Newly nativist Democrats and their own foreign funny money.

The chamber adamantly denies that foreign funds are used in its U.S. election efforts, accusing Democrats of orchestrating a speculative smear campaign during a desperate political year.
President Obama, speaking at a rally in Philadelphia, said "the American people deserve to know who is trying to sway their elections" and raised the possibility that foreigners could be funding his opponents.
"You don't know," Obama said at the rally for Senate candidate Joe Sestak and other Democrats. "It could be the oil industry. It could even be foreign-owned corporations. You don't know because they don't have to disclose."
