A classic confrontation, a classic duo:) It's American Gothic in the best sense, honest and grounded.
They're reacting to Obama with the farmer in the dell backdrop, Mr. Green Jeans or something, complaining about people putting party above country. Huh? This from a guy who was partisan from the get-go--the Tea Party jelled soon after that--and clobbered Paul Ryan to his face when he tried to put the country first.
Then there's his self-pitying, self-absorbed shtick--he thinks he has it almost as bad as President Lincoln? I swear he's veering into narcissist-delusional Blago territory.

Barack Obama is the most leftist president America has ever had, with a deep conviction that we need to be brought down to the lowest common spread/kill the wealth denominator, ruled by an elite that knows what's best for us even as they take the spoils of our labor, what's left of it, for themselves.
