Obama recently said: “People are still hurting very badly, and they are still scared. And so part of the reason our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we’re hard-wired not to always think clearly when we’re scared.”
As the article below rightly points out, we are not scared, we are ANGRY!

“Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.

The rightful and appropriate response to the destructive actions and decisions of the Obama administration the last 2 years is anger. Americans understand that anger is a natural and healthy response to perceived injustice or wrongdoing. My anger shows my clarity of thought, my integrity and my commitment to honesty and fairness, not irrationality as he suggests by his insulting comment. But, we should be accustomed to being insulted by him, it seems to happen with great regularity.
