Much Ado About Nothing

Obama's "bitter" comment:
It’s not surprising then that 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.
Trying to come up with any reason Obama should apologize for this statement. Coming up empty. A moment of transparency? Perhaps. A moment of truth? Sure. Elitist? Maybe if you try to skew it that way. But a literal reading to me sounds more like his intention was sympathy for the disenfranchised, even when disagreeing with their choices. But spin doctors will latch on to anything.
