Who are the bitter clingers now?

It seems like only yesterday that (now) President Obama was telling a fund raising audience in San Francisco

So 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.

Which leads me to wonder, if the repudiation Tuesday is as severe as it appears, whether it won’t be surprising if they get bitter, clinging to their Whole Foods arugula,  Lake Woebegon homes where all the women are strong, men are metrosexual and children above average,  and wondering  whether the party in power will be taking care of its friends and punishing its enemies.
