At a fundraiser in Boston President Obama said:
Part of the reason that 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 hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared, and the country’s scared.
In my experience “hardwired” is Evolution-speak for “evolutionary adaptation that influences behavior.” Fascinating. If you don’t like Obama’s policies and plan to vote Republican, it is because you are scared and that fear drives you away from decisions based on facts, science and logic and toward irrational behavior. The sheer arrogance of this statement beggars belief.
