Obama Shows Disconnect From Reality

Poor simpleminded us. We just are nervous because of change and some hard times. We don’t understand what he’s doing really, but we know we can’t pay our bills. Our weak minds are constantly preyed upon by the sinister machinations of the likes of Beck and Limbaugh. We can’t possibly object based on any principled reason because we just don’t understand. And as we all know, there can’t possibly be anything in the Constitution that would not allow such glorious changes – I mean really, the changes are oh, so glorious, right? And the elites know so much better than us or the founders of the country I’m sure. And anyway, the Constitution is a ‘living breathing document’, which means it can say whatever he wants it to say, right?

Oh, and O’? Kiss my a$$.

Smith also asked the president if he is aware of the extreme terms some use to describe him, such as “socialist” or “Nazi.”

“Well, I think that when you listen to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck, it’s pretty apparent, and it’s troublesome, but keep in mind that there have been periods in American history where this kind of vitriol comes out,” Mr. Obama said. “It happens often when you’ve got an economy that is making people more anxious, and people are feeling like there is a lot of change that needs to take place. But that’s not the vast majority of Americans. I think the vast majority of Americans know that we’re trying hard, that I want what’s best for the country.” (video at left)

“I didn’t buy all the hype, right after inauguration, where everybody was only saying nice things about me,” he added. “And I don’t get too worried when things aren’t going as well because I know that over time these things turn.”

The president said both Democrats and Republicans have a responsibility to tone down the rhetoric, but that much of it has to do with the current media environment in which extreme comments are echoed in the blogosphere.
