And on a similar note

Toby Harnden writes in the British Telegraph that Obama “echoes anti-Americanism of Europe in calling voters stupid”:

In the 1990s, Democrats managed to get away from their image as “eggheads” in the 1950s or “pointy-headed liberals” in the 1970s. Bill Clinton spoke like a Good Ol’ Boy from the Deep South, ate junk food and enjoyed trashy women. He was clever, but he did not look down on people.

Obama, by contrast, has become a parody of the Ivy League liberal smugly content with his own intellectual superiority and pitying the poor idiots who disagree with him. It is an approach that shares much with the default anti-Americanism of British and European elites, who love to mock the United States as a country full of gun-toting, bible-clutching morons.

I dunno about that assessment of Clinton. BC acted as though the law applied to everyone except him in trying to get out of the Paula Jones litigation, saying in effect, “l’Etat, c’est moi!” And his functionaries sneered about what happens when you drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park.

Not exactly a man of the people.
