Obama, turning again to his attacks on millions of dollars in campaign ads run by independent groups that do not under law have to disclose their donors, referred to special interests as an “empire” during a campaign speech at Ohio State University this week-end.
“The empire is striking back,” he said.
I assume, then, that the Massachusetts hospital, whose CEO used his house for Obama to raise $900,000 on Saturday, is not a special interest.
These gangsters are either too stupid themselves, or think that we are stupid.
On second thought, it is us that they think are the stupid ones. At that same fund raiser on Saturday, President Obama suggested Democrats are having difficulties in midterm campaigning because Americans simply aren't thinking clearly. Seeking to explain his party's troubles, the president focused not on controversial legislation like national health care and the stimulus but on evolutionary psychology. "Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now, and facts and science and argument do not seem to be winning the day all the time, is because we're hard-wired not to always think clearly when we're scared," Obama told the assembled Democrats, who paid $15,200 a person to attend. "And the country is scared."
To "break through the fear and the frustration that people are feeling right now," Obama told the crowd, will require high-end donors not just to "write checks" but also to "lift up people's spirits and make sure that they're not reacting just to fear."
Got it? Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, and numerous other Democrats are right: we are too stupid to understand the benevolence of this government.
What condescending, elitist behavior! Remember this on November 2nd and get out the vote.
