The Democrats have such contempt for American people. When you are an elitist, you unquestioningly believe in your supposed intellectual superiority. And when this psychosis reaches advanced levels, one is blinded to even the obvious that a political novice can see.
Take Obama. The rigid ideologue that he is, despite disastrous couple of weeks he's had culminating in his ridiculous assertion that the private sector is doing just fine (and inevitably back pedalling), he's been out parroting the same old rhetoric about financing bigger and bigger government to cure what ails us. Apparently, none of his Democrat advisers are free from the same psychosis in that Obama continues pursuing his ill-advised divide and conquer strategy - a sure loser come November.
No, American people are not that stupid. They may not always pay attention to politics but they certainly have a sense of what is right and what is wrong despite the condescending attitudes of progressive collectivists.
Doubling down on stupidity? Not only that, they are going all-in!
