Out of Touch Arrogance

Once again, a few simple words from Brack Obama reveal the arrogance in the way he views and treats the American people.

In explaining how he lost touch with the people, Obama is quoted in the NY Post today,

“If there is one thing that I regret this year is that we were so busy just getting stuff done and deal with the immediate crises that were in front of us, that I think we lost some of that sense of speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are and why we have to make sure those institutions are matching up with those values.”

Putting aside the very good question of exactly what stuff was he getting done, the highlighted language speaks volumes, “speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are.”

Notice he does not say, “speaking with” or “listening to” the American people about our core values. Instead he is saying he should have been better at telling the American people what their core values should be and have them match up with his socialist agenda.

There is no contrition here nor any attempt to serve the people. Just the same old, “we know better than you” pomposity.

To him the problem is that he was too distracted to tell us what to think. Its this kind of dictatorial arrogance that is dooming this president and his party.
