Just unbelievable...

Watched the “bipartisan” health care meeting yesterday---just long enough to become amazed and appalled at the absolute arrogance of our president. He is not accustomed to not having his own way and it shows. He is quite…put out… about having his plans and desires in any way curtailed… Being a child of privilege, a political pet in a politically correct era, he is understandably outraged at the concept of anyone, including the American People, disagreeing with him. In addition, he honestly doesn’t understand the big deal about “sharing”. Having never been forced to sacrifice himself, he doesn’t understand the anger of people who have worked hard and made difficult choices all their lives in order to achieve a measure of comfort and autonomy in their grandparent years. He assumes that all financially secure people got that way the same way that he did: by being the right color in the right place at the right time, eloquently articulating the right philosophy. And in this, he differs very little from most politicians.

“We’re not campaigning anymore, John. We’ve had the election,” he told Senator McCain. It was a nasty, catty little remark, but it wasn’t really Obama’s fault---it was McCain’s. We wouldn’t be going through any of this if McCain had vetted Obama, as was his duty.

What was clear throughout was the fact that the President intends to get his way whether we like it or not. Because, you see, he is ever-so-much smarter than we are. People have been telling him so for years.

I was going to attack Glen Beck as well, but that will have to wait until tomorrow. I can’t stand to think about these people for too long…
