This One from WSJ

According to Dorothy Rabinowitz the distance between this president and people is being revealed:

"A great part of America now understands that this president's sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class."

Rest of the the article here.


  1. I'm comfortable with someone who is different. He's not like me and that's okay. The more email attachments I receive from right wingers, Tea Party zealots and righteous republicans, the more I realize I'm not like them either. The Gospel is being construed to fit ideological classes all the way around . . . and THAT just makes me sad.

  2. I've always thought our Commander and Chief should be required to in some capacity have served in our Armed Forces.

  3. And I'm not a birther...or a conspiracy theorist. I don't forward emails about Saul Alinsky, or peddle the drivel concerning Obama's Muslim heritage.

    I think he's a bit sinister, and I don't think he's any sort of Patriot, but we've had Presidents like that before. And that's OK.

    And notice this isn't from some Right Wing, Tea Party publication. It's from the Wall Street Journal. Conservative? Yes. Conspiratorial? No.
