Snap! Obama Basically Calls American Voters Idiots

Professor Obama, with his degree in psychology in hand, decided he would diagnose the American public, once again showing his disdain for any who oppose his hard left agenda

Barack Obama Freddy KruegerPresident Barack Obama said Americans’ “fear and frustration” is to blame for an intense midterm election cycle that threatens to derail the Democratic agenda.

“Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,” Obama said Saturday evening in remarks at a small Democratic fundraiser Saturday evening. “And the country’s scared.”

Obama told the several dozen donors that he was offering them his “view from the Oval Office.” He faulted the economic downturn for Americans’ inability to “think clearly” and said the burden is on Democrats “to break through the fear and the frustration people are feeling.”

Well, on one hand, he’s correct: many people were scared and clearly were not thinking clearly when they decided to vote for a man with no experience as an executive, who peddled unicorns and lollipops, and who they knew almost nothing about. Of course, being a community organizer is all about playing on people’s fears. Witness the constant drumbeat about the evil Chamber of Commerce, verbal attacks against private individuals and entities that question his agenda, and his car analogy (D is for drive, R is for reverse), not too mention the blamestorming Obama has engaged in since day 1. As Tom Maguire writes

Still, I wonder whether telling us we are a nation of cowards for worrying about our jobs will be a winning message.

No, no, that’s the fear talking, Tom. You need not be afraid. Everything is going to be OK. Some years down the road. Until then, we have unicorns! Can’t you just smell the fragrant emanations?

“You can respond in a couple of ways to a trauma like this,” Obama said, referring to the economy. “One is to pull back, retrench and respond to your fears by pushing away challenges, looking backwards. Another is to say we can meet these challenges and we are going to move forward. And that’s what this election is about.”

Yes, that is what this election is about, Professor. It’s about the American people realizing that they want things to get better, so they are willing to give the GOP the chance to fix the problems that your administration, along with Congressional Democrats, have made worse/created. Obviously, all you folks who are scared for your jobs, scared about the possibility of inflation or deflation, scared about what ObamaCare will do to your health insurance, scared what will happen with your taxes, scared about unemployment, scared about runaway government spending, scared for your children’s futures, well, you’re apparently idiots for being feart.
