Michael Gerson thinks the President is an intellectual snob. Here's a key paragraph from his argument:
"What must Democrats trying to compete in Pennsylvania or Ohio think when they hear Obama make arguments such as these? Do they realize the tremendous mistake they have made, tying their political fortunes to a leader who makes Michael Dukakis, Al Gore and John Kerry look like prairie populists in comparison?"
Brother Tom continues to wonder aloud what we should do with all these Democrats who are coming forward and admitting the mistake they made in their Obama-mania. He realizes of course, that the path to electoral victory is to embrace them, to let them know there are no hard feelings. But the urge to say, "Just what the hell did you THINK would happen?" is almost overwhelming.
