Dems think regular people can't understand Obama:


#1

President Obama’s campaign spokeswoman said she’s concerned Obama will sound too “professorial” to resonate with the low-information voters tuning into the presidential campaign for the first time during this week’s debate.

“[W]hat the American [people] are looking for is not just a professorial list of facts or accomplishments or even goals,” Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said yesterday as part of her ongoing, almost-comical attempt to lower expectations going into the debates. She then lamented that Obama “has a tendency to give longer, substantive answers.”

They really know they are going to lose this debate huh?

From the linked article:

She’d better hope that they’re not looking for those things at all…

Enough people are too dumb to understand him to get him elected President!

Stupid people elected him in the first place. If they read his autobiography, I doubt many intelligent non-racist blacks would actually have voted for him. Most blacks are above the whole racist blame the white folks game.

But now that we have a different Obama who has long winded fluff answers instead of saying yes we can all the time, the momentum is gone!

It ceased to amaze me years ago how stupid some people can be when it comes to politics. There are those who do not care one way or the other. There are those who attribe the doings of their party to the other party. There are those who are months behind of what is going on.

If there is one thing more than anything else that political elites in both parties agree upon, it’s that Americans are ignorant, irrational, and stupid. On the left, this manifests itself in outbursts such as this one from Bill Maher: Bill Maher: Americans , and in their attitude toward the religious right.

On the right, this manifests itself in more obvious political ways, such as in calls for rolling back universal suffrage with “competence tests” and other such nonsense (yeah, letting the political elites draw up “competence tests” is a great idea). Fortunately, Americans are more sensible than they suppose, sensible enough to reject most of the destructive ideas floated out by the political class.

Do you have a link to this???

Check out Bryan Caplan’s The Myth of the Rational Voter.

If you would like an example from the pundit class, try this one from Ann Coulter: Norm Macdonald interviews Ann Coulter 01/03/08 - YouTube (starting at 1:08), Coulter explicitly rejects the traditional American value for voting as a civic duty and argues that it should be “much, much, much more difficult to vote,” complaining that “way too many people vote.” According to Coulter, there should be a “poll tax and a literacy test” for voting.

Thanks.

I too think letting anyone with a SAM’S Club card and who can fog a mirror vote is WRONG. We do need to raise the bar. Right now, 12 million illegals can vote as easy as you and I. We can vote in multiple states with ease.
