I Suspected This Very Same Thing Prior To The Election…

I suspected this very same thing prior to the election of the President, and my views have hardened, as it appears, have the views of the American people. As Dorothy Rabinowitz of the Wall Street Journal alludes, “the distance between the president and the people is beginning to be revealed.”

This President doesn’t seem to have the deep connection with his country most of us Americans feel he should. It’s manifested in the things he says, i.e., “I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.”

That’s not what we expect from our leader. There is now a suspicion by many of us the President isn’t really rooting for the home team.

“…The beliefs and attitudes that this president has internalized are to be found everywhere—in the salons of the left the world over—and, above all, in the academic establishment, stuffed with tenured radicals and their political progeny. The places where it is held as revealed truth that the United States is now, and has been throughout its history, the chief engine of injustice and oppression in the world.

They are attitudes to be found everywhere, but never before in a president of the United States. Mr. Obama may not hold all, or the more extreme, of these views. But there can be no doubt by now of the influences that have shaped him.”
