He Just Doesn't Get It

Today was not the day we wanted to hear a professorial lecture on religious tolerance. Fine words, even stirring words, well delivered.  Obama is like a fine actor with a good script but with horrible timing. Why is it that he is so out of touch with us folks in Flyover Country? Is it because his inbred elitism impels him to educate us for our own good, even though his manner engenders deep resentment? Nobody likes to be talked down to, and the American person in the street is a lot more savvy that Obama seems to imply. Today was his chance to really connect with the American people. He blew it.  Today was the day to remember those who were lost and the heroic actions of countless American citizens. Save the tolerance speech for another day, because talking about tolerance only reminds us of the intolerance manifest in the 9/11 attack.

Newt Gingrich blasted Obama recently by saying he was "factually insane" for being so far out of touch with the American people.
