Michael Gerson on Obama the snob

Before you dismiss what he’s saying too quickly, be aware this is precisely what leftie journalist Joe Bageant says too. Democrats too often tend to be elitist and contemptuous of those living in the country or who disagree with them.

In April 2008, Obama described small-town voters to wealthy donors in San Francisco: “It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them.”

This is not the way to build coalitions or attract voters.
