Is Obama An Elitist?

I have heard this question posed many times and the answer is: "Of course, he is!" When was the last time that a presidential nominee was not an elitist? From the very beginning of this country elitist have ruled.

But the humorous part is it is the Clinton group that is calling him an elitist. The same arrogant bunch that have this air of inevitability around them. The same group that feels it is their birth right to be the next president. By any stretch of the imagination, that is an ELITIST.

Clinton said on the stump in Pennsylvania, "As I travel around Pennsylvania, I meet people who are resilient, who are optimistic, who are positive. . . . They're working hard every day for a better future for themselves and their children. Pennsylvanians don't need a president who looks down on them. They need a president who stands up for them, who fights for them."

This coming from a member of the DLC, the poster child for elitism.

So yes, Obama is an elitist, but so is every other person running for President. Americans have a long history of letting the rich and the elite push them around and I do not see any change in the near future.
