David Brooks on how Obama misread the country

Posted by iusbvision on July 8, 2010

David Brooks gets it right on the money here. When Brooks is calm and has no dog in the hunt, his analysis can be reasonable. It is too bad that he does not have more coherent moments like this as all too often he calls names without substance for support, flames people and mischaracterizes them and he is very eager to do this to his “fellow republicans” as long as he can get his face on the elite media.

I do not respect Brooks (because I find his character to be lacking) and I do not think that he is much of an intellect, but when even he gets it spot on correct I have to give credit where credit is due and in this case he is speaking the truth.

For far left academics like Obama their ideology IS their perceived reality to a large extent. All his PhD pals at university agree with him and he them, so everyone must think as he does. It was like the one academic who said “I can’t believe this, I don’t know one person who voted for Reagan” just after he won a 49 state landslide.
