If They Have Such a Low Opinion of Us, Why Do They Care What We Think?

Remember when bankers got all bent out of shape because Obama called them “fat cats”? Three years ago? Well, they’re still not over it:

The Zambrellis scoffed at attempts by the Democrats — who mocked Romney in an ad Sunday as “great for oil billionaires, bad for the middle class” — to wage class warfare. “Would you like to hear about the fundraisers I went to for him?” Sharon Zambrelli said of Obama. “Do you have an hour? … All the ones in the city — it was all of Wall Street.”

“It’s not helping the economy to pit the people who are the engine of the economy against the people who rely on that engine,” Michael Zambrelli said as the couple waited in their SUV for clearance into the Creeks shortly after the candidate’s motorcade flew by and entered the pine-tree lined estate. “He’s basically been biting the hand that fed him in ’08. … I would bet 25% of the people here were supporters of Obama in ’08. And they’re here now.”

Meanwhile, this is what they really think of us:

A New York City donor a few cars back, who also would not give her name, said Romney needed to do a better job connecting. “I don’t think the common person is getting it,” she said from the passenger seat of a Range Rover stamped with East Hampton beach permits. “Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.”

“We’ve got the message,” she added. “But my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies — everybody who’s got the right to vote — they don’t understand what’s going on. I just think if you’re lower income — one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how the systems work, they don’t understand the impact.”

So, if we’re stupid, why do you care what we think of you?

    I would say to these donors, “If you think you are the engine for their economy—the economy of the nail ladies, etc.—you are quite mistaken. You are supporting policies that improve your own economy and damage theirs. The policies you support increase the social and economic distance between yourselves and the lower income people.”

    “I just think if you’re lower income — one, you’re not as educated”

    She needs to spend some time reading about post-docs 😛

    I ain’t no f-ing nail lady, bitch. And I may not have a PHD, but I’ll take some rich idiot with a day job provided by daddy on in a debate on science or current events or public policy any day. Cause, y’know, I READ. And btw, I know an awful lot of MBAs, and “educated” is not precisely how I would describe them.

    Suppose that the President had said, at the beginning of 2009, that he had no intention of addressing the economic problems with the nation and was just going to play golf with other world leaders every day for the rest of his term.

    Would the resulting political upheaval have lead to more fair economic opportunities for the typical person?

    When people have hope for a candidate they will allow “bad things” to happen if those things are seen to be the result of previous political leadership.

    By allowing business to continue as usual while unemployment remains high, Obama is hurting the average person.
