The haughty, elitist arrogance…

“No matter how many ways they try to analyze last week’s election, the American left will forever reject the most obvious explanation of all: for the first time since Jimmy Carter, Americans got a long, hard look at progressivism. Not the progressivism cloaked in the mainstream media- and Democrat-concocted facade of high-minded reasonableness. The haughty, elitist arrogance of those who truly believe they are the only lights shining across a darkened landscape populated by misguided misfits — misguided misfits who thoroughly rejected their enlightened benevolence.” –columnist Arnold Ahlert

“Here’s Barack Obama’s problem when it comes to dealing with newly elected Republican members of Congress. They are convinced they won because voters rejected Obama’s agenda of national health care, spending and bailouts. But Obama cannot admit that his agenda — his legacy — is fundamentally flawed and that voters repudiated it. The result will be irreconcilable conflict.” –columnist Byron York

“Unlike the Democrats today, [John F.] Kennedy never pretended he was poor or even middle class; he let us know he was upper crust. And if you doubted it for a second, he’d put Jackie on display with her very expensive designer fashions. Today, kazillionaire politicians like Boxer, Feinstein, Bloomberg, Kerry, Clinton, and even a schmuck named Rockefeller, want us to believe they’re just a bunch of regular folks who carry their lunch in a paper bag and shop at Walmart.” –columnist Burt Prelutsky

“Whenever the party that controls the White House does not also control Capitol Hill, political pundits worry that there will be ‘gridlock’ in Washington, so that the government cannot solve the nation’s problems. Almost never is that fear based on what actually happens when there is divided government, compared to what happens when one party has a monopoly of both legislative and executive branches. The last time the federal government had a budget surplus, instead of its usual deficits, there was divided government. … By the same token, some of the worst laws ever passed were passed when one party had overwhelming majorities in both houses of Congress, as well as being led by their own President of the United States.” –columnist Thomas Sowell

“As to whether the president ‘gets it’ about the midterms, it doesn’t matter. As Bill Kristol has observed, Obama is not in the same position as President Clinton was in 1994. Hillarycare was defeated. President Clinton was thus free to let voters know that he had gotten the message and would never try anything like that again. And he didn’t.” –columnist Mona Charen
