As Dems face defeat, lib columnist attacks voters

Thomas Lifson
The stupid public is unworthy of their Democrat masters, according to Washington Post Pulitzer Prize winner Eugene Robinson, in his column today. The public, you see, wants quick fixes, and isn't willing to accept  with equanimity the harsh realities of life under Barack Obama (I paraphrase).

We've heard this before, most memorably in Peter Jennings' comment that voters in 1994 threw a "temper tantrum" when they gave the House of Representatives majority to Republicans in the midterm elections following the HillaryCare debacle. In discussing his column today on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Robinson actually used the Jennings-esque phrase.

Robinson claims he is not being partisan, that his comments apply to the electorate in general, though he acknowledges his liberal politics are well known. If he ever criticized the electorate for failing to be patient and realistic about , say, victory in Iraq under President Bush, it has escaped my attention.

Robinson hilariously justifies his call for higher taxes on the "rich" with the need to invest in infrastructure, as if the vast entitlements, recently expanded, did not dwarf any proposed infrastructure spending.

I seriously hope that other liberal media bigshots pick up the theme of telling voters they are too stupid to vote for Democrats. Sure, that'll work.
