The Elite Turn Against Obama

by Lloyd Grove - July 7th, 2010 - The Daily Beast

You’d think the well-heeled and enlightened eggheads at the Aspen Ideas Festival—which is running all week in this fashionable resort town with heady panel discussions and earnest disquisitions involving all manner of deep thinkers and do-gooders—would be receptive to an intellectually ambitious president with big ideas of his own.

In a way, the folks attending this cerebral conclave pairing the Aspen Institute think tank with the Atlantic Monthly magazine might even be seen as President Obama’s natural base.

Apparently not so much.

“The real problem we have,” Mort Zuckerman said, “are some of the worst economic policies in place today that, in my judgment, go directly against the long-term interests of this country.”

Obama’s top economic adviser, Larry Summers, and his departing budget director, Peter Orszag, can expect heavy weather when they land in Aspen later this week to make their case to this civic-minded clique of wealthy skeptics.

It appears that some of America's left wing elite, apparently including Barbara Streisand, have started to recognize that their wealth is at serous risk if they continue to support the Magic Marxist Messiah.

A most amazing part of this article is the comments left at the end on the Daily Beast web site. There are a number that advocate pure class hate and pure class warfare. I keep telling the Republican leadership that they are missing the point. Obama is not politics as usual. This is warfare. Obama has declared war on free enterprise. In fact, long before he was President he embraced the belief that America was evil. Obama thinks that destroying America would be a benefit for the world. I don''t agree with him. Yet a lot of his base is angry because they really do not understand the concept of balance of powers. They see Obama as dictator and they do not understand why he has not simply ordered all these Republicans and moderate Democrats to be incarcerated.

They see it as war. Therefor it is.
