Kristol Has a Ball with Obama

Obama lobs one in and Billy Kristol hits it out of the park.

Money Q:

What does this mean for Obama’s presidential prospects? He’s disdainful of small-town America — one might say, of bourgeois America. He’s usually good at disguising this. But in San Francisco the mask slipped. And it’s not so easy to get elected by a citizenry you patronize.

And what are the grounds for his supercilious disdain? If he were a war hero, if he had a career of remarkable civic achievement or public service — then he could perhaps be excused an unattractive but in a sense understandable hauteur. But what has Barack Obama accomplished that entitles him to look down on his fellow Americans?

UPDATE: Mickey Kaus' analysis is pretty good too.

Man, it’s just one thing after another with this guy.

Let’s see… B. Hussein Obama is a black militant racist, a Socialist extremist, The Most Liberal Member of Congress, maybe a closeted Muslim and certainly a Muslim sympathizer, a gun-grabber, and he’s also a smug elitist that looks down his racist black nose at commoner whites he sees as being beneath him. Not to mention the fact that he is grossly inexperienced to be president and has zero policy positions other than his broad, vague, feel-good platitudes about “change”.

What will it take for the idiots to abandon this guy? It sure seems like Obama could literally stand up and say, “Down with whitey! Down with America!” while stomping on kittens and many folks would still blindly support him. I am not kidding. They want a black in that job and they don’t care what black. Period.

Tell us, Dave, I want to hear just exactly what it would take for you to abandon your blind support for B. Hussein Obama. Is there anything that he could say or do that would make you bail on him? Anything at all?

Bill Kristol has ZERO faith in Christ, so he seems rather unqualified to criticize Obama's faith.

It never stops you from bashing others' religious beliefs.

And it make ZERO sense to shoot ourselves in the face with Liberalism just to spite a few problems that have come to light on the Repub watch.

No, B. Hussein Obama is the Affirmative Action Black Candidate and nothing more. You said so yourself before. Your support of him is that of a blind partisan apologist.
