Down to Earth

Obama wasn't dragged to the left by the left-wing leadership of his party. He IS the left-wing leader of his party.

Charles Krauthammer sums up Obama's troubles.

He campaigned as a centrist and as a likeable, intelligent person. Now he's telling people to shut up and "get out of the way" and implying that grass-roots opposition to his proposals is misinformed, ignorant and evil. He is no longer the post-racial, post partisan "magical negro" (don't blame me, a liberal columnist came up with that appellation) who will bring people together and lift the country up as one, he is but a mere mortal, just another Chicago pol who rewards his friends and punishes his enemies.

Not sure about "evil"
but definitely "grass-roots opposition to his proposals is misinformed, ignorant"

It's also not so much grassroots as the misinformation is being manufactured and distributed.
