Howard Kurtz reports
[Roger Ailes] offers this observation about Obama:
“He just has a different belief system than most Americans.”
That seems a rather loaded phrase—different belief system—even if you strongly disagree with most of Obama’s policies. It fits the view of those who are trying to paint the president as being outside the mainstream.
Dude, policies stem from belief systems. Obama sees the State as a gigantic nanny - the ultimate helicopter parent
. Most people do not regard the citizenry as children.
(My 2006 Elitism = Paternalism
post has something to say about the nanny state - and nanny press.)
Oh, and Howie, have you seen the President's poll numbers? What part of "outside the mainstream" do you not understand?
