POLITICO’s Arena features Grover Norquist’s thoughts on the 9/12 rallies:
This past week I travelled to the center-right coalition meetings in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and North Carolina and then this morning back to DC. I took my daughter out with stroller and walked for two hours against the flow of the 9/12 march to the taxpayer rally along Pennsylvania Ave. How many? Dunno. But two solid hours of marchers going past. Lots of great signs. One group of Obama fans standing off to one side. They were huddled around their sign "billionaires for tax cuts" and dressed in tuxes. They looked vaguely ridiculous contrasted with tens of thousands of actual middle class citizens sickened by the greed of Washington. The late Senator Moynihan spoke of the Reagan years as the time he realized that while his age cohort had always railed against the old farts…the modern Democrat party had become the old farts.
Obama and ACORN fancy they are the community organizers. They should drop by and see what real outrage and real community organizing–without taxpayer subsidies or paid union staff in purple T-shirts–looks like.
The denizens of the White House lack only big wigs to complete the Louis the Sixteenth and Marie Antoinette analogy. The already have the contempt for the little people down pat.
