R. Emmet Tyrell, writing in the Washington Times, argues President Obama’s campaign is going for the moron vote. I’m not sure I’d use that word, but I certainly recognize there seem to be more people who are willing to assume the worst regarding anybody who disagrees with them, and who are willing to say so publicly and to act upon that assumption, and it certainly seems that’s who the President is hoping will vote for him.
Let us come to the point. Mr. Obama is reaching out to his very own special constituency. It is composed of those who believe that the Republicans would put up as their candidate for the presidency a person who in his business life would engage in fraud, tax evasion and even murder. Mr. Obama is casting his net for the moron vote. I do not believe there are enough morons out there to re-elect him.
