Signs of Citizens' Obama Discord Everywhere

Monday, 14 Sep 2009 09:28 AM

By Grover Norquist

This past week I traveled to the center-right coalition meetings in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and North Carolina and back to D.C. on Saturday. I took my daughter out with stroller and walked for two hours against the flow of the march to the taxpayer rally along Pennsylvania Avenue. How many people? Dunno. But two solid hours of marchers going past. Lots of great signs.

One group of Barack Obama fans was 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 Sen. Moynihan spoke of the Ronald Reagan years as the time he realized that while his age cohort had always railed against the old fogies . . . the modern Democrat party had become them.

Obama and ACORN fancy themselves as 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 XVI and Marie Antoinette analogy. They already have the contempt for the little people down pat.
