    Of course he is an elitist. He regards himself as someone elite enough to lead this country. McCain and Clinton are too. Last time we elected a "regular guy" he fucked up Iraq, Afghanistan, Katrina, the economy, Education, and Immigration.

    Bush was an elitist in terms of class and wealth, though not intellectually. Not even close on that count.

    Last time we elected a "regular guy" he caught with his pants down in the Oval Office. both literally and figuratively.;)

    Thinking you can run this country and represent the people does NOT require elitism.

    Politicians PERIOD, regardless which side of the aisle they fall on need to quit thinking they are so damned smart they know what's best for us and LISTEN TO US.

    You know ... "We, the People ..." ?

    I guess if Bush knows his brother wasn't Governor of Florida during Hurricane Andrew he's smarter than some wannabe intellectuals.:cool:

    I never said that Gunny. You deliberately misinterpreted my post.

    It would be more honest to respond to the points I raise than knocking down a straw person that you've imagined.

    Right. You blew it, and got called on it. Get over it and move on.

    George H. W. Bush was president during Hurricane Andrew. FEMA stands for Federal Emergency Management Agency.

    You guys still don't know what an "elitist" is.

    An elitist thinks he's better than others and not accountable to those beneath him.

    Bush isn't elitist. I don't believe I've ever heard anything from or about him that indicates he thinks he's above scrutiny, or he should be given a pass when it comes to doing things that would be wrong if anybody else did them.

    Obama's an elitist in that he thinks he's "special".

    You're being sarcastic, right? He has constantly said he doesn't have to answer to congress or US on what he does. His little Yoo Guy wrote that he can abrogate any law or treaty he wants to. He admitted to breaking the FISA law on multiple occasions. His momma's comment about the people in the Superdome being better off is as elitist as it gets.

    Shirely, you jest or are drinking.
