I don't think author did much research. He just focused on an ongoing media narrative. Obama certainly did not present himself as "as not truly being of this place". This statement from January is not isolated:
"I think that Senator Clinton, obviously, is a formidable and tough candidate, and we have to make sure that we take it to them just like they take it to us," the Illinois senator said. "I come from Chicago politics. We're accustomed to rough and tumble."
Thanks dogger, who said Obama was above divisive politics?
"I think that Senator Clinton, obviously, is a formidable and tough candidate, and we have to make sure that we take it to them just like they take it to us,
Tough politics isn't the same thing. Divisive politics (or as I call it, Rovarian Politics) involves pitting one group against another. If you get voters angry enough, they will overlook the fact that your candidate is a mean-sprited moron (Bush) or flip-flops more than a fish on hot sand (McCain).
I know most people say "Rovian", but "Rovarian" makes me think of cancer and cysts.
Tough politics, you mean something he vowed to stay above.
"At the start of the campaign, Mrs. Clintons advisers had believed that Mr. Obamas promise of a different kind of politics free of the sharp elbows and attacks of the past generation would handcuff him from running an effective campaign.
They had it wrong, but Mccain will be ready.
LOL, you're delusional. if someone is going to stay above something, they do not get on the same level as what they claim they are above moron.
what you are saying is: 1. obama still can remain above it all; 2. despite that he is giving clinton the SAME as she gives him.
are that you simple?
LMAO. Get real. Moron would describe everything the Dems have offered since Clinton. You can't even get it right this time. Hillary is no prize, but FAR AND AWAY more qualified to be President than Obama.
No... moron describes the subliterate who's occupied the white house for the last 7+ years. You can disagree with Obama, but he's not a moron by a long shot. At least he knows what the Constitution says.
(can anyone say "signing statements"... sure, I knew ya could).
To categorize Dems as offering only morons and ignore Bush is rather, moronic?
You mean like when he explained to the blood bloods in California why small town America won't vote for him?
