So, yesterday, Obama was hobnobbing with the Hollywood elite, hauling in gobs of dough for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Angelenos suffered as the city closed streets to accommodate the Democrat:
“I was an Obama supporter, but … was stopped by police from crossing Olympic to get home … during my daily dog walk,” Amy Christine said on the website. “I’ve lost all belief in his judgment. Can he really think he’s more important than the tens of thousands of people trying to get home to their families?”
Emphasis added. There’s so much to the emphasized line — almost as if it is a defining statement of the Obama era.
“The massive traffic jam that resulted from President Obama’s motorcade and speech Monday night in Hancock Park is prompting calls for an investigation from some residents, who say they were caught in traffic for hours.” Kind of a symbol for the divide in American politics today between the governing class and their allies among the superrich and the American people.
While people in positions of power (particularly political power) support the president, those who toil in the private sector (or wish they did), increasingly oppose his agenda.
*Caused by his presence.
UPDATE: Glenn has a good roundup on Obama’s assistance in aggravating LA traffic.
