What Did Saturday’s Crowd at the Mall Mean?
And this post from yesterday, “The Need for Speed,” argues where the GOP must go from here.
The president’s dismissal of the crowd as something Glen Beck “stirred up” underscores his detachment from the distress in the economy and the concern average Americans have over the country’s direction. Beck provided an occasion for a gathering, but he didn’t drag at least 300,000 people to the Mall. So long as the president continues to govern with a remote arrogance that is mirrored in the statements of Nancy Pelosi and other senior Democrats, the electoral fury will continue to gather.
