Karl Rove: Barack Obama is a Country Club Snob

Karl Rove was impressed with Barack Obama when he first met him. But now he sees him as a “coolly arrogant” elitist. This was Rove’s take on Obama to Republicans at the Capitol Hill Club Monday, according to Christianne Klein of ABC News: “Even if you never met him, you know this guy. He’s the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by.” Actually, that sounds more like W. The cheap populism is really rich coming from Karl Rove. When was the last time he kicked back with a corncob pipe to watch professional wrestling? Rove is trying to spin his myths, as he used to do with such devastating effect, but it won’t work this time. The absurd spectacle of rich white conservatives trying to paint Obama as a watercress sandwich with the crust cut off seems ugly and fake. Obama can be aloof and dismissive at times, and he’s certainly self-regarding, carrying the aura of the Ivy faculty club. But isn’t that better than the aura of the country clubs that tried to keep out blacks? It’s ironic, and maybe inevitable, that the first African-American nominee comes across as a prince of privilege. He is, as Leon Wieseltier of The New Republic wrote, not the seed but the flower of the civil rights movement. Unlike W., Obama doesn’t have a chip on his shoulder and he doesn’t make a lot of snarky remarks. He tries to stay on a positive keel and see things from the other

    Wake the fuck up, Rove! Elitist asshole.

    Bush and his kind continue to weaken the fabric of America.

    “Even if you never met him, you know this guy. He’s the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by.”

    haha that is so spot-on

  4. RewardHonesty says:

    All of these politicians are elitist, and none of them care about anything other than power and money. Ron Paul is an exception. Obama is the worst, by a mile. The real devil can be found behind the curtain at the Federal Reserve, and believe it that Obama is in the corrupt fold. Any intelligent person who does their homework can see that Obama has gone against every single campaign promise he ever made. Watch this video:

  5. OrmEmber says:

    Accusing Barak Obama, a black man, of being a “country club snob”, is peversely perverse, since country clubs conspired to keep blacks out.

    The stupidity from the right just keeps getting stupider.

    So opinion on youtube is meaningful? Just how retarded are you?

  7. upabittoolate says:

    Bullshit story? Do some homework. Also, recognize the fact that Olbermann is NOT expected to review the conservative side of things. Stop fooling yourself (and subsequently lying to me) just to prove some kind of point.

    You can’t win this 1. Checkmate.

  8. CLARKPEST says:

    The commentator is someone who clouds discussions with items not relevant to the subject. Think with truth as the target.

  9. Tmetrvlr says:

    Oh, Rove should talk. Lest we forget what was said in that one story about him being condescending to Christian groups????????. Hmmmmmm, What a hypocrite.

  10. 1trumantucker1 says:

    What’s with you people and “checkmate” or “you’re done”…you people are insane. The FCC is composed of PRESIDENTIALLY ELECTED commisioners. The Obama-appointed chair of the FCC is Juius Genachowski, a democrat and former Harvard classmate of Obama’s. The FCC is SUPPOSED to be politically neutral, but since the panel is appointed by the president, it obviously has political leanings…which is quite liberal under our new president. Show me how this is not the case…or you’re done- good lord

  11. upabittoolate says:

    unless you can show me how the FCC is anyhting but conservative, you’re done.

  12. 1trumantucker1 says:

    OMG…did you honestly just end your comment with “checkmate”? Rush Limbaugh is not expected to address a liberal viewpoint either, that’s not HIS act. As far as the FCC being a “fairly conservative group”, the 5 member panel that makes up the FCC is appointed by the president, so, while it may be fairly conservative under a Republican president, I’m pretty sure Obama will be appointing a more liberal FCC panel while he is in office.

  13. upabittoolate says:

    moron

  14. upabittoolate says:

    keith olbermann is not expected to address a conservative viewpoint. that’s not his act. but more than that, the fairness dotirne is something cooked up by the FCC, a fairly conservative group. checkmate

  15. 1trumantucker1 says:

    I’m curious…are the liberals who are now calling for “fairness doctrine” alson wanting shows like Keith Olberman to be required to positively address the conservative view point?

  16. fede2 says:

    right. because bush was born and raised in a shanty. rove, you disgusting individual.

  17. TheOldNihilist says:

    Yeah it’s like the Giants calling the Steelers the Jets.
    Talk about audacious!!

    Huh?
    (Sarcasm)

  18. bodybager says:

    Karl Rove calling Barack Obama a country club snob is like Adolf Hitler calling Al Sharpton an anti-semite…

    It might be true, but damn, look who’s talking!

  19. whenis2012 says:

    Obama “I won”….now that doesn’t sound arrogant. Boy, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in the next 4 very long years. You thought Bush messed tings up….hahaha Just wait!

  20. chopwallace55 says:

    Oooh you nailed him Keith. Rove is a simple man with a black heart.

  21. MusicJew158 says:

    Amazing job AntiConformist honestly why would anyone listen to Karl Rove. He is the most cynical and unidealistic piece of shit the political arena has seen in a long time. What is middle american values anyway, does that mean white intolerant assholes who are lower class, honestly who gives a shit they are the ones fucking up our country more then anyone. I will take Obama’s supposed elitism over Palin’s religious fanaticism and mental retardation.

  22. kingsman565 says:

    “Karl rove is corrupted!”

    Karl rove is Satan in the flesh!

  23. 85More says:

    …as opposed to Bush who drinks at the country club and then passes out.

  24. PhillyKid07 says:

  25. MaiMoonai says:
