The Heartland Never ‘Overrated’ Obama
I wish there were some profound explanation for their willful blindness, but I have found none. As best as I can fathom, it derives from equal parts snobbery and timidity. The Ivy-educated Obama is one of them. I am not. I went to school at Purdue. (So did Herman Cain, and, partly as a result, our media do not take him as seriously as they have Obama.) I live in Kansas City. I edit a regional business magazine. If someone like me discovers something, how could it possibly be true? If a Beltway editor endorses it, might not he too be dubbed a conspiracy theorist?”
Hopefully someday we’ll know why the media- left and right-continue to dance around Obama’s past.
