He's at the what club now?

Karl Rove gives tips to Republicans on how to characterize Obama:

"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."


I think that's going to go over big.

GOP: Hear that, America? He's THAT guy at the country club!
AMERICA: What? I don't belong to a country club! I don't know what you're talking about!
GOP: Oh, you know, it's like you've just finished a round of golf at the club and you're having a cigar and you're talking about the merger deal and this guy comes up--
AMERICA: I'm sorry, I don't have time to talk right now, they're foreclosing on my house. I have to go.

"You know, the snide, entitled guy who acts like he's better than everyone and doesn't need to listen to what anybody says. Whose life has been such an endless series of lucky breaks that he doesn't even realize he's lucky. That guy."

They're trying to portray Obama as G.W. It's kinda brilliant if you think about it.

Yeah, it's sort of funny though, country-club GOPers calling out Obama for being, well, too much like themselves.

I guess in their minds Obama isn't "authentic" because he would look out-of-place sitting down and having a (non-alcoholic) beer with some long-haul trucker at a greasy-spoon in Nebraska. So, instead, they try to portray him as that annoying "new guy" who won't interact with the "regulars" at the 19th Hole Bar, but chooses to stand apart, sipping his Smirnoff martini, smoking a "contraband" Cuban cigar, while making snarky comments about all the CEO's who 20 years ago would have expected him to serve THEM that same martini, and who are just a little bit put out that they can't call him "boy" any longer.

So, as a Public Service they just want to remind the rest of non-country club America that Obama is someone who clearly doesn't know his place...

I just laughed out loud reading your post. So true. So true. Karl Rove: open mouth + stick foot in [but watch your 6K shoes while doing it]!!!
