How Dumb Does He Think They Are?

His fellow Democrats, that is. Evidently, President Obama thinks they are pretty dim. The Associated Press reports, in an article titled “Obama makes light of anti-tax protests”:

President Barack Obama said Thursday he’s amused by the anti-tax tea party protests that have been taking place around Tax Day. Obama told a fundraiser in Miami that he’s cut taxes, contrary to the claims of protesters.
“You would think they’d be saying thank you,” he said.
At that, many in the crowd at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts stood and yelled, “Thank you!”

Or–to paraphrase–”Thank you sir, might I have another?” Does Obama seriously not understand that most voters–not those who show up for his rallies, but voters of normal competence–are well aware of the tax increases in Obamacare, the tax increases in cap and trade, the tax increases when the Bush tax cuts expire next year, and the looming VAT tax that will impact every American family? Maybe experience with his fellow Democrats has conditioned Obama to believe that Americans will believe anything. If that’s the case, his education should begin in November.
