Rush pointed out Time Magazine gave Barack Obama Man of the Year status because (are you ready for this?) he was the first president to energize the "low information" voters! In other words the voters who know practially nothing about the issues and the candidates. Evidently he defined himself as "one of them." Now I understand every time I heard him speak I got the impression he was speaking down to us! In other words he doesn't care about engaged citizens: that's not his constituency. His constituency is blacks, Hispanics, and Union members.
