“If you look at the U.S., you look at who we’re electing to Congress, to the Senate—they can’t read,” he said. “I’ll bet you a bunch of these people don’t have passports. We’re about to start a trade war with China if we’re not careful here, only because nobody knows where China is. Nobody knows what China is.”
“These people” who “can’t read” include Robert Portman, Marco Rubio, Pat Toomey, Ron Johnson, Mike Lee, John Hoeven, Allen West, John Boozman, and Dan Coats — All Men of considerable accomplishment before being elected to the House or Senate. And I am pretty sure former trade ambassador Rob Portman has a well-used passport.
This is typical of the arrogance of the left. Confirmed dingbats like Patty Murray and Barbare Boxer are presumed to be wise because of their lockstep adherence to liberalism. But the mere fact of one’s conservatism is presumed to be a sign of intellectual deficiency.
This is also typical of the arrogant leftist idiocy of Mike Bloomberg, a guy who was sure the perpetrator of the attempted Times Square bombing would turn out to be a Tea Partier Angry about ObamaCare.
I am reminded of the YouTube of the hipsters at the John Stewart Anti-Beck Rally insisting vehemently that Obama was not a Keynesian because he was born in Hawaii.
