My parents were actively involved in Republican Party in Houston TX in the 50’s & 60’s.
They both came from poor backgrounds especially my mother, who taught us to vote for the person that best represented our beliefs and not some political party. I don’t think she ever felt comfortable around Rich Republicans that we lived amongst.
Both my parents had no use for the Bush Family. Since Elder Bush was the same age of my father, and also in the oil business, they had opportunities to socialize.
I once asked my father what he thought of Elder Bush. I can’t repeat his exact quote due to some colorful language, but I can tell you a real story.
One Friday night, my parents came home from a dinner party unexpectantly early. Now on Friday night I was allowed to stay up late, so I was up to witness just how mad my mother was.
I found out what happened the next day. You see my parents had had dinner with George and Barbara and another couple which my Dad did business with. Apparently, after a posh dinner, they group retired to the living room where they sat around the coffee table, talking about their Aspen ski vacations and drinking champagne out of the ladies shoes.
This did not sit well with my mother who grew up very, VERY poor! Her face matched her red hair and her hand shook as she had a drink to calm herself down. She vowed NEVER to vote for ANYONE WITH the last name of BUSH which she did!
The definition of Elitist as defined by the most current dictionary is:
The belief that certain persons or members of certain classes or groups deserve favored treatment by virtue of their perceived superiority, as in intellect, social status, or financial resources.
So who are the true Elitists? The BUSH FAMILY, FOR CERTAIN! the Clintons, AND John McCain, MOST LIKELY!
However, for the life of me, I don’t see how anyone applies this definition to Senator Obama.
It’s all politics! I guess they are playing with the fact that under the Republican program “No child left behind” LESS PEOPLE understand the definition of words!
So with a bunch of dumb ass people that don’t know the meaning of simple words, it is not a wonder that they try to use disinformation in this way.
I still say, we need to make people smarter! Check this out!
In other words, there are a lot of people who still can’t read and don’t have a clue what the word elitist means!
