Barack Obama, a young man raised by a single parent who rose up to become a United States Senator and Presedential hopeful. Politics aside, you have to admit this guy is impressive. This week he’s being blasted in the media for telling the truth about the bitter mindset of middle class thinkers. Obama’s being called an ‘elitest’ because the masses are afraid of the truth. I can imagine the closed door conversations among Washington insiders about this one. It’s one of those things ever thinking person knows is true, but you can’t say when you’re running for President. Obama’s only mistake was verbalizing his thoughts, which are tough for the masses to swallow. This is the same mental toughness lesson as the distinction between Middle class thinkers and World class thinkers. There’s obviously a difference in the way super successful people think, yet it doesn’t make them better than anyone else. Is it elitest to say some people are better thinkers than others? Is it elitest to say Harvard is a better college than South Alabama? Is it elitest to say people who are thin and healthy have better diet and exercise habits than people who are fat and out of shape? It’s not elistism, it’s objective reality! I’ll look forward to your thoughts on this one. Steve Siebold (6:10 )

An “Afro Leninist”?
That’s a first for me…
LOVE conquers all!
Try it sometime.
Love you Steve.
I really appreciate all the comments and well as the private emails I received on this post. Isn’t it great we can all debate an important issue like this even when we strongly disagree.
As always, I’ll be considering the points made by everyone with a different point of view. I hope you’ll do the same.
Thanks again to everyone who sounded off on this post.

Polarization that defines a specific in such a way that it is identified as representing the general either intentially or not leads to a disparity that is far from world class thinking. It leads to intellectual dishonesty at worse and intellectual retardation at best. Discerning the shapes and meanings of objective reality in all it’s variations in this election year is an intellectual exercise that with seven months yet to go, we get to watch and if we want make a choice.
This is a PERFECT statement of why the country is in such a hideous mess, and why the average american is sick to death of ‘business as usual’ coming out of DC and the various political offices nationwide. The ‘elites’ opinion of themselves is WAY overblown. They are ALL above the law, above the Constitution, and better than everyone else, and if anyone thinks that black or female candidates are DIFFERENT than the white males in this respect, Obama’s statement, and Hillary’s brazen ambition has demonstrated a completely different reality. All ‘three’ of the candidates are just as corrupt as the Bush administration. The situation has gotten so bad that the most ‘mindless’ sheeple could convict the current adminstration without much effort, but our do-nothing democratic congress can’t seem to bring themselves to even try. My hope is that THIS IS THE YEAR when the parties CRUMBLE and lose it, and when third parties really start to rise. There is NO ROOM in either party for people like me, and so many others, who care about the country and the citizens in it, no matter what I may think of them- they are all americans, all have inherent value, all have rights that the elites and the politicians are trampling on without regard to ANYTHING, even the LAW. Its way past time for this crap to END.
Experience demands that man is the only animal which devours his own kind, for I can apply no milder term to the general prey of the rich on the poor.
Obama is nothing more than a “Afro-Leninist”, like his spiritual guide Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. And a “world class thinker” may be considered, especially this case, to be an elitist.
Obama’s recent comments on the “bitter” middle class is another perfect example of saying anything without thinking. In fact, I will go a step further and say that Obama will say anything to get elected. If he could say I will give everyone a million dollars if you vote for me he’d probably say it, the reason he doesn’t is even mindless media driven middle class sheeple know that even our great government can’t do that. Thomas Jefferson is rolling in his grave.
