The Anti-Obama

Instapundit Glenn Reynolds, blogging about the rise of Trump. He calls The Donald:
A natural response to a ruling class that doesn’t much care for the country it rules, and that has gotten uninterested in hiding the fact.
For example, here is Obama's 2008 description of the country he then campaigned to lead, according to BrainyQuote.
They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
Obama clearly "doesn't much care for the country" and its people. Read it again, Obama's description exactly mirrors Trump's platform: guns, religion, anti-immigrant, and anti-trade.

I'll say it again: Trump is the anti-Obama. What Obama denigrates, Trump promotes.
