Spot the idiot

A Twilight Zone quote from Obama in his Saturday radio address:

"These steps won't sit well with the special interests and lobbyists who are invested in the old way of doing business. I know they're gearing up for a fight as we speak. My message to them is this: So am I."

I'm not sure if he is that ignorant or if he believes that the American people are that ignorant, but neither is very comforting.

Lobbyists derive their power and influence from government spending. As government grows, so too does the lobbyist, in lockstep.

Special interests are what keep the Democrat Party viable, they are it's raison d'etre. It would not be an exaggeration to say that some of them "own" the party.

Whether Obama is lying or condescending here, this is a truly disturbing quote.
