Erick Erickson: Everything Obama Does Is To ‘Humble The Arrogant Crackers’

Conservative commentator Erick Erickson told talk-radio listeners Friday morning that his theory is that all of President Obama’s policy decisions were “designed to humble the arrogant crackers” who run the United States.

“Barack Obama believes the United States of America is a destabilizing, arrogant force in the world. We need our comeuppance and we need to be humbled,” Erickson said while guest-hosting “The Rush Limbaugh Show.”

“And so everything Barack Obama does domestically and in foreign policy is designed to humble the arrogant crackers who have always run the United States,” he said.

“Barack Obama looks at the United States and sees bad and intends to fundamentally transform it into something good, and in so doing take us down a peg,” he added.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
