The MSM and their liberal politician friends revel in proclaiming their admiration for average Americans. But scratch a liberal, and find condescending contempt for the people they pretend to glorify.
Take Larry O'Donnell. On his MSNBC show this evening, discussing President Obama's problems in convincing voters that the economy is on the road to recovery, O'Donnell denigrated most Americans. Declared O'Donnell: the majority of voters "don't really know anything about the economy."

Watch O'Donnell dis most Americans as economic ignoramuses.
LARRY O'DONNELL: President Obama says he hopes the latest jobs report showing an increase in the unemployment rate back up to 9.1% is just an abnormality and not a longer trend. And he's trying to convince voters that his administration is making progress recovering from the financial crisis that they inherited in 2008.
BARACK OBAMA: We are on the path of a recovery but it's got to accelerate. The recovery is going to be uneven and there are going to be times where we are making progress but people are still skittish and nervous, and the markets get skittish and nervous, and so they pull back because they're thinking about the traumas of just two-and-a-half years ago.
O'DONNELL: But a recent poll shows that a majority of voters--a majority of whom don't really know anything about the economy--don't believe that the economy is recovering and blame President Obama for the struggling economy.
