Perry Gets Cunning: Says Obama Had a "Privileged" Background, Can't Relate To Real Workers

Why is it cunning? Because let's face it, we wanted to hear that, and now he's in a spat with the entirety of the pinched-face liberal media.

"He grew up in a privileged way," Perry said while explaining his ad attack that decries President Obama's description of America as being "a little bit lazy over the last couple of decades."

Obama made the comments Saturday in Hawaii during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit as he explained the nation can do a better job of selling goods outside of the U.S.

"You know, he never had to really work for anything and he never had to go through what Americans are going-you know, there's 14-plus million Americans sitting out there, some of them watching this program tonight that don't have a job," Perry said in an interview on Fox News.

"The president has never felt that angst that they have in their heart."

Smart. Look, in terms of primary politics, you really can't go wrong busting on Obama in a personal way and starting a headline-grabbing feud with the media.

Which isn't to say he doesn't believe it.

Just that sometimes what you believe turns out to be advantageous to say.

I'm not sure what kind of a hardship tale Obama had as a youngster. It probably is wrong to say, as a youngster, he was "privileged."

But for the entirety of his juvenile and adult life, he's been pampered, and endlessly promoted without actual achievement based on his promise alone.

Yes, that is privilege. It just kicked at around age 15.
