Watch This: Obama's New 'Hipster Fedora'
The economy is looking up, so it's harder to make the old "bad leader" argument. It's not surprising, then, that Republicans are back to the "he's stuck up"-themed criticism of President Obama. And they're still doing it with a straight face.
Last week Obama was a "snob" for wanting all Americans to have the opportunity to go to college. This week he's a latte-drinking hipster in a fedora, according to Republican Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch.
In comments to Congress about energy policy, Hatch criticized Obama for favoring liberal elites over blue-collar workers. "President Obama has traded in the 'hard hat and lunch bucket' category of the Democratic Party for the hipster fedora and a double skim latte," he said.
