Dennis Cardoza (D-Atwater), who is retiring at the end of his term, has published a sort of goodbye note to his president, a blistering critique in which Cardoza blasts President Obama as an arrogant “professor” who has alienated himself from his fellow Democrats and the American public. Writing in the Washington newspaper the Hill, Cardoza called Obama an out-of-touch elitist, given to lectures but uninterested in the struggles of real people. He spoke of the early days of Obama's presidency, when the White House, he charges, suffered from “idea disease.” “Every week, and sometimes almost every day, the administration rolled out a new program for the country,” Cardoza wrote.
