Senate Democrats are Upset by Barack Obama's Arrogance

According to this article senate Democrats are becoming annoyed at Barack Obama and his arrogance.
“They think they know what’s right and everyone else is wrong on everything,”
groused one senior Senate Democratic aide. “They are kind of insufferable at
this point.”
That is how a senior Democrat aide is describing Barack Obama and his campaign. What's funny here is that it is quite natural for Barack Obama to feel as though he knows what is right for everybody. It is perfectly reasonable for him to believe that everybody else is wrong. Most nanny state politicians are Democrats. Nanny staters believe that they know what is best for everybody, they believe they are right and everybody else is wrong. So why wouldn't Barack Obama feel the same way?
They are also upset that he just shows up wherever he pleases with little advanced notice and local Democrats miss the opportunity to have their picture taken with them for publicity purposes. Barack Obama is only concerned with his own campaign, and not interested in helping other Democrats get elected. In my opinion he is correct here. He should only be focused on getting himself elected, but this is causing a rift with other self-important Democrats who feel Obama owes them something.
Until a mailing that went out in the past few days, Obama had done little fund
raising for Democratic candidates
Obama has sometimes appeared in members’
districts with no advance notice to lawmakers, resulting in lost opportunities
for those Democrats to score points by appearing alongside their party’s
presumptive presidential nominee.
They also feel that Barack Obama feels a sense of entitlement:
Democratic leadership staffers complain that, having defeated the vaunted
Clinton political machine in the primaries, the Obama campaign now feels a
“sense of entitlement” that leads to “arrogance.”
Again, this is part of the mindset that has been inculcated into the minds of the Democrat voters. The entitlement mindset has been what the Democrats have been playing to for many, many years. It is perfectly understandable that someone who has been raised on this mentality would believe he is entitled to whatever he wants. Democrats are reaping what they have sown and the fruit is bitter.
