A Mere Senator

I'm currently watching today's White House press conference and I've now caught Press Secretary Robert Gibbs twice use the phrase, "a mere Senator."

"The president talked about this when he was a mere senator and a candidate..."

How soon before everyone jumps on this as an insult to the US Senate or arrogance on the part of Obama that he no longer considers himself "a mere senator"?

Watch that empty suit mcconnel say they won't vote for the bailout because Obama hurt their feelings.
