44. I don't think it was intended that way, though.
What I got from the clip is that he was - eventually - frustrated by the fact that fellow liberals were attacking him for no good reason after he had explained his record, his views and his beliefs, and the "idiot liberals" comment was meant in the sense of "sheesh, it's bad enough that I have to deal with idiot republicans who don't know anything about anything, but I shouldn't have to deal with idiot liberals who don't understand the obvious that they should understand because we're smarter than that".

(Okay, I didn't word that all that well, but I think the point is clear)

I don't think he was at all dissing liberals in general. I think he was exasperated with those who were being rather deliberately obtuse and who were obviously not knowledgeable about the facts or about his record or even about how government works. I can't say that I blame him for losing patience with them in the circumstances.

Just my $0.02
