Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
“When I listen to the Walmart moms, in these focus groups, they didn’t say, ‘You know what I need, I need fewer environmental regulations for businesses, that will really help me out,’ ” says Omero. “They said, ‘I would like college affordability, and milk for everybody, and affordable housing, pay my electric bill.’ These very tangible things.”This should scream out, loud and clear, to anyone with half a brain that these women have no business voting. If you could go back a century and show this to the women's groups back then, they would have dropped the suffragettes, and stuck with alcohol prohibition.
This gives me a bit of hope."Twenty-five percent of Walmart moms blame “people who took on too much credit and live beyond their means,” the No. 1 answer. In second place was former President George W. Bush, with 22 percent. Third was “Wall Street banks and big corporations,” at 15 percent. Obama came in fourth with 7 percent."Not much, but a bit, a tiny bit. At least 3% more recognize that Bush was not some kind of evil genius that deliberately destroyed the economy, and the end consumers need to carry some of the blame.But, let's see if that sentiment continues to the voting booth in 2012
