"Concern over the economy is the highest I've ever seen," top GOP pollster Ed Goeas told the moderate Republican Ripon Society. He said 72 percent are worried about an economic downturn.Here.
"Republicans need to get into the game on better turf and that means talking in specifics about how we will bring the economy back and help create the jobs that go with real recovery," added pollster David Winston.
Tell the truth.
You could sense that all the social drama, gay marriage, the other things that have caught the "public's attention"...you could sense that it was all a distraction to keep you from focusing on the real issue.
I contend that even ISIS is a sideshow to what should really concern Americans.
Its the economy stupid!
The economy is the 800 pound gorilla in the room and it appears that many are waking up to that fact. Additionally it seems that I've been joined in my skepticism with regard to the glowing reports coming from Wall Street, the Labor Dept and other institutions that supposedly give us economic indicators.
The worrying thing?
Say that we're all wrong and things are actually fine. We could be setting ourselves up for a self fulfilling event. If people actually act on these fears, start saving, buying only "necessary gear" etc....then we could actually tip ourselves into a downturn.
Interesting times....of course I'm no economic expert so I could easily be wrong. Feel free to correct me.
NOTE: AMAZING! I talk about the Gay Marriage and the Confederate Flag debate being distractions and that the economy is the real worry and what is the conversation about in the comments? The freaking Confederate Flag! We're screwed. Easily distracted, easily fooled, easily deceived and easily defeated. Society doesn't stand a chance against the powers that be.
