It’s been a mystery to me why President Obama turned his focus away from job creation to all deficit reduction all the time. Mystery no more:
“President Obama’s senior political adviser David Plouffe said Wednesday that people won’t vote in 2012 based on the unemployment rate.
…“The average American does not view the economy through the prism of GDP or unemployment rates or even monthly jobs numbers,” Plouffe said, according to Bloomberg. “People won’t vote based on the unemployment rate, they’re going to vote based on: ‘How do I feel about my own situation? Do I believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family?’ ”
I asked my own senior adviser, Mr. B. Bunny for his reaction to Plouffe’s comments:
I concur, Bugs.
