... clean-up required.
John Kerry at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor on voter anger:
"I think there's a comprehension gap," said Kerry. His point: While people may not be feeling the benefits of the bailouts and healthcare reform yet, Congress has been working with Obama to right the economic ship. Still, he sounded sympathetic to those kicked around by the economy. "There's a sense of some things unraveling" to them, said Kerry.
But he said that the D.C.-directed attacks are hypocritical, since many of those attacking Washington spending presumably want to keep their Social Security and Medicare and want Washington to play a big role in the Gulf Oil cleanup. "There's a huge contradiction on a daily basis," he said.
Maybe, he concluded, the Democrats should change their communications strategy "to better sell what we've done."
Translation: you bunch of worthless fly-over rubes aren't showing the proper amount of appreciation for the stellar and upstanding work you're benevolent overseers in D.C. are performing on your behalf.
And that last sentence from the pull quote is priceless. You're right, Senator. It's not that your ideas really, really suck or anything like that. It's just that you all haven't done a good enough job explaining the positive merits of porkulus, a hostile take-over of the domestic auto industry and a health care reform law no one wants.
