“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening.”
As would be expected, the person quoted has been attacked by the opposite political party. However, the thought expressed is a two-edged sword. I suspect the other party would say the same thing (albeit not openly) when the shoe is on the other foot. Much of their response is due to the popular perception of this politician.
Without a name (and thus baggage) attached to the quote, do you agree or disagree with this assessment of our current situation? If you know who said this, please don’t give it away – let the statement stand on its own merit. Is it accurate . . . or merely elitist?
