CollegeGuy2009 saidUnfortunately, considering the average American reading level is something near 8th grade proficiency... politicians may be right, many American's aren't too bright. If this sort of tactic works - of course they use it.
Exactly, CollegeGuy. It has been working for 8 years, and there's no reason for the overconfident Republicans to sway away from the 1960's Donna Reed Show/Leave it to Beaver view of the world that Republicans not only seemed to have, but as you can tell from the posts on RJ, still do. They yearn for an America that exists only in their minds, and, if in reality, in very few households.
So, if the Joe the Plumber doesn't meet that image in reality, well just create a bit of disinformation to make him fit.
