When it comes to talking about the state of the economy, I get so tired talking with folks who parrot newspaper headlines as if it represents their own economic experience. Not too long ago, someone was whining to me about how bad the economy was and how he couldn’t wait until Bush got out of office so that the economy could recover. In his little rant, he also tied it all in to gas prices.
Mind you, he told all of this AFTER giving me a tour of all the recent landscape work he had done to his backyard and telling me where he was going to put the pool and basketball court.
Indeed. Rush Limbaugh talks about his all the time. In survey after survey, Americans express deep concern about “all those other people” who are suffering through the latest economic “crisis” — but they insist that they themselves are doing just fine.
