D.C. Means "Dis-Connect"

Only 26% of the public believe President Obama will be re-elected as President in 2012.

However, in Washington D.C. among the political elites, 49% believe he will be re-elected.

While President Obama may find great comfort from those in the District, the rest of us seem to see things very differently.

Why is there such a dis-connect between the politicians and the citizens?

Two different worlds, we live in two different worlds, as the song goes.

Seventy percent (70%) of DC elites admit the economic mess has not necessarily affected them as much as regular people---the average citizen.

Seventy percent of the elites (70%) see the Tea Party movement as a fad. Oh my.

Eighty one percent (81%) of those who believe the President will not be re-elected, believe the country is headed in the wrong direction.

Eighty two percent (82%) of them see the economy heading in the wrong direction and overwhelmingly want Obama's Health Care bill repealed.

This is a link to
POLITICO's story and the poll.

Obviously there is a significant dis-connect between those who serve and the people they are supposed to be serving.

Much communication will be needed in the coming months. Our job is to help these leaders get connected to the real world where we live.

Be Prayerful. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be A Connector. Be Blessed.

Thank you for
your support of what we do. God bless you.

  1. I'm definitely a pessimist, but believe the tea party a fad like the Owl Party or Moral Majority, AND in the stupidity of the citizens. A population that's split between wanting anarchy, no public schools, and no federal government, and wanting it all (unearned); that allows its coal and other resources to be shipped to China, and supports corporations that sell us Chinese junk. They also support (ELECT) a government that defers taxation (and functions) to private elite corporations who then bribe (political donations) our government so their executives (covertly and unmonitored) can make more unethical and obscene millions.
    I wonder how many poll respondents believe the earth is flat and at the center of the universe?
