Plouffe made the comments to reporters at a Bloomberg breakfast earlier this week.“The average American does not view the economy through the prism of GDP or unemployment rates or even monthly jobs numbers,” Plouffe said. “People won’t vote based on the unemployment rate, they’re going to vote based on: ‘How do I feel about my own situation? Do I believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family?’”
The remarks exploded today on Twitter, and Mitt Romney pounced. “If David Plouffe were working for me, I would fire him and then he could experience firsthand the pain of unemployment,” Romney said, accusing Obama of a “cavalier attitude about the economy.”
It means that what Obama said in the SOTU speech about the worst of the recession being over ain't the load of crap that you thought it was after all, meaning that the speechwriter that wrote it and put it on the teleprompter is alot smarter than you or me.
