Angry voters are heardPosted Wednesday, January 20, 2010, at 1:29 PM
From the White House, following Republican Scott Brown's win in the special Massachusetts election to fill the late Ted Kennedy's Senate seat:
"White House officials acknowledged that one of the lessons from Massachusetts was the intensity of voter anger," the Associated Press reports.
It took them this long to understand? They haven't heard/seen "Tea Party" events or the voices of people at town meetings last year? I realize attendees at those events were more activist than the average voter but, still, they represent a larger group of people.
Actually, I wonder if politicians from either party listen to the common people anymore...
