They really do think the American people are stupid and they have nothing but contempt for them when they get their ass kicked at the polls.
The head of the nation’s largest labor group argued Wednesday that voters were “duped” into supporting GOP candidates in the midterm elections.
Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO, said that voters headed to the polls with major concerns about their economic health. Republicans delivered a strong economic message, he said, and Democrats didn’t.
So the GOP delivered a strong economic message, but voters were duped? Um, OK.
While Republicans posted strong electoral gains across the board, Trumka argued that polling shows that that did not necessarily mean that voters wanted a GOP agenda.
That may well be true. What they wanted was Obama and his merry band of idiots stopped in their tracks. But hey, live in denial, fatboy:
And polling done by the AFL-CIO in Senate battleground states found that voters may have selected Republicans, but most still favored left-leaning policies. Their poll found strong majority support for policies like increasing taxes on the wealthy, boosting Social Security benefits, and hiking the minimum wage.
“They may have been duped into voting for people who won’t give them that,” he said.
Just keep believing, Dick.
