Out of Touch

Yet another indication of our feckless leader being out of touch with reality, excerpted from this article.

Bush also said he thinks the characterization of the American electorate as angry, uncivil and bitterly polarized is an overstatement, based on what he has seen traveling the country.

"I think there may be handfuls of people that are very emotional, but I think by far the vast majority of Americans are wanting to know whether they're going to be able to work and whether or not the government's doing its job of protecting the country," he said. "I don't have a sense there's a lot of anger."

Whoo boy. Doesn't have a sense there's a lot of anger? Not polarized? Whoo boy. If it's only handfuls of us that are "very emotional", those hands are pretty damned big.
