A couple weeks ago, Rudy Giuliani was in the paper, quoted that a gallon of milk was something like $1.95 when it was over $4 in Manhattan. He was asked about a few other everyday items and failed miserably about the cost.
This is what totally pisses off average people. Beyond the fact that they vote to help their business buddies once they're in office.... they are sooooooo out of touch about what real people deal with.
I don't remember if it was Reagan or the first Bush, but one of them went to a JC Penneys and had no clue about the cost of socks, and had to borrow cash from a secret service guy to pay for them.
Life-long politicians disgust a lot of people. Me included. This may feed into M'skis worries about people bashing GW.
