The Chasm Between D.C. and Real America

Charlie Cook observes that the Democrat party should avoid "the recovery" in their politicking.

What goes UN-said is the wide chasm between D.C./Beltway 'dwellers' (to be polite) and the rest of the country think regarding the economy.  That chasm is hinted at in this graf:

...From a political perspective, what a cross section of American voters think of the economy matters more than a panel of the top economists. Last month's NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showed that 57 percent of Americans believe we are still in a recession; just 41 percent say we are not, with pessimism just gradually diminishing over the last few years. It is what average people think that's important, not what economists say....

The only "recovery" going full steam is the one in D.C. and the Beltway.  Other regions vary from godawful to mediocre, with only a couple of other bright spots--North Dakota's oil-shale area being the only Midwestern one that comes to mind offhand.

Not to worry.  The (R) Party figures that cheap labor and ObozoCare Lite will remedy the recession. 

Be happy!!  (And Buy More Ammo.)
