I agree with your first point, that there is an incredible amount of populist anger that is only growing. However I have not gotten sense at all that the sheeple are realizing that Obama is responsible for much of this. Most places I go when these topics come up there is not a single mention of Obama and his sophomoric policies, but there is plenty of mention at how difficult it will be for him to clean up the ‘mess left by Bush’.
We are witnessing Stockholm Syndrome on a national scale.
All conservatives and conservative-leaning types are enraged by the stimulus. The no-principles sheeple moderates that swing elections will pick up on it soon enough. Again, it’s only been 3 weeks.
That word, populist, nearly always is used as a pejorative.
From the online Miriam-Webster Dictionary:
2: a believer in the rights, wisdom, or virtues of the common people
By that definition, give me a little 'populism' anytime.
