Who’s Playing The Game?

DECLARATIONS, By Peggy Noonan

‘They Won’t Care Till They’re Affected’

“In Iowa and Florida, ‘Wal-Mart moms’ (women who shop at Wal-Mart) take a dim view of Washington.”

“People lampoon (make fun of) the Occupy Wall Street movement as a bunch of marginal freaks, but these women from the heart of the country shared a basic resentment:  The banks got bailed out, everyone else was left holding the bag.

How do they feel about Mr. Obama?  Silence.  Then , ‘indifferent’, disapponted”..there was no anger.”  …Both groups were feistier about Congress.  ‘They’re playing a game.’  ‘What have they done?’   Words were used such as ‘dysfunctional’, …’childish’…’can’t work together.’

“Do they care about you?  ‘No, not so much.’  ‘They won’t care till they’re affected.”

“They all said they care about 2012.  They all said they’d vote.”
