Policy and Polls

Am I the only one who sees an oddity in the way that President Obama cites polls? When confronted with a poll saying that a significant majority of Americans don’t want the debt ceiling raised, he says that voters don’t know what they are talking about and the poll should be disregarded. When given a poll that says voters want taxes raised he says that voters are wise and the poll should guide government policy.   Interesting.

Government by the shifting winds of the polls. No wonder this country is in such a mess.
