Do Conservatives Know Average People?

Former Reagan administration official and CNBC host Larry Kudlow writes in the National Review about cheers and applause for Bush on the floor of the NYSE. Kudlow takes this to mean somehow that everyone else is wrong on Bush's poor economic record and horrid job performance.

What kind of world is it you inhabit when the beyond very well to do traders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange share anything remotely in common with the average American beyond living in the same country and breathing the same air?

Kudlow further says that Bush got applause because of 9/11. Okay, tell him to go to Harlem or even Manhattan and see if the response is the same as it is from very very rich stockbrokers.
