For more than three years, members of the political class have wondered why some Americans disagree with President Barack Obama's policies. Surely, after all, the problem can't be in the policies themselves. If only Americans understood individual mandates and Keynesian economics, they would grasp the logic of Obama's views.
Earlier this week in Iowa, Obama finally spelled out what the political class has suspected all along. His critics are just poorly informed. Here is an excerpt from his speech with the key line in bold.
And when enough of you knock on enough doors and pick up enough phones, and talk to your friends or your neighbors and your coworkers -- and you're doing it respectfully and you're talking to folks who don't agree with you, you're talking to people who are good people, but maybe they don't have all the information -- when you make that happen, when you decide it’s time for change to happen, you know what, change happens. Change comes to America.
