He’s ignoring the prattle and saying “so what” to the natterers who try to make something out of nothing! It smacks of desperation on the part of the critics, the point being to distract you from his message. He stated, for instance, that “a major cause of our recent downturn was a housing crisis created by reckless government policies” and that we don’t need MORE government as the Democrats seem to believe. And that it’s wrong to think that “more government spending” is the answer to all our problems. Etc. It’s a painful message so you must be distracted by minutia.
