Speaking at a climate conference hosted by the American Renewable Energy Institute, Steyer said:
http://www.cnsnews.com/mrctv-blog/curtis-kali...I think if you were to go around to most of the what I would think of as super-sophisticated people who think about politics and policy more than five minutes a month we are doing really well.
And the question in the United States of America is how are we doing with everybody else, which is the 99.5 percent of the people whose lives are very busy and complicated and pressing and they dont have a lot of time to think about the things that dont immediately impact themselves and their family.
Steyers sweeping generalization is not a new excuse made for why liberal ideas are not shared by a large swath of the electorate. Coming from a side of the political isle that prides itself on ending hate and precluding judgment on those that are not like them, many wealthy liberal activists have been quick to make harsh conclusions about any group of people with whom they disagree.
