Sam's Club voters?!? That just says it all

Okay, so just the fact that he calls them "Sam's Club voters" shows his opinion of them and why they don't believe Republicans "are for the working person." Also, it shows just how out of touch they are with how many people have to shop at Sam's Club and Costco these days to save money and to get by.

From CNN.com:

Pawlenty urges GOP outreach to 'Sam's Club voters'
Posted: 11:16 AM ET

From CNN Political Producer Peter Hamby

(CNN) - Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty told the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday that Republicans must do a better job of reaching out to working class voters, a group he said agrees with the GOP on most issues, from gun rights to heath care to education.

The problem, Pawlenty said, is that lower and middle income voters - a group he terms "Sam's Club voters" - don't believe Republicans "are for the working person."

He said the party must stress its commitment to job creation and market itself "with a feel and concern and tone and an understanding of the importance and the challenges of the working class of this country."

"And it doesn't mean we have to sacrifice our principles to do it," Pawlenty said.

Like most of the Republicans who have addressed the annual gathering of conservatives this week, Pawlenty chided the White House for passing a "sprawling spending buffet" disguised as an economic recovery package.
