The New York Times is shocked, just shocked to find that a New Poll Finds Deep Distrust of Government:

With Election Day just over a year away, a deep sense of economic anxiety and doubt about the future hangs over the nation, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll, with Americans’ distrust of government at its highest level ever.

The Times credits the malaise to everything except one thing:  Obama’s relentless agitation setting American against American based on jealously and envy, the Oval Office equivalent of the Occupy Wall Street protesters banging drums.
