Can I just say 'DUH'

I just have to comment on today's 'news' that American families are feeling the economic crunch and how it is effecting women versus men.

Excerpted from a piece on Yahoo news -

Another reason politicians aren't making hay of the plight of males is that they are well aware that women are in no mood for it. Working-class and lower-middle-class women in particular, whether or not their men have jobs, are feeling economically stressed, says Bill McInturff, a pollster for Senator John McCain. He adds, "In focus groups they talk about how 'I'm taking care of my parents, his parents, buying groceries, taking kids to the doctor.' These women are tired."

Once again I get the feeling that the politicians all have their heads up their butts. This is nothing new so I'm left saying 'DUH' to this quote and wondering why they needed focus groups to figure it out.
