Why does washington always refer to citizens as "ordinary folks" like we're not important. I think we're all but ordinary!—

A visibly frustrated President Obama addressed the press briefly tonight after meeting with the leaders of the House and Senate in fiscal cliff talks. Obama called it “mind boggling” that legislators hadn’t been able to conclude a deal to avert the fiscal cliff, noting that “ordinary folks, they do their job. They meet deadlines.”
Plenty of ordinary folks were watching and decided to take advantage of the spotlight the president cast on them to share some other things ordinary folks do and don’t do.
