The Democrats, who are desperately trying to keep a happy face while being constantly confronted with the dire political circumstances of their own making, have just about emptied their Bolshevik bag of tricks. With each passing day, yet another of the “reasons” for the impending implosion of the demented Democrats makes its way into the news. Today we learned that there are 41.8 million Americans (some legal, some not..) receiving food stamps. There is no such thing as a “free lunch” and those who have to PAY for those 41.8 million (and so many others..) “free lunches” have just about had it with the Democrats. That is why I am holding out “hope” for “change”..
The good news for America is that the patented lies of today from the liberal Democrats aren’t making any headway when it comes to those voters that they have lost based upon their lies of the past.. All of the “feel good fascism” of 2008 has been eroded by double digit unemployment, “historic” deficits and more and more and more taxes to pay for the Democrat’s benevolence.. A number of the “victims” of Obama and the Democrats are those that were directly lied to in 2008 and beyond. They seem to be having a Howard Beale “I’m mad as Hell and I’m not going to take it anymore” sort of moment.. That is why we should hold out “hope”..
If we can, lets try to formulate a kind of Democratic syllogism. As of this writing and unless ACORN is doing the counting, whites are still make up the majority of Americans citizens. Obama and the Democrats have targeted the majority of American citizens and the vast majority of that majority inhabits the middle class. Thanks to Obama and the Democrats, “white flight” is back in style again..
According to the article, “AP-GfK Poll: Working-class whites shun Dems” (ap news my way dot com) we read that, “working-class whites are flocking to Republicans..” The article identified this group as “long wary of Democrats..” If they were “long wary” why did they fall for the flotsam and jetsam of the Obama shampaign of 2008? Maybe because an imbecilic UNION told them to? It takes quite a lot to awaken such marinated lemmings and Obama and the Democrats have miraculously done so..
“Whites without a four year degree (AKA: those unencumbered by the leftist indoctrination lovingly provided by the universities..) prefer GOP candidates by twice the margin of the last two elections, a 22 percent gap..” This “group” makes up a large percentage of the blue collar “middle class”. This “group” understands that they are all just one more “stimulus” away from being part of the nearly forty-two MILLION recipients of food stamps thanks to the “cures” prescribed by Obama and the Democrats.. This “group” is finally starting to understand just how much THEY will be paying for the Democrat’s devious destructiveness..
If the LOWEST class were on the ball, they too would be miffed at the “Great Welfarian” and his Depression. Here are just two examples as to why they should be. First, Obama RAISED the basic tax rate paid by the lowest class from ten percent to fifteen percent. Secondly, the MANDATED Obama “health scare” insurance payments made by the employers of those who work within the lowest class will be added to those employees W-2 forms as INCOME. Welcome to the “middle class”, oh ye of the paper hat at the drive though window.. And by the way, start paying your totalitarian tithes because the “evil rich corporation” that you work for doesn’t have to.. (Note the “foreshadowing” in that sentence..)
One of the “Big Lies” perpetrated by Obama and his Collectivist Crew is the myth that they are out there working for the “little guy”. They verbally bash the “rich” yet the “rich” who nuzzle the nefarious nincompoop are given a free pass. As “crass separatists”, this ruse is important to the Democrats so that they can fool the middle class who are actually the TARGETS of the Obama tax grab.
Another Obama example, did you know that “rich” corporations like Mc Donald’s and several teachers UNIONS have been given “waivers” from having to pay into the Obama Health Scare? There is no such WAIVER for the middle class.. As a matter of fact the Obama tax hikes, coming soon to a paycheck near you, eliminate a number of deductions including those for families who have “special needs” children. Remember, the Democrats and Obama are helping the “little guy”..
Those who are now flying the Obama coop are “uneasy with the young president’s activist governing.. Their wariness is reinforced by a prolonged economic funk that has disproportionately hurt the middle class..” Politics is a game of “results” especially when you assumed office based on the lofty claims of being able to cure that which you and your collectivist contemporaries have personally created. Obama’s “results”? In a nutshell, Carter looks like a supply-sider and Carter finally has someone to look down upon when it comes to the pecking order of the worst presidents of all time..
The “middle class” has been targeted in both directions by Obama and the Democrats. They have intentionally destroyed the jobs around the middle class and the Democrats have “bailed out” their banking and finance buddies right from the wallets of the middle class.. The middle class has always had to “reward” the Democrat’s voter base, the lowest class, but under Obama the “rich” who supported Obama have been “rewarded” by the middle class as well.. This is being done in order to try to create the largest group of Americans EVER who have no choice but to turn to the pathetic progressive government for their sustenance.. Its just a bit more of that “historic change” that Obama promised..
As well, Obama is taking a page from the Clinton workbook as he is playing funny with the numbers when it comes to who the “rich” exactly are.. Another Obama example, the AMT (Alternative Minimum Tax) now effects millions of middle class families, middle class families that this TAX was NEVER intended to penalize..
“Over half say he (Obama) doesn’t understand ordinary American’s problems..” On the contrary, he doesn’t understand their RESPONSE to their problems, problems that he and the Democrats have intentionally created for them. He though that the middle class would willingly become part of the hand out machine that Democratic politics has become over the last fifty years. He truly “understands” the problems of the middle class because he is responsible for them.. By the way, don’t “ordinary Americans” have guys like Tony Rezko landing them prime multi million-dollar real estate deals for them? Don’t “ordinary Americans” take vacations every twelve days paid for by someone else? Don’t “ordinary Americans” have a staff of over twenty people who wait on their wife hand and foot?
“Real” Americans have had it with Obama and even if the Democrats resort to their cowardly cries of “racism” directed at those who have soured on the Marxist mead offered up by Obama, their days are numbered and they know it. “The country hasn’t come up the way it should have under Obama”.. So says a reformed Kool Aid drinker and bus driver Barbara Schwickrath who certainly sounds as though she has an axe or three to grind.. They were “promised” the world, they were foolish enough to believe it and now they are embarrassed about being put into short pants.. Lawrence Ramsey said it best, “Democrats are more apt to mess with the middle class and take our money..” Obama’s victims have had an “awakening” from the catatonic state of November 2008..
The Democrats are furiously pumping the bellows trying to ignite the embers of a fire long since extinguished.. Democratic “strategist” Dave Beattie claims that this should be a “choice between two candidates, not a referendum on do you like where things are or not, because no one like where things are..” Unbelievable.. Just who is responsible for “where things are”? Since “no one likes where things are”, shouldn’t we then throw out those who are RESPONSIBLE for “where things are”?
Targeting the middle class was a calculated risk that was supposed to have been overcome merely by the dynamic personality of Obama powered by his telepromters.. Targeting the middle class is the foundation of socialism, thus its appeal to the Obama caliphate. Now the middle class is targeting the Democrats. With all of that said, we are truly holding out “hope” for “change” in November..
