    It seems that way.

    The attacks on Unions.

    The attacks on:
    Nurses
    Teachers
    Police
    Firefighters
    Education
    the Unemployed
    Medicare
    Social Security

    Have Republicans finally decided that doing anything to support the Middle Class is "so over"?

    We know what they think of the poor. Is that how they now feel about the Middle Class? Are they even going to bother running "for the Middle Class" or will it all be about the "job creators" who have money, but aren't creating jobs? Their only policy seems to be "hoping the job creators make jobs". What happens if they don't want to? Just keep throwing money at them?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Notice you can't disagree with anything? A "pathetic partisan hack" is someone who lies when everyone knows the truth.

    For instance, if you said, "Obama took a trip costing 200 million dollars a day", then you would, for sure, be a partisan hack". It's not even possible to take a trip that expensive.

    Note none of your attacks were specific at all as the sort of response you asked for. They were sweeping demagoguery and every one was begging the question. Why give a specific response to that? Republicans are going after all those people because they aren't redistributing money and power to them beyond their inherent market power?

    You showed what I said, you are a pathetic partisan hack.

    You want a specific point on this one, you got it. Democrats are trying to raise taxes in the middle of a deep recession. They have no compassion at all for the plight of the American people. Republicans are kissing the middle class on the lips compared to your hate filled self centered power grubbing Democratic party. Clean your own house before you point fingers, pathetic partisan politicial hack.

    Let's see...the rich make up, what, 1% or so? Least ways that's what the class warriors are always screeching about.

    The GOP has around 55 million members. Obviously, the bulk of the GOP IS middle class.

    Once again, dean's numbers just don't add up. But he thinks math is subject to ideology. Too bad math doesn't agree.

    Why do you always try to divide Americans into classes? Is my brother any less my brother because he is rich, poor, or in between? Why should I be angry at my brethren because of their wealth and lack thereof?

    The Principles of good government are the same today as they were when this nation was founded. The laws of nature and nature's God are the same as well. Human nature is the same.

    I would encourage you to stop outsourcing your responsibilities to the Federal Government. In fact, stop outsourcing them to any government. Start taking your responsibilities seriously and acting according to your means with your time and money. And stop trying to steal the money of others.
