    The largest block of voters is the one Republicans have worked to squeeze and tear down.

    Whether it's:

    Slashing funding for education.

    The apology to BP.

    Sending Middle Class kids off to wars.

    Helping the Chamber of Commerce send jobs to China.

    Wanting to get rid of the EPA (a few more birth defects are acceptable).

    Helping health care companies get as much as they can.

    Then there is the slap in the face:

    Wanting to help banks and insurance companies but not the car industry and all the millions of jobs connected with the car industry.

    Working to destroy the unions.

    Voter suppression.

    Holding millions of unemployed hostage to get tax cuts that benefit mostly the rich.

    Fighting tax cuts for the middle class.

    Refusing to invest in America but investing in Iraq.

    Being wrong about everything.

    Running on "jobs jobs jobs" and then passing abortion laws and making ads insulting to gays (see Rick Perry).

    So what exactly is the Republican strategy this time? The majority of Americans know they are on the side of the super wealthy and have no respect for the Middle Class. Voter suppression can only go so far.

    The Republican strategy is the same as it always is....to scare white suburban voters with a brown or black boogieman.

    From Reagan's "welfare queen" to Willie Horton to Saddam to Bin Laden to the Rev. Wright to mexican immigrants to Obama, the Republicans always try to find a brown or black man to scare white voters with.

    You progressives are flat out scared to death to run on your guy's record...aren't you? Three years of "Change You Can Believe In" (It's almost amusing now that so many normally intelligent people fell for that) has brought us to the here and now. By all means lets make this be about "class warfare" and not about the Obama record. Let's ignore the fact that Obama took more in corporate donations than McCain did in 2008. Let's see if we can get the American people to buy that the GOP hates all those EXCEPT the filthy rich. God forbid that we should simply look at Obama's lack of leadership and the sorry state of the economy. Let's pretend the first credit downgrade in the history of the nation never happened. Let's ignore how bad of a piece of legislation ObamaCare really is and how badly it's going to bury us in debt.

    Yes, lets talk about how the rich aren't paying their "fair share"!

    Everything, as is the standard M.O. with your dishonest partisan fucks, was deliberately and dishonestly misrepresented.

    Sorry to interrupt your circle-jerk.

    Obama is against middle class. He panders to the government dependents and the illegal aliens. He's helped kill small businesses and many are afraid to hire because of the Obamacare mess. We've had record unemployment and the lies told now about the rate being under 9% is bull. Who are they really fooling? Many of his supporters are on the doles and could care less about jobs. The same ones get assistance for housing, medical, school and food so inflation isn't a big concern to them. I think people will vote for him because they think he's going to give away more freebies.

    The Dems are the ones abandoning the white class working people. It's the welfare crowd and illegals who get the pretty speeches and more promises. The rest of us are more or less expected to keep working so they can take as much money as they want and we should shut up and take it. Maybe they feel they have created enough government dependents to carry them through the election. This will be a contest between the producers and the takers. I pray we still have more people willing to do for themselves than those who are greedy and just want to take what others have earned. Government is the greediest of all. Obama has many Wall Street execs appointed to high positions, along with a host of radicals who believe in government control over communication, population control and socialism. It's no wonder he can't run on his own record and has to vilify the right to make himself look better. Meanwhile, Carter is still doing snoopy dances because he officially is not the worst president anymore.

    Why do you think that they spend so much time and money to brainwash them with the Combination of "tough guy" assholes like Limbaugh and Savage, and the crazy religious Zealot types like Beck and Coulter?

    Because those types of personalities ring true with them. Folks on the left can see past that bullshit and view reality. Now... that being said... there are those types in the left wing media too. But, as the conservatives say....FOX is #1, MSNBC is way down there... Why? Because we aren't so taken with such things.... it's certainly not that there's that much LESS of us. Just that MOST of us on the left can problem solve better and not need someone to spoon feed us what our opinions ought to be.
