    Republicans hate the Middle Class and love the Middle Class - it is a classic example of ambivalence.

    Republicans know Middle Class Americans are workers whose wealth is a product of their personal toil, something Republicans admire. They also know Middle Class Americans pay taxes and demand results from pols they support by their votes. This they hate, for pols in general, and Republican pols in particular, love the wealthy and powerful (for in them they see their personal future) and it pisses them off to be held accountable by the hoi polloi, Middle Cloass voters.

    Held accountable they will be come Novemeber 2012; it does not excape those of us in the middle class that the Republcian Party represents only the very wealthy and patronize all other Americans.

    More generalizations. More scare tactics and class warfare.

    Not likely. It will need to get much worse before the middle class turns its back on the Republicans. Conservatives are still winning the battle for the middle class, but I do think that will change in the next ten years.

    The right doesn’t ‘hate’ the middle class per se, but they see its erosion as a natural consequence in the context of Social Darwinism. And needless to say, there’ll be no help from the government as that would conflict with conservative dogma: the strong survive, the weak perish.

    This is essentially true, as the wealthy represent a de facto ‘ruling class,’ a Patrician order that merits government benevolence by virtue of their success, they are ‘deserving.’

    Don't worry. He'll be back to defend his steaming pile after it festers for a bit. I think I've even pos repped him for his amazing consistency in inaccuracies.

    if it didn't happen during the 90's what makes you think it will happen now...and take a hint, a huge portion of the nanny state class is buttressed by that very middle class despite the dems attempts to make them part of the nanny class....

    and at the end of the day the whole issue is, the nanny state IS broke and will go belly up despite any increase in the debt ceiling IF we don't change course.....
