    Democrats love the poor and they've promised they won't rest until they've turned every American into one

    They'd be out on their ear if they didn't have ways to make people poor--raising the income level over what they were, etc.

    You're right. They have to have lots and lots of poverty to stay strong. :rolleyes:

    I envy the "poor" people who have moved into my community in the past two years. Instead of warehousing them in the projects like my dad grew up in, the government now puts them up in foreclosed houses. While I stay busy maintaining my four income sources, they get to lounge at the pool waiting for my tax dollars to show up in their mailbox and EBT card. Such is life in Obamaville.

    In a few years the neighbors of such poor people might count themselves lucky. We haven't yet gotten to the point where the poor are physically moved into the homes of the "rich" who are judged to have houses too big for them. We don't yet have housing fairness to that extent.

    I rarely agree with politicians, but he called that one right. Writing sob stories is just a distraction from the real issues in this campaign.

    Sob stories about individual stories have a rather strange effect. Once you see the crippled girl sharing her popcorn with stray dogs, then the plight of the ordinary poor have little impact. If you were REALLY poor, all you would have with popcorn and if there was a generous single cell in your body you would share that with a stray dog.

    Novde didn't say it. It's the tax exempt left wing propaganda network, Media Matters, cherry picked sentence handed over to a radical leftie writer from Huffington for her interpretation based on what the left thought they wanted to hear. No hum.
