    become this group that has contempt for people who work?

    I don't remember them being like that. I remember them as the smart/money guys... the ones who kept the 'good-hearted' dems in check and ended up with a balance between the heart and the pocketbook.

    I'm flabbergasted that a political candidate can pretend that anyone who doesn't vote for him doesn't pay taxes.

    I know i pay a way greater percentage of my income in taxes than mittens.


    funny that.

    An excellent question.

    My late father, the Sheet metal Union guy, was a staunch supporter of Nixon and Eisenhower. Even after Nixon resigned, he said, "Nixon didn't do anything but get caught doing what they all did."

    Because Nixon and Eisenhower were friends to working people, at the end of the day. The sought union support, they stuck up for union things. OSHA, probably the best friend working folks have had, was Nixon's idea.

    So where did it all go wrong?

    As far as I can tell the GOP started on the path that led them to this point shortly after 9/11.

    It started with "you are with us or you are with the terrorists".

    does it wreck the flow of all the righwingnut circle jerks on this board?

    get over it.

    or explain why what your candidate said isn't contemptuous.
