HOWLER OF THE DAY: The GOP talking point in response to the President is to whine: "CLASS WARFARE!" So ... What's your point, wingnuts? Republicans have been waging class warfare against the middle class for the last 30 years. What do you call the statistics cited by the President:
In the last decade, the average income of the bottom 90 percent of all working Americans actually declined. Meanwhile, the top 1 percent saw their income rise by an average of more than a quarter of a million dollars each. That's who needs to pay less taxes?What do you call it: The ruling class idea of altruism? Tax cuts for jobs in China while 90 percent of the American people get screwed? In truth, if the President succeeds in triangulating a "grand compromise" that is acceptable to liberals and progressives, he will have averted genuine class warfare. Les Misérables ain't just a musical, y'know ...
They want to give people like me a $200,000 tax cut that's paid for by asking 33 seniors each to pay $6,000 more in health costs. That's not right. And it's not going to happen as long as I'm President. (Applause.)
Question: Why did Chris Matthews have Rep. Marsha Blackburn on his program? The crapaganda coming out of that woman's mouth was unbelievable; worse still, Matthews let her speak without ONCE challenging BULLSHIT like more "options" for seniors. THESE PEOPLE ARE LIARS! Haven't you figured that out, Chris? They're just blowing smoke, and LYING.
