With a friend like Obama, the Middle Class doesn’t need a Bogeyman

One thing I’ve come to realize is that any positive action for radical social change will have to be focused on the white middle class, for the simple reason that this is where the real power lies. Today, three fourths of our population is middle class, either through actual earning power or through value identification…
If we just give up and let the middle classes go to the likes of Agnew and Nixon by default, then you might as well call the whole ball game. But they’re still up for grabs — and we’re gonna grab ‘em.
—Saul Alinsky, 1972 Playboy interview
I’m about to rip the heart out of the entire 2012 president Barry Hussein Soetoro campaign for re-election. After this, there will be no justifiable reason to vote for him. He says the reason to election him is because he’ll fight for the middle class and Gov. Romney won’t. Now let’s look at the record!

First, let’s stipulate that all of president Barry Hussein Soetoro’s talk of the middle class is a tactic, which he learned from his political mentor Saul Alinsky. To Soetoro and Alinsky the middle class is an ends to a means. They are a political tool by which to gain and keep power. (read Rules for Radicals) The middle class has no other meaning, other than, one needs middle class support in order to make radical social change in America.

Hum, Hope and Change that is what the 2008 election was about, wasn’t it? And didn’t Soetoro appeal to the middle class in order to win in 2008. And isn’t he continuing the same tactics even now for 2012?

So in light of the $787million stimulus package, $700 billion dollars bank bailouts the $17 billion dollar auto industry bailout and the passage of his Big Phrama Obamacare law $1.76 trillion over 10 yrs all, which president Soetoro approved and supported just how has the middle class fared under his presidency? (see 1:34min video)

Posing to be a friend of the middle class, the president’s policies have actually decimated the middle class with the greatest lost in wealth for the middle class in recent history.

The recent economic crisis left the median American family in 2010 with no more wealth than in the early 1990s, erasing almost two decades of accumulated prosperity, the Federal Reserve said Monday.-- BINYAMIN APPELBAUM,NYTimes

StratMemo Middle Class Message 1-23-12

While president Barry Hussein Soetoro was, golfing more that Tiger Woods on the PGA circuit and Michele was jetting to luxurious international vacation to luxurious international vacation the middle class was taking it in the shorts in the president’s first term. But look It’s election season and all that you ‘all are supposed to remember, according to president Soetoro, is Mitt Romney is out of touch with the middle class.

Okay… but it is on the “president of the middle class” watch that the middle class as suffered greater than any time since the Great Depression. (article) In fact according to Roger Selbert one-third of the nation is either unemployed, underemployed, underwater on their one greatest asset (their homes),insolvent/bankrupt, on food stamps, unemployment or disability payments, or otherwise dependent on government. In Selbert’s words, “the diminishing of the middle class is daunting, but most disturbing is the diminishing of its prospects.” (see story)

Families’ income also continued to decline, a trend that predated the crisis but accelerated over the same period. Median family income fell to $45,800 in 2010 from $49,600 in 2007. All figures were adjusted for inflation.
“It fills in details to a picture that we already knew was quite ugly, and these details very much underscore that,” said Jared Bernstein, an economist at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities who served as an adviser to Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. “It makes clear how devastating this has been for the middle class.”-- BINYAMIN APPELBAUM,NYTimes

It doesn’t matter that Soetoro is doing a lousy job we all are supposed to be afraid of Romney. Democrats love to trout out that old saw that Republicans are the KKK or the Devil or worst yet ghosts. To which Democrats’ eyes are supposed to bugle out of their heads, their bodies are supposed to shake contort uncontrollably and they are supposed to turn as white as snow with fear. Republicans are the Bogeyman, Mitt Romney is to be feared. Don't vote for him, do listen to him and don’t look at him.

How crazy has the president gotten? This isn’t 2008 when he didn’t have a record and he could just say anything and the bobble headed Obamabots would nod in unison and say in one voice, “It’s Bush’s fault!”

The fact is the last four years are Soetoro’s policies, his ideas and his administration. The failure of the economy is not Romney’s fault or Bush’s fault, the failure of the middle class is Barry’s fault.

He used the middle class to get what he wanted, the presidency, without a flipping idea of what to do with it once he got it. Hillary warn us and so did Biden but we didn’t listen. We were so mesmerized by an “articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy” that we didn’t care that he didn’t know what he was doing. We only cared that he could wax eloquent in front of a teleprompter.

Now he’s asking for a do over, four more years to fix what he messed up. Yet I seem to remember in 2010 the president said, "we can't have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back." (source)

So wait, the president and Democrats were driving this economy from 2009 to 2012 with the middle class in mind (yeah right) and he told Republicans to get it the back and let he and Democrats put their policies in place. Oh so the last four years isn’t Bush’s fault after all.

According to the president he and Democrats have taken the middle class on a ride and guess what, the middle class is worse off than at any other time in the recent past.

That is why I say, "With a friend like president Soetoro, the middle class doesn’t need to be afraid of a bogeyman" or Gov. Romney for that matter because they have Barry and his anti-middle class record over the last four years! Middle class be afraid be very afraid!
