Back in the saddle...for the working man

Back from the Thanksgiving holiday, and I hope everyone had an opportunity to hear & enjoy the real story of Thanksgiving on Wednesday's Rush Limbaugh program (it's an annual favorite!).

Then I get back this morning to hear the rather joyous news that yet another Washington crook, and joke of a congress member, Barney Frank is retiring. I guess if we can't jail him, at least we'll be rid of him on Capitol Hill. Hip Hip Hooray!

But moving on to more analytical news, a story from the UK's Daily Mail illustrates the deceptively divisive re-election campaign tactics of our so-called post-racial president:

President Barack Obama's 2012 re-election campaign will be the first in modern political history to abandon white working-class voters, strategists claim.

For decades, Democrats have been losing more and more blue collar whites. Their alienation helped lead to the massive Republican wave in 2010, when the GOP wooed 30 percent more of them than the Democrats could.

Democratic strategists say President Obama is focusing his attention, instead, on poor black and Hispanic voters and educated white professionals.

For all the talk, year after year, of how Republicans are racist and the Democrats are the champions of minorities, we yet again get a glimpse of the same old Democrat segregrationists, dividing Americans up according to class and ethnicity. The strategy seems to dictate that working whites (or those working, period!) aren't buying it, so they'll focus on manipulating the poor minority masses as have been for decades, and likewise run with the white impressionable elitists, who have more education than experience & common sense...

The new coalition President Obama is putting together potentially relies less on middle Americans than either Sen Kerry or Vice President Al Gore in 2000.

Instead, as two Democratic strategists lay out, the president's 2012 re-election campaign will likely rely on winning over new 'young people, Hispanics, unmarried women and affluent suburbanites.'

Emphasis on 'new', pointing to all those susceptible minds that have accumulated over the past 3 years, with the hope and change of joblessness and dependency. However, considering the results of the 2010 mid-term elections, one would think there'd be a less impressionable sense than the hopelessness of '08.

Bigger government and less working class of any color or creed is what Obama has on the horizon for this country.  The working man must decide if that's the course he'd allow for his country's demise.  Liberty or servitude?  It's time to get back to work, because there's much ahead of us.
