Today GOP Executive Grand Poobah took to the airwaves to deride Obama’s war on the middle class. Using data from a just released study done by liberal think tank (stop laughing) the Russell Sage Foundation, Rinse Penis pointed to figures showing that 75% of Americans are now poorer that they were in the worst years of the Bush Administration. In 2003, median household net worth was $25,000 dollars higher than it is today. Pounding his fist upon the podium for emphasis, Mr. Penis said, “Under this administration the middle class has been hammered.”
OK, that’s not true. It would be nice if it were true, but that’s just a fantasy. The study is true, but the response from The Stupid Party is made uo by me. The men running the GOP are too timid and stupid to play on the middle-class fears that their way of life is under assault from their own government.Plus, who names their child Reince? What kind of name is that?
Instead, they will allow a plutocrat like Fake Indian get away with class warfare rhetoric and pain the GOP as the party of billionaires. If Lee Atwater were alive, he’d have a press conference every day bashing the Democrats for their war on the middle, forcing the press to do their damn job even if they hated it.
Here’s the summary:
In fairness, housing prices have not recovered, despite the trillions pumped in from the Fed. On the other hand, the hidden inflation due to that pump should have lifted all boats. Anyone who buys things like food, utilities, gas and clothing know that things are much more expensive now than a decade ago. That shows up in this data too. Still, no matter how you want to put your finger on the scale, the facts are as presented. The middle and lower class have taken in the pooper under this president.
