Presidential Elections 2012 - #3451 - New York Times: Democrats Not Interested in Voters Who Work, Target Losers Instead - Rush Limbaugh (2) The Future of the Obama Coalition - NY Times (3) Barack Obama, Ed Schultz, Make GQ's least Influential People Alive' List - The Blaze

RUSH: There is a fascinating story in the New York Times by Thomas Edsall: "The Future of the Obama Coalition." Let me read this first paragraph to you. "The Future of the Obama Coalition -- For decades, Democrats have suffered continuous and increasingly severe losses among white voters. But preparations by Democratic operatives for the 2012 election make it clear for the first time that the party will explicitly abandon the white working class." The Democrat Party is just abandoning white working class voters. The Democrat Party is punting. The Democrat Party is saying, "Sayonara, we don't care." They are going after the welfare state full-fledged. They are going after the entitlement mentality people in this country full-fledged. They're not making any pretenses. Here's a pull quote. "A top priority of the less affluent wing of today’s left alliance is the strengthening of the safety net, including health care, food stamps, infant nutrition and unemployment compensation. These voters generally take the brunt of recessions and are most in need of government assistance to survive. According to recent data from the Department of Agriculture, 45.8 million people, nearly 15 percent of the population, depend on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program to meet their needs for food." And yet these same people's kids are fed three meals a day at school.

"All pretense of trying to win a majority of the white working class has been effectively jettisoned in favor of cementing a center-left coalition made up, on the one hand, of voters who have gotten ahead on the basis of educational attainment -- professors, artists, designers, editors, human resources managers, lawyers, librarians, social workers, teachers and therapists -- and a second, substantial constituency of lower-income voters who are disproportionately African-American and Hispanic." So the Democrat Party, according to the Obama coalition, according to the New York Times, is going after the entitlement class, the welfare dependent class and the elite in academia, art, human resource management, lawyers, librarians, and social workers and so forth. What a coalition, the backbone of America. And that's who they're going after. They're ceding it, c-e-d-i-n-g. They are ceding working class voters. They've already ceded Republican voters. They have ceded conservative voters.  Read more........

Barack Obama, Ed Schultz, Make GQ's Least Influential People Alive' List - The Blaze - While magazines across the country offer readers their pick of the world’s “most influential people,” this year, GQ magazine is bringing you the “The 25 Least Influential People Alive” — and on the list are MSNBC host Ed Schultz, and, of all people, President Barack Obama. This is the same magazine that oddly, named Obama “Leader of the Year“ in 2009 and ”Man of the Year“ in 2008 while calling Sarah Palin ”dangerous“ and ”poisonous.”  But now, GQ has weighed the data and places Obama as the 25th least influential person in the world. Joining the president and Schultz are Daily Beast and Newsweek editor Tina Brown, along with Hosni Mubarak, Hank Williams Jr. and John Boehner, who came in at number 24.  Read more.......
