In 1992, the Clinton campaign war room featured the mantra: "It's The Economy, Stupid!"
In 2016, the next Clinton campaign war room, no doubt, will have a mantra: "It's The Middle Class, Stupid!"
GOP presidential candidate wannabee Jeb Bush has put this little nugget into play himself this week as being central to his candidacy should he run.
The other GOP bozos in the 2016 presidential sweepstakes might very well adopt this rallying cry as the heart and soul of their respective campaigns as well. But they offer only an echo, not a real choice.
Irregardless, the middle class has been pared back substantially over the years by Reaganomics and is on its heels, economically. It constitutes a significantly smaller slice of the electorate than it did in the 1960's.
The lower class has grown substantially since that time, in large part thanks to misguided GOP economic policies.
Hillary Clinton should recognize this central tenant of our American political dynamic and throw caution to the wind in defense of the middle class if she wants to run any semblance of a genuine presidential campaign in 2016.
You simply can't have a great country without a strong and thriving middle class.
It's disengenuous for the GOP to suddenly jump on this band wagon at this stage of the game. Conversely, it is an absolute Christmas gift for any Democratic presidential candidate given the brutal assault on the middle class, particularly since the ascendancy to the presidency by George "W" in 2001.
It's definitely Hillary's to lose. If she's too cautious or tentative then all bets are off.
Jeb Bush Is Definitely Not Middle Class Material & Neither R His GOP Cohorts.
So Hillary, it's best that if you are going to RUN, then you actually RUN & not "WALK" your way through the process!
The Demorcratic Party is one that is suppose to be the champion of the middle class. During the President's State of the Union address, he makes another socialist pitch to "make it fair" for the middle class by raising taxes on the top 1%. He always received a standing ovation for these comments. The American people doesn't undestand that wealth distribution is the worst thing that can ever be proposed. Let me paint a simple picture...A student works hard in school to get an A in a class. The teacher of that class decides to take points away from that student to give to another. Not enough to bring their grade down to a B but enough to bring another student's F up to a D. What will be the A student's motivation to keep working hard to maintain their A if points are constantly being taking from them to give to another student who doesn't put in the time and effort? When you look back at any policy that promotes "making things fair" you would think things would be better for the same group of people who those policies are suppose to help. When you look at articles all over the internet, looking at the polls, and watch the news, the middle class is screaming that they don't feel as if they are doing better in an economy where the stock market is roaring or an economy that "boast" an unemployment rate of less than 6%. The Democrats does not understand the pains of the middle class as they want you to believe.

Today's show including important essays by Leslie Sanchez, Alex Gonzalez and Alex Nowrasteh. Each has in depth analysis of the immigration debate and the political motivations behind it. Alex Gonzalez effectively defeats the "Secure the Border First with a fence!" policy of the anti-immigration bigots. Then Leslie Sanchez opines about the motivation behind Obama's executive action to reduce the horrendous hardships he had already cost many millions of Latinos in America. Why would he do that? Sanchez suspects it may be because some GOP types like Greg Abbott in Texas did rather well among Latinos in heavily Latino districts. Thus, her conclusion is that Obama and the Democrats may be in trouble with Latinos. Latinos Ready To Vote. I have my doubts about that but it is true that it appears some few Republicans did fairly well among some Latino sectors, most likely because the Democrat candidate was so liberal and radical that traditionally Democrat voting Latinos simply stayed home. Later, author David Whitehead Jr. called in to discuss Hispanic outreach among Republicans and he admits the existence of anti-Latino bias among Tea party types. I discuss how the evil Tanton Network, a radical environmentalist and white supremacist organization has injected their anti-immigration policies into the Republican Party via the Tea Parties. We didn't get to discuss the changes in policy concerning Cuba.
