Bloviating Zeppelin: Party of the Poor?

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Party of the Poor?

Everyone knows that, historically, the Demorats are the representatives of the Poor, the downtrodden, the needy -- because the Demorats themselves can empathize, right? Conversely, the Republicans are the party of the dirty, the corrupt, the fat, the drooling, rich Fat Cats, right?

Democrats like to define themselves as the party of poor and middle-income Americans, but a new study says they now represent the majority of the nation's wealthiest congressional districts.

In a state-by-state, district-by-district comparison of wealth concentrations based on Internal Revenue Service income data, Michael Franc, vice president of government relations at the Heritage Foundation, found that the majority of the nation's wealthiest congressional jurisdictions were represented by Democrats.




Democrats now control the majority of the nation's wealthiest congressional jurisdictions. More than half of the wealthiest households are concentrated in the 18 states where Democrats control both Senate seats.

This new political demography holds true in the House of Representatives, where the leadership of each party hails from different worlds. Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader of the House of Representatives, represents one of America's wealthiest regions. Her San Francisco district has more than 43,700 high-end households. Fewer than 7,000 households in the western Ohio district of House Republican leader John Boehner enjoy this level of affluence.


Ah yes, the Demorats: the "party of the poor."

Not.

But they say what the press wants to hear.

And moreover, the press believes it and reports it.

Dems are weakminded, they must be, look at what they have for leaders, and the MSM is just as weak, they promote it...

The Demorats, ably abetted by the MSM, are the OPPOSITE of what they are portrayed to be.

A vote for Hillary is a vote for political death by national suicide.

Geez....I just left a blog talking about this same topic; Michael Medved also devoted an hour to it, and I believe I saved an article from a week or two ago, regarding the same topic (I was going to blog it, but never got around to it).

I've always known this and it is so frustrating at the misconceptions that linger out there. This article put a smile on my face.

BZ,
There are a lot of misconceptions out there about Republicans and this sums it up.

There are also a lot of misconceptions about liberals, i.e. tolerant of others views, and as you stated so well in your post, 'the party that represents the poor'.. YEH RIGHT! As we all know they only tolerate views that they hold.
