Based on what you've shared about yourself you fit into the broke azz baby boomer mold__why are you surprized that there are others who've been just as careless as you have?

Did you respond to the 16.5 million in the middle class suburbs who are now below the poverty line? When there were none in 2000?
Any comments on the important issues?
Thanks for pointing out just what a mess you idiots left after eight years of stupid. We are coming out but it will take a very long time to straighten out the many messes your inept bunglers left behind.

Your post indicates that you're totally lost on this subject too.

A tiny little request. Look up slavery in the South. And research the party responsible for voting down all civil rights legislation in the south.
But just PLEASE stop deflecting your ignorance on the wrong people.
If you want to equate racism with traditional values, you first have to defend the Southern Democratic bloc's "traditional values" as late as 1964 voting against the Civil Rights Act.
Republicans have always welcomed blacks into their party, every black was a Republican until the Great Depression when a Democratic president offered them another kind of government plantation, and it was the Republican Party who voted former slaves into office right after the Civil War. The first black democrat wasn't elected until the late 1930s.
The welcome mat is still in front of the Republican tent. We can't force them into it. Not when the Democrats have enslaved them to dependency and entitlements and welfare and denying them school choice for a better education.
It's 2014. Quit going back more than a century, you nitwit.

The world has changed. Democrats now support equal rights for all, only Repugnetards try to write laws to restrict individual freedoms.

Notice how many are being struck down by the courts?? In every State in the Union??

When members of your party speak stupidly of a Democrat "War on Whites", that's all the proof needed.

Thwe whole 'enslavement to dependency' is such a wicked lie that you racists love to use.

Fact is, blacks and hispanics are smart enough to know that most Repugnetards hate them and all they stand for.

Most of the comments from your ilk on this thread are proof of this.

Let's be clear. Your religion and 'traditional values' are nothing but hate and bigotry towards others.

You can hide behind religion, but you're nothing but a hateful bigot.

FACT: Impoverished cities that have been under democrat control for decades are ignored by the lame stream media.
Think that would be the case had the decades of control and corruption been republican?
We both know that answer.
Propagandists exposing intentional wrongdoing and corruption in their own party? Hell no!

Propagandists exposing unintentional wrongdoing by the opposition? Hell yes!

It's to keep the tools happy and singing the same note over and over again.

The propagandist media is the danger. They brainwash the people to put into power their fellow control freaks because the propagandists have a control issue as well.

Which is why we're in deep doo-doo if the masses don't start wising up.

Hate to break it to you, but the housing bubble burst in 2007-2008. The Democrats were as guilty as some Republicans, even more so, for letting the housing market go unchecked despite warnings by both Bush and Bernanke.

The economy wasn't in the shape it's in now until around 2007 when the house of cards came crashing down. Unemployment and the GDP were doing quite well until then.

And now it's been six years for the new leadership to turn things around. It shouldn't take six years to turn anything around.

The economy has always improved within two years after any major recession under other president and their leadership.

This president doesn't want things to improve. But you still don't get that. The government can't control every aspect of our lives if things improved. But you still don't get that either.

Please please please educate yourself about John Tiffany of Temecula California who owns the Barnes Book Review which caters to the ultra conservative nut job set with nonsense such as that supposedly written by one Robert M Groomes.on the topic of blacks owned slaves too.

You, Flack and many of the other scumbag teabags on here have posted that puke while skirting where it came from.

It came from the TBR Book Club www.barnesreview.org

You'll find a few of your other revelations at that site too.

Sorry, you lose...again.

"In those neighborhoods, 35% of residents are now considered to be below the poverty line, defined as a family of four making $23,492 or less in 2012."

It's about income and the decline in earnings in the middle class.

"Much of the outflow of population from urban cores to suburbs has historically been middle- and upper-income. That is less true now.”

http://news.msn.com/us/the-rise-of-suburban-p...

Obama should have spent more time focusing on turning this around than his failed legacy of Obamacare.

Think how much time was wasted on this - and him - and a decline in full-time jobs to part-time because of it is causing even more distress among the middle class.

It's about the economy, stupid.(Think whoever said that was talking about you.)

Not about Obama's self-imposed legacy that has failed miserably.

Do you have any values? I mean other than big government taking care of you from cradle to grave?

Whose money are you willing to steal if that is, in fact, what you value?

Because that's not a value.

Maybe you should just tell me your values. I'd be interested. Really.

Clinton's six-year Republican-controlled Congress did a fine job you mean. Clinton was just smart to move to center and go along with them. Which he gets credit for doing.

Remember Clinton's State of the Union address when he declared, "The era of big government is over!"

Sounds pretty conservative to me.

Obama implies in every State of the Union address, "The era of big government hasn't even begun yet...but just wait until I start dictating with my pen and cellphone...you fools won't even know what happened."

Sounds pretty radical to me.

Carol again provers just how GD stupid she is. Racism in the South existed in both parties & she knows it. So Carol, are you just a liar? Or do you actually think you are fooling anyone

In the 1964 Civil Right Act, Democrats and Republicans in the South voted against it and Democrats & Republicans outside the South voted for it,.
