    The economy is really bad for the middle class these days. The middle class has suffered the brunt of job loss and foreclosure. The vast majority of the foreclosure properties I see are between $100,000 and $250,000.

    Saying that e economy is bad for the poor is ignoring a lot of problems in other strata.

    What's the point here Ref? We know it is bad for all but a few. glynch was talking about people who are barely able to rent in the best of times. He didn't say that the middle class had it great... he questioned the perceptions of people who were comfortable and listened to Fox all the time. I don't think glynch was ignoring other strata.

    You know, this entire article is basically destroyed in the comments below it. I dunno why you'd bother reposting this nonsense.

    As for the 60% figure being quoted.

    This is probably not the place for you to be soliciting clients

    glynch, in his typical glynchness, made specific reference to our comfortable middle class views. You see, glynch apparently has a monopoly on understanding the poor. He doesn't. A good many people that I represented were conservative and watching Fox up until the point that their home was foreclosed on. As usual, glynch paints with an absurdly broad brush.

    Perhaps glynch should brush up on the writings of Tytler about what happens to a democracy when the people realize they can vote themselves money out of the public treasury.

    Glynch is wrogn on this one, a lot of the fox news/talk radio right wing hard core is hardly comfortable, they're basically slipping behind and so they take out their aggression on the next lowest folks on the ladder (poor & minorities).

    Actually I was thinking more about posters like Basso the original poster of the theory that 40% of Milwaukee blacks are phantom voters ginned up by the leftist Dems.

    I do agree how many of the humble Fox viewers are urged to take out their aggression on folks lower on the ladder.
