President Barack Obama's 2012 re-election campaign will be the first in modern political history to abandon white working-class voters, strategists claim.
For decades, Democrats have been losing more and more blue collar whites. Their alienation helped lead to the massive Republican wave in 2010, when the GOP wooed 30 percent more of them than the Democrats could.
Democratic strategists say President Obama is focusing his attention, instead, on poor black and Hispanic voters and educated white professionals.
In other words, Obama is focusing on the Occupytards who think they are better than you because they went to college and studied art therapy and you didn't; as well as those who are addicted to the government drug of entitlements and set asides.
Thomas Edsall wrote the same thing in the NY Times a few weeks back:
'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... and a second, substantial constituency of lower-income voters who are disproportionately African-American and Hispanic,' longtime political reporter Thomas B. Edsall wrote in an opinion piece in the New York Times.
'The 2012 approach treats white voters without college degrees as an unattainable cohort,' he writes later.
So, white union workers, screw you! sez Obama. He is going after people who are taking your jobs. This guy wants to balkanize us so he can divide us, then we can't stand together to stop him from destroying our country.
