Or was it the reception that Michelle received form NASCAR fans last week?
Either way, the Obama campaign is making it known that they have absolutely no intention of trying to court the American white working class in 2012. The bible belt God and gun loving folks in the south and midwest and sprinkled all across this land in fly over country don't matter to the Obama team now (as if they ever did).
Apparently the Obama campaign has determined that having sufficiently isolating the classes via their class warfare policies, this is simply one large segment of the population that is not worthy of Obama's pursuit in 2012. Is it any wonder? These are the same people that this administration has abandoned on jobs for the last three years and even the unions can clearly see that now.
Did someone say racist?
I wonder.....what would the media reaction be if a republican campaign went public with their intent to completely bypass the black working class in Ameirca, or blacks in general. I think we all know the answer to that.
For decades, Democrats have suffered continuous and increasingly severe losses among white voters. But preparations by Democratic operatives for the 2012 election make it clear for the first time that the party will explicitly abandon the white working class.
All pretence 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 — professors, artists, designers, editors, human resources managers, lawyers, librarians, social workers, teachers and therapists — and a second, substantial constituency of lower-income voters who are disproportionately African-American and Hispanic.
