    Good read

    http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/political-animal-a/2015_06/reaching_out_to_white_working055981.php

    While Greenberg certainly is right that working people often feel that elected leaders do not prioritize their needs, our experience is that white, working-class Americans are not anti-government. Rather, they are dispirited and disengaged, and have lost belief in their own collective power. Once upon a time unions served as a credible source of information on economic issues for such voters, yet now Fox News and talk radio’s call for small government and individual responsibility fills that void.

        They feel disengaged and decide that not voting is a viable alternative? makes no effing sense to me.

    • June 9, 2015 at 11:29 am

      what fills the void is the ginning up of white privilege and racism…and anti immigrant sentiment….which is why the DEMs decided to use a strategy of running from the successful policies of this President…rather than deal with these issues and show how the GOP and the folks they represent do not represent the interests of white workers…

      The white working class has been duped by the 1%ers since the founding of this country. By stroking the White working class’ ego by touting White supremacy/Black inferiority and exploiting racial insecurity and guilt, the 1%ers have convinced a majority of white folks to vote against their own interests just to make sure Black folks suffer. So long as poverty is racialized little will be done to help the poor, White or Black. This is the way the 1%ers want it. Class (absent race) is a taboo topic in this country. The 1%er’s worst fear is for White folks to wake up from their collective racist stupor and realize who their real enemy is, who is really responsible for falling wages and lack of upward mobility.

          Unfortunately the poor whites don’t care and will vote for them even if they are thrown out into the streets as long as the minorities are also thrown out onto the streets. My last cat sitter is white, poor, and a republican. She does not like PBO and watches Fox News. When I told her that she did not have to pay or be put in debt (although she has no money except SS) because Gov. Brown accepted the ACA (Obamacare) and that her SS part B is covered by Medicare. When she had emergency surgery last year at one of the best hospitals on this side of town she complained because they asked too many questions (they signed her up for Medicare part B so they could get reimbursed AFTER her surgery. She was in the hospital for a week. Her bill would have been well over $100K). She complained that Obamacare is “socialism” and he (PBO) is spreading “socialism”. I asked her what did she think Social Security & Section 8 was? All she could say is she NEEDED it but if she were rich she would prefer that instead. I no longer have her take care of cats. I stopped having anything to do with her so she left me a voice message saying she guess she offended me but that is how she feels. I called her back and left her a message that yes she offends me that she could be so gullible and vote against her OWN best interest for a party that is for rich people which she is not. That one day I want ALL my Social Security and safe guards like Medicare because I will be old and need it. My mother also needs it as long as she lives. That when they cut her Section 8 she complained how “They” just don’t care about poor elderly people. I told her it’s the people she votes for and their policies that CUT her Section 8 and she should vote every Democrat into office as long as she living unless she wins the lottery then she can vote against poor elderly people too.

            I know how you feel as I run into those people that do not even think about voting forthose who serve their interests best and even brag about their GOP support, yet complain all the time when their benefits are cut. You cannot reason with them. It is as if their brain is disconnected.

    David Brooks: “President Obama Has Run An Amazingly Scandal-Free Administration”; “He’s Chosen People Who’ve Been Scandal-Free”

    “President Obama has run an amazingly scandal-free administration, not only he himself, but the people around him. He’s chosen people who have been pretty scandal-free,” conservative New York Times opinion writer David Brooks said Friday on PBS’ NewsHour.

    Brooks was discussing the Dennis Hastert scandal with liberal sparring partner Matt Shields at the time.

    “David makes a good point,” Shields said. “And I agree with him on this administration in particular
