If you go back as far as the works of Marx & Lenin, they make it plain that the middle class is their enemy.

Sheepdog,

That the right keeps repeating the charge doesn't make it true. And what is even more revealing is the fact that Republicans are willing to believe ANYTHING said about Obama as long as it is consistent with their preconceived notion that he is evil.

The right is willing to peddle nonsense about Obama because they know conservatives see Obama in terms of otherness: unfamiliar and un-American, just a communist, muslim extremist attempting to bring down the country because he secretly hates it (which makes absolutely zero sense when you take into account that this is the very country that elected him President...twice).

Clint Eastwood provided the perfect metaphor for conservative thinking. Straw man Obama.

This is why Republicans don't make an ounce of sense. No rank-and-file Democrat has ever read the works of Lenin, and have a very limited knowledge of Marx (basically restricted to the phrase, "to each according to his need, from each according to his ability"). These two aren't the driving force behind American thinking on the left. So revealing some "hidden" enemy in their works does little to reveal the secret thinking of the left or any progressive leaders.

Think about it, do you honestly think that Obama is trying to bring the country down around our ears? The guy has to be President for four more years after this...

I apologize to America's young people, whose dashed dreams and dim employment prospects I had laughed at, believing these to be a direct result of their voting for Obama.

On closer examination, it turns out that young voters, aged 18-29, overwhelmingly supported Romney. But only the white ones.

According to Pew Research, 54 percent of white voters under 30 voted for Romney and only 41 percent for Obama. That's the same percentage Reagan got from the entire white population in 1980. Even the Lena Dunham demographic -- white women under 30 -- slightly favored Romney.
