It's interesting how the Socialist Dems proclaim to fight for the middle class -- while their ruinous economic policies work to destroy it. I own a modest (1,000 sq. ft.) lake home in WI. During the Dems run in that state, my property taxes have continually gone up. I had hoped to retire there someday. But the ever-increasing taxes may one day force me to sell (we'll see how long the WI love affair with the Republican Party lasts). Guess who'll be the only ones left with lake property? Those hated, greedy 1% millionaires and billionaires who don't care about anyone but themselves (you know how THEY are). What bigotry. What foolishness. What a crock.

The left are like children and those in Wisconsin are no exception. Their candy stash has been threatened so they vote for the guy that can save their candy stash strictly out of fear for themselves. They haven't truly examined the reasons for their threatened candy stash or changed their ideology. As soon as their little candy stash is safe, they will revert to voting dem. Like children, instant gratification is all important and considering unintended consequences is foreign to their juvenile natures.

I may be wrong, but I think the term is 'projection'. Axelrod does it all the time.
Accuse the other side of doing just what you are doing. I think Alinsky recommended it.
Abuse and attack the middle class, and say it is the ones who practice Capitalism that, actually, are responsible.
To my mind, the term was 'Bourgoisie' for those who had property, businesses and were accumulating wealth.
And Marx recommended they be crushed between the two millstones of Taxation and Inflation. I think that sounds far too close to what is being done.

Dems used a tactic that seems like projection, but in their case it is a knowing, deliberate process. I'm wondering if there isn't some other term to cover their style. Like, maybe 'lying' perhaps?

Wouldn’t it be awful if an important election hinged on some fat cats outspending the opposition?

That was the liberals’ excuse for the failure of Democrat Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to unseat Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in Tuesday’s recall election.

The Washington Post’s Dan Eggen used figures from the “non-partisan” Wisconsin Democracy Campaign to report that Mr. Walker raised $30.5 million to Mr. Barrett’s measly $3.9 million. Wow. What a spread. Too bad it’s not the whole picture, as Ben Shapiro pointed out at Breitbart.com: “As it turns out, labor unions spent an additional $21...
