  •  The 47% trap (1+ / 0-)

    Amazing how Dems and "progressives" and "liberals" have eagerly jumped into the right's 47% trap.  The hegemony was petrified by the emergence of the rhetoric of the 99% vs the 1% that emerged with Occupy, so they recrafted it back into a Hegemonic Majority of 53% against 47% "looser librul leeches", and sure enough, the center-right "liberal" "opposition" to the hegemony of capital snapped the bait right up, identifying itself now as 47% rather than 99%.  

    How sadly and utterly predictable it all was, too.

    Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?

      Mittens was complaining about the 47% of us who are lost to him and who he isn't going to 'court'.  The 53% (the rest) is game for him, fresh for the pickin's. Consider the 53% as 100% of whom Romney thinks he can bamboozle. However, he is incorrect.  He is still part of the elitist 1%.  No one has lost sight of that.
      It is still the 99% against Rmoney's millionaire/billionaire friends, the 1%.  There are just some in the 99% who mistakenly believe Rmoney's lies.  Or some who think they will magically become part of the elusive 1% elite (hint - they won't) And, of course, there are some of the 99% who are racist bigots who would vote for anyone but a black man, doesn't matter who it is.  
      The willful ignorance/stupidity/bigotry displayed is appalling.  As are the R's lies and shifting non-policies on everything.  Any woman or elderly person who votes for this Rethug duo is truly voting against themselves and all other women and the elderly.
      And BTW, what IS in Mittens tax returns he's so loathe to release?

      I think, therefore I am........................... Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose....AKA Engine Nighthawk - don't even ask!

      •  Good diary. Good Work. GREAT comments! (0+ / 0-)

        Mr. Romney, 99% of Americans are not you. How can you propose to represent, much less govern a nation with whom you simply cannot relate?

        Nurse Kelley says my writing is brilliant and my soul is shiny - who am I to argue?
