  •  "Authoritarians" -- yes, indeed. (8+ / 0-)

    That applies equally for Business and Bircher Republicans.

    You see that with Romney and his "47%" speech. All through the campaign he echos the themes of Thatcherism in England, including demonizing unions and blaming schools as training camps for Leftist perversity.

    Racist hatred seems to have been the key to Romney getting the large majority of White votes. It certainly wasn't the Obama/Eisenhower policy system that had come out of the White House.

    For a brighter side to matters, what about 2016 when the Democrats will likely not be running a Black guy ??? The racist propaganda vaporizes and what do they have to go on?

      Maybe it's just me, but I don't think Business Republicans are much better. They just couch their language in a little bit more polite terms so soccermom types won't be embarrassed to tell the neighbors they vote for them. But, the economic policies are pretty much the same between the two. i.e., union busting, reducing unemployment insurance, no safety regulations in the workplace, and so on.

      Where are all the jobs, Boehner?

        That's the real division between the two parties.  Business Republicans just use the social stuff as a smoke screen to get working class voters to elect people who work against their economic interests.

        There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.

        That's what they are modelling these days.

        Hatred of unions is a calling card. If they can sink somebody's battleship, then down it goes.
