GOP – Family’s making less than 100k are ” America’s underclass”- Who Knew?

 

                             When Mitt Romney talked about the “47%” we all got an unusual window into the mind and soul  of America’s  Grand Old Party. The privileged set was gathered in Boca Raton, Florida  ..listening breathlessly to Romney muse about that underbelly of America. Romney opined about  those “takers” that suck the life out of all the “candlestick makers”. The negative reaction of the general public to Romney’s comment’s was the nail in the coffin to his beleaguered campaign. The Republicans never recovered from Mitt’s slight of the “other America”.

         Just this evening, Former Virginia congressman Tom Davis embarrassed himself on national T.V….with his shocking comment’s about President Obama’s re-election. Davis lamented that the “underclass minorities are starting to vote”as the root cause of the Republcian lose in November. This Republican stalwart believes individual people making less than $ 50,000 a year are “that other America”. So, all those school teachers and salespeople, hospital workers and bank tellers…middle managers and retail employee’s …are now considered less than “full class” Americans.The  only leadership showing up these days   for the Republicans are old, white and ill-suited to lead the demographically diverse, not so white America. Davis was very concerned about  “darker people” actually getting out of their chairs and voting. 

          Is it  just a matter of time that the “Davis’s” of  white America shrivel up and go away ?  Will the conservatives  change or will these white dudes be replaced by their younger brothers? How can the GOP continue to be a national party when they are uncompetitive in national elections. Florida and Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina , Colorado are  all changing rapidly.  I’m old enough to remember New Mexico and Nevada were solid Republican…only to move to solid blue these days…with all trend pointing away form the GOP. . With he lack of checks and balances looming, one has to wonder whats the game plan. The Republicans have a short time to put a new face on the Republican party. Looking at the trends and the will to survive..look for two names to be front and center for the GOP..and it’s not Bush or McCainney .Marco Rubio of Florida and Bobby Jindal of Louisiana will be the new faces moving forward. Let’s hope in their America … it won’t be the “Underclass”Against the “over-classed…and we won’t be seeing Tom Davis on national television anymore!
