GOP Tom Davis Labels Changing Electorate ‘Underclass Pulled Out Of Apartments’


There is a narrative growing in the Republican Party that somehow the votes that President Obama got is not worthy. Mitt Romney claimed that the President won by giving gifts to different constituencies.

Former Virginia Congressman Tom Davis in his interview with Chis Matthews on MSNBC showed the GOP’s core beliefs in no uncertain terms. Watch it below. It is stunning. What is more stunning is that he does not realize that he is saying that some voters are really not worthy by inference.

See The Video HERE.

This should not surprise anyone. Most people that live their lives attacking are doing nothing more than projecting. In other words they are applying a reflection of themselves on those they are attacking.

Those that believe they are entitled are not the underclass? If they did, they would vote or vote more often. Many do not vote because they think they do not matter. That is hardly a spirit of entitlement. In fact it is a spirit of unworthiness that the Obama campaign from its inception has worked meticulously to address. “Yes We Can” was his call to all.

Republicans however show a certain type of arrogance to governance. They act as if the president’s mandate is suspect. They act as if irrespective of what the masses have elected the president to do; that their own policies are what matters or should be effected.

Good for the President that empowering the masses took hold in the 2012 election. Those in the “underclass pulled out of the apartments” came out, voted, and in doing so proved their worth. They showed that while they had little, their one vote changed the potential direction the country would have taken if Mitt Romney was elected. In effect they saved the middle class.

It is imperative that as the Republican Party attempts to marginalize and silence these new voters from further participation in the electoral process using Jim Crow tactics, the Liberal Base and the President continue to do the necessary work that will be required to ensure they remain engaged and relevant. This can only be done by ensuring policies are effected that all can visibly see moving every demographic forward.

1. I Like The 'Pulled Out' Part Particularly, Sir

Like they did not really want to vote, like they were digging in their heels right to the threshold, but the grip of those ...whatevers... that were making them vote, it was just too strong, and they gave in....

If we could just get rid of those people that made them vote, those outside agitators, those elitist, educated snobs, those community organizers, well, then, everything would be fine again....

4. Heaven forbid that some people care enough about democracy in this country

to encourage other people to get out and vote and participate in democracy. Of course, I know a group of people whom are pretty clear that they want as few people voting and participating in democracy: Republicans. Anybody remember what conservative activist Paul Weyrich said about voting:

"I don't want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of the people. They never have been from the beginning of our country and they are not now. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down."

This is the Republican creed regarding voting, plain and simple.

5. "mudsills and greasy mechanics for A. Lincoln"

That was a sign held at a Lincoln rally in 1860. (From McPherson's book, Battle Cry for Freedom")

The soon-to-be-Confederate aristos were complaining about the rabble that was being allowed to vote.

Same exact thing from the same exact people 150 years later.


I am so tired of these bums. They never change. They never learn. They never run out of money to push their rotten anti-democracy agenda.

9. See my post "People who just want stuff: 1860"

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021803220

Can't copy&paste the whole thing here right now, but it's an 1860 political cartoon that hits all the conservative tropes, and could have been written yesterday by a producer on FOX.

Same playbook, 150 years later. "Same exact thing from the same exact people" indeed.

6. Let the pigs keep thinking that.

The GOP as we know it is doomed to the dustbin of history UNLESS they wake up and smell the coffee ...

But they won't. And that's a good thing.

8. You'll know the Republicans have changed...

...when we stop hearing things like this.

Until then, they're just making the hole they're eventually gonna have to dig themselves out of even deeper.
