The outrage and anger in defense of the wealthy...
It is amazing the hatred some folks can muster when they feel someone is attacking the rich.

Rush and his dittoheads are approaching a psychotic break. One asks, "Why don't 'we' make an ad showing Bill Clinton calling Romney's record as a businessman 'sterling'?" They are mad as hell and they are not going to take it anymore.

Their anger and hatred is so thick you can cut it with a butter knife. They cannot understand why their side is losing at the moment? Mitt Romney worked 16-18 hours a day to save the Olympics. Don't ask me how they know that - maybe they have his time card that he punched?

The poor, poor rich man. Why do those socialist Democrats keep attacking the "job creators" they ask? So much sympathy and compassion for Mitt Romney's class and hardly none for the single mother working as a waitress or the father working two jobs just to pay for gas and rent and a little food, with the help of some food stamps. No compassion for those folks. It it those rich folks that are being mistreated and abused by our system.

1. I only wish Republicans were the only ones defending the wealthy.
While the blue team's candidate is (again) running against a red team candidate that is very rich, it has become convenient to put down the rich. However, that has certainly not always been the case with Democrats. And, as we can see, they are having a lot more trouble with it than rich guy FDR ever had.

Yes, Clinton did praise Romney. So did the Mayor of Newark, who seems to have been bounced as an Obama surrogate, after his campaign debut on Meet the Press.

In Lincoln's Day, Democrats were the party of the rich, as well as the pro slavery party. Then, Democrats became the party of the working person and Republicans became the party of the coupon clippers. And now, politicians of both parties are minions of plutonomy. /

But, voters just cannot seem to let go of their old paradigms and dichotomies.
