The GOP’s definition of “Class Warfare” is like their definition of “Clear Skies” or “No Child Left Behind”…Black is White, Up is Down, Right is Wrong…it’s just more of that famous Republican Doublespeak.

vruz: I disagree.  It is war, and it’s always been on. you’re only getting to feel it in the flesh recently.  it’s stupid to let the republicans victimise themselves and pretend nothing is happening.  it is war, and it’s always been against the weak and the poor.

it’s a war that only centrist moral relativism can decline to face.

The contemptuous reaction from the House speaker, John Boehner, to the president’s request to address a joint session next Wednesday — the day Congress returns from its summer recess — was appalling. No matter how he feels about Mr. Obama personally or politically, there can be no excuse for his lack of respect for the office, to which he is second in the line of succession. And it was distressing to watch President Obama fail, once again, to stand up to an opposition that won’t brook the smallest compromise.
