Obama's hateful "class warfare" rant yesterday further exemplfied how little he is qualified to be President. Will America survive the last months of Obama constantly dividing us all into mere fractions of Americans?

That is exactly what he is doing, just generate some hate against something to get support, it has worked well for unethical leaders throughout history, just blame someone for everyone problems then it distracts criticism from your own record of achievement. With hitler it was the Jews who were at fault for Germany's woes. With obama it is the rich. I will never be a county singer for monday night football so I can make these analogies.

We have endured DECADES of class warfare, from Reagan, and Bush II, and now this inept, corrupt, House of Representatives.

This CLASS WARFARE has been against the USA middle class, and we are beyond decimated.

If Obama is re-elected it isn't because he "fooled us". We will deserve every disasterous out come that He deals to American families. The scary thing is whether America can even survive four more years of unvarnished Hate from the White House being substituted for sober minded leadership.
