Bill Kristol: Republicans
Look Like They ‘Don’t Care
About the Middle Class’

Breitbart TV, by Staff

Original Article

Bill Kristol: “The Republicans are in real risk now of looking like they’re defending keeping the current tax rates for the wealthy, the Bush tax rates for the wealthy, and right now the official Republican position is let the payroll tax rate go back up by 2 points. That is a 2 percentage point increase on every American, but it’s a, Republicans care about marginal rates, it’s a marginal increase on everyone making less than $100,000 a year. At the end of the day, President Obama is selling a very simple message,

What a complete moron. Every week he plays right into the hands of the Democrats by substantiating their lies. Un.be.lievable.

Kristol is off the deep end. He really appears to have lost it. He is rapidly becoming an embarrassment. Let´s have him sit down next to David Brooks.

I saw this jerk on Wallace´s panel and was astounded at his chutzpah. He´s no Republican nor an Independent. He is an Obama sycophant. Can´t watch any more panels on Fox or elsewhere. All the same baloney...give in or get out! No matter what happens, we are going to get hosed in taxes, cliff or not.

Kristol is interested in one thing, it seems - war with Iran!

He should shut up about everything else - since he really doesn´t care.

For a guy who makes a living explaining politics, he really doesn´t seem to understand what is going on. On the other hand if elected Republicans can´t articulate their positions on anything, I can´t expect others to explain it for them. At least Kristol didn´t mention how Republicans are for slavery. The lying democrats and this media have established a new ´truth´ in record time. Ask the average urban dweller if you don´t think this is true.

Yet, oddly enough, the Republican party seems to be where you find most of the "middle-class" Americans. Hmmmmm.

Billy Boy, you are so wrong I don´t know where to start. First, you need to report to the Tatoo parlor and get RINO put on your forhead in 3" BOLD letters. Second you need to go to the Dollar Store and buy yourself a "CLUE". Third you need wake up to the fact that We all care about the Middle Class, we ARE the Middle Class, it is the MSM backing up the Dims that keep saying we don´t care...and you know a lie repeated over and over becomes the truth in weak minds...like yours!

B.O. is the one who doesn´t care about the middle class. He wants the across the board increase to redistribute middle class income.

B.O. wants redistribution ... from all wage earners to the non-earners.

This time, it appears that most of the L-Dotters above jumped to the wrong conclusion. If they would stop to think for a moment, and relax their reflexive knee-jerking, they might realize that Kristol makes a good point: Republicans need to pay much more attention to creating a winning image. Kristol didn´t say the Republicans "don´t care about the middle class." He said Republicans are doing a poor job of image enhancement because they "LOOK like they don´t care about the middle class."

He´s right. It´s tough to create a good image when the media is deep, deep in the tank for Lefty Obama, but the pubbies need to pay more attention to ensuring the truth gets out in a positive way.

Some of the country´s richest young people came together at the White House recently for a day-long conference about how exactly they plan to spend their inherited wealth. The invitation-only event sought to engage the young billionaires with the public sector and with each other in order to empower and advance their philanthropic endeavors. The event was organized by Thomas Khalil, a deputy director for technology and innovation in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy along with Nexus, an organization that aims to encourage philanthropy among the young and rich.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Father Ray Kelly, the singing Irish priest who shot to fame with his wedding ceremony cover of “Hallelujah,” will perform in New York, on Tuesday May 13, to support the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform. On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth. As his video gathered traction online Fr Kelly was a guest on RTE’s “Late Late Show.” He told host Ryan Tubridy that he hoped his new found fame

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
