That's an uninformed statement.

The saying "it's funny because it's true" comes to mind.

So basically, we have over a dozen pages of right wingers not being able to actually address the points Stewart made, and instead pulling the "Fox News Trot" and just saying "Well, he's rich, he can't have a real opinion on this."

Again, we'll keep this in mind the next time a rich Republican says something.

The irony is inequality has become more extreme under Obama. Fiscal policies such as QE have made the rich richer and does not trickle down to anyone else.

Obama hasn't done much to help the middle class. I've criticized him for that before. Still, Republicans don't seem to offer any real suggestions either.

It wouldn't matter what Republicans suggested. Nothing would get past the Senate, and Obama wouldn't sign it anyway.

The flaw is that "helping the poor" as the Dems usually want is nothing more than masking the core problems in the family structure of urban poor people.
Urban people?

LMAO...you guys are amazing with your euphemisms.

Do you realize how much rural poverty there is in this country?
