Not The Party Of ...

Amateur exorcist & volcano-ignorer Piyush "Bobby" Jindal, who is also the governor of one of the (former) Confederate States, quoted in POLITICO, via Political Wire:
"We've got to make sure that we are not the party of big business, big banks, big Wall Street bailouts, big corporate loopholes, big anything. We cannot be, we must not be, the party that simply protects the rich so they get to keep their toys."
American voters, surveyed:
But the interesting numbers come in the answers to the question on Romney’s policies. Not surprisingly, 87 percent of Obama supporters said the Mittster’s policies favored the rich, while 0 percent said they favored the poor. Among Romney’s own supporters, only 10 percent said his policies favored the rich and, just like Obama supporters, 0 percent said that they favored the poor.

That’s a flat 0 percent across the board who said Romneynomics favored the poor.

Now, 0 percent is a number you don’t come across very often in polling. Usually, you can count on 2 or 3 percent of respondents to hear the question wrong and answer accordingly. But in this case, in a poll of nearly 20,000 people, there was absolute consensus: Nobody, but nobody, thought Romney cared enough about the poor to do anything for them. Nevermind Paul Ryan’s protestations, or those of various GOP polemicists, that supply-side trickle-down would benefit the poor more than any Democratic policies would. Ryan not only failed to convince Obama’s supporters of this, he didn’t convince any of his own and Romney’s supporters, either.
Good luck fucking that chicken, y'all.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
