Typically, the people who hold the real power in any society are outnumbered a million to one, or more, by the people who are out of power.
One time-honored technique for keeping everybody in line is to split the populace into two camps. If you train everybody to argue and rant and rave at each other, then they are far less likely to come after you (the real perpetrators of the misery).
There you go again. LOL. Nothing is ever the dem's fault, but any good was due to them. Just 2 weeks ago, Curious O was spouting the economy has recovered and "turned the corner". All they have done is kicked the can down the road and made things worse. As for Bush, people forget, the dems took the senate years before he was out of office, and that moron barney frank and his moron buddies single handed ruined the economy by creating the housing bubble. It was this moron that decided "everyone" should have a home, and not only a home, but ANY house they WANTED, not what they could afford. Bam, housing bubble. Not Bush's fault, the dems! That is a FACT.
