Why I Will Never be a wealthy Republican Consultant

I don’t embrace the Donald Trump phenomenon. But if I were part of the GOP, I would be looking at the  enthusiasm of his supporters and wondering why my preferred candidates don’t get that kind of energy. I would be carefully studying his messaging and techniques to see if I could learn something from them that might improve my candidates electoral prospects.

I guess that’s why I’m just a moron in flyover country instead a wealthy Republican consultant. Because obviously the thing to do with the Trump phenomenon is attack his supporters as ignorant hick rubes who are also idiots.

MSDNC/Republican Establishment Baffled by Americans’ Concern for Their Economic Well-Being

Republican Governor and GOP candidate Scott Walker recently said that our entire immigration system, legal and illegal, needs to be overhauled and that even legal immigration may need to be reduced because the influx of cheap foreign labor is hurting the American middle class.

“In terms of legal immigration, how we need to approach that going forward is saying – the next president and the next Congress need to make decisions about a legal immigration system that’s based on, first and foremost, on protecting American workers and American wages,” Walker said Monday in an interview with Glenn Beck. “It is a fundamentally lost issue by many in elected positions today – what is this doing for American workers looking for jobs, what is this doing to wages, and we need to have that be at the forefront of our discussion going forward.”

MSDNC quickly jumped in to denounce this “hardline” position. John McCain and Orrin Hatch … very old and wealthy men who never need to worry about anyone in their families losing out on a job or an educational opportunity to an illegal immigrant… denounced the “hardline” radical position of favoring Americans over illegal immigrants. Voters who have actual skin in the game tend to see the issue differently.

There are over 42 million immigrants in the USA. Legal and immigration add nearly 2 million more people per year. That’s adding a city larger than Dallas to the American landscape each year; with the attendant demands on resources, infrastructure and services. This is on top of an economy that is stagnant at best. Like everything else the political class supports, this is an unsustainable situation unless turning the USA into a Third World country is the actual goal.

And the politicians remained baffled why no one trusts them with “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.” One clue might be that in 2006, Congress passed and President Bush signed a law requiring them to build a fence and secure the border. The law was gutted the very next year and only 37 out of 900 miles of actual fence was actually built. And they profess to be baffled that the public does not trust them to follow the next border security law they pass.

Donald Trump’s reforms would end “birthright citizen,” the notion that a person in the country illegally can still claim welfare and other benefits by dint of giving birth on American soil. There is no reason being born in the USA should automatically entitle one to citizenship, unless such citizenship means nothing. Which is how Obama, Jeb, Hillary, McCain and anyone else who would hand out citizenship at the border like it was a library card treats it. These politicians find it hateful and “rayciss” that some citizens actually want to save what’s left of the American culture and the American standard of living.

California is already well on its way to third world status; with a disappearing middle class, a swath of extreme wealth along the coast, a growing impoverished underclass, and a permanently embedded one-party government. This is the endgame of unrestricted immigration.

The Tyranny of False Narratives

Posted by V the K at 12:26 am - August 16, 2015.
Filed under: Leftist Nutjobs

At its heart, the Gamergate controversy is about the Social Left insisting on injecting… nay, saturating… everything with social left politics, and getting really snitty when people say “leave your politics out of our games, please.”

Anyway, apparently this happened.

A video game journalist from Vancouver recently took to Twitter to draw attention to a Tweet sent by a gamer: The gamer had tweeted: “I fucking swear—they get rid of Huge Boobs, I’m gone.” For this journalist those 11 words captured the essence of the gamer crusade. The hypermasculine dudebro attitude–— the crude objectification of women. It’s all there. Or so it seemed to him. As he put it: “#Gamergate summarized in one impossibly perfect tweet.”

But as is often the case with media accounts of GamerGate– the facts don’t really fit the narrative. First of all, the author was not talking about video games, but rather efforts to censor images of buxom ladies on Reddit. But more importantly—the author of the tweet is a young woman named Alison. Alison is a lesbian gamer who apparently enjoys gazing at images of busty women.

It would be nice to live in a society where we could play our video games, go to our sporting events, watch our entertainment programs and not be assaulted by the dogma of Social Justice Warriors. It would be just as nice to live in a society where journalists reported facts accurately, instead of molding them to fit a narrative.

Radical Left to Use Wedding Cake Fascist Tactics to Outlaw Self-Defense

Posted by V the K at 12:09 am - August 16, 2015.
Filed under: Post 9-11 America

The Radical Left has been very successful at using the hurt feelings of gay people as a cudgel to undermine First Amendment protections of free speech and freedom of religion. So now they plan to go after Second Amendment rights using the same theory of victimhood.

The left is busy designing a new and seemingly absurd civil right, which threatens to undermine an actual right under the 2nd Amendment. This new “civil right” is to live in a society free of guns and/or “gun violence.” Bolstered by the success of the gay rights movement, anti-gun activists are already attempting to impose gun control by urging the federal government to force states to impose regulations under federal civil rights and disability statutes, by filing civil suits under the same theories, and by pursuing dubious appeals to public health (as in the anti-tobacco crusade.) They hope activist judges will further manipulate the 14th Amendment and statutes derived from it, to impose countervailing rights to that of keeping and bearing arms. Like the gay rights movement and the campaign against cigarettes, the focus will be on victimization (at the expense of personal choices and responsibility) in the expectation that American political views on guns will “evolve” over time with the helpful analysis of elite experts and unelected judges.

The Progressive left used to mock the notion that they were Socialists; now they are eagerly slapping “Bernie” stickers on their Priuses and Lesbarus. Similarly, the left used to claim libertarians and conservatives were paranoid for thinking that they were “coming for our guns.” Now, they openly admit that their agenda is a “Gun-Free Society.”

Just assume the left are lying whenever they claim their agenda isn’t Venezuelan style Marxism and you’ll be right most of the time.

The Democrat Left offers a truly pathetic defense of the Inevitable One. Hillary Just Wanted To Send Emails From Her Phone Like A Normal Person. Then The Trouble Started.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s desire to use her phone for both work and personal communications like the rest of the world has sparked a federal investigation and controversy that may likely set the tone for her campaign — and serve as a warning to the prevailing nominee.

You see, she just wanted the convenience of using her phone email, and those Republican meanies are making a big deal out of it! Probably because she’s a woman.

You gotta wonder, do they even believe this crap themselves? Or, do they simply count on the Democrat base of selfish low-information voters who don’t care how venal and corrupt their leaders are as long as they keep filling the trough?

Reason magazine has it right; Hillary could strangle and consume a live puppy-dog on television and Dems would still support her.  It’s ironic that her path to nomination is (slightly) imperiled not because she committed felonies, peddled influence to foreign countries, lied about it and tried to cover it up… but because a pure Marxist is running and promising even more free sh-t than she is.

Update: Someone looked up the author’s Twitter feed. She actually may be stupid enough to believe the crap she writes:

Mitt Romney Proven Right Again

Posted by V the K at 11:16 am - August 14, 2015.
Filed under: Big Government Follies

When Mitt Romney said that ‘Big Bird’ didn’t need public funding, the left exploded in outrage. (Technically, the left is in a continuous explosion of outrage, the only thing that shifts is the immediate target.) Apparently, without billions of dollars in taxpayers subsidies, there would be no educational children’s programming. And without Federally-funded children’s programming, underprivileged children might grow up to be illiterate, unemployable, prone to violence, and dependent on welfare. An outcome that has been entirely prevented by massive public investment in public education and children’s programming.

Turns out, Mitt was right about Sesame Street. Just like he was right about Russia.

Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind the Emmy Award-winning program, Sesame Street, and HBO, the nation’s leading premium cable network, today announced a new partnership that will make the next five seasons of the iconic series available on HBO and its multiplex channels, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and the new internet only SVOD service HBO NOW. As a key part of the deal, Sesame will be able to produce almost twice as much new content as previous seasons, and for the first time ever, make the show available free of charge to PBS and its member stations after a nine-month window.

I would be willing to bet Planned Parenthood could get by without half-a-billion in Federal subsidies either.

SFO Media Get a Taste of Karma

The MFM have taken sides. Locked in a fifty-year-old paradigm, the media have happily promoted the narrative that all cops are racists who gun down innocent black schoolchildren at will, and minorities who break the law are only stealing bread to feed their starving families. You would have to have a heart of stone not to be amused when their embrace of this narrative comes round and bites them in the butt.

“At least a dozen robberies of television news crews and still photographers that has plagued the San Francisco Bay Area in recent years. Camera crews from major Bay Area television stations and photographers from two newspapers have been robbed of their pricey gear. Two have been pistol whipped. An Oakland Tribune photographer lost five cameras in two incidents.”

The police have made no arrests, but you really can’t blame them if they haven’t been trying too hard. BTW, this is interesting information about the Sheriff of San Francisco that I was previously unaware of.

The Sheriff of San Francisco, Ross Mirkarimi, [is] himself a violent criminal who cannot carry a gun because of his domestic-violence past.

It was certainly very progressive of the people of San Francisco to elect a criminal as their chief law enforcement officer.

California Left Moves to Restrict the Movement of Residents

Posted by V the K at 1:47 pm - August 12, 2015.
Filed under: California politics

A bill in the California legislature is designed to give an unelected bureaucracy extreme authority to monitor and control people’s access to transport, all in the name of Gaia.

SB 350 is ultimately a gasoline-rationing act. The bill gives the California Air Resources Board free rein to enact a mandatory 50 percent gasoline and diesel fuel restriction (8 billion gallons annually) by the year 2030.

To meet the mandate, the state air resources board will be able to ration gas, place mobility restrictions on state residents, place surcharges on family mini-vans, trucks and SUVs, and even monitor individuals’ fuel consumption records.

It is amazing how much freedom people are willing to exchange in return for a gay marriage license and free sh-t from the Government.

It’s kind of a weird inversion of the 1981 B-movie ‘The Last Chase,’ in which cars have been outlawed everywhere except California. I guess movie producers in 1981 could not imagine their state would ever fundamentally transform from a free state to a dystopia.

The Unelectable Ones

Posted by V the K at 8:51 am - August 12, 2015.
Filed under: 2016 Presidential Election

Recently, a smug leftist on Facebook smugged smugly, “Trump and Cruz are at the front of the Rethuglican pack. This is good news for us because both are unelectable.”

Mm-Hm.

That does seem to be the conventional wisdom. Hillary wants to face off against Trump or Cruz because they are unelectable, toxic even. But are they really unelectable?

Donald Trump is an anti-politician in an age where politicians are roundly despised. He is a celebrity in a culture that adores celebrity. Putting aside his policy positions — which are largely irrelevant since most voters are ignorant at best, misinformed at worst — there is a path to the White House for him. He is unlikely to lose any of the states Mitt Romney won. It’s not inconceivable that Trump could flip states like Florida, Nevada, and Ohio, or even siphon off disaffected moderate Democrats put off by Hillary’s corruption, cronyism, and dishonesty.

Ted Cruz is despised by the Republican Establishment, and therefore, it is believed, he is “unelectable.” However, the last time I looked, the Republican Party was hated liberals, moderates, and conservatives, so he is in good company. Ted Cruz is a very gifted speaker and debator. His biggest challenge would be getting through the MFM filter; the same MFM that smeared Mitt Romney as a dog-torturer who gave women cancer with his Mormon cancer gun. Ted Cruz does do something none of the “electable” Republicans (Jeb, Kasich) do; he turns on the base and makes them excited to come out and vote.

Since 1992, the Republican Party has decided its nominee on the basis of “electability.” Every election but 2004 has featured one or more upstart candidates from the right (Pat Buchanan, Steve Forbes, Newt Gingrich) that was crushed by the party establishment in favor of a more moderate “electable” nominee. In that time, their record has been Lose, Lose, Lose Popular Vote, Win, Lose, Lose.

inigo-montoya_that-word

Not that Trump or Cruz would have an easy time of it. They wouldn’t. The MFM in this country is a propaganda arm for the Democrat Party. The Democrat fraud machine in cities like Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Detroit all but guarantee their states will turn blue regardless of how voters actually vote. But any Republican candidate would face those exact same hurdles.

But there are also other variables; a Democrat nominee that turns off their base or commits a gaffe too big for the MFM to hide; a sudden change in the economy or in the national security environment. Hurricane Sandy was certainly a last minute boost to Obama in 2012, though whether he needed it is debatable.

It’s also kind of funny that the Democrat Party front-runners are a corrupt, tone-deaf woman of no accomplishment who has a tough time appearing even moderately human on a good day and an angry old white Marxist. But no one ever seems concerned about the ‘electablility’ of Democrat candidates.

Hillary/Sanders Bidding for Votes with Your Money

Posted by V the K at 7:38 am - August 12, 2015.
Filed under: 2016 Presidential Election

The Democrat Party has basically one electoral platform; “We will take money away from other people and buy you stuff with it.”* Democrat Frontrunners Hillary Rodham Clinton and Bernie Sanders are promising to raise taxes on other people (to 90% of income in Sanders case) so they can offer free college tuition to feed their voters’ ravenous appetite for Government programs.

The plan—dubbed the “New College Compact” and estimated to cost $350 billion over 10 years—would fundamentally reshape the federal government’s role in higher education by offering new federal money, but with strings attached.

States would have to increase their own spending on higher education, and universities would be required to control spending…

Never mind that the entire reason college costs have been spiraling out of control is because they are subsidized by the Federal Government.

The increased availability of subsidized loans and federal aid is itself the primary cause of rising tuition. After all, the price of higher education can only keep rising if people somehow keep finding money to pay for it. And it is the loans and grants that provide most of that money.

It is precisely because of the Federal Government’s bottomless subsidies that colleges have become bloated with unnecessary administrative staff and useless degree programs like Womyns Studies and Queer Migration Studies. The economy doesn’t need more degreed social justice warriors, it needs more skilled tradesmen and engineers. But then, the Democrats are equally determined to flood the country with cheaper foreign labor to keep Americans out of those jobs anyway.

Republican Scott Walker notes it’s ironic that a woman who takes in quarter-million dollar speaking fees from universities would be whining about the high cost of higher education.

Sanders, by the way, is now beating Hillary in the polls. Can we admit the Democrat Party is full-on Socialist now? Not even the Swedes have the magnitude of tax-and-spend policies Clinton and Sanders are proposing.

Here’s a chuckle from Hillary: “As President, I Would Model The Kind Of Behavior I Would Hope All Americans Would Have.” So, I guess that means we’re all supposed to commit felonies, lie about them, and destroy the evidence.

*”And in return, you will turn a blind eye to our massive corruption and cronyism.”

Is Carly Fiorina Coo-Coo for the Caliphate?

Carly Fiorina did pretty well in the Republican undercard debate. As a result, her poll numbers and more importantly, donations, have been rising.

So, naturally, her rivals for the VP slot in the Republican nomination have brought out the long knives. In particular, they focus on a speech she gave as CEO of Hewlett Packard two weeks after 9-11-2001, in which she appears to effusively praise Islam.

There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world.

It was able to create a continental super-state that stretched from ocean to ocean, and from northern climes to tropics and deserts. Within its dominion lived hundreds of millions of people, of different creeds and ethnic origins.

When other nations were afraid of ideas, this civilization thrived on them, and kept them alive. When censors threatened to wipe out knowledge from past civilizations, this civilization kept the knowledge alive, and passed it on to others.

While modern Western civilization shares many of these traits, the civilization I’m talking about was the Islamic world from the year 800 to 1600.

I guess we’re supposed to take from this that Fiorina (or FioRINO as some are calling her) is actually a closet Mohammedan who is going to sell us out to the Muslim Brotherhood and help our terrorist enemies acquire weapons of mass destruction.

First, it’s a bit late to be worrying about that. Second, while Fiorina’s rightward shift from the positions she ran for the senate on a few years ago should give conservatives pause, I’m not sure this speech is quite the smoking gun her opponents are hoping for. It’s a lame speech by a corporate CEO with lots of pablum about diversity and making connections between people. Her praise of the Caliphate is over-the-top and historically questionable. It may betray a tendency to unquestionably accept politically correct narratives. It may raise questions about her authenticity, but I don’t think it means she thinks ISIS is all that and a bowl of falafel.

I don’t think it’s a big deal, but I’m open to other points of view.

An Uninformed Recap of the Republican “Debate”

Filed under: 2016 Presidential Election

I didn’t watch the debate, but based on what I have read on the internet, this is how it went down.

Megyn Kelly: “Welcome to the FoxNews Republican debate. First question to Donald Trump. Given your history of bankruptcies and corruption, why would any woman vote for a misogynist pig like you?”

Trump: “Grrrr! Snarl! You have periods!”

Kelly: “Next question, President Bush, you once said “Illegal Immigration” is an act of love, how did you become so compassionate to the plight of the less fortunate?”

Bush: “Um… um… secure the, um, border, and … mumble (check watch) stuff like that…”

Kelly: “Thank you, President Bush. Now, Ted Cruz, you say God talks to you. Are you a nut?”

Cruz: “Thank you for that question. I read scripture every day, and what it tell me is…”

Kelly: “I’m sorry, your time is up. Vice President Rubio, isn’t President Bush far more qualified than you to be president after his fantastic record as Florida Governor?”

Rubio: “My parents were immigrants.”

Kelly: “Good answer. Governor Huckleberry, what do you think of President Bush? Don’t you love the way that sounds? ‘President Bush?’”

Huckleberry: “Well, gosh all fish hooks.”

Kelly: “Next question: Governor Walker, are you awake?”

Walker: “No.”

Kelly: “Next question, Donald Trump, you’re unelectable and no one likes you.”

Trump: “That wasn’t a question.”

Kelly: “Control your temper, Mr. Trump. Next question. President Kasich, why do you think other Republicans attack you for providing health care to the poor in your state.”

Kasich: “My dad was a mailman.”

Kelly: “Governor Christie, Senator Paul, slap each other with herrings.”

Kelly: “Final Question to President Bush, isn’t America going to be great after you’re elected?”

Jeb: “I dunno, maybe, I guess.”

Kelly: “Well, that’s all we have time for. You’re watching FoxNews, Fair and … (cracks up)… I’m sorry, fair and balanced.”

The Pointlessness of #BlackLivesMatter and #Ferguson

Posted by V the K at 11:09 pm - August 10, 2015.
Filed under: Racism (Real, Reverse or Faux)

Subsidized Community Organizers marked the one year anniversary of Mike Brown attacking a cop and getting shot to death by shouting down a speech by a grumpy old white man, shooting each other, suggesting that white people needed to die, blocking traffic, and chanting obscenely on TV.

Remember when the media told us that electing Barack Obama would heal the country’s racial wounds?

In considering the #BlackLivesMatter and #Ferguson movement, the question that comes to mind is “What is the point?” What are these activists really trying to accomplish? Raise awareness? OK, done, you can go away now.

Is there some concrete objective they are working toward? It seems to be more about the protests themselves than achieving anything through the medium of protest.

Gay marriage activists had a defined objective; legalized gay marriage shoved down America’s throat. And they achieved it.

Does anyone have any clue what #BlackLivesMatter is out to accomplish, aside from making life measurably worse for blacks in the inner city?

Update:  Evil Otto has the best answer, the only point is gratification of the left-winger’s narcissist ego.

It’s THEATER, meant to make them feel that they’re part of a struggle, standing up to the forces of evil when all they’re really doing is pissing off commuters.

And what it did for [a left-wing friend] was to provide him with a fantasy — a fantasy, namely, of taking part in the revolutionary struggle of the oppressed against their oppressors. By participating in a violent anti-war demonstration, he was in no sense aiming at coercing conformity with his view — for that would still have been a political objective. Instead, he took his part in order to confirm his ideological fantasy of marching on the right side of history, of feeling himself among the elect few who stood with the angels of historical inevitability. Thus, when he lay down in front of hapless commuters on the bridges over the Potomac, he had no interest in changing the minds of these commuters, no concern over whether they became angry at the protesters or not. They were there merely as props, as so many supernumeraries in his private psychodrama. The protest for him was not politics, but theater; and the significance of his role lay not in the political ends his actions might achieve, but rather in their symbolic value as ritual. In short, he was acting out a fantasy.

Fox’s Anti-Trump Strategy Backfires

Posted by V the K at 8:16 am - August 10, 2015.
Filed under: 2016 Presidential Election

Speaking as someone who is standing outside the pissing contest between the equally obnoxious pro-Trump and anti-Trump camps, two things are clear:

However, if the debate hosts were out to get Donald Trump, they totally went about it the wrong way.

If Trump really is the clown and buffoon the GOP Establishment says he is, then Fox shouldn’t need to ask the attack dog, tabloid-style questions they asked during the debate. They could have asked meaningful, substantive questions and let Trump implode on his own. But instead, they asked questions like “So, why should women vote for a misogynist pig like you?” (paraphrasing), and the attack was so obvious it only galvanized his supporters further.

You don’t expose a buffoon by asking him buffoonish questions. You ask him serious questions and let him expose himself.

As a buffoon.

It was also wrong for Erick Erickson to disinvite Trump from the Red State forum. We’re not the left. We respect free speech and believe in giving people a chance to defend their ideas.

And also, that the best way to expose someone as a fool is to let him talk.

Socialism Is Bad for Gays and Other Living Things

Filed under: Gun Control,Socialism in America

There is a contest on the Left Coast to see which large urban Metroplex can be America’s most radical left city. San Francisco, Oakland, and Portland OR all try very hard to see who can best implement the destructive policies of central planning and punishing the hard-working, but Seattle routinely wins. It helps that one of the city’s landmarks is a statue of Soviet Revolutionary Communist Vladimir Lenin.

In this spirit, Seattle has introduced a $15 an hour minimum wage, which while even before full implementation is shutting down restaurants and small businesses throughout the city. They also passed a law making it illegal not to sort your household garbage, enforced by apparatchiks examining people’s garbage and encouraging neighbors to rat on each other; just as citizens of the Soviet Union were encouraged to rat out their neighbors to the state for hoarding food or listening to western radio broadcasts.

And now, the radical left-wingers ofSeattle’s city government have decided to push a “Gun Violence Tasks” on gun sales and ammunition sales.

A Seattle City Council committee on Wednesday voted unanimously to approve a two-pronged gun-safety plan, which would tax sales of guns and ammunition in Seattle and require that gun owners report the theft or loss of any firearm within 24 hours.

This has nothing to do with “gun safety,” the left’s favored euphemism for gun control. This is about punishing gun owners because the left disapproves of their behavior. It is also about driving law-abiding gun shops out of the city (which worked oh so well in Chicago), just as Seattle’s $15-an-hour minimum wage for burger flippers is driving small businesses into the suburbs. https://www.aei.org/publication/minimum-wage-effect-january-to-june-job-losses-for-seattle-area-restaurants-1300-largest-since-great-recession/

And then there is this silly piece of rationalization.

Harborview Medical Center treated 253 victims of gun violence in 2014 at a cost of $17 million, $12 million of that borne by the taxpayers, so it is right to “ask the gun industry to chip in and help defray those costs,” Seattle City Council President Tim Burgess, sponsor of the legislation, told colleagues.

Of course, making the people who actually inflicted the injuries pay for treatment is a concept that would baffle the average leftist. This is kind of like making everyone who owns a car responsible for the medical bills of drunk drivers who get into accident. Actually, the left has figured out a way to do that, too. The state of Michigan has had “No Fault” (i.e. socialized, i.e. “universal”) Auto Insurance going back a generation. How well has that worked out? Well, Michigan has the highest car insurance rates in the country; and fifty percent of motorists in Detroit don’t carry car insurance. And why should they, since the state makes responsible people pay more so that scofflaws are not inconvenienced. See also California and illegal immigrants.

At the end of the day, this is the kind of political posturing the left loves to do so much. The mundane business of collecting garbage, keeping streets in good repair, and keeping the cops honest but effective… theses sorts of things are just beneath the dignity of the radical left’s political class.

Ah, The Old Saving Your Political Career by Starting a Rumor You Had Sex with a Gay Prostitute Trick

Posted by V the K at 8:47 am - August 8, 2015.
Filed under: Gay Politics

In our current political climate, it is apparently better for a male politician to be accused of having sex with a gay prostitute than a female politician.

State Rep. Todd Courser planned the distribution of a fictional email alleging he had sex with a male prostitute in a bid to conceal his relationship with Rep. Cindy Gamrat, according to audio recordings obtained by The Detroit News.

Courser, a Lapeer Republican, said on one recording the email was designed to create “a complete smear campaign” of exaggerated, false claims about him and Gamrat so a public revelation about the legislators’ relationship would seem “mild by comparison.”

They should resign. And if they don’t resign, they should be kicked out of office. Their constituents should hold them to a higher standard than Democrats hold theirs to.

GOP Candidates Struggle to Relate to the Common Folk

Reviewing the transcript, one is struck that some of the GOP candidates were eager to show off their middle-class bonafides.

MARCO RUBIO: You know, both of my parents were born into poor families on the island of Cuba.

CRUZ: I’m the son of a pastor and evangelist and I’ve described many times how my father, when I was a child, was an alcoholic. He was not a Christian. And my father left my mother and left me when I was just three years old.

JOHN KASICH: Well, Megyn, my father was a mailman. His father was a coal miner. My mother’s mother could barely speak English.

CHRIS CHRISTIE: Listen, I was born into a middle class family in New Jersey. My dad came home from serving in the Army after having lost his father, worked in the Breyers ice cream plant in Newark, New Jersey. Was the first person to graduate from college. He put himself through college at night. My mom was a secretary.

It’s been done better.
