Hey, at least there is hope if there are successful people voting for Obama. I thought it was only welfare queens and moochers!

Lenin had it right. The capitalist would sell the Reds the ropes with which to hang them. Without the money and brains of highly successful people the Dem party would be dead. The SEIU can’t run it on their stupid own.

Again, wealth and power bring corruption. I can say honestly that Romney didn’t just lose the poor, the real wealthy elites in America were also a point of losing for him. For a little clue, the libs pretty much dominate, statistically speaking the extreme ends on the spectrum. If you took a look at the wealthiest Americans in say, Forbes magazine, you would find that the Democrats have a majority of net worths behind them. Again, it’s an old story, but the Democrats have been in bed with the wealthy and powerful out there for a long, long, time.

They are the super rich, they can afford it.

These are the “too big to fail” group

The small businessman can't

Let’s see how they like it when they are forced to spread the wealth.

Hehe, and people find this surprising. Socialism, fascism/marxism/communism, are just a re-packaged form of monarchy. The only variation is who gets to call the shots, and who can take the gold. The old line wealth learned this long ago, and the new line wealth just figured this out. If they know that their industries will be nationalized, they’ll get into bed with the dictator, hoping that they get screwed last, or at least curry favor.

Makes sense. They got money, now they want power. A seat at the table of power as the “prefered ones” in the new socialist states of America.

Fairfax and to a lesser extent Loudoun counties get their wealth from defense work. That’s why it is critically important to sequester and cut off that gravy train. Many other blue counties will suffer as well. The next thing that will happen is Feinstein will go visit dirty Harry and tell him to call Boner and cut a deal on taxes. If Harry dithers she will throw him across the room. Once senate dems fall in line on a tax deal, Obama will simply sign it.

I have some very wealthy family members and they are all far left liberals.

1. They believe the Federal Government should help people. NOT them. Not their time, talent or money. But somebody else should do it. They support every big/all government programs as it helps their guilt for having so much.

2. NONE of them believe that ANY of these programs will affect them. Wait in line for a doctor? Not a chance in hell. Section 8 housing? Not in their neighborhood. Private schools for all their children. Government programs are for the little people.

3. Taxes? They have armies of accountants and lawyers and shield nearly all of their assets and income. Taxes are for the little people.

4. They honestly believe they are doing God’s working supporting Obama.

when you serve the ultra rich and the poor, you know where it leaves the middle, working class....

I've always said that "taxing the rich" is really code for "taxing the middle"....in some way, somehow, they'll figure it out..

I hope they are taxed so freaking hard that they will be on EBT cards come 2014.

I guess John F. Kerry didn’t have no moneys because rich people are evil and we certainly would’ve heard about it if he was one of those evil rich bastards who never worked a day in his life for all that moolah.

Notice they parse it by *county*, not precinct. Most counties are HUGE and can have a lot of "poor" included in the vote with the "rich". Many poor voting for Obongo outnumber the fewer wealthy in the county.

This is just more leftist propaganda. This is just as usefuyl as those comparisons that say "look at how much acreage of the US voted for Romney!"

Throw them under the bus and spread their wealth. I don’t want to hear their cries.

Interesting that Morris County — Chris Christie’s home turf where he currently lives and where he got his start in politics — went for Romney. Morris, Somerset and Hunterdon are heavily Republican counties, but they’re not necessarily conservative when it comes to many issues. I suspect the Somerset Co. vote for Obama was mainly due to low GOP turnout in a state that wasn’t contested by either candidate and where there were no close races for any office.

I grew up in Montgomery County, MD and moved away for the past 30 years. Over this time Bethesda has been transformed from a relatively sleepy (yet expensive) D.C. suburb to a cosmopolitan hub, with some of the area’s best restaurants and shops in the center of town near the Metro station. My sense is that the majority of its residents voted for Obama. Recently while visiting there I couldn’t help thinking that all the conspicuous consumption and “upscale-ness” going on in Bethesda is, directly or indirectly, more than 75% dependent on Federal Government expenditure. There is no way these very high-end Washingtonians, Democrat or Republican, will tolerate a shrinking of our government. These people are also very much a part of the 47%.
