    Middle income is probably closer to $1,000,000 to $2,500,000 once you adjust for inflation and asshattery.

    That’s right people, you’re the super-poor and they call you middle class so you don’t mass-suicide and take all your funds with you.

    madmartigan

    Right, but what he was saying is that the middle income cap was $200,000 to $250,000. Meaning the poeple below that figure where middle income. And let us not forget Obama says the same thing!!!

    notspamming

    Sadly most politicians have some whacked sense of middle, average, reality, etc.
    Even more sad – that what anon up there wrote is somewhat true too – middle class is “dying out”, thats where’s that huge income gap is from.

    no

    Eh its a misrepresentation of what he said. It’s easily seen that he meant that was the upper limit. While wrong on the upper limit, it’s closer to 100k, the above is really just reaching and intellectually dishonest in an argument.

    /voting for Obama and we have more then enough evidence this guy is terrible without doing the above.

    Mitt’s a liar and probably a thief, too, in addition to being completely out of touch with the parts of America that don’t collect dancing horses, but he actually said 200-250 thousand or less. He was just trying to keep up with Obama, without sounding too much like Obama.

    outlanderssc

    To be accurate, he said $200,000 to $250,000 OR LESS.

    Most of the major outlets that released this have retracted it.

    flint

    Regardless of the “or less” qualifier, the question he was answering was “So is middle income $100,000?”

    And his immediate response was “NO”, followed by the $200k-250k quote. Context is still key.

    outlanderssc

    Since context is the key, we might as well reference the entire conversation:

    But haven’t Obama/Biden also stated that “Middle Class” is $250,000 for a couple/$200,000 for and individual and that THEIR taxes wouldn’t be raised?

    Korinthian

    From Wikipedia: “As social classes lack clear boundaries and overlap there are no definite income thresholds as for what is considered middle class. Sociologist Leonard Beeghley identifies a male making $57,000 and a female making $40,000 with a combined households income of $97,000 as a typical middle-class family.[30] Sociologists William Thompson and Joseph Hickey estimate an income range of roughly $35,000 to $75,000 for the lower middle class and $100,000 or more for the upper middle class. Many social scientists including economist Michael Zweig and sociologist Dennis Gilbert contend that middle class persons usually have above median incomes.” Then slap… Read more »

    An economist friend said “Working class figures their income by the hour, Middle class by the year and upper class by the increase in net worth, dollar amounts are unimportant”

    Korinthian

    Sounds more like a lazy man’s answer to a hard question, or maybe a very general rule of thumb.

    Of course dollar amounts are important; no one would consider a family that can’t afford bread middle class.

    outlanderssc

    Think it’s a general rule of thumb. What he’s saying is not so much a precise dollar cut off as an economic lifestyle thing.

    oldnoob

    Obama’s idea of middle class was $120 per person and $240 per household. I don’t see it any different. The true is none of them care about you. Because most of you will listen whatever is on Fox or ABC. And vote without research. Despite “middle” class has the most votes therefore should be the leading voice in the country.

    outlanderssc

    When did Obama say that? I remember he said he wouldn’t raise taxes on people who made $120K/year or less, but that’s not defining what is “middle class” it’s just a tax threshold.

    This post brought to you by Media Matters and the DOJ.

    ‘merica.

    DrEvil

    And leftists think anyone making $200K per year are millionaires and billionaires who should be paying more in taxes than they already pay, because they are not paying their share, while almost half the country provides basically no revenue to the Government.

    Why is it that these political discussions always end up full of anonymous posters? Don’t they know that no one listens if you don’t have a name?

    HoChunk

    They’re all Magnus, using proxies (look at all the downvote rage focused on outlanderssc. You think that comes from some cadre of like-minded ignoramuses?)
    And he knows nobody reads posts with his name attached, so what’s he got to lose?

    TrAyVon'S GhOSt, nuCca

    I have not once posted as anon. I always log in. Nice try though. You guys see your opinions as not so popular and you start to cry? Even if you log out you can’t vote again from the same computer. Ever wonder if maybe people are sick of that outlanderssc’s posting on every fucking comment and ALWAYS not matter what being a total butthurt loser? He fucking whines every time he posts something here. He’s either barfing out leftist stupidity whenever even slightly an option or he’s disagreeing with someone for the sake of disagreeing. I’m surprised it took… Read more »

    Didn’t read, Magnome, but I’ll take a wild guess and assume it doesn’t make any sense.

    outlanderssc

    Hmmmm.. People are sick of my comments, so they downvote YOUR comments – very interesting. Or wasn’t it you whining about your 20+ downvotes a while ago?

    TrAyVon'S GhOSt, nuCca

    “look at all the downvote rage focused on outlanderssc. ” That’s straight from the guy’s post. My response was people are tired of your whining bullshit. Your response is ‘nobody is that’s why they downvote YOU’? Learn to read. I mean holy fuck…no wonder your such a blind sheeple. You can’t even fucking understand basic English. lol Every post you whine. Every single one. You didn’t think people coming here to see funny pictures would get sick of your bullshit? Or does this mirror rl too much? Though irl I imagine you get told to shut the fuck up ALL… Read more »

    My, My magnus – you should calm down
    You’re going to give yourself a stroke!

    After all, it’s just opinions on the internet.

    TrAyVon'S GhOSt, nuCca

    You’re such a pathetic little queer.

    outlanderssc

    I wish I could tell you how much you saying that hurts me –

    But I can’t, because it doesn’t – not at all.

    TrAyVon'S GhOSt, nuCca

    Who cares?

    Nobody cares what some pussy little faggot thinks about anything.

    You’re an ant waiting to get squashed. Queer.

    outlanderssc

    You know, you really should consider switching to decaf –

    crewmanguy

    Thought you have to be logged in to vote on comments and posts?

    HoChunk

    Nope: just upvoted you before logging in.

    I also tried to rate images, but that much seems to require being signed on.

    Trinity

    But you can still only vote once, logged in or not.

    crewmanguy

    That explains the changes on the political posts then. People stumping for the candidates by anon votes.

    madmartigan

    Really, does it really matter if I log in to some made up name like lukev1-5 or do it anonymously! thats so fucking retarted “Im not reading your post cuase im a 30yr old boy and your not logged in” So lame. No wonder you like Obama.

    Luke Magnifico

    It matters because if people don’t log in there’s no way of keeping track of who’s saying what in a conversation. Now obviously when someone such as yourself has a distinctive flair for misspelling it’s not a big deal but it becomes a real problem when the people involved are literate above a 3rd grade level.

    RalphTheDog

    Mitt Romney is middle America? Holy shit, you guys are doing well down there!!

    xpartsx

    I think ill just check this again.
    electoral-vote.com/

    Yuuup, obama still gonna win.

    Trinity

    By 60% in the electorals, that’s impressive. But I don’t think it’s Obama, it’s Romney sticking his foot in his mouth.

    DisplacedTexan

    So… I’m the only middle class person posting here?
