``But, let's face it; no one really gives a rip about "drone attacks in Waziristan" or "hunger strikes in Gitmo". What they care about is keeping their jobs, paying off their student loans, putting the food on the table or avoiding the fate of next-door-neighbor, Andy, who got his pink slip two months ago and now finds himself living in a cardboard box by the river. That's what the average working stiff worries about; just scraping by enough to stay out of the homeless shelter.  But it's getting harder all the time, mainly because everything's gotten worse under Obama.  It's crazy. It's like the whole middle class is being dismantled in a 10-year period. Wages are flat,  jobs are scarce, incomes are dropping like a stone, and everyone's broke''
