Deploying the rhetoric of class warfare against congressional Republicans, President Obama warned Wednesday that “social tensions will rise” if Washington doesn’t take steps to reverse the growing gap between wealthy Americans and the middle class.

In a campaign-style speech at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., the president proclaimed that America during his presidency has “fought its way back” from the recession and called on voters to “pressure Congress to invest in our future” on priorities such as education, clean energy and infrastructure.

He predicted that if the GOP resists his plans, the nation’s social fabric will begin to fray as resentment builds among lower economic groups.

“The position of the middle class will erode further,” Mr. Obama said. “Inequality will continue to increase, money’s power will distort our politics even more. Social tensions will rise, as various groups fight to hold on to what they have, start blaming somebody else for why their position isn’t improving. That’s not the America we know.”

    Social tensions are already at a high point and growing over the Gang in Washington now.
    Liars, Frauds, self serving egotists that are more concerned with what they want rather than what the people want. The repeated attempts to remove our constitutional rights as well as minimize our objections. The liberal Media that ignores select events and stories. The courts that ignore the law and create their own. Yeah! you boys and girls are in trouble come 2014 so keep up the good work you pack of short timers.
