Boortz is clueless knob, either ignorant or catering to the ignorant. You can't call the rich 'bourgeoisie' in a marxist sense - the bourgeoisie are those who control/own the means of production. So a hollywood plastic surgeon isn't bourgeoisie no matter how rich he is. Proletarians are wage labourers. Proletarians who have money invested are bourgeoisie in marxist terms (by being shareholders).
Outside of marxist readings bourgeoisie is mostly used interchangeably with 'middle class' not 'rich' or upper class.
Boortz neatly confuses the group earning a million dollars a year with the group who expect one day to have a million dollar in assets - as if they are the same people.
I can't speak for Americans but the average price of a house in Sydney is over half a million, and prices continue to rise so I can see why 72% would say the expect to have assets over a million. That doesn't mean they are rich comparatively.
A load of self serving bollocks - either he is super rich or paid to whore himself by the super rich.
There are quite a few specific differences between Marxism as expressed by Karl Marx and the political philosophy and policy practices of the Obama Administration, but then so too were there specific differences between Marxism and Leninism, Stalinism and Maoism, and yet there aren't too many people arguing that the isms
of those who actually obtained and wielded power were not strikingly similar to that of the philosopher.
Since so many people take such strong exception to any claim that Obama is a Marxist or a Socialist, we should all agree that he is an Obamist and that rather than being a stalwart supporter of Socialism or Marxism, he is the figurehead of Obamism which can then be compared to Marxism and Socialism.
The classes that the Obamists are seeking to pit against one another don't match up perfectly with those identified by Marx, but the political process they favor can still easily be described as the promotion of "class warfare."
Boortz may have confused the group earning a million dollars a year with the group who expect one day to have a million dollar in assets, but Obamists haven’t. They know there is a clear difference between the two and yet they want to target them for revenue as if there wasn’t and this is because they also know that the levels of government spending they require to remain in power can’t be funded by “millionaires and billionaires” alone.
But they also have no intention of bleeding billionaires dry either, because if they did that, they would have to rely solely on institutional billionaires like the Labor Unions to fund their campaigns.
One need only participate in A2K to appreciate how inclined Obama supporters already are towards punishing The Rich, although few agree with Fido that the punishment should include hanging them from light poles.
