You know at some point people might get wise to the fact that Obama is the most powerful political figure in the world, and he does have options beyond being a corporate tool who lets his campaign manager rearrange the national lawn furniture.
I guess it’s time to fire up the “What Obama Could Do Now” series again:
- Question: What Things Can Obama Do Now?
- Bill Black: What Obama Could Do Now
- Alan Grayson: What Obama Could Do Now
- Cynthia Kouril: What Obama Can Do Now
- Lloyd Chapman: What Obama Could Do Now
- Glenn Greenwald: What Obama Could Do Now
- James Galbraith: What Obama Could Do Now
- Jon Walker: What Obama Could Do Now
The White House does not seem to be able to conceive of actual governance as a viable option, and appear to be counting on the fact that Republicans are so crazy that if they don’t piss off elites they can cruise to victory in 2012 by flim-flamming the public with a series of PR stunts, even in the midst of soaring unemployment.
After watching the Iowa Republican debate devolve into an argument over whether aborting innocent fetuses conceived in rape means victimizing them twice, I’m afraid they might well be right.
but, hey... there are still quite a few people out there who can't deal with the fact that a democratic president, particularly one who was elected to save us all from some of the worst, most excessive and outrageous abuses of presidential power in our lifetimes, has turned out to be a wolf in sheep's clothing... i know the truth is hard to face... i've had to do a lot of it over my nearly 64 years, but continuing to stick your head in the sand and pretend that we've got somebody at the top who is really on our side, is nothing less than pathetic at a time when the health and well-being of virtually the entire globe is at stake...
