    "Obama is an errand boy sent by Wall Street and the corporate elite to collect a bill"
    The Party Line – July 8, 2011: A Broadside? That’s Rich
    By: Gregg Levine
    July 8, 2011

    That Obama ran with the Bush bailout of the banks, demanding nothing in return, while shorting his own stimulus package and marginalizing the voices that clamored for pump-priming and accountability—failing to a) produce enough jobs, while b) trying to sell the “how much worse it would have been” argument, and c) holding no one accountable—sent a message that if Obama was on a sinking ship with too few life boats, it would be Wall Street first, not women and children. . . or any of the other inhabitants of Main Street. Obama may have started as a poor kid from Hawaii, but he has cemented himself in many Americans’ minds as just another eastern elite.

    I never expected a hero or a real progressive when I voted for Obama in 2008, but I expected some kind of leader. I hoped that, though not my idea of a liberal, Obama was smart, would see what the great crisis of our time demanded, and would rise—at least in part—to the occasion.

    Obama might think he has done that. Obama might think he is a leader, or if not quite that, at least a transcendent, post-partisan facilitator, but, if I may borrow from Apocalypse Now, Obama is neither. He is an errand boy, sent by grocery clerks—in this case, Wall Street and the corporate elite—to collect a bill.

    What’s on that bill? Yes, there is real money—in the trillions. Perhaps Obama’s own downfall, too. (How ironic.) Quite possibly, the bill also demands the destruction of the Democratic Party, and even more likely, the destruction of the social safety net that Democrats have built and defended for over two generations. That’s what Team Obama has put on the table.

    Well....Obama has helped them out alot more than the stupid socialists that thought he was in their court. Serves them right for believing that anyone who was for Quanitative Easing like Bush and who was backed to the hilt by Goldman Sachs could be anything but a little lapdog for corporate collectivism. They are wrong Obama is a Republican. what they can't see is that they are all on the same team.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    And as long as Republican's don't cave on the debt ceiling, Ma and Pa's kids might have a future.
