"Maybe it's our fault, for thinking he was different."

 

Obama's Big Sellout: Rolling Stone Magazine

 

 

 

Fellow Fools,

 

Fact: This comes from one of the most liberal publications you could ever read.

 

Opinion: When those that carry your water are not happy with you there is trouble brewing.

Much like Alan Greenspan, a staggeringly incompetent economic forecaster who was worshipped by four decades of politicians because he once dated Barbara Walters

Good find Cato.

Re-read my post and it came across as sarcastic to me. That was not my intention. Nice article Cato I enjoyed reading it.

While I like RS and subscribe, it's a pretty whinty article.  That Obama isn't swinging all the way left is what liberals are mad about.  Because politics ignores the middle, and focuses on left and right, most of us feel out in the cold.  We need to redouble our efforts to let the extremists in both parties know they are not in charge and Obama is our best hope along with voting against party establishment Congress people this fall. 

If Obama fails it is because we as a public are too stupid and lazy to do the things necessary.  In that case, good luck dealing with another decade of despair and falling standard of living.

The conflicts of interest are amazing but still not surprising.  It's government as usual.  It's the sort of thing that happened before Obama and that will happen after Obama as well.  He is no better or worse than other politicians.  But Obama did promise that he would be different.

Good statement and probably one of the most overlooked problems in our society.

Still arguing left-right politics? Divided and conquered, you fools be. That anyone is remotely surprised by the 'actions' of this glorified sock puppet favoring the banks, and not the people, is the very definition of insanity. Expectation of a different outcome through the same process that produces failure, continually. Both left and right are in the business of redistributing your wealth to the rich, reverse-Robinhood style.

The president can be black or white, male or female, donkey or elephant, or a talking hologram on the screen. Any which way, you get screwed. For how much longer will we exist under the guise of the same great nation that our constitution was written for?

We will continue because it is mostly downhill from here. Years ago I lived and worked outside the US for a few years. Had some good times and some bad and ugly too. In fact they basically canceled each other out; never the less, when I got back I pulled over, got out of the near dead car, kissed the asphalt, cried like a little bitch, and never left again.......... the best thing we can possibly do .... cowboy-up and work with what we've got.

I would like to start a movement to nominate the HypnoToad for president.

It is difficult to tell whether you have a president who is elected because he feels a deep need to serve the people of the nation or a president who feels the deep need to rip off the people of the nation - until after he is in office.  It appears that we have once again elected the latter.  I suggest this out of the firm conviction that Obama is intelligent enough not to fall into the third and possibly the worst category - a president who is too stupid to realize that he is being used by those around him.

Sites like TMF are creating a new side to this equation.  This is one place of many where intelligent people can meet, discuss, pass along information, and perhaps begin to make a difference.  One person cannot "Cowboy-up and work with what you have."  Together, we can be unstoppable - but first we MUST know that there are enough of us to actually do something. 

Lead on, Caterpillar!  You are not alone, not by a long shot, and I DO know that there is damage to be done by those limosine liberals who want to soothe their consciences with my savings and the savings of generations to come.

This is the second Rolling Stones article that I know of which dealt with government finance and that not been complimentary to the administration.  Fortunately for President Obama's team, I would guess that most people buy Rolling Stones for the pictures and those who could read probably didn't make it past the first paragraph.  And the very few that made it through the whole article only took away from it that the government is corrupt, missing the financial implications.  With these two articles, the Rolling Stones has now surpassed the NY Times for financial reporting.

Obama is just 1 of 90% of the politicians that need to be thrown out of office.  With the annulment of McCain Feingold, our only hope is to implement term limits.  Our system is broke and we need to bring back statemen, not politicians.  IMO we are doomed.  The odds of any meaningful change breaking up the duopoly are slim.

There may be some hope for our country in 2010.  As the political class starts working hard to avoid the unemployment lines, they might ignore the country long enough to allow a recovery to begin.
