Anyone with half a brain knows Obama is the empty suit, unless they're an Obama apologist.
Obama bailed out the so-called wealthy 1% because that includes private bankers that made bad bets and he demanded the taxpayer get them out from under those bad bets. The big lie was that if the banks fail we all fail. It succeeded. Now some of people who paid to bail those bankers out lost their homes because they were out of work, who worked all their lives for their homes. They can't pay their property tax anymore so they have their home taken away. That is not good govt either.
Meanwhile a trillion dollars was lost in world's equity markets. That's a fact. The answer is more austerity with more taxes. That's not good govt either.
And the same wars continue, when plenty in the military want to come home.
These deceivers that keep becoming our presidents—the Bushes, the Clintons... the Obamas. The whole nation is being militarized along with corporatist economics. It's fascism. Nothing changes.
