Compared to George W. Bush, Obama demonstrates W didn’t stand for Worse

Media voices this morning are positively giddy with Obama's extension of tax cuts for the rich. Probably anticipating a hefty Christmas bonus. Today would be a good time to apologize to Debby Downers you vilified in '08 because they cautioned that Barack Obama was not the change you wanted to believe in. I wasn't among them, I didn't have the temerity to rain on everyone's hopeful desperation. Today I have to laugh. LAUGH. We traded in a thieving bumbler for a hypocritical lying bore who's only changed gears on corporate graft, a higher gear. The heist Obama just pulled for America's rich leaves absolutely no question whom he serves. I mean, he can pretend to be thwarted at every turn, the wars, Guantanamo, DADT, but in this case, he's plain shilling for the other side, telling regular Americans this is a good deal for them.

Obama breaks truth to widows: Miners died as Corporate Slaves, get used to it

Not really. He said they died in pursuit of a better life. But since the Coal Companies and other Corporate owners of West Virginia aren't going to actually invest anything in developing some other way for the people who live there to survive, and the people have not nearly enough opportunity to build their own enterprises, it IS a cycle of corporate slavery. 16258
