So sad, but so true. Obama’s presidency reminds me of the old myth that, once females made their way into the executive suites of America, they would have more heart for the employees than the male executives had. What was overlooked was that the women couldn’t get become executives without being put there by the good old boys and only greedy, heartless toadies could make the grade. Same thing with politics: Obama was chosen by corporate shills to be a corporate shill. The downtrodden will continue to be trodden upon.
P.S. I voted for him in hope that he’d turn out to have the guts to really change things, but each day convinces me more that I should have just sat out the election.

I do not think this is funny putting a white face on a black man, kind of like the minstral days of old.
Obama inherited problems and a lot of people knew McCain would not get elected because of the economy and Palin her matra was we need less government.
Sorry less government got us into the Wall Street mess, among other problems.

This hits the spot. Obama’s job is to be a smiley face and give false hope as the ground is dug out from beneath the feet of the middle class. The American way of life is being destroyed—Obama is doing nothing but giving nice speeches, wearing nice suits. And don’t bother looking to Michelle “let them wear $540 sneakers” Antoinette. They’re props. Obama is the elite banksters’ bitch. It’s that simple.

Almost, not quite. But the “happy face” works as idea.
