"While President Obama's re-election inspires varying degrees of hope among progressives, it has evoked one common sentiment: relief. Democracy may not be reborn, but a living symbol of plutocracy was defeated by the voters on November 6."
It's hard believing so-called progressive editors would publish outrageous rubbish this offensive. Obama matches Romney's anti-populist agenda blow for blow.
They agree on most everything benefitting corporate favorites and rich elites at the expense of all others. They scorn social America. They don't give a damn about people needs. Pretending otherwise is unprincipled, reprehensible, and stupid.
Nonetheless, Nation editors celebrated "exhilarating wins" for Obama and likeminded Democrats. Hail to the party of the rich. It replicates the other rich man's party. America's duopoly calls progressivism a four-letter word.
"We are glad the 1 percent (was) rebuffed at the polls," said Nation editors"."We are glad that progressive politics".made the difference."
Perhaps they meant Venezuela's election instead. In October, people power defeated privilege. Letting Obama lead America's Money Party for another four years assures worse for ordinary people than in term one. It's baked in the cake.
Too bad Nation readers weren't told the truth. Nor regular New York Times adherents. On November 7, its editorial headlined "An Invigorated Second Term," saying:
"Without question, (Obama) intends to build on and improve the significant accomplishments of the last four years".to keep the economy growing."
His first term record might make some despots blush. His economic policies are weapons of mass destruction affecting ordinary people. He's got further mass immiseration in mind for term two. He also plans more war on humanity globally.
Times editors want his mandate used to "broaden his agenda." How much more scorched earth hell can people stand? They'll shortly find out straightaway.
