The jury is in. This is going to be a Clinton/Obama Presidency (in that order). The appointments are all DLC Clinton machine right wing dems, and that just ain't good enough. And it CERTAINLY isn't what Obama promised.
For openers, it's now clear that Middle Eastern diplomacy isn't even on the table, plus the capstone of Obama's domestic promises (taxing the elites) is now being procrastinated for SEVERAL YEARS -- in spite of dire warnings of many economists who say that to extend this endless Christmas for the elites will be suicidal to our Bush-bankrupted economy.
It's also imperative to remember that BOTH Clinton and Bush worked to redefine what would have been very right wing eight years ago into the alleged "centrists" of 2008. Indeed, the 2006 Congress of dem traitors were puked out by the DLC Clinton machine. Conversely, the so called “progressives” of 2008 were merely the centrists of year 2000.
Is the Clinton Presidency (oops, I mean the Clinton/Obama Presidency) going to be a "lesser of the evils" when compared to the corporative fascism and religious fanaticism of the Bush horror show years?
Undoubtedly yes . . . but probably not much. Hey, Obama's even keeping Gates for Secretary of Defense. Naturally there are all kinds of rationalizations for keeping a George Bush appointment (remember, Obama said he would immediately change ALL of Bush's decisions), but it's now heartbreakingly obvious that Obama has no intention of honoring the multiple promises he made during both the primaries and Presidential campaign.
Indeed, he has already locked us to the dead and rotting past we were so fearful could only come from John McCain.
In short we have been snookered again. Obama's watch word was "change", but so far it’s wall to wall status quo. President Status Quo Obama.
So, back to our ONE party dem/pug political system. Back to having our international policy being dictated by recycled neocons, i.e., being a tail wagged by the Israeli lunatic fringe right wing (who the Clinton's have been licking the boots of for decades). And back to having basically our ENTIRE GOVERNMENT suck up to national/international elites.
