Monday, September 19, 2011Or so everybody seems to think. Pardon me for being cynical, but I believe this more likely explanation is that Obama is just saying all of these things to rally his base and try to get re-elected. Once he is, I suspect he'll go right back to pursuing the neoliberal policies he was pushing before. You know, like every other Democratic president has done over the last generation.
It's frustrating that it's so difficult for people to realize that most candidates for national office, Democratic OR Republican, campaign to their left and govern to their right. We need to start holding these people accountable after they're elected. I don't care what Obama says - I care what he's done.
