With approval ratings dropping fast, Obama struck a populist tone last week while going after those mean nasty bankers. Somehow, the fact that he has thrown the American taxpayer under the bus so those pricks at Goldman Sachs could run us all over several dozen times didn’t seem to come up in his comments. Although many refuse to see it, this president is selling us out as fast as those that preceded him. Even on the surface, this gesture is a joke. He proposes to claw-back $90B over ten years even as the Wall Street bonuses will top $145B this year alone. I am personally insulted that Washington (this applies to the president and both parties) thinks they can feed me this bullshit. But I am more disappointed that so many fellow citizens (blinded by party loyalty?) actually eat it up. The politicians and the banksters are going to keep feeding us big plates of bullshit as long as people keep coming to the table for more. If you are one of those happy people that just finished your first helping of false hope with a big smile on your face, please focus for a few minutes while Dylan gives you some background and Elizabeth Warren spells it out for you . . .
