On Obama And Lybia

Soooooooo, Obama doesn't close Gitmo because there's nowhere else to put the terrorists, and Obama copies Bush's policy of regime change in Lybia (granted with different style of execution). All that's left is for Obama to bow down to G.W. Bush. Why not? Obama bowed down to the Saudis and Chinese, Obama can bow down to G.W. Bush too.

Ah but that's how it works. When a liberal does something, well isn't it so wonderful? And when a conservative does the exact same thing, how horrible he is!

Actually plenty of liberals criticize Obama/Democrats, maybe not so much in the MSM, but certainly in everyday life, in the blogosphere, vlogosphere, even on talk radio, but you obviously do not watch/read/listen to much from the other side of the aisle.

I am "left of center" (actually more liberal-libertarian) but hardly Obama's biggest fan. Barack Obama is a pretty boy actor, a charismatic orator, but IMO, not much of a leader or statesman. (And frankly his charismatic speaking abilities are starting to strain...) He seems like a perfectly likable gentleman, but that does not make him a great leader. An improvement on Bush? I say so, but not by much. (Though an improvement on Bush is not saying much.)

Really Obama is another puppet. Like every US president since Reconstruction, a puppet of corporate business interests.

ADDENDUM: When I said "every US president since Reconstruction" I neglected to mention the indisputable exception of Franklin Delano Roosevelt (the "good Roosevelt"), the probable exception of Dwight Eisenhower, and the possible exceptions of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and James Earl Carter. But every other president after Andrew Johnson has been (more or less) a puppet of corporate business interests (and "special interests" such as the labor unions, NRA, and the Zionist Lobby more recently), including Reagan, both Bushes, Clinton, and Obama.

This is the future of American democracy folks. Neither a genuine socialist like Ralph Nader, nor a genuine free-market capitalist like Ron Paul will never win the nomination of a major party. A corporatist (corporate socialist) such as Clinton, Bush, McCain, Obama, Palin, Gingrich, etc. on the other hand...
