      I think it would be more effective, the reactionary cryfest we have now is not exactly a movement. We want to blame the president for what 30 years has wrought. He will be gone, in time, one way or another. We will still be frustrated, undisciplined and unfocused.

        Obama kept in place many of the same policies, many of the same top Banksters; Geithner, Summers, Bernake, who got us into this mess. He not only embraced the 30 years of policy that got us here (including free trade), but he also strengthened some of those positions.
