  •  Obama is not on the people's side. (6+ / 0-)

    Don't be naive. If he were, he would not have been nominated by either of the two right wings of America's one-party system.

    From Gore Vidal:

    There is only one party in the United States, the Property Party...and it has two right wings: Republican and Democrat. Republicans are a bit stupider, more rigid, more doctrinaire in their laissez-faire capitalism than the Democrats, who are cuter, prettier, a bit more corrupt—until recently... and more willing than the Republicans to make small adjustments when the poor, the black, the anti-imperialists get out of hand. But, essentially, there is no difference between the two parties.
