    He should of been talking this way 6 years ago.  Instead he fully, enthusiastically embraced Wall Street and inequality.

    President Obama empowered corporatists and Wall Street operators throughout his entire administration.  He empowered the likes of Rahm Emmanuel, Jack Lew,  Timothy Geithner and Lawrence Summers.  He has a far lower rate in the pursuit of corporate criminals than even George W. Bush.

    No amount of tough talk in the last couple of years of his administration will change the reality that he not only protected the forces of inequality, but actively worked to buttress and reinforce them.  And in the process, squandered a real opportunity after the economic meltdown of enacting some legitimate change.

    That is his real, shameful, legacy.

    What was wrong under Republicans is still wrong under Democrats.
