When it comes to lame duck presidents, the current resident of the White House will most assuredly be listed among the lamest of the lame. President Obama did not have a great number of enthusiastic allies during his first term (other than corporate moderate Republicans and corporate conservative Democrats who were willing to put up with anything in order to maintain their Washington connections) and now that the bogeyman of another Republican president is out of the way, Barack Obama just doesn’t have that many people flying in formation at his sides.
Everyone in their right mind should by now realize that Obama is simply a better looking Bob Dole, and is only mistaken for a progressive because folks assumed a black politician from Chicago had to be a liberal Democrat. Instead the product delivered was every corporate lobbyist’s wet dream. After a decade of living in the wilderness, the Democratic corporate shills were treated to a shower of gold undoubtedly orchestrated by the idiot boy mayor of Chicago. Finally, corporate Dems figured out how to cheat the American people in a way that would make any GOP lobbyist proud. Instead of taking it off the top from the military, these Democratic crooks decided to skim from monies which should have been used for the health and welfare of the American people these Democrats were supposed to represent. Corrupt Democrats decided to live off the pain, the suffering, and the sickness of their fellow citizens. There is undoubtedly a new ring in hell awaiting these perverted puppies.
Certainly the banks and the for-profit health industry will take good care of the gentleman from Illinois once he leaves the Oval Office. After all, he presided over the greatest diversion of public funds into private hands in the history of the world. Obamacare is basically a tax on U.S. citizens which instead of being collected for the U.S. treasury is being diverted into private coffers. Trillions of dollars which should be administered through the U.S. Treasury are going into the pockets of the same Wall Street bankers who not only have destroyed the economy but are on a religious mission to return the American people to a wage slave economy.
Let’s face it, there probably isn’t a Democrat in Washington who now supports Obama unless they are receiving sizable monies from Obama’s corporate partners.
Barack Obama was probably the most successful Judas goat of all time.
Joe Biden is now running for President in 2016 and it would probably do Mr. Obama a world of good just to stay out of his way. During Biden’s campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination his proposals on healthcare, although not calling for universal care, would have led this country down a path where universal care would have been inevitable. Instead we are left with Obamacare which strengthens the hand of the criminal for-profit insurers. Biden is certainly no FDR but Barack makes Joe look like the second coming of Eugene V. Debbs.
For the next few years the Democrats will be hitching their wagons to Joe Biden’s star; senators, congressmen, everyone; and President Obama will be allowed to fashion his legacy alone. Obama’s final legacy will undoubtedly involve many more dollars being directed towards Chicago, so at least he’ll be consistent unto the end.
