Obama and the Chamber

Rate: 3 Flag

Krugman doesn’t buy into this competitiveness stuff, that Obama’s been pushing. It sounds to me like Obama is pushing, the old globaloney/race to bottom, model of the Freidmans’ — Thomas and Milton. Of which the “exemplary results” thus far have been the destruction of the industrial base of this country and the concomitant withering away of the middle class. Then, like manna from heaven, Obama puts the onus on corporate “America” to create more jobs in the US? Obama is certainly imbibing some very interesting Kool-aid, it must be an old Chicago/Daley family drink.

Obama appears to be trying to tack on, to the failed junk economics of globaloney, some of the economic principles of the American automobile pioneer Henry Ford. But since “American” corporations no longer have any affinity — or allegiance — to this country; I’d say, that it is more than likely, to simply fall upon deaf ears. Henry Ford didn’t attend the University of Chicago Economics Department, to my knowledge, and it is this kind of autistic approach, that corporate America has been taking to the “science” of their myopic economic thinking.

The spoonfuls of sugar, bear hugs, and sweet nothings that Obama has proffered to the neoliberal Chamber — in this humble observer’s opinion — won’t add up to much. But who knows, perhaps that’s what the intent was, to keep a continuity between the ancien regime of George Bush, and the Obama administration; while feigning a certain “concern” for the plebs. For Obama’s sake I hope that’s what the point was, otherwise the man has been hopelessly deluded, into thinking that the people in the Chamber, are actually flexible enough to reassess their seemingly impenetrable dogma. However, I certainly won’t be one to call it surprising, when the Jeffrey Immelt led panel, comes back with the recommendation, to offshore and outsource actual physical Americans; in order to propel a “sound”, “American” economic agenda “forward”.

Frankly I find it totally amazing that the liberal section of the USA has swallowed Obama as some sort of leader into an open and progressive democratic future. None of his election promises have resulted in anything more than a continuation of G.W.Bush's agenda and intensified by legal tightening up towards totalitarian control of the country giving him powers to imprison and execute anybody within and outside the country on mere suspicion and accusation. His economic and financial actions have done nothing to slow down, not to speak of reversal, of the economic and financial thuggery of those sectors of the country who show no concern whatsoever for the miseries of the middle and lower classes and his military operations in the useless wars continue to suck the life out of those basic governmental programs necessary to the basic maintenance and life of the country. To say he is a total failure as a leader is to massively understate the damage he is doing the country and the Republican clowns and nincompoops recently sent in to vandalize the country are the only things that give him any status as being not quite that nuts, but that's not particularly encouraging. The current government is straight out of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

I think a lot of folks have woken up in two years Jan... But then again, Obama does still seem to have his ironclad supporters.
Some White House insiders reported last year that Obama was flabbergasted at the way his polling dropped. He tended to believe all the hype his press corps was putting out - that he was still the wunder kind that everyone was adulating during the campaign.
Obama has given the Chamber and its members practically everything they could ever want and yet they are never satisfied so Obama pledges to give them more. Say good bye to social security as we know it and who knows what else.

Obama makes Reagan look like a Leftist.
AP,
Thanks for the comment and droppin' by!
I would first like to run it by someone of Rw005 or even your own political acumen Sean but I do not believe any president has ever even come close to the extent that the Obamanation misrepresented himself in both the primary's and the elections. When I hear college students and black people still supporting him with the same messianic fervor they did when he first appeared on the scene I have to question Americas criteria for voting eligibility.
