Challenging Obama’s Anti-Progressivism

by Stephen Lendman, Dissident Voice,  December 7th, 2010

Believing Obama is progressive is like calling a cat a dog. Only the delusional think so. He’s, in fact, hard-right, a neocon, a warrior president, a corporatist pursuing anti-populist policies favoring wealth and privilege, not social justice when more than ever it’s needed.
He’s a fraud, an elitist, chosen years ago, then put on a fast track to power. Big monied interests love him. So do war profiteers and members of America’s aristocracy. He’s one of them.

Only the voting millions who backed him were defrauded. Will they awaken, finally understand, and express their ire publicly more strongly than in mid-term theatrics, throwing out bums for new ones? It’s high time. A year two Obama assessment is coming. Watch for it, parts I and II. A year one analysis can be accessed here and here.
