He now does a GRAND-SLAM expose on the incredible,
in-Your-FACE! CORRUPTION, FRAUD, TREACHERY, and BETRAYAL of President Obama, who we tagged in an earlier comment here at DemNationUSA as
"THE MOST CORRUPT PRESIDENT in US HISTORY", including election thief, treasury-looter, 9-11 Dereliction of Duty, and lies-to-war president George W. Bush; including Warren Harding and the "Teapot Dome Scandal;" including President Grant's failures to oversee the massive kickbacks & graft corruption of his friends in high office.... except for President Bush intentionally quashing _any_ US government response to the threat of terrorists attacks in the long summer leading up to 9-11, and LYING America into two wars of murderous aggression which came as a result of 9-11 (which, in whitewashing, President Obama becomes party to), Obama is now hands-down THE MOST CORRUPT PRESIDENT IN US HISTORY, he is trying to FINALIZE Bush & Cheney's right-wing Republican efforts to make American taxpayers and wage-earners into WAGE-SLAVE PEONS.
Obama's Big SelloutCronyism, nepotism, elitism, anti-democratic corruption, whitewashes of "lies-to-war" and other Cheney-Bush administration gross, criminal abuses of power; and vast socialized, taxpayer-extorted bailouts for the VERY PEOPLE who have been PREACHING "MORAL HAZARD!" and "LET 'em STARVE!" and "let 'em DIE without medical care!" we repeat, President Obama is now, already in only his first year in office, THE MOST CORRUPT PRESIDENT in US HISTORY.
The president has packed his economic team with Wall Street insiders intent on turning the bailout into an all-out giveaway

< What's taken place in the year since Obama won the presidency has turned out to be one of the most dramatic political about-faces in our history. Elected in the midst of a crushing economic crisis brought on by a decade of ORGIASTIC DEREGULATION and UNCHECKED GREED, Obama HAD A clear MANDATE to REIGN IN Wall Street and REMAKE the ENTIRE STRUCTURE of the American economy. What he did instead was ship even his most marginally progressive campaign advisers off to various bureaucratic Siberias, while packing the key economic positions in his White House with the very people who caused the crisis in the first place. This new team of bubble-fattened ex-bankers and laissez-faire intellectuals then proceeded to sell us all out, instituting a massive, trickle-up bailout and systematically gutting regulatory reform from the inside. >
< ....Come November 5th, both [of the Obama campaign's two 'liberal,' populist economic advisors Austan Goolsbee and Karen Kornbluh ] were banished from Obama's inner circle — and replaced with a group of Wall Street bankers. Leading the search for the president's new economic team was his close friend and Harvard Law classmate Michael Froman, a high-ranking executive at Citigroup. During the campaign, Froman had emerged as one of Obama's biggest fundraisers, bundling $200,000 in contributions and introducing the candidate to a host of heavy hitters — chief among them his mentor Bob Rubin, the former co-chairman of Goldman Sachs who served as Treasury secretary under Bill Clinton. Froman had served as chief of staff to Rubin at Treasury, and had followed his boss when Rubin left the Clinton administration to serve as a senior counselor to Citigroup (a massive new financial conglomerate created by deregulatory moves pushed through by Rubin himself).
Incredibly, Froman did not resign from the bank when he went to work for Obama: He remained in the employ of Citigroup for two more months, even as he helped appoint the very people who would shape the future of his own firm. And to help him pick Obama's economic team, Froman brought in none other than Jamie Rubin, a former Clinton diplomat who happens to be Bob Rubin's son. At the time, Jamie's dad was still earning roughly $15 million a year working for Citigroup, which was in the midst of a collapse brought on in part because Rubin had pushed the bank to invest heavily in mortgage-backed CDOs and other risky instruments.
Despite all his lofty Harvard Law school, "Constitutional law expert" rhetoric, president Obama CARES NO MORE for the US Constitution than Dick Cheney does (which is to say, not at all), and indeed Obama's Neo-Con/neo-Confederate economic 'policy advisors' seek to kick America BACKWARDS, to the 1920s and 1930s, when the South was ruled by an elite, ONE-PARTY DICTATORSHIP that could subjugate, terrorize and intimidate opponents at will simply by whipping up lynch-mob fury against outsiders, "carpet-baggers," and "uppity minorities."
Indeed, the major shortcoming of Taibbi's article, if any, is that it does not capture the ANTI-SAFETY-NET biases of the Rubin-Summers "Hamilton Project" crew (see our "pure, distilled evil" video, fellow Neo-Con financial deregulation cheerleader Bill Kristol doing his Right-Wing Republican "concentration camp commandant" act,
scorning American children who will DIE without medical access), or how closely 'the Rubinites' are tied to the Neo-Con war machine, or how RAHM EMANUEL is effectively acting as the head wizard, chairman, and CEO of that Neo-Con war machine/Rubin-Summers-GoddamnSachs-Wall Street massive-financial-corruption alliance.
(note that EXCEPT for the "R" in front of Bill Kristol's name, and the "D" ostensibly in front of the Rubinites' names, they have IDENTICAL AGENDAS, except in years past the Rubinites made a PRETENSE of concern for the social safety net, WHICH THEY NO LONGER MAKE ANY PRETENSE of.
PROOF of this is simplicity itself: besides the Emanuel/Obama BLUDGEONING MURDER of the Public Option health care reform (see our prevoius post); so-called "Democratic" President Obama RE-NOMINATED President Bush's selection for Fed Chairman, BEN BERNANKE, Obama re-nominating Bernanke despite Bernanke's clearly stated desires to DO TO SOCIAL SECURITY, what he and Wall Street have done to the financial markets: make TRILLIONS of dollars of American household wealth VANISH into thin air!)
It is hard to oppose the "More Wars Alliance," when they are backed by billions, upon literally TRILLIONS, of consumer & taxpayer extorted dollars.
The effectiveness of Obama's Neo-Con ("Right-Wing radicals POSING as sane and concerned moderate Democrats") policy advisors in SABOTAGING efforts to actually make a portion of the economy MORE PRODUCTIVE in a stunningly simple chart: The Obama/Emanuel/GoddamnSachs Rubinites' SABOTAGE of more easily accessed health-care for millions of Americans shows the DEATH of the "Public Option" as a health care REFORM policy that would actually PRODUCE _MORE_ health care, under the insane, murderous "STAB 'em stupid voters in the back" arrogance and abject, in-your-face corruption of the Obama/Emanuel/Summers/Geithner/Bernanke/GoddamnSachs/Rubinite extortion crew...
