a.) BLATANTLY CORRUPT... or
b.) he is FEARFUL... which is to say, "He is _cowering_ from their wrath."
Once again Obama's pathetic "leadership" qualities are easily hightlighted merely by comparing him to President Lincoln - who famously FIRED his generals when they had a "case of the slows" - in a far more deadly & high-risk environment, for failing to hammer at deadly powerful Confederate armies in the early, dismal, bloody years of the Civil War.
Really, in the 17 months since Barack Obama has become president, WHAT has he ACCOMPLISHED... besides giving SOME PORTION of TRILLIONS of taxpayer extorted "bailouts" dollars to the very NY, DC, & international banksters who WRECKED OUR ECONOMY in the first place, and whom he now COWERS before? Saying "there would be more unemployment if a Republican were president" is SMALL CONSOLATION to those who have lost their jobs SINCE Obama became president!

Arianna Huffington: Fear Factor: What's Keeping the President From Picking the Best Person to Protect Consumers?Good luck with that last hope, Arianna! Obama is SO CONTROLLED by his treacherous Emanuel, (Rubin), Summers, Gensler, Geithner, (et al) Goddamn-Sachs radical Right-Wing Neo-Cons (and AIPAC, Israel-lobby war-lusting warmongers), that he is now MORE of a clueless "bubble boy" that George W. Bush.

Picking Elizabeth Warren to lead the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a no-brainer. So why isn't the White House rushing to nominate her? In a word: fear. The same fear-based approach that caused the administration to throw Shirley Sherrod under the bus last week is once again rearing its head in the decision-making process over Warren. This time, it's not the ire of Glenn Beck that has Team Obama's backbone turning to mush -- it's the fear of angering the bankers by appointing a consumer advocate who might actually advocate for consumers (the same consumers who, in their role as taxpayers, have spent hundreds of billions bailing the bankers out).
Obama once said of the Bush years: "If we continue to make decisions from within a climate of fear, we will make more mistakes." Let's hope Shirley Sherrod is his administration's last fear-driven mistake.
Obama's TALKS about "creating jobs for Americans".... even as he IGNORES the economic devastation - and thousands of lost jobs -caused by the BP oil blowout.
