Barack Obama PROMISED American voters "CHANGE!" in 2008... and then delivered MORE of Bush's & Cheney's INSANE ECONOMY GUTTING policies, particularly in the persons of Obama's re-nominted Fed Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke... BUSH's PICK!
... and Obama's Treasury Secretary, Timmy "Goddamn Sachs errand boy" Geithner, whom Bush had placed at President & C.E.O. of the Federal Reserve N.Y. Bank branch, before Obama PROMOTED the disatrous, callow, ignorant, and deceitful Geithner from NY Fed Reserve Bank President to Treasury Secretary.
Both Geithner & Bernanke were, and remain, unrepetentant Republicans to this day... for THE TWO MOST POWERFUL economics officials in the troubled American economic landscape, Barack Obama is a blatant liar, he did NOT deliver "Change," he gave us MORE of the SAME - unrepentant right-wing REPUBLICANS, in name & actions!
So - "Who coulda thunk it" - Obama's economic policies are NOT improving America's economy... they are driving our economy FURTHER into the radical Right-Wing ditch of "tax cuts for rich in time of war" ON STEROIDS,
in the form of "no oversight, taxpayer extorted 'BAILOUTS' for fraudulent, millionaire, NY, DC, & multi-national bankers... pink-slips, layoffs, slashed social services, and an attack on our Social Safety net" for American working families.
Don't take OUR word for it:
Jane Hamsher's November _2009_ predication: Obama's DISATROUS right-wing economic policies would lead to:
AP Poll: New Low for Obama's Handling of EconomyGolddamn-Sachs de facto front-man & "Economic Hit Man" Barack Obama
Eleven weeks before the Nov. 2 balloting, just 41 percent of those surveyed approve of the president's performance on the economy, down from 44 percent in April, while 56 percent disapprove. And 61 percent say the economy has gotten worse or stayed the same on Obama's watch.
probably doesn't even realize that, on behalf of his GS "donors" and handlers,
that he is pushing the very same despised-by-Americans Bush-Cheney-GOP economic policies,
that propeled his campaign into the White House in 2008, by millions of Americans seeking "Change."
AFP photographer Paul Loeb catches the arrogant look of "the new Bush" -
"I'll give blank-check, no oversight BAILOUTS to billionaire New York bankers,
without a DROP of accounting or oversight, just like Bush gave
TAX CUTS FOR RICH during TIME of WAR... and no one can stop me!"
new - update: FireDogLake.com captures Obama's FRAUD: Obama giving SPEECHES that he is AGAINST Republicans trying to WRECK Social Security... AFTER Obama picked a blatantly ANTI- Social Security Republican for his, Obama's, "Social Security 'REFORM' commission."
If Obama Opposes Ryan’s Social Security Plan, Why Did He Appoint Him to the Catfood Commission?"Why?" indeed... Because Barack Obama is a LIAR and a FRAUD who is in-the-pocket, wholly owned, by the despicable Goddamn-Sachs treasury looters lobby.
[note: Jane Hamsher short-hands "cat food commission" for Obama's "GUT SOCIAL SECURITY" commission; seniors would be forced to purchase & eat catfood, if the treacherous Obama is able to GUT Social Security on behalf of his Goddamn-Sachs, New York, DC, Israel, and multi-national bankers & billionaires.]

President Obama devoted his weekly radio address today to Social Security, saying the Republicans were “pushing to make privatizing Social Security a key part of their legislative agenda if they win a majority in Congress this fall.”
Per the AP:
Democrats have been able to seize on the issue because of a proposal by Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the top Republican on the House Budget Committee, that would allow younger people to put Social Security money into personal accounts.Ryan’s idea is similar to a proposal pushed unsuccessfully by former President George W. Bush. It’s not been endorsed by party leaders and has attracted only a small number of GOP co-sponsors.If Obama thinks Ryan’s privatization plan is such a bad idea, why did he appoint Ryan to the 18 member Catfood Commission tasked with dealing with Social Security? In fact, why did he stack the commission with privatizers and budget hawks in the first place?
After spending all of 2008 POSING as a "Liberal Democrat," Obama is now TRYING to HELP GS, the bankers, and Republicans ATTACK and DISMANTLE Social Security... while brazenly pretending otherwise!
Cheap words... big lies. Obama's video "Repubicans want to trash Social Security" comments, below, belie his PUTTING ANTI- Social Security Repubs on his Social Security 'reform' commission!
