The two Baracks

President Obama rolled out the major themes of his reelection bid in a speech in which he sought to capture public concern about rising economic inequality and wrap his policies in a call for a "fair shot" for America's middle class.

Growing inequality "is the defining issue of our time," Obama said in a nearly hourlong address here Tuesday. "This is a make-or-break moment for the middle class, and all those who are fighting to get into the middle class. At stake is whether this will be a country where working people can earn enough to raise a family, build a modest savings, own a home and secure their retirement."

Don't you just hate it when you're the President, you take orders from the banksters and fight against a policy (Glass-Steagall) which would prevent them from robbing us blind, and they do just that? Don't you just hate it when that happens?

This just goes to show that, as I pointed out some time ago, that Obama's speeches are essentially smokescreens behind which he carries out his agenda on behalf of London. It's as if there are two Barack Obamas: public and real. Pay no attention to his words, and just watch what he does.
