Facing health-care oblivion, the left finally wonders: “Who really is Barack Obama?”
Good question. If you accepted the formulation made by Kathleen Parker, www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=33125"> stalwart and standard-bearing conservative , you’d think he was a “pragmatist” in “socialist times” — a smooth operator beholden to none, acting decisively and in accordance with what the “times” demand. Namely, socialism.
How’s that pragmatic socialist thing working out for the Left?
Well, let’s just say that being mentioned in the same breath as **** Cheney www.gregpalast.com/obama-on-drugs-98-cheney/"> isn’t quite the change BO would be looking for . Enter Greg Palast, who — after lambasting Obama for striking a secret deal with pharmaceutical companies that would, by his calculations, save a whopping 2% on the drugs Americans buy — wonders:
What else went down in Obama’s drug deal? To find out, I called C-SPAN to get a copy of the videotape of the meeting with the drug companies. I was surprised to find they didn’t have such a tape despite the President’s campaign promise, www.youtube.com/watch?v=Api4fUziAnI"> right there on CNN in January 2008 , “These negotiations will be on C-SPAN.”
This puzzled me. When **** Cheney was caught having secret meetings with oil companies to discuss Bush’s Energy Bill, we denounced the hugger-muggers as a case of foxes in the henhouse.
Cheney’s secret meetings with lobbyists and industry bigshots were creepy and nasty and evil.
But the Obama crew’s secret meetings with lobbyists and industry bigshots were, the President assures us, in the public interest.
We know Cheney’s secret confabs were shady and corrupt because Cheney scowled out the side of his mouth.
Obama grins in your face.
See the difference?
Gosh, Raymond, I'm surprised you didn't go into your usual birther arguments.
Don't you want to talk about why Obama isn't really a U.S. citizen?
