A top Obama fundraiser and hedge fund manager said: “I’m appalled at the anti-Wall Street rhetoric. It was OK on the campaign but now it’s the real world. I’m surprised that Obama is turning out to be so left-wing. He’s a real class warrior.”
It’s all part of the price of getting Democrat politicians into office. Of course Democrat politicians lie! They have to, in order to get the people who would otherwise be stupid enough to vote Republican to vote Democrat.
This is a perversion of our democratic system. Pioneered by whom?
Bill Clinton. Called “triangulation”. Campaign on the left in the primary, tack hard to the center during the general election, then govern whatever way you want to. The media won’t hold you to your promises the way they will excoriate Republicans for not keeping theirs. …or for keeping theirs, for that matter. Not even Fox News, supposedly unforgivably “right wing”, protects Republican politicians at all.
I’m a little sick of it all.
