Obama gives up the fake "hope and change" act ... and adopts the neocon FEAR playbook
Well, it is now clear that Obama did none of those things, and our country does have a hangover. The bailouts and hand-holding of Wall Street has continued, without any help for Main Street. None of the biggest financial fatcats who committed criminal fraud have been brought to justice.
We've gotten in yet another senseless war in Libya. The TSA, Homeland Security and other government agencies are becoming more repressive than ever.
Many have accused Obama of being Bush's third term. Even McClatchy asks whether Obama is morphing into Bush.
Obama can't sell hope anymore. So he's switched to the Neocon fear card.
After the Honeymoon is Over
When the honeymoon between the voters and Obama is over, people will judge him on who he picks to lead his cabinet and what he actually does.
After the honeymoon is over, the only questions will be whether Obama:
•Protected our liberty and restored the Constitution and the rule of law
•Restored the balance of power
•Kept us out of imperial wars
•Stopped the looting of our treasury and pockets ...
Whether or not Obama does these things - and not whether he administers the hope drug - is the question.
Unless the fundamental tyranny, injustice, imperialism and economic foolishness are addressed, then America will have one heck of a hangover when the drug wears off.
