I honest to God believe Obama was planned. The nasty plutocrats got together at some Skull and Bones meeting and decided to find some desperate, power hungry guy who would look good to liberals and get him to run for President on a platform of change, tell them everything they wanted to hear, knowing full well they would embrace him and ignore the signs that were there all along. In public, the neocons fought him, created the tea party to hate him, riled up everyone to think they were against him, then laughed all the way to the bank. He’s been worse than Bush on just about everything except maybe gay marriage, but because of issues like gay marriage and the fact he told us all what we wanted to hear, we let him get away with it. This is what choosing the lesser of two evils looks like, folks. Get used to it. We were played and from this vantage point, they won.
Those theories are entertaining, aren’t they? More fun for the brain than accepting that it’s all big money, TVQ and empty posturing on both sides. (Your “About” page was terrific btw.)
But big money is part of the same theory. That’s the point: money and power consolidated.
Well, by “big money” I meant just trying to buy the results you want, not that the parties involved have a capacity for complex planning.
