34. Yes, Obama the man who fights and fights and fights for the

Middle Class. Except, in reality, he doesn't fight for us. He occasionally mentions us in his glorious speeches.

But when the ACa was in the planning stages, he pretended to be all "separation of powers." As President "I can't talk about it - it is up to Congress." Never once did he even attempt to use his bully pulpit - nor did he feel like mentioning the public option.

Then we come to find out that Rahm was in the basement of the WH, (or down the block from the WH,) meeting with Wellpoint people and other health insurance execs writing up a bill that served industry.

The following spring the BP oil leak happened. And it basically wiped out an entire eco system. Obama allowed the BP people to take charge of it, and saw to it that the media was blocked from even reporting on it.

Fukushima happened a year later, and then Obama's response was to see to it that the EPA radiation monitoring stations shut down, so those of us on the West Coast had to rely on the very occasional reports from indie labs in New England! While we were being blanketed with radiation.

This President still believes that nuclear power is a "safe" and "clean" energy source, with some 55+ billions plus promised to go to his buddies in the Big Nuke plant industry. That way we can have a Fukushima of our own.

Meanwhile his Big Banking appointments helped the Upper One Percent swindle some fifteen to sixteen trillions of dollars out of the system, via the Geithner/Bernanke transfers (Loans, these transfers were called.) A heist of the middle class's wealth transferred to the rich. And experts now say some 3.7 to 4.7 trillions of dollars of those loans will never be paid back - which is why we now need the Social Security and MediCare cuts!

I say get it out of the hide of the Big Banks, and Senator Warren seems to feel that way too. But those who control the Dem Party will make sure she doesn't get too far.
