74. You are exactly right. I am beginning to think that our president is not much more

than a figurehead position. The economic structure and intelligence services are the same as they have been for a decade. I wouldnt doubt that other agencies are also the same basic structure. This doesnt mean that Pres Obama doesnt shape some policy but take the NDAA and indefinite detention. He seemed to be to be honestly against it but couldnt seen to change it. Does his continued renewal of the Patriot Act mean he favors it or hasnt the power to change it?

As I have said before, I think when he got into office (I actually believe it may have happened before he got into office) he was told that the Military-Intellegence-Complex had a great spy machinery working to keep America safe and if he appointed some damn liberal Democrat to run it, it would turn into a mess and endanger the country.
