15. Hopefully this will be a lesson to Obama OUTSIDE the debate context

 

He has been entirely TOO POLITE on issues such as (i) health case - no public option??? - instead, what we get is a blow job for the insurance companies (which is still better than what we have now) (ii) no help for underwater mortgages?? (iii) no convictions for anyone on Wall St./Wall St. generally - several other issues. Hopefully this debate will SEAR THIS LESSON INTO HIS MEMORY AND CONSCIOUSNESS. Sometimes the way Obama deals with Republicans seems more like a battered wife trying to get her husband to love her.

Everyone should read Matt Taibbi's book:

http://www.amazon.com/Griftopia-Machines-Vampire-Breaking-America/dp/0385529953/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1349895496&sr=1-2&keywords=vampire+squid

The Left/Middle Class has a LONG way to go to break the grip of the Grifters on America. We need someone - maybe not stylistically like Alan Grayson - but someone who can keep demanding justice and action - who can keep stating the truth, remain assertive and keep demanding change.
