9. Sure, he says everything in the world that sounds good.
Nothing like Bush? Why didn't the Bush tax cuts get axed during the democratic majority? Did it even come up? Is that all it takes for people to believe in him, for him to say he "wants to do something"? He's almost as big of a puppet for the rich as Bush was. Has the military budget been trimmed? Just as much money is funneling up to the military industrial complex as before. He never had any intention of cutting military spending, or even trying. End the wars? Not only did they not get ended, he started bombing other countries also and ramped up Afghanistan. Has education funding increased? Have taxes? We have new corporate welfare disasters. We have the poor rotting in the streets. What significant changes have been made? Sure, he's done a few minor things to placate us, just like Bush did a few tiny things we are all proud of, like expanding AIDS research and treatment, and No Child Left behind. But as a whole, Bush's and Obama's presidencies have both been one corporate welfare disaster after another while the poor rot, the schools fail and tax rates stay the same.
