47. Obama is irrelevant. All "individuals" are. Obama is a creature of a corrupted system
Edited on Fri Jan-21-11 05:56 PM by trayNTP
that only yields lopsided benefits in favor of the wealthy.

The system matters, not Obama.

The media has successful turned Presidents into Weapons of Mass Distraction.

The weak-minded constantly fall into that trap.

Obama knows what should be done, but he will not try to challenge the system. The system wins, Obama is irrelevant. Bush got everything that he wanted when he was President, including the years the Democrats were in charge, therefore, Bush himself is irrelevant.

The system is corrupted. It yields what it is designed to yield.
