153. Is that Carter statement in print or video anywhere?
Thom Hartmann has said on his show that when Clinton took office Greenspan sat him down and told him how things really work there and that's why Clinton campaigned as a progressive then governed as a moderate at best. I haven't been able to find that one anywhere.

Would love to know more about this. And would love to know why someone doesn't step up and speak out about it more fully. If this is true it needs to be shouted out no matter what the danger is to the person doing the shouting. If I were president I would hold a live news conference and say what was going on and who's really running the show. It's too important not to, no matter what the cost to one's self.

I keep wondering if it's promises or threats that make Obama keep moving to the right and appointing all these corporatists into key positions. Or maybe he's just content knowing no matter what he does he's going to have a lifetime pension and be making plenty of money on speaking engagements and books when he retires.
