The Wisconsin assembly passed Gov. Walker’s draconian union-busting bill so now it’s on to the Wisconsin senate where the missing 14 Democratic senators factor heavily into the equation. Meanwhile, President Obama apparently found that pair of comfortable shoes and slipped them on so that he and his family could dance the night away in the royal court as the jesters entertained the royal family to the best of their limited abilities. While Gov. Walker and his billionaire sugar daddy worked out ways to overcome their latest little PR setback, it’s good to know that our “progressive” president was hard at work looking out for the worker’s right to collective bargaining, like he promised back in 2007. I guess Walker and Koch would certainly consider Obama one of their own.
“The Wisconsin Assembly early Friday passed a bill that would strip most public workers of their collective bargaining rights — the first significant action on the new Republican governor’s plan.” MSNBC
Curious isn’t it? Walker admits that he and his staff thought about using agent provocateurs to incite violence at the Madison protests and our good Peace Prize “winning” president has nothing to say about the matter? According to Gov. Walker himself, the only reason they backed away from using such a plan was because, at least in his mind, they were winning on the PR front, which begs the questions; 1. What if they didn’t think they were winning the PR battle? and 2. What happens when they are not? These kinds of questions seemed to bother the republican police chief in Madison a hell of a lot more than they seem to bother our “progressive” president. Makes you wonder why, doesn’t it?
The why is simple; Obama is not a democrat, he’s not a “progressive”, and he damn sure isn’t liberal in any sense of the word.
Barack Obama is a regressive in progressives clothing. The corporatists figured that little trick out decades ago when ex-republican Hillary Clinton and her lame-ass car-salesman husband were selected to occupy the White House and provide liberal cover for the continuation of the neoliberalization of America started under Reagan (oops, I mean Bush I since he really ran things after a family friend shot Ronnie RayGun 6 months into his first term in office)
Gov. Walker let the cat out of the bag when he proudly associated his efforts in Wisconsin with those of Reagan breaking the back of the Air Traffic Controller’s union. Walker asserted that he would be the first domino to fall in a series of what he hoped would be a nation-wide assault on the working classes. This is a point of pride for him. It’s perfectly clear that it has nothing to do with deficits, that could have been wiped out were it not for all the business friendly tax-breaks he handed back to the wealthy elites who backed his run for office.
“Tea Partier” Gov. Walker, just like “Progressive” Barack Obama, was brought in to take advantage of the economic crisis created by these self-same elites and neoliberalize Wisconsin and his little chat with a blogger pretending to be billionaire Koch proved he is hell-bent on doing just that.
While neoliberal servant Barack Obama dances the night away and makes no pretense about it.
The disdain these people have for the average working American is glaring, you can’t hide it and they don’t even try anymore. It takes a significant measure of effort to try to ignore it these days and sure enough, the “progressives” are hard at work doing just that.
It should make you think of various leaders all across the Middle East, those who bathed in opulence while their own people demanded bread.
It’s not just Wisconsin but states all across the country are seeing the beginnings of revolutions, starting slowly, trickling in, hundreds, now thousands, marching in support of the workers of Wisconsin because they know they themselves will be next. Like Ali and Mubarak before him, Emperor Obama basks in the splendor of his position, rightfully his as that he earned it by selling out, just like the Clintons before him. Just outside, his people, once his record setting base, marched in Washington.
Obama, enjoy it while you can. You’re time in office is short, like Ali and Mubarak and even Yeltsin before you, in the end your neoliberal PR advisers aren’t half as smart as you give them credit for. Funny thing about oligarchy and nepotism, the cream doesn’t really rise to the top (for your information, Eugenics is a lie)… it gets hindered and suppressed and deliberately kept on the bottom to make room for someone’s son, daughter, or retarded half-wit nephew. And that is what you have on your side, Mr. President.
Like that moron Gov. Walker. He’s your kind of people, ain’t he?
So dance Mr. President, enjoy it while you can. Remember, even the dictator that your parents served, Suharto of Indonesia, eventually had to go. They all go, Mr. President. Even in America.
So spin around like a drunken Boris Yeltsin. Party with your retarded neoliberal PR advisers, your wealthy banker buddies, and whatever coked-out prostitutes they bought for the occasion. These are the last days of Sodom my friend. Enjoy it while it lasts. You won’t be the first greedy, callous neoliberal puppet care-taker dethroned this year and you damn sure won’t be the last.
So keep dancing Boris. Keep dancing. We’ll see you on the White House lawn real soon and we’ll see how you dance then.
