The mechanics of the PR tricks used by the marketing agencies contracted to run this country are becoming even more sophomoric and painfully obvious. Pathetic really. Hard to imagine people get paid to write this shit.
A “news” story is all across the spectrum about a mic that was “left on” which recorded Obama, supposedly a candid Obama, at a fund-raiser… really “sticking it” to the republicans. This open mic story is based on something Obama said, at a fund-raiser, at the podium, while speaking to the crowd… with a microphone. This is what passes as an “open mic” story these days.
This is obviously a cheap ploy, written by some politico marketing flunky, in an effort to paint the president as some kind of “progressive” crusader getting ready to take the fight to the far right.
Apparently Obama, who has been the most obvious servant of big business we have seen in decades, has just been “tricking” everyone in order to lure the Chamber of Commerce and big business into a false sense of security.
Now he’s about to spring his trap. You see, Obama plays 40 dimension chess while we all play Chutes and Ladders with safety helmets on our heads. That’s how the cliché went while Obama was picking his neo-liberal corporatist cabinet, right? That’s how the story went while Obama was locking up whistle-blowers and extending our Global Free Market Wars into Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia right?
It’s just so stupid. But you know what? Lots of people will fall for this… simply because they want to, just like they have fallen for the litany of other staged “compromises” over the past 2 years.
The reality is, the sickness bleeding into our society, now being openly attributed to ONLY the far right, the Ryan Right, has been polluting the bloodlines of the fake progressive left since the Clinton administration and it isn’t doing anything but getting progressively worse under Obama.
