The June 8 article, “Frustrated liberals want more from Obama,” a person quoted complains that Obama has “succumbed to the corporate influence as much as anyone else.” Indeed. And this is why I left the Democrats. Exit Stage Right, back to the Republicans as a moderate. Over two years ago, I gave clear indication that I was headed in this direction. As a farewell to the wheezing burro loaded down with corporate largess I’ve borrowed Bogart’s parting shot to Bergman between takes: Here’s looking at you kid.
The Right considers Obama a socialist. Is Citadel Investment Group socialist? The Blackstone Group? Barely a year ago Obama had more Wall Street contributions than all the GOP candidates combined.
Also not long ago, John Boehner remarked that he had “Gotten about 95 percent of what he wanted from Obama.” Is Boehner a socialist? Obama a socialist? Only if Wall Street is socialist.
