    Leadership: Obama critics were quick to link U.S. loans for Brazil oil to benefits for his investor pal George Soros. There was no link in this case, but considering how this president operates, it's no wonder suspicions ran high.

    The president's announcement that his administration would lend billions of dollars to develop Brazil's offshore oil reserves left many Americans flabbergasted.

    After all, he had issued two drilling moratoriums in U.S. waters and then was declared in contempt of court for defying a federal judge who ordered the moratoriums reversed. Some wondered if the president wasn't intentionally acting against U.S. interests.

    Others wanted to know if pleasing political campaign contributors was the idea. The name of Soros, the leftist billionaire, came up because he'd held stock in Petrobras, the Brazilian state oil company. But he dumped the shares six months ago.

    Our disengaged president has said little as the Arab world is engulfed in revolution and has been absent as a huge budget battle plays out in Congress. But some lines can be drawn between his more inexplicable decisions and cronyism.

    Indeed, many of Obama's decisions have been all about benefiting special interests and political friends — what's been called the Chicago Way. Whatever it's called, it's in the interests of the few at the expense of the whole. Some examples:

    Obama is a crony capitalism socialist? You better warm up before you stretch that far. Otherwise, you'll pull something and end up getting injured. But don't worry too much. Obamacare will take care of you.

    Obama is a puppet doing the will of his puppet masters; Ayers and Sorros being two of them. Anyone doesn't believe obama is a socialist is a fool.

    Obama wrote TWO best sellers that were each sold for a handsome profit. That makes him a capitalist.

    well hell, those things are mild compared to what you all called Bush.

    THAT was enough to make a persons head spin, in fact I think I saw some of the SO CALLED anti-war protesters heads spinning round and round. The only good thing about them was if their heads had spun right off. Then I would laughed my ass off.
