    Obama Said to Consider William Daley for Top Post, Possibly Chief of Staff - Bloomberg


    Congratulations Obama on being one of the biggest corporate, banker whores to have ever graced the White House. :clap2:

    It's obvious who really operates the United States. It's all one gargantuan banker/corporate/government circlejerk.

    This is true.

    Obama's Administration is full of corporate whores and very very few actual progressives.

    Is there anyone still out there that believes this man is progressive in any way, shape, or form?

    Being progressive is all about being a corporate whore.

    That garbage about their standing up for "the little guy" is but a ruse to take in the gullible.

    But that has been common knowledge, for all those willing to face the facts, for at least a century....To wit:

    John Kass was hired to take over Mike Royko's space when he died. Kass isn't Royko, but he does know Chicago:

    Bill Daley will pretend Obama is a centrist, while Carol Browner and Lisa Jackson over at the EPA will kick and tax what's left of business to the curb.

    Sounds like a winning strategy for 2012.

    I wouldn't go as far as you do here, but I'll agree this is NOT a good move.

    I remember Obama briefly addressing concerns about keeping/bringing on the very SOB's that help facilitate the disasters wrought by the Shrub years to his administration. His response was, "these people now work for me".

    Well, between the advise they give him, the Party of No and the wish-washy Dem Congress/Senate....it would seem President Obama is deluding himself.

    Which leads me to another point of confusion.....given exactly what has come out of the Obama administration thus far, you'd think the neocon driven GOP would be estatic! But instead, they've promised to essentially fuck up Congress until either Obama is out of office or ANY achievements he's made have been destroyed.

    Go figure.

    Blago goes to trial and Daly takes over Rahmbo's seat while Rahmbo moves to mayor?

    Is this an ironic comedy? Or a nepotistic cabal?

    It all reads like a modern variation of "who's on first".

    Obama is not progressive. That's a lie and a half.
