Obama – Romney : 2012 (the Corporate Uniparty)
Corporate Uniparty Platform: War * Assassination * Environmental Destruction * Indefinite Detention * Oil Spills * Atomic Accidents * Deregulation * State Secrets * Warrantless Wiretapping * Low Taxes for the Rich * Cuts to the Social Safety Net * Immunity for the Wealthy and Powerful, more prisons for everybody else
Party Motto : Let Them Eat Cake!
Party Goals : The old world will burn in the fires of industry. The forests will fall. A new order will rise. We will drive the machinery of war with the sword and the spear and the iron fist of the Orc. — as stated by Saruman (Corporate UniParty Spokesman), in Lord of the Rings
Lets give up the pretense that there is a choice between the two parties, and drop the illusion that they are more than separate wings of the same corporate owned operation. Obama should just ask Romney to be his VP, and it will save us all a lot of effort. And it should even be very “bi-partisany,” which Obama should be happy about.
Although pondering this possibility makes me wonder. . . will people still say that, “if we don’t vote Obama-Romney,” we are just “throwing away our votes?”
Finally, for those of you who might think that Obama is not really that bad, here are some interesting sites to demonstrate how far to the Right he really is :
Here’s the problem: Even if Obamaism works on its own terms – that is, if Sullivan is right that Obama’s presidency is precisely on course – it can’t stop Republicans from wrecking the country. Instead, it may end up abetting them.
Paul Krugman spells it out: But let’s be frank. It’s getting harder and harder to trust Mr. Obama’s motives in the budget fight, given the way his economic rhetoric has veered to the right. In fact, if all you did was listen to his speeches, you might conclude that he basically shares the G.O.P.’s diagnosis of what ails our economy and what should be done to fix it. And maybe that’s not a false impression; maybe it’s the simple truth.
And here is a relevant video demonstrating how close Obama and McCain were back in 2008
