The Manchurian Candidate…

Via Glenn Greenwald from David Bromwich:

The usual turn from unsatisfying wars abroad to happier domestic conditions, however, no longer seems tenable. In these August days, Americans are rubbing their eyes, still wondering what has befallen us with the president’s “debt deal” — a shifting of tectonic plates beneath the economy of a sort Dick Cheney might have dreamed of, but which Barack Obama and the House Republicans together brought to fruition. A redistribution of wealth and power more than three decades in the making has now been carved into the system and given the stamp of permanence.

Only a Democratic president, and only one associated in the public mind (however wrongly) with the fortunes of the poor, could have accomplished such a reversal with such sickening completeness. [emphasis added]

That’s really the sum of it isn’t it and why I said in my last post why I blame Obama. All the bad Bush things have been officially canonized by the only person who could have – a turncoat from our own midst.
