AP Exclusive: Obama Wants $33 Billion More for War
Elected on the slogan of “Change You Can Believe In” Obama came in on a clear mandate to do just that. While mouthing the occasional word to placate those who elected him, in one instance after the another Obama has demonstrated in his acts, again and again, that he is a bought man. Whether he entered office under false pretenses, knowing that this is as he would act, or whether he came under pressures to behave a certain way, or else (…..), is not yet clear. But what is clear is that he acts in the interests of bankers, insurance corporations, big pharma, and the military-industrial complex, for whom he’s worked out as a wonderful Step’nFetchit front-man, inoculated from criticism from the PC left who fear the smear of racism (see Reid, who merely said something true). So clear is this that given the funding provided by the banks for his campaign, and given the general unrest of the populace in the wake of the Bush era, one wonders whether Obama’s meteoric rise was indeed not the consequence of a carefully planned manipulation in which his role was to mollify the left while cow-towing to the right.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration plans to ask Congress for an additional $33 billion to fight unpopular wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, on top of a record request for $708 billion for the Defense Department next year, The Associated Press has learned.
If indeed this was an orchestrated Manchurian Candidate situation, I am afraid it is being unveiled a little bit more quickly than its makers might have hoped. The Obama minstrel show is wearing out fast among his year-ago supporters, though this is likely to leave the door wide-open for a real right-winger to waltz into the vacuum come 3 years from now. If so, the country will be ripped apart – if it isn’t already.
