Obamanocchio: Case Closed

It’s a daily, even hourly, cascade, this waterfall of Obama-fraud revelations.  The Cabinet from Wall Street and War Crimes ‘R Us, the continued and new war crimes, the corporate-insider Health Czar, even the half-assed retreat on stem-cell research:  Obama voters, you got bought and sold, straight up, big time, no doubt.

Today’s backstab(s)?  [Post update — I told you this was hourly…see below…]

The Obama administration said on Monday that it had no plans to reopen negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement to revise its labor and environmental provisions, as then-Senator Barack Obama promised to do during his presidential campaign.

Post update, later the same day:

Chalmers Johnson says the CIA is outdated and rotten to the core, and ought to be closed down.

What does Mr. Change say?  That the CIA “is more important than ever,” and also this:

“I want to be very clear and very blunt,” Mr. Obama said. “I’ve done so for a simple reason, because I believe that our nation is stronger and more secure when we deploy both the full measure of our power and the power of our values including the rule of law.”

Yes, let’s give a big cheer for the great reformer who pledges to keep the rule of law on our list of potential tactics!  After all, it sure can be a mighty convenient argument, when conditions are right for its deployment, of course.

Another Change You Can Believe In

Fresh off his post-primary promise not to question existing US policy on Israel, Mr. Obama has now revealed even more of what he meant by “change.”  Apparently, the unnamed “changes” he promised during his pathetic battle with the walking disease known as Hillary Clinton were not alterations in the murderous/suicidal policies of our troubled market totalitarian neo-racist nation, but rather swift, sharp shifts away from the things millions of poor, deluded Obama people thought they were voting for:

The general campaign is on, independent voters are up for grabs, and Barack Obama is toning down his populist rhetoric – at least when it comes to free trade.

In an interview with Fortune to be featured in the magazine’s upcoming issue, the presumptive Democratic nominee backed off his harshest attacks on the free trade agreement and indicated he didn’t want to unilaterally reopen negotiations on NAFTA.

“Sometimes during campaigns the rhetoric gets overheated and amplified,” he conceded, after I reminded him that he had called NAFTA “devastating” and “a big mistake.”

Does that mean his rhetoric was overheated and amplified? “Politicians are always guilty of that, and I don’t exempt myself,” he answered.
