Barack Obama is a hypocrite and a liar
Barack Obama is proving to a lot of people that democracy is dangerously sick in the United States. I voted for the man and will admit to having had some hopes that he potentially represented something progressive. I, like many, was fooled. He’s proven himself to be nothing more than a typical Wall Street politician with all the elitist anti-worker, anti-majority world views that entails. I didn’t vote for Emanuel, Summers, Geithner, Bowles-Simpson, Hooverian economic policies, expanded war, criminal violations of civil rights, rising domestic surveillance, give aways to the pharmaceutical and health insurance industries, and likely extensions of high income tax cuts. Few who supported Obama voted for this, but it’s what we got.
The republicans represent wealth and are upfront about it. Obama, in contrast, is a hypocrite.
Hypocrisy: the state of pretending to have beliefs, opinions, virtues, feelings, qualities, or standards that one does not actually have. Hypocrisy involves the deception of others and is thus a kind of lie.
