I'll rephrase: How can you reconcile Obama's alleged Marxism with his total obedience to Wall Street's capitalist demands?
I simply am not naive enough to think that Obama would blow his Marxist load in one shot at the beginning of his first term......but perhaps it is slightly possible that it is for the power and the control, and what it will be in the future
(not before re-election)
I don't think there's anything he could do now that would balance the books enough to make him even break even on the left/right spectrum.
He gave trillions to the banks and promoters of fiat currencies.
He cooked up the health care bill which over a decade or two will mean trillions in windfall profits to Big Pharma and the insurance industry.
He's continued to launch bomb and missile strikes against at least half a dozen countries in the Mideast, which will guarantee more trillions in profits to the military-industrial complex.
Even if he spent the entire second term serving left-wing causes, I don't think it will even be enough that a balancing of the books will see him as anything other than a right-wing Wall Street toady.
