|That would be, NO!|
His new chief of staff is from Citigroup. More bank insiders. I do think that Occupy Wall Street had a huge influence on the Presidents speech last night. And I was impressed with that. But his actions will tell the tale. He needs to take charge as President and stop trying to work with people who want him and his policies to fail. I voted for President Obama, and I understand that he is up against a force of politicians that will not work together period. He still tries to maintain some sense of bipartisan collaboration, which I think is just denial on his part. They are NOT going to send him any legislation, "right now!" What I really wonder is, in the elections in November, will the American people reject the Republican intransigence and vote them out? Or are we just going to get the same tired "trickle down" bullshit we've been fed for 30 years. When the President says he is going to help the people who are underwater on their homes and at the same time has all the same entrenched bankers at the Fed, and on his staff, what is really going to change? When Geoffrey Immelt (head of G.E. and one of the biggest outsourcers of jobs) is his jobs Czar, and nothing new is coming from him, it's more contradiction. I want to believe that the President has our best interests at heart. But the people he put in place just don't. That is a mixed message. Millions of people are suffering. He can't afford to wait for a "do nothing" congress, who doesn't care if everyone pays their fair share. The only ones who pay are the poor and what's left of the middle class. President Obama must use all his Presidential power to do something, "Right Now!"
