Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), DNCC rainmaker and war industry goombah views some ground combat vehicle with Maj. Gen. Galen Jackman.

Did you catch the Barack Obama Leon Paneta vaudeville act the other day. Paneta said the war department budget cannot be touched. Obama agreed. Obama is of course the choreographer and puppeteer who pulls Penata’s strings. It will be interesting to see how this little dance plays out in the Senate Cut and Gut Committee which is supposed to be considering reductions in war stuff.

And this show debuted just days before another member of the White House servants pool, Harry Reid, appointed two war industry goombahs to the Obama’s Second Catfood Commission. The president’s first Cut And Gut Commission, you will recall, failed miserably so this time he wants to try one in the Senate. He made this one as fail-safe as he possibly could.

Reid appointed White House loyalist and Democratic National Campaign Committee rainmaker Sen. Patty Murray of Washington and the ever switchable John Kerry of Massachusetts (I voted for it before I voted against).

Both senators tie in beautifully with the Obama-Paneta. Both senators are war industry goombahs who collect vast sums of scratch from war corporations and their K Street consiglieri and they are unlikely to vote for significant cuts to the war budget – another reason to be fearful that Obama and the Dems are out to get Social Security and Medicare.

The moral of the story is you don’t have to be Italian to be a corporate crony.  

Primary Constituent-Payoff Money

Obama displays strong leadership qualities – for Wall Street and the corporations.

The president has shown repeatedly that his first constituent is: The Payoff Money (sometimes referred to as “campaign contributions”).

The smile that beguiles. Does it reveal an empty soul?

Although his support remains strong among genetically disposed Democrats, polls show the president losing support among liberals.

Let’s not forget Barack Obama’s contribution to this sad state of affairs. He has failed liberals on every major issue of the day. The wars go on, health insurance is still in need of reform, financial regulation is meager at best, Net Neutrality will succumb to corporate demands, the Bush tax cuts are destined to become permanent and reductions in Social Security loom ahead.

We’ve lost the battle because Obama is on the other side. And with his recent appointments of high level advisers, he thumbs thumbs his nose at us.

The debacle of the recent elections tells us that independent voters have come to terms with Obama’s treachery. Liberals must now do the same and recognize that Obama is a Blue Dog pseudo-Democrat who has not earned the support of his base. Vote for Obama at your peril.

If no major candidate represents your views, when you vote in 2012 leave the presidential field blank. Abstention can speak loudly. Do not waste yet another vote.
