I think Obama is a "Kinder/Gentler Corporatist" and that his campaign prmosies were the lies he told to get elected. This is his true side showing and everything he has done has been inline with the kinder way of doing what was/is accepted as republican corporate behavior.
His economic team reflects this. His Health Care Legislation reflects this, with the forcing of citizens to purchase Private Insurance coverage under penalty of IRS inforced penalties.
His closest advisory Emanuel is a very strong supporter of Israel and holds dual citizenship there.
Obama had much support from people like George Lakoff to help form his campaign message. Democrats wanted a win over Bush so bad they would believe anything.
His grandmother was a very early woman Bank Executive, he went to select schools. His father was a Kenian Bureaucrat after he had worked for Oil Corporations. There is much more to support the kinder but gentler Corporate
This will be Obama's Smoot-Hawley bill as remembered in history.
btw look at what he did not do - with his support of the war effort all along - he did not investigate ANY look at the torture and terror issues Bush did.......none of them!
