« "Obama’s foreign policy has been a profound disaster" | Main | Mid-afternoon Chuckle, kinda sorta »

I know I sound like a broken record, but so be it: Obama isn't making an effort to solve this "intractable" problem because he doesn't want to solve it. He wants to bring down the capitalist system -- and in particular he wants to bring down the nation that above all symbolizes that system. This man has been given something no other socialist or communist or anarchist or nihilist or leftist of any stripe has ever had: the POWER to wreak havoc upon capitalism. And he is using that power. There is nothing in his past -- not one single datum of which we know -- that indicates he has ever had the slightest desire to benefit the system under which he has prospered. He does indeed have a DAD problem: he is a man who believes he has been put upon this earth to finish the anti-colonialist, anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist work that his dad began in Africa. Those who expect Obama to "do something" about the economy are going to have a long and frustrating wait. They'd have better luck waiting for the first spaceship to Mars.
