Not regarding looking at ways to roll back regulations to get industry moving again he hasn't. Or, its been a well kept secret.

Could just as well be the republicans in another situation.

Of course to get your vote besides the fact, the party and politicians will tell you what you want to hear like cracking down on illegal immigration or bringing jobs back. But then, after they wooed (lied) you, they listen to who really has their attention, and it isn't you. But they know you'll vote for them anyway, or 4 or 8 years later in the end at the most.

This time, they won't be wooing; they'll be dictating.

The forces of the corporate aristocracy have won the war against Obama and this will be his formal surrender.

From now on, anything which is counter to the interests of big business, big banks and globalism is off the table. Banking regulations? Forget it! Make China play fair? Not a chance. Halt the outflow of our jobs? Yeah, right. Rein in the kind Wall Street speculating which brought us the current financial mess? Not on your life. Change tax policies to favor the middle class and poor? Ha ha!

In other words, we're returning to the good ol' days of Bush/Clinton/Bush and y'all think that's a good thing. The looting of the public treasury by corporations and the relentless assault on our liberties and sovereignty in the name of profitability begins anew.

You don't see it now, but the Obama administration may have been this country's last, best hope to reverse the tide of global corporatism which has been destroying this country for the past 30 years.
