Have you bought into "Brand Obama"?

Asked by Stanley (184points) May 11th, 2009

Do you get the feeling that Obama and company are trying to sell us on feeling good about ourselves? That ultimately as things change things stay the same?

The people who have their interests in the money and power in this country do this to us every 8 years or so. We start to get wise to corporate treachery, and a vast military-industrial complex and the looting of the treasury and it is the big bad republicans at fault, and we rabble rabble. Then, in comes a shiny democrat, the peoples champion, and it quells us for while, as the machine continues to churn just as it did before, but somehow we are pacified to it. They did it with Clinton, and now Obama.
