Barack Obama has continued to prove that he said things to get votes that he had no intention of actually doing. He espoused morals and ideals in order to fool voters.
I do not know why Barack Obama calls him self a Democrat, other than Bush poisoned the Republican brand so bad that Obama opportunistically rode a wave of NEED for change, and fooled the country in the most Machiavellian and disgusting way.
He's for the folks with the money. The rest of us, apparently, can go hang!
