What shocks me--even in the context of this colossal betrayal disguised as an election--is that Obama is naïve, corrupt or cornered enough to turn the country's agonizing economic disaster over to the very people who created it. After twenty years of Clintons, Bushes and the criminally complicit corporate media, I thought I was beyond shock.See: "Ponzi Scheme at CITI: Suit Slams Rubin," from the New York Post, Dec. 4; and "The Rubin Ponzi Scheme," on YouTube (Dec. 28).

Next: Summers vs. Volcker:

Okay, just for fun--who will Obama support?

I think we know. The best we can hope for is that the Rubin-Summers circle will collapse of its own criminal weight--with luck, before they have finished the work of destroying the American economy.

And by the way, Mr. President: If I had wanted a "centrist" corporate puppet--or, even more astounding, the third Clinton-neocon-DLC-corporate-owned administration--I would have voted for Hillary.
