- Barack Obama
The US economic situation has not changed in the last few months, and the Romney tax nonsense, whichever version of the many he attempts to sell to every different audience, ultimately is seen as nothing but a dishonest political gambit, to conceal the hidden agenda of austerity for the Middle class, and Tax cuts for the wealthy.
This would be Emperor, has no clothes on, and, us, the little people, are realizing that this is the ultimate gambit of the 1% to institute their plan for the control of the people a la the 1926 depression, when people slaved for even a crust of bread.
David Frum, formerly a fellow of one of these think tanks – the American Enterprise Institute – argues that they "increasingly function as public relations agencies". But in this case, we don't know who the clients are. As the corporate lobbyist Jeff Judson enthuses, they are "virtually immune to retribution … the identity of donors to think-tank’s is protected from involuntary disclosure". A consultant who worked for the billionaire Koch brothers claims that they see the funding of think-tank’s "as a way to get things done without getting dirty themselves".
Having a Republican back in the White House, would be more disastrous for US and the world than when Americans allowed a second term with G W Bush. Let's not forget the economy and world Obama inherited was after 8 years of Republican reign. They left things in the worst way for decades and we all know it takes longer to build than destroy.
