In a detailed post showing serious understanding of Marxism, Gary North presents the basic tenets of Marxism then shows how Obama isn’t even slightly Marxist.
He also traces Obama’s docility and compliance to corporate power back to the early 1990′s when he and Michelle were both disbarred. North believes there is a smoking gun there. (Update: Snopes says they weren’t) Could be, but elsewhere he says what I think is the core of Obama’s rise to power.
The Obamas were both social climbers from early in their lives. They are good, old-fashioned liberals, and they learned a crucial social skill as teenagers: how to work white academic liberals’ racial guilt.
As for the future:
The key to understanding the next four years of Obama is his desire to get a lifetime of speaking engagements at $100,000 each. He is a professional politician. If he does not go beyond what his handlers demand, he is set for life.
This is exactly what Bill Clinton did.
