The truth is that there’s an enormous amount of anger and frustration around the country. And it’s not right versus left. You know, the anger under the Tea Party movement is the same anger that Michael Moore is feeling. It’s the anger about the fact that what is happening is not fair, that the fix is in, that the system is rigged, and that people who are working hard are not really getting rewarded. And the people at the top who brought us to the financial brink were actually bailed out by the taxpayers.
Arianna Huffington on “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday, March 5 2010
They were bailed out by the taxpayers on the orders of government officials who come from those very same financial worlds and who personally profit massively by the bailouts. As do their friends. The system itself is corrupt and gamed with the Obama Administration a willing participant.
However, Michael Moore suffers from the current liberal delusion that Obama is somehow a clueless player in all of this and just needs encouragement so he’ll do the right thing.
I don’t know what your team has been up to, but they haven’t served you well. And Rahm, poor Rahm, has turned into a fighter — not of Republicans, but of the left. He called those of us who want universal health care “f***ing retarded.” Look, I don’t know if Rahm is the problem or if it’s Gibbs or Axelrod or any of the other great people we owe a debt of thanks to for getting you elected. All I know is that whatever is fueling your White House it’s now running on fumes. Time to shake things up! Time to bring me in to get you pumped up every morning! Go Barack! Yay Obama! Fight, Team, Fight!
The truth is, Obama appointed that team. He’s not some bystander dupe being tricked by devious aides. They are carrying out his wishes and orders. Liberals need to understand that. Then act accordingly.
