Separated At Birth, Robert Reich Edition

It takes a special kind of gasbag to arrive at the conclusion that “Obama Has Handed The Election Over To The Super Rich” What, did #OccupyResoluteDesk somehow disenfranchise us all by playing along with the SuperPAC game?
“Good ends don’t justify corrupt means,” whines Reich. Which of Obama’s ends was the good one? <sarcasm>Isn’t ‘good’ some kind of social construct, anyway?</sarcasm>

  • I can’t figure out if Reich is really that stupid (given the lack of validation on Obama’s donation site in 2008), or
  • he’s trying to put up some sort of moral facade, or
  • this argument is a fat joke.

Ultimately, you can’t make the argument that ‘$’ => ‘negative ads’ => ‘vote control’ without implying that voters are so criminally stupid that we shouldn’t give Americans the right to vote in the first place. Two things I know:

  1. Barack Obama, whatever the reason, is no source of factual information, and
  2. The GOP candidates, overall, are only slightly better.

Everyone is on the hook for doing their own homework on candidates and their claims.

    The odds of Reich not voting for Obama again despite Obama’s known corruption are about as good as the odds of Paul Krugman (D-Village Idiotville) disavowing his economic recovery plan based on alien invasion prevention.

    Reich will never, ever give up his lust for more and more obamallatio. It is his main food source.

    Reich has always been about the facade, attempting to spin every outrage into something else to justify the left’s every move.

    Randy Newman was right, dammit.
