More B-Rock Barry Bashing Part Two

What'd I say yesterday, in the previous post?

Something new catches my eye every day about the savior known as Barack Obama.

Today, well, actually a couple days ago, I clicked on one of my links at my own site, The Not-So-Quiet American, and had a look at what Minister Faust, a great writer and observationist, had to say about Obama.

While Minister Faust likes Barry, he doesn't like Barry so much that he can't see that he's gone from someone that looked like he could be the future of politics to someone that is a retread.

But what caught my eye was the piece about Glen Ford's piece in the Black Agenda Report. I'd never had a look at the Black Agenda Report or Glen Ford's piece until that point.

Seems Glen Ford has had a history with Senator Obama, watching, as Minister Faust has, Obama go from someone to admire to someone that's just like the rest of them. Them being the professional politicians of America. The corporate sell-outs of America. Those that would sell us down the river for a couple dollars and nothing more.

Glen Ford writes:

"The scam of this still-new century enthralls and envelopes the nation, a narrowly-packaged farce in which political twins Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama pretend they are not joined at the hip on every public policy issue that has been allowed to enter the corporate media-vetted discourse: health care, Iraq, trade. Even these points of (non)contention disappear in the din of purely commercial marketing mantras with infinitely malleable meanings: 'Change', 'Hope', 'Reform'.

"When no real change is offered - when both frontrunners are wedded to a lingering presence in Iraq and to reestablishing U.S. hegemony in the world; when insurance and drug companies are left virtually untouched by duos' tepid forays into broadening health care coverage; and when neither offers a whisper of an idea on halting the corporate-engineered global Race to the Bottom, then it is certain that, although 'change' may come, it will be at the direction of the rich who have brought the nation and planet to the very brink of catastrophe.

"Ironically, it was Bill Clinton who, on the eve of the New Hampshire primary, exposed the bogus nature of the stage-set battle between his wife and Barack Obama...

"When the Great Triangulator and Supreme Snake Oil Salesman tells you a scam is going on, take it from an expert, and believe."

Oh, there's more and I invite all of you, Obama supporters and Clinton supporters and McCain supporters and Huckabee supporters and Ron Paul supporters and Cynthia McKinney (yes, she's running and she'll have my vote) supporters to go check it out.

It seems B-Rock, Barry, Barack, whatever name he's got this week, ain't been telling us the whole truth.

But what else is new?

I'll be back soon with more.
