But he's a Democrat!
Barack Obama: Liar, Warlord and Corporate Shill
He promised peace and delivered war; real health and financial reform, not same old, same old; help for millions losing jobs, homes, hope and futures, not handouts to Wall Street and other industry favorites; regulatory oversight, not the usual incestuous government-industry ties, making disasters like in the Gulf possible, and when they happen conspiring with offenders in coverup, distortion, lies, and a total disregard for the environment, wildlife, and way of life for thousands - let alone permanent damage to a vital ecosystem.
During his 2008 campaign, CRP reported that the oil and gas industry overall gave him $884,000, more than any to other lawmaker except John McCain, and no wonder. His Senate voting record showed what they bought:
-- the right of mining companies to strip mine everywhere, including on government lands;
-- vast new powers and handouts to the nuclear industry;
-- harmful biofuels production;
-- lax regulation; and
-- other pro-business, anti-populist measures - besides supporting the 2005 Energy Policy Act.
