Barack Obama got in trouble by promising sweeping changes that would shift the balance of power from the corporations to individual. Perhaps because he was inexperienced, he vastly overestimated his ability to do this and vastly underestimated the corruption of the Republican and Democratic parties gorging at the corporate trough. Now he has everyone mad at him, his supporters for promising so much and accomplishing so little and his detractors for even attempting token swipes at corporate power. But if you look back, he has been on the Wall Street gravy train since day One. Those insanely expensive wall street bailouts with multi-million dollar bonuses were payback for campaign contributions. He is just better at faking sincerity than the average politician.
