Obama Still Doesn't Get It
In response to President Obama telling Business Week that he doesn't begrudge the excessive CEO pay and bonuses o Wall Street, several progressive commentators and bloggers have been in disbelief that Obama still does not seem to understand the magnitude of the disgust the American workers feel toward the capitalist class in the United States. In fact, Obama and the Democratic Party have been trying to win more support from the Wall Street business class that created the Great Recession. While the "leaders" and funders of the Democratic Party have been focusing on saving capitalism and the corporate elite, workers on main streets are desperately looking for a populist movement to support and fight back!
