  • I don't put much stock in Rolling Stones to write about politics...  But I agree with this, "he is just a rookie in the political big leagues"

  • I think they could just regurgitate this article with every President's name on it with different special interests written in. Is this really a surprise? It's just how DC works. It needs to change. No hope and change in this administration, just different players.

  • "Barack Obama ran for president as a man of the people, standing up to Wall Street as the global economy melted down in that fateful fall of 2008. He pushed a tax plan to soak the rich, ripped NAFTA for hurting the middle class and tore into John McCain for supporting a bankruptcy bill that sided with wealthy bankers "at the expense of hardworking Americans." Obama may not have run to the left of Samuel Gompers or Cesar Chavez, but it's not like you saw him on the campaign trail flanked by bankers from Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. What inspired supporters who pushed him to his historic win was the sense that a genuine outsider was finally breaking into an exclusive club, that walls were being torn down, that things were, for lack of a better or more specific term, changing.

    Then he got elected."

  • WOW. Rolling Stones has never leaned right, but they sure are calling out Obama on this one. Pretty good, actually.
