Is it possible for Obama to be this clueless?

About this article--
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aKGZkktzkAlA

"Bank executives are not free agents who are earning big bucks in fair competition; they run companies that are essentially wards of the state. There’s good reason to feel outraged at the growing appearance that we’re running a system of lemon socialism, in which losses are public but gains are private. And at the very least, you would think that Obama would understand the importance of acknowledging public anger over what’s happening.
But no. If the Bloomberg story is to be believed, Obama thinks his key to electoral success is to trumpet “the influence corporate leaders have had on his economic policies.”
We’re doomed."

  • Is it possible for Obama to want to have his cake and eat it too? YES, that is exactly what he is doing. He stirred up the Main St. anger at the "outrageous compensation packages and bonuses" that Wall St. passed out like candy, and now, he is just fine with their bonuses. He is walking both sides of this fence, and I feel he shouldn't even be in the field. He is doing / saying whatever he needs to say to satisfy whoever he is talking to at the moment.

  • IMO~ Obama has NO business experience. No Governing Experience.  He surrounds himself with more liberal elitest academics and less business professionals. (If Geithner is the best he has, that speaks volumes)...  This is more of his lacking experience on display..... Kind of like his lacking experience on the military (see corpseman speech)

  • He IS doing it, and nobody is stopping him, so I guess he's not all that clueless, is he?
