In the run-up to the Demo Debacle of 2010, the White House fixers and liars have carted out a campaign to fool the Hope-a-Dopes (what few there are left) once more: gentle, peace-loving President Obama has been the victim of bad, bad people giving him bad, bad advice.
There seem to be takers.
Establishment gossip-monger and kiss-ass (and intelligent agent) Bob Woodward. (Russ Baker with some eye-popping Woodward background.)
The normally sane Bob Parry.
The rockin' and rollin' Uncle O. himself.
The ever-dumb Kevin Drum.
But not everyone.
Justin Raimondo, Tom Engelhardt, Andrew Bacevich, and Patrick Martin.
Meanwhile, Obama's FBI is rounding up anti-war activists, his Justice Department is defending his right to secretly murder anyone on the planet, and his National Security State is arguing for a takeover of all Internet privacy -- while militarily attacking US ally Pakistan.
Baa, baa, baa. . .
