    When asked his opinion,
    about the Wall Street protest
    movement spreading around
    the nation, he sited the implementation of the
    Dodd Frank Bill,but Dodd Frank does not stop subprimes, hedge unds or derivatives,
    so if he was serious about progressive concerns and Wall street hegemony,
    why not restore Glass Steagall?

    He brought up the trade agreemens with Korea an Colombia as priing jobs, but te unins arenot buying that story, and now , very well those agrements mean ,
    mor outsourcng of jobs, and repression of unions and decent working conditions in those nations.

    He mentioned the importance of green energy, but gives more subsidies and corporate welfare set asides, to hydrofraking, offshore drilling, and tar sands oil extraction,
    as well as his recent allowance of what Reagan and Bush could not get away with,
    drilling near the pole in the Alaskan arctic.
    Also his recent lowering of air pollution standards for the biggest corporate offendors.

    He spoke about lack of jobs, after biling out wall street, instead ofcreating jobs with that same 3.5 trilion, wich he could have done by an executive order in the books since 1948,
    and he mentioned the foreclsure epidemic, without mandating, foreclosure moratorium, or mortgage readjustment as a prerequisite by law for all financial institutions before they saw a dime of the bail out money.

    So there were liberal things said, but the actual actions on the presidents part, uncoereced and for the record,
    of his own initiative,
    have been text book -conservative!

    Conservatives do clearly stand against us African people. It's not what they say, but what they do.

    Thank you, black people need to pay more attention to what he does and less to what he says. His words and actions never match up! Ive started hearing this every time I hear him speak lately​

    Lol people seemed to forget that President Obama is the President of America not West Africa, don't expect much out of him when almost of his of his political advisers and economic advisers are former wall street members.
