talk about pot calling the kettle black: we have the illustrious opportunist from texas, rick perry, making what seriously amounts to an astute observation -- one that's honest, too, if in an unintended way:
Perry says Romney not stark enough contrast to Obama | Reuters: "(Reuters) - Presidential candidate Rick Perry said Republican rival Mitt Romney would not provide a stark enough contrast with President Barack Obama in the 2012 election because of his record on health care policy.the part that rick perry leaves out, of course, is that electing rick perry would not produce a stark contrast from the policies of bar-bar obama, either. bilderberger that he is, rick is a member of the same club. the style and the rhetoric may be different, but in US politics the substance takes a back seat to style every time.
"Government-mandated, government-run health care - It is part of what he put in place as the governor of Massachusetts," Perry said on Thursday during a speech in the early caucus state of Iowa.
"I think it's very important that we put someone as our nominee that does not blur the lines between President Obama and the Republican Party," Perry said."
consider, if you will, what happened with obama. after a campaign where he ran against the useless, illegal wars of bush and cheney, and promised to check the constitutional excesses of the then-incumbent, once in office he gave them all the bipartisan validation that is required to make them enduring features of the political landscape.
when it comes to economics, another great betrayal as obama proposes cuts to social security and medicare that even boehner and cantor haven't the manly parts to come out and propose!
obama is no less a republican than romney, who, after all, provided the model for the much-loathed (on the tea party circuit) "obamacare" healthcare "reforms". it's precisely why this white house, up till perry entered the race, feared romney the most as a potential opponent.
now they can fear perry, but as far as the oligarchy is concerned they win no matter who loses, since all of the pretenders to the oval office are a bunch of screaming, copulating monkeys.
