Romney would appear to be the establishment’s choice. In that role, Romney looks and sounds presidential; a classic, rugged veneer to gloss over the stuffing that will fill the suit. Romney would meet everyone in the middle and all would be pacified and satisfied. But, what we will likely see come November 2012 is not Romney versus Obama but The Establishment versus The Powers That Be.
The economy was better a mere five years ago, and while we knew that life in this falling world would always be lived on shaky ground, there was the hope that if one worked hard that he or she could live the American Dream; perhaps running their own business or if that wasn’t their cup of tea – moving up the corporate ladder in the company that employed them because prospects for growth shined as brightly as the rising sun on the eastern skyline.
In the 2008 Presidential election, the liberal left raised up and anointed a messiah, and they did not call him Jesus – they called him Obama. Oprah Winfrey referred to him as “The One” and a disconnected, pacified, soft, self-absorbed, and politically-corrected populace agreed that this “One” would bring Hope and Change and save us from “uh…um…yeah, whatever those people on T.V. said.”
Does Occupy Wall Street know what it is that they are protesting, or are they merely naive’, idealistic, recycled hippies and second and third generation flower children? Does the Obama administration have more than just a passing interest in this group and its success?
But, the casual news observer will be made suitably uninformed by being lulled into a stupor by nearly non-stop Election 2012 coverage or by SOPA pseudo-censorship…that is unless an event so colossal takes place in the world that all self-respecting albeit controlled media outlets will be forced to push aside the perpetual coverage of the buildup to the election; if the election itself isn’t postponed!
