Why Bernhard continues to attribute ownership of US policies to Obama is a mystery to me, especially when his argument, as in this article, shows plainly that Obama is not the agency of US policies. Like most US president, a major exception being H.W. Bush, Obama was appointed president because of his excellent public relations skills.
...Obama's foreign policy is not really different from the one Bush and Carter followed and the next president will likely try the same foolish hypocritical paths.Yes, indeed, US policies have deep roots, and they lie embedded in a deep shadow state under the control of core members of the ruling capitalist class who are situated in major banking institutions, military, major corporations, key government agencies (especially the Treasury Department and secret services) and Wall Street.
The self-delusion of U.S. allmightiness has deep roots and it will take some near catastrophic events to rip it apart.
