Obama is a natural politician. He is a gifted speaker and has a likeable personality. He also has been good at producing legislation which appears to be reform oriented, but in actuality does little to nothing to deal with the underlying problem. In the end Obama is another bought off politician up to his neck in influence peddling and conflicts of interest, and he has no intention of real reform because that would anger his special interest supporters, and he is not going to do that. So instead we get superficial and symbolic reform. The fact is that our government regulatory agencies continue to be bought off with the revolving door and continue to betray the American people. A real reformer would go against the deeply entrenched moneyed special interests and that is not Obama.
