Obama goes after GOP - please just be fair sir!

Politico's Glenn Thrush reported on President Obama's first election season whack at the GOP:

Obama went on the summer offensive, accusing Republicans of sucking up to corporations, hewing to a bankrupt economic ideology and peddling tried-and-failed tax breaks for the rich...

Interesting though that while he rightly goes after my party, he fails to mention his own party does the same thing. I mean, who could be a bigger sellout to Wall Street than CTs own Chris Dodd??

Thrush continues quoting the POTUS:

They gutted regulations, and put industry insiders in charge of industry oversight.


Who employed Tim Geithner's Chief of Staff before the US Treasury??

President Obama nominated what "non-lobbyist" for Secretary of Health and Human Services?

Who was the President when Glass-Steagall got repealed in 1999 with the Financial Services Modernization Act??

What party was in the majority in September 2008 when the Bush bailout passed??

Again, he made some fair points in his speech, but Obama is making himself into a joke. For someone who was crowned the anti-Bush intellectual, he's quickly convincing me that he's either not-so-smart or intellectually dishonest.
