"If only you were my President, Hugo."
Ah, truth: that bitter pill. Catching up with a growing number of his fellow Americans Danny Glover Sees No Difference Between Obama and Bush:
“I think the Obama administration has followed the same playbook, to a large extent, almost verbatim, as the Bush administration. I don’t see anything different,” the activist movie actor said of Obama’s policies in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Middle East. “On the domestic side, look here: What’s so clear is that this country from the outset is projecting the interests of wealth and property. Look at the bailout of Wall Street. Why not the bailout of Main Street?”
Translation: "Where's our stuff?" Glover is just echoing what we have to a large part heard from a good number of his like-minded friends: Obama was going to make life fair for people by paying their mortgages & buying their gas, spreading his stash of free Obama money, and handing out new cars. Okay that last part I made up. It's actually Oprah who is known for handing out cars; Oprah who was coincidentally Glover's co-star in the only good movie I can recall the two of them ever starring in: "The Color Purple". They're not so much speaking for those who throw rocks at glass houses as those who just want their own glass tile McMansions.
I'm sure Chavez has a room for you, Danny. Don't mind the people you have to step on between the airport and the palace. They're willing doormats, after all.
