Obama is far from dead, in fact support for his socialist agenda among his client population couldn't be higher. This huge group which receives their money from the Federal Government hates business, free enterprise, and most particularly the stock market. They want capitalism in the U.S. to end and end right now. Competition? They hate it. They actually want the government to control business and work rules on jobs because they believe government will be much more likely to accommodate their desires. To say that they hate the rich is a mild observation and anyone who associates with blue collar people (especially union members) will always know what I'm talking about. The last stand for so-called free enterprise will be the election of 2012 which I now think the Dems will win because the Republicans are so out to lunch and so dumb that they simply cannot corral enough votes.
