James K. Galbraith

 

Obama is no progressive

The debt deal will make things clear. The President is not a progressive – he is not what Americans still call a "liberal." He is a willful player in an epic drama of faux-politics, an operative for the money power, whose job is to neutralize the left with fear and distraction and then to pivot rightward and deliver a conservative result.
