Ah! But is he really "an American imposed punishment?" We can (and have) questioned where all his sacks of campaign money came from, especially considering all the corporate paybacks after the election. And when Hillary got caught being funded by a certain Chinese national there was much discussion of the possibility of foreign money pouring in for the Dems. But set all that aside for the moment. Obama made promises. Many think he not governing the way he campaign promised. Well nothing new there - a politician making outlandish promises.
I think baring some catastrophe that prompts voters to re-elect all the incumbents I guess you can say he's "an American imposed punishment" if he gets re-elected. Personally I think there's a better case to be made that America was hoodwinked.
Back to them sweet corporate deals I have to laugh at Obama's latest attack on "Government Sacks," I mean Goldman Sachs. I mean when you consider how many former Goldman employees got into government jobs & all.
Well I'm glad Obama kept his promise not to hire lobbyists. Unfortunately he seems to have made a whole lot of special exceptions to that rule, so I think you can count that as another broken promise.
So America made a mistake and is suffering for it. If they vote him back in it will be a self imposed punishment.
