    I am always amazed by the range of political thought on PBS. They will go out to the far left on one side and on the other side they will go all the way out to the near left.

    Choose: Do you want the Republican branded elite’s puppet or the Democratic branded elite’s puppet?

    “…..two men competing to lead this country.”
    Although the US is the engine driving our economy and our PM seems bent on genuflexing at their feet, for now, this country remains Canada and distinctly separate from the the tragic comedy playing to the south.
    Freudian slip?

    For another in-depth perspective on “Barry” Obama, this piece by Michael Lewis in Vanity Fair (Oct 2012) is an exceptional read: http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/2012/10/michael-lewis-profile-barack-obama

    A capsule retake of it appears in interview with Lewis on Charlie Rose Show of Sept 12, 2012 http://www.charlierose.com/view/interview/12549 and another version of the same on CNBC Power Lunch Sept 11, 2012 http://www.cnbc.com/id/48987738/Author_Michael_Lewis_Six_Months_With_President_Obama

    Could care less about all this political garbage. Just get Obama out of there and hopefully Bernanke too and the USA may have a chance at a recovery

    Romney has been picked by the same special interests that selected Obama, one surmises. Nonetheless, Obama is the Chosen One. Romney is merely the backup.
    And so a great many manipulations are now taking place to ensure that Obama is seen as having momentum despite his recent weak performance.
    It is instructive to look at what is going on because it gives us a clearer picture of the ease with which the power elite exercises its clout on behalf of those it wants to support.
    Whether we believe elites are merely a network of powerful people with similar interests or a cohesive cadre of globalists, the manipulations being applied to the Barack Obama campaign for a second term as US president are truly remarkable.

    Neither one of them has my vote. I agree with Michael to disagree on Mr. PM’s foreign policy. The unfortunate reality is American politics have more influence on Canadian politics than we like to accept. Langley, BC.
