I always hate to say, "I told you so", but at the time Obama, the Pope of Hope, the Prince of Peace, was creating an epidemic of irrational euphoria after his election, I like all those others who see through the smoke and mirrors of the democracy illusion, were aghast at the gullibility of the general public. As far as we were concerned it was a case of "the King is dead, long live the King". We cringed at the expectations that were bound to rot on the vine, we felt sad at the disillusionment that would soon swamp the multitude. Here we are now near the end of his presidency and it is difficult to find a voice in support of the Dragon of the Drones. He stands like the rest of the state leaders, condemned as a war monger, a bulwark against freedom, a crusher of dissent, another figurehead doing the corporate world's dirty work, by putting the state's stamp of legitimacy all all their corrupt and brutal actions. I hope all those Obama groupies will now reflect and say, when will we ever learn.
