Big Talk Little Walk

Having forsaken every progressive principle he paid lip service to during his campaign, President Obama is now reduced to doing PR stunts like his address to America's youth. While this is a refreshing change from presidents landing on aircraft carriers, in essence it's the same thing: big talk, little walk.

Americans may have come to expect such shallow amelioratives in lieu of actual public service, but it's sad to see people like former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown saying we should lighten up on Obama. I mean, we're talking about the man who presided over the largest transfer of public wealth to the private sector in the history of the world, wealth that could and should have been used for such things as public health and education.

Willie knows better. Now we need to tell our kids.
