My take is that Fearless Leader's speech, some have called it a sermon ( The Sermon on The Mole Hill ), was to reassure the Democratic Party faithful that the Federal elections matter in 2016. He had to remind them, by using a subtle MLK Jr. style approach, that going to the polls really does count for something/anything. As it appears it hasn't much, of late, to the man who promised " change we can believe in ". Which is a very tough sell when potential voters hear, 24/7, that about 160 wealthy families are basically running and funding the campaigns of almost all of our potential future options for POTUS. When the average Middle Class family has lost $5000 in yearly earnings since 2008. When less than 38% of registered voters bothered to do so, in 2014. And, when the MSM allows The Nation Magazine's editor Katrina Vanden Hueval to call the current situation, " a gov't run by plutocrats " and the Beltway Crowd pretty much acknowledges that as a quite plausible assertion. So, some know The TPP is a disaster waiting to happen for most of the " Joe & Mary Lunch Pail " crowd and Fearless Leader knows this, too ( I see this at my workplace with the Korean Free Trade Agreement of 2011, currently. Talk about " false advertising ", hah. The last data I saw on this was the deficit was around $ 40 Billion, their side. ) His day of historical reckoning is coming, as one of the female leaders of BLM said on Democracy Now yesterday, " he may well be our last black President ". Ouch! " Do you hear much of a vote of confidence there? Me either, sadly. He spent so little time on the TPP for the same reason he turned The Police & Security State on OWS and BLM but not The Bundy Revolts, I & II. Or, for not vigorously prosecuting Wall St. banks, police depts., et al. He's just carrying out his orders, from his benefactors, and asking " the working people " to do the same; fall to the back of the line, that is. ( " the arc of the moral universe is long and apparently doesn't bend much toward economic justice, just snaps apparently. Kind of odd but, who knew? " ) Also, " trust me, I'm new and fresh " isn't much of a sales pitch, anymore. And, Fearless Leader is pretty much " recycling used goods and old lines " here after more than 7 years of, in his own words, " not being more of a leader, like FDR or Lincoln " ( No kidding and don't remind me, please. My banking fees might go up, again ). Now, that is certainly something the voters and non-voters alike, in 2016, will agree on. " Oh, what a tangled web we weave... when first we practice to deceive. " But, the less said about all that, the better, right?
