When reality is too disturbing, many fall into the trap of wishful thinking. Millions of Americans fell for the fantasy of Obama rather than the reality. The reality of his career, beliefs and allegiances was that he is an opportunist, funded and vetted by Wall Street. The evidence of that was readily available years before he became president, but a people desperate for hope and change chose to ignore it. Instead of backing a proven humanitarian like Winona LaDuke, they went along with Madison Avenue marketing. Now we pay the price.
