President Obama is pivoting. That is why his poll numbers are increasing. If he gets another term we are in big trouble without him worrying about another re-election. He already threw our democrats under the bus with his Stimulus (that had to pass or unemployment would go over 8% - we have been over 10% since this was passed). He threw our democrats under the bus with this Health Care Bill. He told everyone to forward e-mails that disagreed with this Health Care policy. What is next? Cas Sunstein, mentioned as a likely Obama nominee to the Supreme Court, Sunstein is currently Obama’s head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs where, among other things, he is responsible for “overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs.” In 2008, while at Harvard Law School, Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-”independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups and websites — as well as other activist groups — which advocate views that Sunstein deems “false conspiracy theories” about the Government. This would be designed to increase citizens’ faith in government officials and undermine the credibility of conspiracists.
As Cas Sunstein said, “Once we know that people are human and have some Homer Simpson in them, then there’s a lot that can be done to manipulate that.”
