It will be interesting to see how Rachel Maddow and her liberal-lite colleagues at MSNBC spin the story if Barach Obama ends up backing the Keystone XL Pipeline. They speak no evil of the chief, ever. From Common Dreams:
So while President Obama was relaxing with one of the nation’s elite who makes millions from destroying the planet, activists – most of whom voted for Obama – were circling the empty White House with their pleas to stand up to the fossil fuel industry.
Nice companion piece from AlterNet: “If Barack Obama Tortured, Would Some Liberals Support Him? Probably.”
Footnote: The music, by the great Wayne Shorter, reminds me of Obama — a masterpiece of cerebral cool, inherently shifty. Piano player Herbie Hancock is a genius.
