A Parroting Parody
As President Obama -- like his fellow synthetic sycophants Condoleeza Rice and Colin Powell -- becomes little more than a parody parroting corporate cliches, his ability to con (let alone inspire) innocents abroad and at home will diminish. And perhaps that is his unintended legacy--to set the pattern firmly in mind for all those infantilized by public relations and superficial education designed to create compliant citizens as consciousless consumers. If so, then maybe it will have been worth suffering his bombastic bromides and silly syllogisms; a silver lining for Goldman's golden boy.
