Wasn't that strange?
Yesterday, A.M., Clinton comes out of the OAS meeting fairly jaunty, saying that 'progress' had been made, but really saying that things were going to stay the same because Cuba won't blahblahblahblah.
Vy the afternoon, the other Latin American nations gave her the finger.
Meanwhile, Cuba doesn't care, any more than it's cared all along, because Cuba sees the OAS is an arm of the U.S. military, economic and propaganda machine! This is one of the strangest actions lately.
While, in Cairo, Obama admits that the U.S. played a major role in the 1953 coup in Iran! Then saying that he believed that Muslim women have rights -- to wear head scarves and veils, and to learn to read.
I knew Obama was a corporatist and I didn't expect much from him, other than he wasn't THEM, which considering is a lot and worth having supported him, but he's still disappointing, though I knew better and knew I should expect it. Lately, though, he's been coming off to some degree as an air head, which we know he's not, of course.
The rightwing has such a strangle hold on the national discourse and media, while the insurance, oil and gun lobbies and industries have a strangle-hold on Congress and D.C. -- we're not moving on freakin' anything.
Then he puts that damned Iowa rethug in charge of the NEH!
