But I'm not sure why I'm only seeing posts like this now. The Obama hysteria is lunatic and the proliferation of Che style iconography is creepy. America is going through a horrible financial crisis and if the great depression is anything to go by, people will tolerate a prolonged depression just so long as the government is doing lots of stuff. The Great Depression went on forever and not only was FDR not dumped, he was reelected in, I think, the biggest landslide ever in an American election.

If Obama "does something" and it doesn't help, well at least he's tried and if it works, well then he's a hero. In either case capitalism will remain the villain. Democrats in power combined with Obama mania does not bode well for a measured response.
