Obama "Thanks" His Supporters

So, having recently won a second term in the US Presidential office, Obama made a hearty speech today, thanking all the voters who supported him and promising to stand up for their values.  Given that our country has sunken into deeper economic decline during his first term, and important social programs like Medicare & Social Security are on the chopping block, while we continue to spend billions of $ expanding our wars abroad, it's good to know the President is ready to fight for the American people:

"The president, speaking from a White House phone, cautioned listeners to expect disappointments during his second term. As he has in the past, Obama warned that he was prepared to swallow some bitter pills during the negotiations, including some that would agitate the base."

Shortly after this "thank you" speech, Obama ran off to meet with "a cadre of corporate discuss their budget ideas."

Do you think he also told these CEOs to "expect disappointments" and "swallow some bitter pills?"  Somehow, I think not.

I guess Obama-voters should be glad they got at least 1 week after the election to feel fuzzy and good, before he crushed their hopes and dreams with brutal honesty.  "Thanks for your votes, guys, but now I'll be thanking my REAL supporters."

I mean, Obama just has his priorities straight.  Sure, votes are good, but he couldn't have possibly won that election without campaign financing.  There will always be American citizens wanting "change," but you can't convince them that you are the change they want without a really good PR campaign!
