Matt Taibbi hits the nail on the head:
Hearing Obama talk about jobs and shared prosperity yesterday reminded me that we are back in campaign mode, and Barack Obama has started doing again what he does best--play the part of a progressive. He's good at it. It sounds like he has a natural affinity for union workers and ordinary people when he makes these speeches. But his policies are crafted by representatives of corporate/financial America, who happen to entirely make up his inner circle.
I saw this in Lance Selfa's excellent piece on SW.org this morning, "Is Obama a Class Warrior?" which you can read here.
