What keeps us at war -- and without universal healthcare -- is not the moral  failings of politicians but the system within which politicians -- including presidents -- are forced to act.  That's the argument of  investigative journalist Russ Baker in this conversation with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick.   Baker is the author of Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, the Powerful Forces that Put it in the White House,  and What Their Influence Means for America.   He's also the the founder of the new website  WhoWhatWhy.com where you can find more of his work.

 Obama's grade thus far? A mixed bag.
Hosted by: Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

 

56:29 minutes (25.86 MB)

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 11/03/09

Air date: 
Tue, 11/03/2009 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Obama's grade thus far? A mixed bag.

Nearly a year after his election (but, in fairness, not yet a year into his first term), Barack Obama is an enigma. Thankfully, he has abandoned the rapacious aggression and naked nationalism of the Bush years, but on critical issues like warrantless surveillance and detention of combatants he is barely distinguishable from his criminal predecessors. His clear-eyed acceptance of global warming is refreshing -- not to mention timely -- but he appears on the verge of capitulating to the profiteers who run the American health care system.

Barack Obama remains a study in contradictions. Abe and Joe examine his record thus far, and speculate on what's to come.
