Certainly agree that enthusiasm for a capitalist politician does not and did
not constitute a movement; nor did it constitute an opening, a space, an
opportunity.... etc. etc. It did constitute one trick bag in the bag of
tricks called recuperation.
Oh yeah, the Obamaists have to produce results all right. Just like the
election produced its result. Guess what-- they have produced the necessary
results. They have done what they were bankrolled to do-- which was to roll
the bankroll back to the banks.
What they are doing is in fact cutting it; tailoring the cloth just as the
bourgeoisie selected them to tailor. Real innovation? Ah yes, Obama is
going to have his FDR moment any day now, and I'm sure hundreds of leftists
will be lining up to get a shot at the parallel Schlesinger moment.
Never happen. There is no innovation the representatives of this ruling
class can, will, or even care to attempt, that will have a material impact
on the predicament of capital.
The belief that "if forced, they'll do something..." is, at best, cognitive
