Ed Asner Trashes Obama, Says Wildlife Worse Off Than During Bush Presidency
Lefty Ed Asner Slams Barack's 'Corporatist' Ways
At this point, our "progressive" friends are divided into two camps: one mindlessly hooked on Obama Happy Pills and the other, a disillusioned lot who feel they've been hoodwinked.
Both were vividly displayed during Tuesday's Stephanie Miller Show as notorious Hollywood lefty Ed Asner revealed a distinct loathing of the Obamist presidency.
Listen as Miller is sorely disappointed after expecting the usual happy talk:
ED ASNER: I’m on the board of Defenders of Wildlife. At a recent board meeting the announcement was made for just wildlife alone the conditions are worse with this administration than they were when Bush was president and both houses were under Republican control.
MILLER: Now, how so why? What’s happening?
ED ASNER: Well, I guess you’ve got craven Democrats and you’ve got maniacal Republicans who are being infected by Tea Party candidates that got elected. I don’t know.
MILLER: But tell us more about the, what is the state of what’s happening and why in that regard with wildlife.
ED ASNER: Well, I think we’ve got another corporatist as president. That’s what I think. And I think he’s [Obama] behaving accordingly. It seems we can’t get away from a president who represents corporations more than people.
MILLER: You’re kind of harshing my buzz this morning Ed.
ED ASNER: I do what?
MILLER: You’re kind of harshing my buzz this morning, ha ha.
Compare Asner's "corporatist" complaint with Rush Limbaugh's recent monologue on GE's Jeffrey Immelt joining Obama's economic advisory team. Notice a pattern? Are both left and right equally frustrated with Barack's elitist Wall Street/banking buddies?
The new America: Obama's pals versus virtually everyone else.
