Tom Hartman On Obama's Neoliberalism

Tom Hartman delivers a good breakdown on how President Barack Obama is a neoliberal. Hartman doesn't actually use the word neoliberal. Hartman describes Obama as being aligned with the Democratic Leadership Council. Obama told corporatist Democrats and declared, "I Am A New Democrat." The term "New Democrat" is code for neoliberal. Harold Ford, Evan Bayh and Joe Lieberman have served as DLC chairs. When those names are mentioned the word "change" doesn't suddenly come to mind.

Hartman makes an excellent point about how corporatist Obama really is. Can anyone imagine FDR mandating people buy private insurance.
