[I]'m not even sure what the arena is. I note, with respect to the governor, that a week ago, the president comes out and congratulates republicans on the biggest budget cuts ever in the history of this country, then the next week, you're [the president was] slamming them about their deficit reduction priorities. so I'm not even sure I understand what side of his mouth the president's really speaking out of, respectfully—Travis SmileyIt is interesting that the left is just as confused by the recent budget deal struck by the president and House Republicans as everyone else is. Some report that both sides won and some are reporting that both sides lost Travis Smiley of the far left is not happy with the deal cut by the president and House Republicans. Smiley on Meet the Press with David Gregory and guest former Democrat Gov. Jennifer Granholm attempted to explain to their partisans why the deal was good for Democrats.
Smiley though is confused by what president Barry Hussein Soetoro has said about the budget deal. According to Smiley within a week’s time, the president praised Republicans for budget cuts and then excoriated them about their priorities in reducing the deficit.
Smiley’s biggest problem seemed to be that the agreement struck between Democrats and Republicans, in his view neglects the poor. However, the president believes that he has the best of Speaker of the House Boehner as evidenced by his, “You think we’re crazy” crow. Mr. Smiley believes that the president‘s budget didn’t protect poor people.
The truth that Mr. Smiley is only now realizing is this, his president never was really concerned with the poor. President Soetoro was trained by community Organizer Saul Alinsky who taught that the poor should be used purely for their numbers. However it is the white middle class that was the actual target for political action. Yet the fact is Soetoro isn’t interested in the poor or the middle class he is only interested in power.

Apparently Smiley thought that the president shared his concern about the poor not understanding that an Alinsky devotee is only concerned with power. Raw political power.
