Beware this "left wing versus right wing" dichotomy. This is an attempt to trick us into arguing with each other instead of uniting against the common cause of our problems.
Yes, industries left our nation for China under the Bushes but it also did so under the Clintons! The loss of manufacturing has continued unimpeded through every Presidency for the last 30 years, Republican and Democrat alike.
Has Obama reversed the tax credits, to bring those jobs and manufacturing back home? No? Bad, bad, BAD right wing President Obama. Oh wait, he's a lefty!
The only real divide is the one mentioned at the very top of this article. The one percent that owns it all against the 99% of us being driven into poverty. The poor against the oligarchs.
The powers-that-be are trying to distract us from the looting of our wallets by the big banks by creating a left-versus-right, us-versus-them drama.
You know, the old divide-and-conquer schtick.
While at the moment, conservatives are getting more press, those on the left are just as angry. For example, leading progressive Glenn Greenwald wrote an essay entitled "The virtues of public anger and the need for more" cheering the fact that Americans are starting to get in touch with their righteous anger at being ripped off.
Liberals have launched their own version of the tea party protests calling for the big banks to be broken up.
