      The Bad Deal


      The debt agreement should finally make clear to Europeans that Barack Obama
      is not the progressive President they had hoped for. Instead, writes James
      K. Galbraith, he is a willful player in the Washington politics game. The
      President is not a progressive - he is not what Americans still call a
      "liberal." He is a willful player in an epic drama of faux-politics, an
      operative for the money power, whose job is to neutralize the left with fear
      and distraction and then to pivot rightward and deliver a conservative
      result.
