Of Oil, Media and the Election

Does anyone truly believe big oil wouldn’t be happy with Obama out of office? The question becomes, are they actively pressuring the economy to make that happen? This election has seen an unprecedented and dangerous level of interference by the corporate media, big oil and even foreign nations.
Israel has placed pressure most strategically on this election on multiple levels, from lobbying over a largely manufactured impasse with Iran. Hint, it ain’t about nukes and crazy Persians. That pressure culminated with Netanyahu’s speech meant purposely to interfere with the process.
As for oil, their interest is easy to unravel. The administration’s emphasis on alternative fuels, the Keystone pipeline issue, threats to $2billion in annual subsidies and threats of increased taxes pose a threat to the taxpayer-funded party the oil company has enjoyed for decades is at risk.
The mouthpiece of big business and big oil is the media remains complicit and obedient. With each new election the media has asserted itself to greater degree to the point that it all but manipulates and channels pre-selected pseudo puppets, creating a cleverly marketed horse race soap opera. Obama has mostly remained a proper puppet, but there is a danger in him maintaining office.
The Right and Left are not only ideologically different but structurally as well. The far Right is still beholden to right-wing cults of personality. Tea party followers will still vote for Romney. The  truly progressiveLeft has no loyalty to the party, and is perhaps more critical of Dems than of the Right, because their intention is to force the Dems to true  change. They have no hope of the changing the Right, only making them obsolete. What that means in an election and for a 2nd Obama term is the chance for change, and change for the Right is bad.
Following the debacle of the debate last week the Press can nakedly begin funneling Romney into the Whitehouse, under cover of Obama’s lackluster performance, with the fraud that popular support has swung to Romney. Need proof? ABC news reported huge enthusiastic crowds at Romney rallies today in florida, then reported quote, “Obama campaigned in California today where gas prices reached an all time high.” So much for th”liberal” media, but then who was really fooled?
