While mainstream journalists have noted discrepancies between Obamas original vision and reality, Paul Street uniquely measures Obamas record against the expectations of the truly progressive agenda many of his supporters expected him to follow. Taken together, the list of Obamas weakened policies is startling: his business-friendly measures with the economy, the lack of support for the growing mass of unemployed and poor, the dilution of his health reform agenda, the passage of a record-setting Pentagon budget, and escalation of US military violence in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia.

Streets account reveals these and many other indications of how deeply beholden Obama is to existing dominant domestic and global hierarchies and doctrines.
