Populist is the word

I’ve been hearing Obama get called “populist” all week because of the SOTU. Whatever.

But when you point out that the speech is in contradiction with Obama’s own fundraising efforts, perhaps asking the question of whether he’ll really be a populist is besides the point.

Actions speak louder than words and money speaks loudest of all, so let’s not be coy here. He’s in campaign mode and will make great speeches and big promises like he did last time. After election day, it’s back to 2009.
