Barack Obama - ostensible president?

"Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics, is the first task of the statesmanship of the day." - Theodore Roosevelt 1906-04

(quoted in Al Gore, Assault on Reason (isbn 978-0-14-311362-1) p. 90

"Under capitalism, man exploits man. Under communism, it's just the opposite." J.K. Galbraith? Al Gore p. 95
