It is not Obama per se... he is merely a puppet of Centralized Banking, "our" Federal Reserve most immediately, and then by extension The Bank of England and other European Banks.
Nixon's nemesis "Deep Throat" said... "Follow the money..." and that is good advice regarding economics.
The ones that have all governance in their pockets, are the centralized bankers. They are the one's who have set the fluctuating prices, up or down, for oil and other staples of life.
The worldwide economic collapse did not have to happen, it happened by design. You might ask... to what end..? Well in the case of the United States the money for the bailout was borrowed with interest from the Federal Reserve as it has for all wars and other crises since the Reserves inception early in the 1900's.
Our debt has grown to the point that we cannot even afford to keep up with the interest payments, and our politicians have their directives to remain fiscally irresponsible.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild, the godfather of centralized banking said... "Give me control of a nation's money, and I care not who makes the laws."
