It seems President Obama is big on raising his voice and a lot less vocal when it comes to taking care of govt business..

http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20140429/14333827067/obama-complains-that-tpp-critics-are-conspiracy-theorists-who-lack-knowledge-about-negotiations.shtml

It's become fairly clear that the TPP agreement is in trouble these days (for a variety of reasons). And it appears that President Obama is losing his cool concerning the agreement and its critics. In a press conference with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, President Obama lashed out at TPP critics, calling them "conspiracy theorists" whose criticism "reflects lack of knowledge of what is going on in the negotiations."

You know why those complaining may "lack knowledge of what is going on in the negotiations"? Perhaps it's because the USTR has insisted that the entire negotiations take place in complete secrecy with no transparency at all. If President Obama doesn't want conspiracy theories about the agreement, and wishes that its critics were more informed about the negotiations, he can change that today by instructing the USTR to release its negotiating positions and promise to make all future negotiating positions public.

But he won't do that. Why? Because the USTR has admitted that if the public knew what was going on with the TPP, it wouldn't support the agreement. And so the negotiations continue in secret.

It seems then that dubious politics is a bigger threat than conspiracy theorists, whilst we hear a lot of talk about fairness and democracy in reality we see little of it and more pocket-book diplomacy at work, that is the real problem Obama should address.

Like all of the other trade agreements that threaten our little home here on the web I reserve the right to moan about it  :yes:

Like others who are against the well-being of people in general for the benefit of the elite who bought them, Obama squeals like a stuck pig when he encounters even the least opposition; the sign of a true tyrant. One has to question the extent of his delusions if he thinks he's on the side of the "good guys" while doing all that he does.
