Oscar for Best Actor in a Plutonomy, Theatric Election : Barak Obama

And though President Obama takes pride in his wealth and his elite membership in the American ruling class (like Romney) he manages to convince much of the American populace that he is very much the “common man” which, of course, he is not.
