Yet another testament to Obama's actual nature, this time offered by Lula on his way out the door in Brazil:
Brazil's leader says U.S. policies toward Latin America have changed little since President Obama took office, disappointing many hoping for more engagement.
President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva says the U.S. vision of Latin America has "changed little or not at all" though the region has gone through what he calls the world's most important democratization process.
Speaking to reporters at a breakfast meeting in the capital Brasilia, Lula lamented that the election of President Barack Obama had brought little change to the "empire's" approach on Latin America.
"Nothing has changed in the US vision of Latin America, which makes me sad," he said.
Just another addition to the ever-growing collection.
ADDING: The surprising thing for me isn't that Obama has done what he's done, but that so many people who could and should have known better ever expected him to do anything else. You have to wonder what it would take for people to finally learn (or more importantly, accept) this lesson.
