§Kevin Danaher backed Obama -
by Observer Thursday Oct 6th, 2011 12:28 PM
Kevin Danaher left the Greens , embraced Green Capitalism (like Anti-Union '' Whole Foods '' ie '' Whole paycheck '' ) and backed Obama , Wall St's favored Candidate .
So is he going to apologize for those incrediable mistakes or is he going to try to steer the movement into the Democratic party fold ?
I suspect the latter.
