Tergiversation

“Là, avec « Occuper Wall Street », l’amertume et la colère suscitées par les tergiversations de M. Barack Obama, son centrisme, ses co mplaisances envers la finance, ont convaincu nombre des ses anciens électeurs que le système politique était non récupérable car contrôlé, quel que soit le parti au pouvoir, par le 1 % d’Américains les plus riches.”
Occuper Wall Street, Le Monde Diplomatique, October 13, 2011

“There, with ‘To Occupy Wall Street’, the bitterness and anger given rise by the tergiversations of Mr. Barack Obama, his centrism, his complaisance towards finance, convinced number of the his former voters that the political system, whichever party is in power, was controlled by and for the 1% of richest Americans.”
