Wal-Mart, Obama, and “Fundamental Transformation”

Is anyone else wondering what is going on with Wal-Mart and the leftist BO regime?  All of a sudden, after at least a decade of being the target of leftist vilification and rage, Wal-Mart is being wooed by Obama and his traitorous horde.  DHS and FLOTUS are cuddling up to Wal-Mart . . . and Wal-Mart is spooning them right back.  Let’s not forget how Wal-Mart came out in support of BO’s government takeover of healthcare; that didn’t really seem to make sense at the time, particularly given Wal-Mart’s shaky history with its employees’ health coverage and poverty-level wages.  Oh, sure, the SEIU hasn’t received the memo and that marriage of convenience between the purple shirts and the yellow smiley face over health care is definitely not going well, but something is going on here.

It seems to me, given Wal-Mart’s history of supporting crap legislation (like cap and tax and the aforementioned job-killing healthcare monstrosity), that Wal-Mart is more than happy to support anything that will push their competitors–small businesses–out of business.  Sky-rocketing health care and energy costs?  Sure, that’s wonderful . . . for massive Wal-Mart.

The free market isn’t free (or much of a market) if the biggest players, abetted by the federal government, manipulate it through regulation and assorted under-handed, dishonest machinations that eliminate all (or certainly most) competition.  This seems pretty obvious, right?  And yet, one can’t help but wonder if this isn’t exactly what this regime and Wal-Mart are doing.   Using socialist progressives to further your own business interests at the expense of the middle class?  What can go wrong?

The unanswered question: what’s in it for the Tyrant in Chief and how does this play into his “fundamental transformation” of our beloved country?
