Obama... More Blah, Blah, Blah

Campaign finance reform, stop corporations from contributing to what they view as in their best interest. Shut down the right to free speech.  Blame the Supreme Court, their recent decision (a correct one I might add for Liberty) will be the end of our republic to listen to the ObamaNation.




Now let us take a look at corporate contributions to Obama's presidential campaign. Source David Drake.

Not only does Obama have Big Corporate Interests backing him, he also has an organization of money "bundlers" that out rivals his competition, both Democrat and Republican.
Volkskrant, quoting from an August 21, 2008 New York Times story, notes the following information: 

    But records show that one-third of [Obama's] record-breaking haul has come from donations of $1,000 or more – a total of $112 million, more than Sen. John McCain, Obama’s Republican rival, or Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, his opponent in the Democratic primaries, raised in contributions of that size. Behind those larger donations is a phalanx of more than 500 Obama “bundlers,” fundraisers who have each collected contributions totaling $50,000 or more. Many of the bundlers come from industries with critical interests in Washington. Nearly three dozen of the bundlers have raised more than $500,000 each, including more than a half-dozen who have passed the $1 million mark and one or two who have exceeded $2 million, according to interviews with fundraisers.
Hmmmmmmmmm, industries "with critical interests in Washington." I guess ole Barry McTeleprompter isn't the D.C. "outsider" or "maverick" that he says he is, is he? His Hope and Change is that he Hopes people don't notice how often he Changes who he is. This sums up Barry McTeleprompter.


You can find THE REST HERE.


Sure Barry, tell us more. Coming from a man who had (has) ample Corporate donors and "bundlers" what is your credibility?
