Buying Government

Our Saviour in Chief, the same guy who has steadfastly decried the role that money plays in politics, has used the power of his Presidency to appoint those who have donated vast sums of cash to his campaign to lucrative jobs within his administration. WaPo:

Big donors considering whether to work the phones raising money for President Obama’s reelection campaign might consider the fate of his 2008 bundlers. Many of them, it turns out, won plum jobs in his administration.

Obama campaigned on what he called “the most sweeping ethics reform in history” and has frequently criticized the role of money in politics. That hasn’t stopped him from offering government jobs to some of his biggest bundlers, volunteer fundraisers who gather political contributions from other rich donors.

More than half of Obama’s 47 biggest fundraisers, those who collected at least $500,000 for his campaign, have been given administration jobs. Nine more have been appointed to presidential boards and committees.

The man is a fraud who seeks to use his position to steal from some in order to line the pockets of his supporters. He is a political whore who will sell anything for a few dollars. Anyone who decries money in politics (*cough OCCUPY cough*) yet pulls the lever for Obama is full of shit and a fraud. He’s a lying fuck who’ll sell his mother if it meant getting a few more dollars to help secure his power.
