Obama’s billion dollar hypocrisy

There is nothing that reminds me that the sun has come up and we have entered another day like a democrat complaining about millionaires. We’ve all come to expect the constant refrain of rich bashing whenever democrats feel the need to deflect from their job performance. This is an expected and accepted part of American heritage at this point.

The most visible example of this idiocy recently is the Obama campaign’s singling out of Romney donors, aka the enemies list. We’ve come to a point where the President of the United States is comfortable naming rich people, using some variant of the “less-than-reputable” accusation, and acting as if that makes their political enemies into enemies of the state.

But, lost in this rich person vilification is the truth. That President Obama is President today because of his insanely large financial advantage over John McCain in 2008.

Imagine the balls you have to possess to seriously accuse Republicans of having too many millionaire donors and abusing the campaign finance system when you are President precisely because you outspent your opponent by over $500 million dollars. I had forgotten the gap was that ridiculous, and other outside spending surely cushioned it, but Obama outraised McCain $771 million to $239 million.

In that race, Obama raised an astonishing $771 million while McCain brought in $239 million — a total that included roughly $85 million in public financing funds for the general election.

 

In reality, McCain managed to only raise $154 million before matching funds, which I dare say is insanely pathetic. If nothing else, that should shut up every GOP insider when they say we should choose the least inspiring most moderate republican in the race every four years. At least those evil tea party extremist bastards can raise money.

On the other side, Obama broke his promise to take federal matching funds , broke his promise to hire lobbyists and other power players, and embraced the big money donors he vilifies.

Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, media mogul Fred Eychaner, Pfizer executive Sally Susman, Stoneyfield Farms president and CEO Gary Hirschberg, and Microsoft executives Suzi Levine and John Frank. Several have each raised more than half a million dollars for 2012, according to estimates provided by Obama’s campaign.

Let us not forget when George Clooney and his Hollywood friends helped him raise 15 million in one dinner.

 

And you better have rich friends with big wallets, when you need to raise a billion dollars on the back of hypocrisy.

Since launching his campaign about 13 months ago, Obama has held more fundraisers than most recent presidents combined, bringing in $233 million from big donors so far.

Contrast this to Obama version 1.0, when he used to disparage fancy dinners with five digit per place price tags for the ultra elite:

“The convention’s for sale, right. You got these $10,000-a-plate dinners and Golden Circles Clubs. I think when the average voter looks at that, they rightly feel they’re locked out of the process. They can’t attend a $10,000 breakfast and they know that those who can are going to get the kind of access they can’t imagine.” 

By the way, the price tag for the Clooney-Hollywood dinner was $40,000 a plate. Four times the amount he said gets you “access” that you “can’t imagine.”

You’re right Mr. 2006 Obama. The average voter does feel locked out. Thanks for dead bolting the door shut.

    I see no statesmanship in what I have read here by readers: only childish ranting and emotional name calling.  We will fall beneath the waves – in the very near future – if that is all we can do in the face of our disappointment, despair, and hopelessness.  To call a misguided, even dumb person a name as we fume away, is to take our eyes off the ball while we dote on feeling superior and self-satisfied. Jesus eva;uated that tactic.  He said that it was effective in making another appear weak, but it demeaned the name caller.  In fact, he warned that name-calling was murder: an attempt to destroy the opponent.  (See the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5:22 u in particular),  

    Where are the responders who are interested in facing the situation  and honestly are trying to change attitudes?  First, said Jesus, you genuinely love God more than anything or anyone else (Deuteronomy 6:4).  Then you look for the goodness of God in everyone you encounter. (Leviticus 19:18)  That’s what his forebearers said before him in the creed of Israel, the Shema. That’s what some of those in the gas chambers still chanted as they died.  Even if it cost them their lives, they would hold on to what was supremely precious  in this world and beyond. 

    Our childish self-centeredness, our puffed-up egos claiming to be superior in all things – will bring us to disaster.

    Skip the name calling.  Get down to the business of hunting for and working with, the wisest and the best.

    Did you hear the story about the abandoned Zanzibarian Islamic Muslim boy from eastern Africa who grew up to write a made up book of make believe stories.   It should be a Movie by October, 2012.   
    I am not happy with Mitt Romney backing off on any vetting of the abandoned boy from eastern, Africa.   Why would you chop the head off of fellow GOP and not a progressive
    in democratic clothing. Unless, of course, you are same as John McCain. Not a good sign.

    The average person has to stop watching Dancing with the Stars and not so real “reality” tv and get involved with everything that is happening with “our” country!  We need to be informed and vote for the best of the candidates that are running.  I know its difficult when you feel that sometimes you have to vote for the worst of 2 evils but when we vote we need to be informed and vote with a good heart.  We all know that unions destroy competitiveness and we all know that hand outs really dont work in the long run, ( that’s why Jesus taught the people HOW to fish not just give them fish) and everyone knows that when you take morals out of schools and pretend this is the best for everyone we need to stand tall and ask if what we are doing right now would make our mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, siblings, friends proud to be part of our lives are we truly doing what we were meant to be here for?

    Stu, you are so right about this. Since President Obama is part of the Black Elite and wealthy as anything he needs to stop snarking at rich people like having money was some sort of disease. Maybe the public is partly to blame. After all, we vote for rich people to be president. There should be a way to elet a poor person for that job. As it is whoever gets to be in the White House probably doesn’t even notice all the gourmet food and special things that they get since they are used to being pampered anyway. THAT is so wrong.

    The problem is not the Constitution but the failure of the people to hold their representatives accountable to it. And just by the way, it has always been the problem. It is also intentional. 

    If you are an elite, you remain an elite by separating commons from their influence (which, honestly, is much greater than theirs). Disenfranchisement has always been the most effective strategy toward this end. Elites want you to throw up your hands. They want you to sell yourself on the idea you have no influence so you will believe you need them as an advocate.

    There is no greater method of taking one’s liberty than to convince them to give it to you, freely.

My Hollywood friends have such nice dinners for me and give me lots of money, and are such savvy political experts, plus they offer me free advertising to all their fans, so I MUST be a really good President.  I feel this qualifies me to run the country any which way I please, so damn you all AND your Constitution to hell, that outdated bag of wind!…ooh, Reverend Wright would be SO PROUD of me!”)Biased Media (“You darned Birthers!”  Oh sorry, that was supposed to be under Name-calling, my bad!)Finger-Pointing (“Of course it can’t be ME, PRESIDENT Obama, the one who RUNS everything.  OR my Democrat-run SENATE.  It was BUSH” (who left office over 3.5 years ago), “and his Republican-controlled CONGRESS” (who actually lost control over 5.5 years ago), “who’re STILL TO BLAME for continuously ruining our economy!”)  (…and if THAT excuse fails, “I think it was Greece or the EU, that’s who everyone’s blaming now anyways!”)Media hype ( CNN & MSNBC: “Goody goody, so tell me again how many jobs we gained this year with all that stimulus?  Was that 2.9 Trillion or 3.9 Trillion?”  ”What?  That’s the real cost over and above what we were told by the Whitehouse that taxpayers would be paying for OBAMACARE?  The CBO numbers MUST be wrong! (But either way, I’m sure people mostly have forgotten about that whole OBAMACARE thingy anyways by now, since we almost NEVER mention it on here anymore, so whatever!)   Looks like we’re still down over a billion on the job thingy, but who cares when you can fudge the numbers any which way you want to, and omit the jobless who are over 62, under 18 or in college, and the millions who’ve either already dropped off the unemployment payrolls after nearly 2 years, or who never collected?  Thank God there are still lots of snail stories to distract everyone!”)Lies AKA Deception  (Axelrod #1: ”We are NOT engaging in negative ads against Romney, they are all quite positive.”  ”Oh so, Romney did  What when he was Governor?   What while at BAIN?  Not Again?”  ”He said he wouldn’t do What to OSAMA bin LADEN?”  Oh, too bad!  Not even a grain of truth because nothing was ever verified by the Obama camp before we finger-pointed AGAIN, in all the national media outlets no less!”  (see all above).   #2: “All Obama’s stimulus plans have worked and we now find ourselves in a complete recovery, so let’s keep spending money like no tomorrow, it seems to have worked really well for the EU!”  Plus, many, many more fun examples!Taking credit for anything good that happens (Obama cheering loudly:  ”I killed OSAMA, I killed OSAMA!”) and ignoring anything bad (Reverend Wright, anyone?  Obama’s niggling conscience softly chastising: “I killed the economy, I killed the economy!-Oh DO shut up!”). Sorry, that last bit about the conscience can not be possible, so please strike that, I’m sure it was Biased anyways.So, I guess It’s not really about winning on the ISSUES, it’s all about winning by using LIES, NAME-CALLING and UNDERHANDED and UNETHICAL tactics.  Go Democrats!

    Agreed, Reality TV really sucks.
    Sadly, most people in the US either don’t really want to know what’s going on with our leaders or lack thereof, or just don’t want to be bothered to take the time to learn.

    I guess you should go Occupy Something with a really ignorant comment like that.  Surely you must hate America and all it stands for, since you haven’t bothered to educate yourself at all about how our country runs and is governed.  The Constitution of the United States is what has held our country together for almost 250 years, guarantees all citizens rights and many freedoms, and keeps America great compared to many other countries that don’t guarantee any freedoms to the individuals, only to the “state” or ‘government” or “heads of state”, such as dictators like Hugo Chavez.  Perhaps you should go live down there in Venezuela, and see just how much of our precious freedoms you have because of our great Constitution, the one you take for granted every day.  Almost all those folks down there would kill to live here, I’d wager.  They have almost everything taken from them and it’s getting worse all the time: education, homes, jobs, freedoms like religion and travel, prosperity, rights like voting and free speech, businesses, property, and family members only to name a few…
