Obama often tells us he understands the little guy, but his ties to deep pockets and ability to raise ultra money shows everything but. In fact, he just crossed a BILLION dollars raised!
President Barack Obama has become the first political $1 billion man.
He’s the first politician to take in that stratospheric number in donations during his political career, according to data collected by the Center for Responsive Politics.
His total take reached $1,017,892,305 in April, some nine years after he began his 2004 race for the Senate. Obama is widely expected to raise at least $300 million more before November.
President George W. Bush, in contrast, raised roughly $430 million despite running two complete presidential races and bearing the brunt of Democrats’ claims that he was a pawn of bankers, oil companies, coal magnates and defense contractors.
How is it that a guy spends most of his time trashing wealth and prosperity, yet his entire ability to trash wealth and prosperity depends on money created through wealth and prosperity?
