99% President Raises $1 Billion In Campaign Cash

 

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?

    Funny how he and Romney try to be men of the people yet are supported by the biggest banks and corporations in the world. The only real man of the people in the race is Ron Paul

    Just shows that Obama is so full of crap and he has soooooo many people blinded to it. Hope the Obamabots are disapointed come election time

    He should send all of his rich campaign giving fools a tax form to fill out so they can pay their fair share! If you give to Obama you do not need to pay taxes because he gets what he wants and that is all he cares about it is not the good of America it is what is good for obama

    Your dreaming Emil… Hollywood and the American people have their heads in the sand and believe EVERYTHING the media tells them and they think it’s their own opinion…. So sad that our country has fallen so far ….

    The technical term for that is “biting the hand that feeds you”.

    The “runner up” term is “killing the geese that lay the golden eggs”. MMMMMM that cooked goose was delish … but what happened to our golden egg production????

    Obama is a traitor and a sellout. Where’s Sen. Joe McCarthy when he’s needed? Oh. That’s right. He’s dead.

    My guess is, these people honestly think, once Obama “transforms” the US into a socialist utopia, he will choose them to be one of the VERY few who get to keep the money they earn.

    He’s a complete hypocrite to trash prosperity , but very willing to use it every day for his purposes , and more than willing to participate in being in the wealthy class !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    For the record, members of the House of Representatives aren’t impeached. They can be expelled from the house for violating certain ethics codes by a vote of the house. But there is no impeachment and trial in the Senate. The House can only impeach members of the executive and judiciary branches of government. As much as I agree with the sentiments of the group. The title of this group is Constitutionally Ignorant!

    Not so fast….

    The wealthy know exactly what they are doing: For the True Believers (and Big Banks) They are Buying a POTUS.

    For the rest: They are Buying “Protection.”
