During the 2009 State of the Union address, President Barack Obama used sharp, pointed language to rail against the Supreme Court for that body’s reversal of legislation to limit campaign spending.
Obama’s words and body language conveyed deep disagreement and resentment based on Obama’s self-righteous indignation over the issue.
As reported at the reference, in part, Obama slammed the SCOTUS for opening the flood gates to special interests.
His exact words:
"Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections," Obama said. "Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities. They should be decided by the American people, and that’s why I’m urging Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to right this wrong."Obama’s indignation, however, has given way to political expediency when it comes to his reelection campaign which, according to Reference 2, in part, may rake in a cool one billion dollars:
"President Obama's re-election campaign raked in $42 million last quarter, which, added to the Democratic National Committee's $26 million, brought the joint Obama-DNC haul for 2011 to roughly $250 million. Impressive, yes, but less so when you consider the Obama campaign's reported $1 billion target — talked up by some Democrats and plenty of Republicans, but dismissed as "bullsh**t" by Obama campaign manager Jim Messina and now clearly out of reach. In fact, says Glenn Thrush in Politico, the "myth of Obama's 'billion-dollar' money bomb" may have convinced Dems that Obama has the fundraising locked up, and dissuaded them from donating.”
Of course, the need for ungodly amounts of cash is made absolutely necessary by the fact that the Obama Presidency has been a complete and unmitigated failure. Indeed, it may take every single penny in that billion-dollar cache to give Obama any sort of chance at fooling the American people a second time this November.
As usual, Obama is a hypocrite through and through. The man has allegiance to no principle of decency: He operates on the theory of “Its my way or the highway!”
Corruption must be stomped out at all costs: Except when it comes to the Obama brand!
Wake up America: We desperately need regime change right here at home!
