Big Money Equals Access To Obama

by Steve MacDonald

Some pigs are more equal than others

Some pigs are more equal than others

It’s the Clinton Coffees and the Lincoln Bedroom writ large but with a bit more daylight.  (Who says history doth not repeat?)

OFA, Organizing For A**H***s,  is stating right up front that you can buy access to the President.  Just give them a big bucket of cash and they can get you in touch with the people who run the s**t wagon formerly known as America.

And let me tell you.  Access to these people will greatly increase your odds of getting to sit up front, instead of in back.  (OK, so it is also illegal, unethical, immoral…)

The New York Times says ‘giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the President along with other meetings at the White House.’

Excuse us? This just looks bad. It looks like the White House is selling access. The definition of how you define selling access. If you believe money has a stranglehold over the entire political system, this is ceding the moral high ground. And the President always has, from the moment he first announced his presidential bid in Springfield, six years ago, he stressed the need to curb the influence of special interests in Washington.

I’m now forced to decide which is more surprising to me?  Obama’s convenience-store campaign organ selling access to the crown or the new York Times getting out in front of it; as if even low information voters might realize this is bad?

Watch for OFA to clarify their remarks/policy/intentions and then do it anyway.  I would not be surprised if they run a media campaign to make influence peddling legitimate and or blame “Republican grid-lock” for having to do it in the first place.  Whatever the plan, liberals everywhere will swoon and rush to their defense, checkbooks in hand.

Because some pigs are more equal than others.  (Sweeeee!)

    And they say we don’t have communism, when all around us the signs are pointing inexorably toward an Orwellian dystopia.
    Notice how “OFA” is so flexible, especially after his re-election?
    Nice when we can have fun with that flexibility, too :)

      Oh, and we can play anagrams, so it spells “OAF” – the Obama voter!

    I sure do miss the good ol’ Bush era days, where he would walk amongst the unwashed masses, lending all an unbiased ear…..
