So. I have been relatively quiet, but I've been watching what the O has been doing, but I want to keep my promise of keeping O's feet to the fire and calling him out on his b.s. This one that I am posting about today got me laughing out loud, because it contains a link to a post that I didn't think I had to keep posting over and over again to remind people of just how much of a liar and hypocrite the O is.
U.S. President Barack Obama used his weekly radio address on Saturday to assail a Supreme Court ruling this week clearing the way for corporations to spend freely on political advertisements, calling it a big victory for special interests and "devastating to the public interest." He added that his administration is working with Congress to develop a bipartisan legislative solution to override the ruling.
"The last thing we need to do is hand more influence to the lobbyists in Washington, or more power to the special interests to tip the outcome of elections," Obama said in his address.
The Supreme Court ruling, narrowly decided on a 5-4 vote, overturned restrictions on campaign financing contained in a law written by Sens. John McCain (R., Ariz.) and Russ Feingold (D., Wisc.), finding them to be an unconstitutional limit on free speech. Obama expressed concern that the decision "opens the floodgates for an unlimited amount of special interest money in our democracy," including by foreign corporations with an interest in the outcome of U.S. elections.
"This ruling strikes at our democracy itself," said Obama.
Really, Oblahma? This is devastating to the public interest? So...I guess you want us all to forget about the money you got from Exelon to kill that bill you were preparing when you were the credit-sucking Senator, huh.
G-d, this is why I rarely post. It just raises my bp all over again. Someone please post something awesome about the Clintons in the next post.
P.S. I called my mother this week and she told me she voted for Scott Brown; that she's sworn off the Demorats after they screwed over Hillary.
