Obama’s Big Sellout

Unbelievable article in Rolling Stone slamming Obama and the people with whom he’s surrounded himself. During the campaign, he slammed Bush for cronyism, the act of hiring people who are friends or family. Obama puts Bush to shame with his own version. This guy is downright shady in his dealings. The author of the article, Matt Taibbi shows incredible detail and research by proving and listing everyone involved. I will warn you that there are some bad words as only Rolling Stone can get away with. The piece is long, but well worth it if you want to know the real agenda behind the most dishonest president in our history and his cronies. You might want to get yourself something to nibble on and a drink before sinking your teeth into this one. So sit backĀ  and read the story of Obama and his crooked little friends. Enjoy.

Obama and his Wall Street cronies

Barack Obama ran for president as a man of the people, standing up to Wall Street as the global economy melted down in that fateful fall of 2008. He pushed a tax plan to soak the rich, ripped NAFTA for hurting the middle class and tore into John McCain for supporting a bankruptcy bill that sided with wealthy bankers “at the expense of hardworking Americans.” Obama may not have run to the left of Samuel Gompers or Cesar Chavez, but it’s not like you saw him on the campaign trail flanked by bankers from Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. What inspired supporters who pushed him to his historic win was the sense that a genuine outsider was finally breaking into an exclusive club, that walls were being torn down, that things were, for lack of a better or more specific term, changing.

Then he got elected.
