    Some change lol
    Big Corporations own Obama!

    This table lists the top donors to this candidate in the 2008 election cycle. The organizations themselves did not donate , rather the money came from the organization's PAC, its individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals' immediate families. Organization totals include subsidiaries and affiliates.

    Because of contribution limits, organizations that bundle together many individual contributions are often among the top donors to presidential candidates. These contributions can come from the organization's members or employees (and their families). The organization may support one candidate, or hedge its bets by supporting multiple candidates. Groups with national networks of donors - like EMILY's List and Club for Growth - make for particularly big bundlers.

    The following are the top 5 contributors to the candidate of change:

    goldman sachs $605,980
    univ of calf $428,110
    jp morgan chase & co $403,407
    ubs ag $370,130
    citi group $363,454

    top 5 contributing industries

    lawyers and law firms $17,370,876
    misc business $13,391,968
    retired $10,167,470
    securities & investment $8,582,811
    education $6,855,751

    It hardly represents change in the usual politics and the usual players.

    Zubair Ahmed $500
    Khaleel Ahmed $2000
    Both charged with conspiring to kill, kidnap or maim persons outside of the United States.

    Obama has raised $286,000,000 almost all of it from individual donors.

    Your post misrepresents at best.
