    I guess president Obama likes these wealthy people..

    D.C. lawyer Timothy Broas, who has funneled more money to the political campaigns of President Obama than nearly anyone else, last week was recommended by Mr. Obama as the next U.S. ambassador to the Netherlands.

    As a campaign “bundler,” Mr. Broas collected more than a half-million dollars for Mr. Obama’s 2012 campaign, raising money from family members, colleagues and other wealthy associates; four years ago, he assisted Mr. Obama’s successful bid for the presidency by raising between $200,000 and $500,000.

    According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Mr. Broas becomes the latest of dozens of Obama “bundlers” who are already serving as ambassadors.

    The fundraiser’s selection was first reported by the Center for Public Integrity.

    This election cycle, 117 people have raised $500,000 or more each for the president’s reelection efforts – totaling at least $59 million. That’s at least 40 percent of the $145 million Mr. Obama has raised.

    Then there is this... I am stating this president is a cunning and megalomaniac human being. His thin skinned reactions to fair criticism combined with his abuse of power makes for a president worse then Nixon.

    The notion that Obama doesn't like wealthy people is something the right made up. The fact that it's obviously untrue isn't proof Obama is hypocritical, it's proof that your premise was bullshit to begin with.

    I would have to agree with that assessment.

    There are things you can ding this President on, so making stuff up and pretending like it's true is just a waste of time and energy.

    President Obama is fine with wealthy people..and has said so. His whole position is that it's good to have wealthy people. And they should pay a little more into the system that got them wealthy.

    Seems fair. Since they are using most of the resources.

    Only the wealthy people who donate to him... his abuse of power is outrageous.

    "Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney's donors." In the post, the Obama campaign named and shamed eight private citizens who had donated to his opponent. Describing the givers as all having "less-than-reputable records," the post went on to make the extraordinary accusations that "quite a few" have also been "on the wrong side of the law" and profiting at "the expense of so many Americans."

    These are people like Paul Schorr and Sam and Jeffrey Fox, investors who the site outed for the crime of having "outsourced" jobs. T. Martin Fiorentino is scored for his work for a firm that forecloses on homes. Louis Bacon (a hedge-fund manager), Kent Burton (a "lobbyist") and Thomas O'Malley (an energy CEO) stand accused of profiting from oil. Frank VanderSloot, the CEO of a home-products firm, is slimed as a "bitter foe of the gay rights movement."

    These are wealthy individuals, to be sure, but private citizens nonetheless. Not one holds elected office. Not one is a criminal. Not one has the barest fraction of the position or the power of the U.S. leader who is publicly assaulting them.

    Leave it to you to dismiss abuses of power if the abuser is your guy.

    No he is involved in drone bombings that are killing civilians in Pakistan and Afghanistan- something hypocrites such as yourself condemn the Bush admin of. He is using drones at three times the rate of Bush.

    Like Nixon he is using his power to amass lists of people to attack- unlike Nixon he goes further and attacks private citizens.

    Can you link to Sallow's condemnation of the Bush administration for actions he approves of under the Obama administration? If not, you need to stop using the word "hypocrite" until you learn what it means.
