    i could use a laugh

    "WASHINGTON — A few weeks before announcing his re-election campaign, President Obama convened two dozen Wall Street executives, many of them longtime donors, in the White House’s Blue Room....

    ...The event, organized by the Democratic National Committee, kicked off an aggressive push by Mr. Obama to win back the allegiance of one of his most vital sources of campaign cash — in part by trying to convince Wall Street that his policies, far from undercutting the investor class, have helped bring banks and financial markets back to health."

    then you can tell me how you wouldn't express poutrage if this was bush using the white house for fund raising.

    :rofl:

    I'm sure he only invited those Wall Streeters into the office to grill them and put his finger in their faces.

    It is a clear violation of the hatch act. I am a federal employee, and if I tried using my place of business for fundraising they would have my ass on a platter. This is yet another way for Berry to undermine our system.

    Likely moonbat spin: He gathered them together so they can put pressure on corporations to spend the $2T on their balance sheets on creating new jobs.

    That's the ticket.

    You're probably right, that and there is still like $400,000,000,000 missing that I am sure will end up being used in campaigns and payoffs.

    Wall St. colluded with the Government to raid most of the home equity accumulated by the middle class since WWII. Now, they need to find other pigeons to pluck.

    Like this:

    So Obama heads his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness General Electric CEO, Jeffrey Immelt, WHO earned $5.58 million on 2010, and who laid off 3,568 GE workers in that year.



    This would be the same multinational corporation GE ( General Electric's 2011 Untaxed foreign profit: $94 billion) that made billions and not only didn't pays any taxes, but actually GOT MONEY BACK from the government.

    GE incidently, also happens to not only brings good things to life, but operates one of the largest CREDIT COMPANIES ON EARTH

    GE Capital: Middle Market Financing | Retail Credit | Aviation | Energy | Heathcare | Commercial Real Estate

    Is it sinking in YET?

    They're basically the SAME INSIDERS political party folks.

    Two teams, but the same gameplans.
