How Does Obama Get Away With This??!!

Barack Obama has on more than one occasion touted himself as "mainstream" or "middle-class" American! So much so that he opted out of public funding of his campaign because his "private" donors were more than up for the challenge. What I want to know from his supporters is just how you let this man get away with insulting your intelligence at every turn? In April Obama attended a huge fundraiser in San Francisco, California. Oh, you didn't hear about this? Do you know why? Because Obama didn't want you to know and furthermore to decrease the possibility of many people finding out, the press was not invited either! The main reason he didn't want you, the everyday citizen, to know about it is because he was in attendance by some of the richest, most elite people in the world much less the USA! Here is an article which chronicles where and with whom this fundraiser took place. http://www.zombietime.com/obama_visits_billionaires_row/ Obama is lying to you, Obamites, and every citizen of the U.S. when he tells of how his campaign is financed by the "little man" because, as you will see from the next two articles, it is coming from people who are far from little! http://www.newser.com/story/37648/star-studded-wallets-come-out-for-obama-fundraiser.html http://www.newser.com/story/35163/obama-scores-78m-in-san-francisco-blitz.html I don't know about you people but I couldn't afford a fundraiser price tag of $28,500, could you?

Rodney, haven't you been paying attention? Taskr clearly informed me, and everyone who read my thread about Palin's upcoming $50,000 a plate dinner here in Florida, that presidential campaigns are expensive so fundraising is very important. Is it your contention that the rich should be ignored by the candidates? Or that the common folk can raise the kind of money that some of these events are designed to raise?

Spalladino, The main difference here is McCain is not trying to hide anything! Also, McCain agreed to public campaign financing and Obama, after agreeing, opted out because he was doing so much better in the private sector. I believe that if Obama was under the same microscope the MSM puts McCain and Palin under there would be a lot of "oh NO's!" from the left side of the floor.

McCain tells you (plural, his followers, not just you) the same thing and does exactly the same thing. Here's a link to a story about an invitation only event McCain held in Ohio: [i]McCain to have private events in Cleveland on Tuesday By Stephanie Warsmith Beacon Journal staff writer POSTED: 09:05 a.m. EDT, Sep 22, 2008 Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain will fly into Cleveland tonight for several events in the area Tuesday. The events will be invitation only. The campaign was expected to release additional details later today. McCain will arrive in Cleveland about 8:30 p.m. He was last in Ohio a week ago, when he and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, his running mate, held a rally in the Youngstown area that drew more than 7,000 people. [/i] http://www.ohio.com/news/break_news/29237084.html What promises and concessions do you suppose took place then at at the numerous other events both of us could turn up? I wonder.

Spalladino, Thanks for your comment. No, I'm not contending that the rich should be ignored. What is relavent here is how Obama tells you(plural, his followers, not just you)in one breath that you are most important because he embodies your ideals and concerns and then turns around, in secret (or he had hoped it would be)and panders to the rich, I can't see anyone taking him seriously! What promises and concessions do you suppose took place at the private home of Mr Getty or Abbassi? I wonder.

Wrong, wrong, wrong... This is another Republican tactic to make Obama look bad. Keep digging, it disgusts most of us to know that Republicans have made money off of "us" every year they have spent in office. Some of us know how to search and get the run-down of who has put our Nation into the situation it is in NOW. Why don't you guys do something like - go find where certain military records were hid!

No one is for certain what really goes on with the people running they could both be lying their butts off, I have heard bad things about Obama and McCain, it's all part of deciding and yes people are going to say crap about whoever they are against, but yes if Obama really is doing this than that is messed up, but the other night I heard McCain talking crap about him just letting his right hand "Sarah" do all the work for him and that he knows she is going to be the reason he wins presidency.

The first link did mention Sara and Sohaib but did not mention that they are Muslims who are well know for: An Islamic studies program and a professorship have been initiated at the prestigious Stanford University, California, with an endowment of US $9 million. A significant aspect of the program is the generous donation of 2.5 million dollars by a Pakistani couple, Sara and Sohaib Abbasi. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoaib_Abbasi Does it not sound strange that a Pakinstani couple would be supportive of Obama when he denies having any attachment to Muslims or Islam?????

Obama gets away with this because we have and have had an extremely biased media in this country for decades. Although this is the most blatant bias I have ever seen. When has Obama EVER been called on his behaviour? Where was the media when the FISA vote took place? Why isn't the media demanding that his transcripts from Columbia be released, or his medical records? And before anyone tries, no they weren't. His medical "record" was just a one sheet assessment by his doctor with no details.

Thank you for providing this information here - it is definitely information that we all need to evaluate before we vote!
