I Thought Obama’s Donations Came From The Little Guy

Big Dog

During the last presidential election, Barack Obama broke a promise right out of the starting gate when he declined public funding and went out on his own. He had previously said he would not do that. He raised quite a bit of money and the claim was always that the bulk of it came from small donors. Joe Sixpack and his wife donated their $5s and $10s to support this man.

Of course this was patently absurd. Obama received a lot of money from big donors. He also received money from illegal sources and the lack of security in his online donation page allowed people from foreign countries to donate.

But let us not kid ourselves. Obama received a lot of money from the fat cats in business, the very people the left wants you to believe support only Republicans.

Now it looks like the cash spigot might lead to a drier well as Obama faces some tough challenges in raising money for 2012. The big donors are not happy with him and say their money might go to candidates who need it more.

Obama is also in trouble with the money movers and shakers in New York because of the financial reform law and the inflammatory words Obama used during that debate (good thing one of them did not go on a shooting rampage).

Obama’s team is running into resistance in at least one key fundraising hub — New York City, where some of Obama’s biggest 2008 backers have bitterly protested last year’s passage of financial reform legislation and what they perceived as an unfair bad-mouthing of bankers during the debate.

Some of Obama’s biggest backers in 2008? You can bet your house (if it has not been repossessed) that these biggest backers were not the Joe Sixpack $5 and $10 donors. This article refutes the whole grassroots, little guy thing.

And there are a lot more of these unhappy rich people around the country.

While his campaign made claims of small donors, he received many hefty donations from the fat cats (his words don’t you know).

And now they might be looking for a new savior…

But he will be getting money from the little guy. I just don’t think the little guy has that figured out yet.

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

    Thank goodness that the “Fat Cats” now have a template to judge Owebamma by- and that is a record of failure- his health bill, with the death panels and rationing, is a flop at the box office and anywhere else.
    It is simple math- you cannot add 30, (45?), (50?) million people on the health plans without degrading the quality of the care, as well as the cost (it WON’T go down), and without greatly increasing the amount of doctors.
    Where are we going to get doctors who will work for a pittance?
    Can the govt. ORDER the doctors to treat people against their will? I do not think so.

    What I DO wonder about, is the fact that the Republicans are NOT making their arguments more forcefully while they have the window of opportunity to do so- They need to point out in every media, that the negatives by far outweigh the positives in this FUBARED Owebammacare Act.
    Conservatives first need to get everyone on record(they have now done so in the House- now on to the Senate)- but they need to put things into action that will negate any propaganda coming from the socialist side of the chasm.
