Barack only talks for money


Barack only talks for money

Barack is so full of it.  He wants people to know that they needed to vote in the mid-term.  So what better way to get the word out?
“To a large degree, we are seeing a competition between two stories,” the former president told about 200 people at a high-dollar fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee in Beverly Hills.
“There’s the story that is based largely on fear, and there is a story based largely in hope. There’s the story that says we’re in it together, and there’s the story that says there’s an us and a them,” Obama told DNC Chairman Tom Perez during a conversation at the event. Reporters were allowed in to listen to the 48-minute discussion. The rest of the event was closed to the press.
Barack.  He meets with big donors and talks about what needs to happen.
He was never ‘of the people.’  He proves it every day.  C.I. and I met him when he was running for the US Senate.  What a huge disappointment that was.  He was supposed to be anti-war and everyone was telling us about the ‘great’ speech he gave against the Iraq War.  So we showed up with our checkbooks intending to write huge checks.  Instead, he says that the US is already in Iraq so it doesn’t matter anymore.  I’m dumb founded.  C.I., of course, isn’t and she just gets right to the point asking if he’s saying that it doesn’t matter now which is what he’s saying.  So we tell him what a disappointment he is and leave, no check written.

But that’s Barack.  He’ll only speak to those of us able to write big checks.  He was that way before he got into the Senate and he’s that way today.  I believe the term is “money grubber.”
