Twice as Bad: Obama Sells America

Remember how bad things were when Bush was president, with fat cats controlling the White House?

"The cynics, the lobbyists, the special interests who've turned our government into a game only they can afford to play,” said then-Sen Obama in his February 2007 announcement speech. “They get the access while you get to write a letter…The time for that kind of politics is over."

Good thing Hope & Change is in the White House, eh? Just ask the Center for Public Integrity.

Nearly 80 percent of those who collected more than $500,000 for Obama took ‘key administration posts,’ as defined by the White House.

Well, at least things are better with Obama in the White House.

“We did look at the administration of George Bush which was widely criticized for appointing donors to these kinds of posts, and they had about the same number in four years that the Obama administration has had in two years,” Schulte said.
