Example 4893758 why Obama cannot be trusted

Weekly radio address (prepared, apparently, before his golf game):

As the political season heats up, Americans are already being inundated with the usual phone calls, mailings, and TV ads from campaigns all across the country. But this summer, they’re also seeing a flood of attack ads run by shadowy groups with harmless-sounding names. We don’t know who’s behind these ads and we don’t know who’s paying for them.

The reason this is happening is because of a decision by the Supreme Court in the Citizens United case – a decision that now allows big corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence our elections. They can buy millions of dollars worth of TV ads – and worst of all, they don’t even have to reveal who is actually paying for them. You don’t know if it’s a foreign-controlled corporation. You don’t know if it’s BP. You don’t know if it’s a big insurance company or a Wall Street Bank. A group can hide behind a phony name like “Citizens for a Better Future,” even if a more accurate name would be “Corporations for Weaker Oversight.” …

Well, we cannot allow the corporate takeover of our democracy.

Oooh, big scary words. Well, “You Lie”, Mr. President. “Corporate takeover” of our democracy? Try Union takeover.

Unions have spent $9.7 million while corporations have spent $3.4 million.

Now, I’m no wiz at math, but I’m pretty sure 9.7 is MORE THAN 3.4. More than (counting fingers and toes) double.

  1. Average Braindead Liberal Says:

    But the sainted unions are only spending that much money because the evil corporations are forcing them to, to fight against the lies of the evil corporations.

    The sainted unions are looking out for the people. Who are those evil corporations looking out for, huh? HUH???

    And besides, the sainted unions only want to make sure people have jobs. No evil corporation has ever created a single job in the history of time, because they are Evil.

    So sayeth Obama (PBUH).
