Okay.

Obama is not unique in his dedication to fundraising. Every modern candidate has had to toe this line. The true tragedy is that we care more about strongly worded opinion and perception than hard facts.

If Obama did not fundraise and Romney did, Romney would crush him in the general election.

There, if others want to argue otherwise they are free to. I do not think any rational person would.

>>Obama wouldn't allow the Wall Street thieves to be prosecuted>>

So are republicans finally recognizing the need for regulation where money & power can be abused? You gut regulation like Bush did & it takes awhile to get the offices restaffed & trained & then you go in promising that Obama will fail so you put up roadblocks to divert his efficiency. Then you make stupid comments about government failure. Yes GOP will laugh like the fools they have become.
David Stockman is republican. http://www.truth-out.org/david-stockman-crony-capitalism/1327120119

In 1985 Stockman left government and wrote a book critical of his own years in power: The Triumph of Politics: The Inside Story of the Reagan Revolution. He then took his economic expertise to Wall Street and became an investment banker. Thirty years later, he's writing a new book, with the working title The Triumph of Crony Capitalism.

I sat down with him to talk about how politics and high finance have turned our economy into a private club for members only.

What do you mean by crony capitalism?

DAVID STOCKMAN: Crony capitalism is about the aggressive and proactive use of political resources, lobbying, campaign contributions, influence-peddling of one type or another to gain something from the governmental process that wouldn't otherwise be achievable in the market. And as the time has progressed over the last two or three decades, I think it's gotten much worse. Money dominates politics.

& there are two interviews with him here. Quite interesting.

Really? The republicans are going to sit this one out? You don't make any sense.

lol at that. http://grammarist.com/spelling/shoo-in/

The noun meaning a sure winner is shoo-in, not shoe-in. The term uses the verb shoo, which means to force something to go away. The idea is that the person being shooed-for example, into the winner's circle, into a job, or into a field of award nominees-is such a lock that we can shoo him or her in without hesitation.
Examples

Shoe-in is a common misspelling. For example, these writers use the noun well, but it is spelled wrong:

Don't be afraid. But it's nice that you worry about the "other" Dems.

SK says:
I agree they should be prosecuted. But you people hate government & admire capitalism so much who is going to take them to court? Capitalists? The very ones who laughed all the way to the bank.

Idiots have taken down the wall between money/power & regulation. What did you expect would happen? You tie the hands of courts & wonder why nothing happens.

& in this global economy, who does the prosecuting? There is no world court room. Stop the insanity.

I miss W says:
Unbelievable. The president had a rapper at his fundraiser who spewed the F-word repeatedly. That's the quality of culture the Obamas bring to the White House. Wish I could say I'm shocked.

Oh never mind, Miss explained it. I don't see where President Obama's kids were there.

I'm equally surprised Tyler Perry would condone that language too. I would have loved to see his home.

Atlanta resident Tyler Perry will host fundraisers at his home and at his movie studio in Southwest Atlanta. Grammy winner and Atlanta native Cee Lo Green is scheduled to perform at the studio fundraiser. A third fundraiser is planned at a businessman's Buckhead home. snip

So you think it's ok?
Did you read the lyrics?

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 19, 2012 3:14:19 PM PDT
SK says:
Nope but I don't know that Obama had much to do with it. What would you have done in his place? & again I don't know if Obama's kids were there.

TOPICWAQ says:
I'm sure Obama was familiar with Cee-lo....I didn't say the kids were there...but if he has a problem with Rush using "inappropriate words", wouldn't you think the song lyrics would fall into that same category? You can't even play the original version on FM radio... I assume there were women in the audience...
Again, please remember, Obama made language that disrespected women a HUGE issue....
