In his weekly radio and Internet message Obama said that the 5-4 decision of the Supreme Court easing limits on political donations by corporations and unions, was unacceptable.
“This ruling opens the floodgates for an unlimited amount of special interest money into our democracy,” the president said. “It gives the special interest lobbyists new leverage to spend millions on advertising to persuade elected officials to vote their way — or to punish those who don’t.”
Obama said that means public servants who stand up to Wall Street banks, oil companies, health insurers and other powerful interests could find themselves under attack when election time rolls around.
First of all the characterizations that I would use to describe the Government employees is not “public servants”! They are not servants in any way you slice it!
A servant does the bid of his master, and we the voters are the supposed master of the government. We voted them into office, and most if not all government jobs are subject to political patronage even to the local level of township government.
This past year, and it seems longer than a year. The Democrats and the White House have acted like we are the serfs and they are the landholders who can do whatever they decide is best for them and we just have to take it without recourse.
Of course Virginia, New Jersey and now Massachusetts have sent a message to the White House and Congress that we the voters will not allow the Federal government to spoon feed a lot of government bovine excrement that gives the government more power over our lives!
Unfortunately Obama refuses to get the message. He is such a progressive, left-wing ideolog that he protests and wants to over ride the Supreme Court decision in this instance only! This is because as it stands now Unions and leftist special interest groups like George Soros can give unlimited millions to re-elect him. If he accepts the decision the curtain will come down on him and his Left wingnut friends from Chicago in 2010!
