But maintaining the theory that Obama is really a good-hearted klutz who trips all over himself while he's trying to do the right thing now requires the addition of so many fantastical epicycles to keep it spinning that we should probably just junk it, and look for the star around which Obama and his satellites obviously revolve, and that star is the banks.-Obama Isn't Weak, He's a Traitor
The post makes the observation that Penny Pritzker, a billionaire sub-prime lender, backed Barack Obama when he was nobody politically.
In 2002 Barack Obama was a very undistinguished state senator who had been crushed in a Democratic Congressional primary by Bobby Rush, and his career was in the toilet.
And then the damsel in distress Obama was heroically rescued by a very unlikely white knight, the deeply dishonest but incredibly wealthy Queen of Sub-Prime Banking Penny Pritzker, who hired David Plouffe and David Axelrod to add some charisma to their telegenic talking-head Barack Obama...
And just how wealthy is Pritzker?
Penny Pritzker alone is worth $2.8 billion, and that's just the tip of the iceberg of the Pritzker family's $15 billion fortune.
Did Obama's brilliant or useless career (opinions vary) in the Illinois State Senate suddenly become astoundingly more brilliant between 2002 and 2004 than it was from 1997 to 2002?
Not so anybody noticed.
Did Obama suddenly acquire charisma in 2002? Was a sudden, mysterious onset of charisma that nobody noticed in 2000 the difference between getting crushed in a Democratic Congressional primary and winning a seat in the US Senate?
Or was it the money?
In 2004, unlike 2000, Barack Obama had access to Penny Pritzker's virtually infinite mountain of money, enough money for David Axelrod to overwhelm all other Democratic candidates with a humongous onslaught of slick TV advertising, and Brand Obama was born. The rest is about to be history.-Waterboarding Depositors With Obama's Banker
Barack Obama isn't weak, he's a traitor to the middle class, and the working class, and everybody else except the banks.
