Obama Has A Quid Pro Quo System For Donors?!?

16 04 2012

Former Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy (D-RI) recently suggested Obama has a quid pro quo system when it comes to his campaign donors. Kennedy suggested that it was simply “how this business works,” and continued to say, “If you want to call it ‘quid pro quo, fine.”

Approximately 20% of donors who gave $30,000 or less visited the White House, while 75% of those who donated $100,000 visited the White House. According the the Times, Obama does not usually take donations from lobbyist, but, many of the people who donated to his campaign brought lobbyist guest along on their visits. The Times writers refer to this as the “Lobbyist Buddy System.”

I am not trying to say that what Obama is doing has not been done in the past because it has been done by nearly every other president. The reason this is even being brought up is because Obama campaigned on the fact that he would not be influenced by lobbyist. He wanted to try and fix the corruption that is in Washington, but the fact is that he is simply feeding into this this corruption.

A good resource to see all of the corruption in the Obama administration is Michelle Malkin’s book titled “Culture of Corruption.” It sheds light onto the corruption, like this, in the Obama administration.

Like usual, my sources are below, and please comment so I can tell what y’all think.
