So it turns out President Obama received roughly a million dollars of contributions from Goldman Sachs-affiliated executives and employees. Goldman Sachs is currently under public scrutiny for a potential $1 billion of fraud. Remind you of anything?
From the Washington Examiner:
Campaign contributions from Goldman Sachs employees to President Obama are nearly seven times as much as President Bush received from Enron workers, according to numbers on OpenSecrets.org.
President Bush’s connections to Enron were well-hyped during the company’s accounting debacle that rippled through the economy. Time magazine even had an article called, “Bush’s Enron Problem.” The Associated Press ran with the headline, “Bush-backing Enron makes big money off crisis.” David Callaway wrote that Enron for Bush was worse than Whitewater for Clinton.
So that means we can soon expect a story from Time titled “Obama’s Goldman Sachs Problem,” right?
I suppose it won’t matter to the mainstream media that Robert Gibbs said that despite calls for Obama to return the money, he won’t because none of it came from a PAC. And because it won’t matter, the Obama administration will continue arrogantly to do whatever they want, whenever they want, and never worry about the consequences. They know the mainstream media will never hold them accountable for their actions.
But we will.
