In the 1970s we had The Six Million Dollar Man television series starring Lee Majors. As of April 2012, President Barack Obama can claim the title of “The One Billion Dollar Man.” My, the cost of inflation these days. In eight short years of his political career, Obama has amassed over $1 billion in political campaign donations, a sure sign to some of his harshest critics that he is the political antichrist.
As reported by The Daily Caller, a conservative online news site, Obama’s big campaign donors are from those who share his background and vision. “His top sources of funding are the sectors and companies that employ people like him — people with post-graduate degrees form elite universities. The top sources are the University of California, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft Corp., Harvard University and Google, each of which provided him with $1 million or more. The University of California topped the list at $1.98 million.”
Obama’s presidency is proving that whether it’s a Democrat or Republican temporary occupant, White House fundraising is a bipartisan money machine. Ask many Americans and they will tell you that we aren’t getting the best politics money can buy.
