It is what it is…

Put a dollar bill in Obama’s g-string and he’ll follow you anywhere. In January of 2008 the New York Times gave minimal attention, but more than it does now, to the real Barack Obama:

“When residents in Illinois voiced outrage two years ago upon learning that the Exelon Corporation had not disclosed radioactive leaks at one of its nuclear plants, the state’s freshman senator, Barack Obama, took up their cause.

Mr. Obama scolded Exelon and federal regulators for inaction and introduced a bill to require all plant owners to notify state and local authorities immediately of even small leaks.”

That’s how the article began. This is what the article concluded:

“A close look at the path his legislation took tells a very different story. While he initially fought to advance his bill, even holding up a presidential nomination to try to force a hearing on it, Mr. Obama eventually rewrote it to reflect changes sought by Senate Republicans, Exelon and nuclear regulators. The new bill removed language mandating prompt reporting and simply offered guidance to regulators, whom it charged with addressing the issue of unreported leaks.

Those revisions propelled the bill through a crucial committee. But, contrary to Mr. Obama’s comments in Iowa, it ultimately died amid parliamentary wrangling in the full Senate.

“Senator Obama’s staff was sending us copies of the bill to review, and we could see it weakening with each successive draft,” said Joe Cosgrove, a park district director in Will County, Ill., where low-level radioactive runoff had turned up in groundwater. [snip]

Since 2003, executives and employees of Exelon, which is based in Illinois, have contributed at least $227,000 to Mr. Obama’s campaigns for the United States Senate and for president. [snip]

In addition, Mr. Obama’s chief political strategist, David Axelrod, has worked as a consultant to Exelon.”

And you young fools, black fools, liberal fools, fools’ fools thought you had a chance? Stupid is as stupid does.

It’s not just freezing tenants in Chicago, nor Exelon, that should clue the clueless. There is also ObamaCare. You know that ObamaCare is a gangster government enforced extraction of of your money to give to the insurance companies right? You do know by now that ObamaCare is welfare for insurance companies right?

Well, some of us know, but there are others that are just flat out in denial.
