What the hell he was thinking with "Hope and Change." And what happened to his transparency in government and passing healthcare, without it costing a "thin dime." Oh, where are these bills being discussed on CSPAN for 5 days before a vote.

The guy is a pathological narcissist, and he isn't smart enough to realize he could learn something by listening to "lowly" people like the average (non-rich) American.

If I was already rich enough to get an audience, I'd offer him a yacht or an airplane in return for a couple of billion dollars of taxpayer's money. That's the only thing he knows how to do--trade OUR money for HIS luxuries.

I would ask him how the impacts of lobbying could be mitigated so that companies like Monsanto, Haliburton, Health Insurance Companies etc. have far less say in what happens and the will of the people is more represented.

Despite Obama promising no special access to the president for big donors, if you donate $500,000 to his Organizing for Action, you get guaranteed face time with the president.

So if any of you are very rich, just donate a lot of money to Obama and get a day with him discussing things. As Obama said, we the working class get stuck writing letters that won't be read, while the rich get to visit with the president. To bad he won't Hope and Change that after all.


Hey, you might even get an Ambassador position out of your donation!!!
