Today, the Obama Campaign released a fundraising email with the subject line “For those of us with credit cards, mortgages, or student loans” that used many words to escape the reality of his failed promises. This is how their email should have read if accurate:
President Obama has been saying for months he won’t wait around for Congress to get middle-class families and working Americans back on their feet. He’ll work with Congress when he can, but when they subpoena one of his donors three times — he will go silent.
So today the President has ignored that the man he called his own “Wall Street guy” broke a cardinal rule of Wall Street and raided customer accounts to try to keep his Wall Street firm afloat. The company declared bankruptcy and over two months later regulators still can’t figure out what Jon Corzine did with the money that rightfully belonged to main street Americans.
The issue isn’t his qualifications: Corzine has been one of Obama’s biggest supporters, raising over $500,000 for his reelection campaign and was Obama’s liaison to Wall Street which has already given Obama over $15 million – more than what all of the Republicans have raised from Wall Street combined.
We can’t afford to continue allowing Wall Street to write its own rules. But the Obama campaign can’t afford to not let them write their own rules — because at the end of the day, Obama is just interested in getting reelected and not governing.
See All That Corzine Has Done For And With The Obama Administration
Without Jon Corzine, Obama wouldn’t have done such a good job with the stimulus. Corzine, after all, “wasn’t just the first governor to pass an economic recovery plan for his state; he was an ally with the Obama administration in helping develop a national recovery plan” that we called the stimulus.
That’s what this campaign is all about: electing a President who makes sure everyone plays by the same rules and gets a fair shake, unless of course they raise money for us, in which case they get a better deal, just ask Solyndra’s investors.
Ask President Obama why he hasn’t said anything about Jon Corzine, MF Global, and the $1.2 billion missing from Americans’ accounts.
