Run, Carney. Run!

The Obama Administration’s corruption is staggering. After overlooking the misuse of stimulus funds for Obama’s political cronies and the nomination of political donors for influential public positions (including John Kerry), even MSNBC is stunned: “MSNBC’s Chuck Todd criticized Monday the new fundraising efforts of President Obama’s dark money group, Organizing for Action, calling a scheme for high donors to meet regularly with Obama “the definition of selling access.” Todd was describing the quarterly meetings that will be enjoyed by OFA’s $500,000 donors.”  Disturbingly, “Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House.”

Hilariously, “the organization’s leadership has been courting corporate donors” and Chuck Todd has expressed confusion over the fact that Obama (while campaigning) said he believed that “money has a strangle hold over the entire political system.”

And it gets funnier: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney ran away from the podium while reporters were still questioning him about this issue, after failing “to defend this arrangement” and “implausibly stating that the Obama group is somehow not related to Obama.”
