Since all of you are political junkies, as I am, you’ve already read about Glenn Thrush’s e-book, which shows tremendous disarray in the Obama campaign, not to mention highlighting the fact that Obama hates Romney and is in this to win, never mind that he has nothing to offer the American people. I won’t rehash that. I’d just like to link together two paragraphs that come from separate points in Glenn Thrush’s article shilling his upcoming book:
Obama still believes Citizens United, the 2010 Supreme Court decision that unleashed the super PACs, poses a huge threat to representative democracy by equating the largesse of self-serving billionaires with free speech.
To give Obama a break from the relentless negativity of the campaign, friend and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett quietly set up a salon/dinner for Obama over the summer — which lasted more than two hours, a huge block of presidential time.
On hand were Jarrett’s friend and Steve Jobs biographer Walter Isaacson, Facebook billionaire and new New Republic Publisher Chris Hughes, and Apple executive Scott Forstall, who led the team that developed the iPhone.
Apparently you’re not a self-serving billionaire if you serve Barack Obama. (I assume that George Soros falls into that same “altruistic” category.)
