Since the time he became a US Senator, Barack Obama has been a typical socialist who constantly preached about redistributing the wealth. By that, socialists mean that you take away the money of the wealthy and give it to the people who don’t want to work to earn money and take care of themselves. He has yet to live up to what he preaches, as he and Michelle both left the White House much wealthier than they were before.
Former President Obama’s upcoming speech to Wall Streeters is putting $400,000 in his pocket – and putting longtime supporters in a difficult situation.
Democratic Party leaders and grass roots activists alike are at a loss to explain how the onetime champion of the 99 percent could cash in with a September address at a health care conference run by investment firm Cantor Fitzgerald.
“Spiritual leader of the people’s #Resistance cashes in with $400k speech to Wall Street bankers,” read one tweet.
Many Democrats and progressives (pretty much the same people) believe that Obama’s speech fee will do a great deal of harm to their cause and the reputation of their Party. It’s ironic that they are just now realizing that Obama has always cared more about Obama than the Democrat Party or the American people. He has always preached one thing and practiced another, and his followers are just now realizing it.
