Let me state the obvious right off the bat: Obama is a money-grubbing, vote-buying, lying, cheating liberal politician.
Now let's do a little web surf:
Obama donor received a state grant - LA Times
His letter on behalf of a table tennis company preceded the funding.
The Washington Post notes that Michelle Obama's employer, University of Chicago Medical Center, gave a $650,000 contract to Blackwell Consulting. The son of the owner, Robert Blackwell Jr., a former partner in the consulting firm, is one of her husband's long time fundraisers.
Blackwell not only is a major fundraiser for Obama, but employed him as an attorney – while getting public funds through UCMC from Michelle Obama. Does this sound like a conflict of interest? For one thing, did Blackwell’s payments to Obama for legal services result from any actual work, or was this a method of getting cash to the Obamas while avoiding campaign-finance regulations?
This is ingenious folks! You get tax payer money in the form of grants and earmarks to people who in turn contribute to your campaign. That must be the politics of quick change.
"In 2006, the Chicago Tribune reported that Mrs. Obama’s compensation at the University of Chicago Hospital, where she is a vice president for community affairs, jumped from $121,910 in 2004, just before her husband was elected to the Senate, to $316,962 in 2005, just after he took office."
Guess what happened after Obama took office? He landed her wife's employer a huge $1,000,000.00 earmark.
Do you know what Michelle Obama was doing for the UCH? She was the vice president for community and external affairs. Another "community" scheme by Obamas. I sure would like to know if there are similar positions in other hospitals around the country and if there are what the average salary is. She was previously the executive director for community affairs at the hospital. As a VP she was responsible for all programs and initiatives that involve the relationship between the Hospitals and the community. She also managed of the Hospitals' business diversity program. All liberal mumbo-jumbo for a cushy job created for a senator's wife...
Guess what this "community-organizer's" wife did as a "community relations" manager for this elite hospital? I mean aside from funneling money to cronies.
One of Michelle Obama's signature efforts has been working to relieve crowding in the emergency room, the second-busiest in Chicago. It logs 80,000 visits a year.
Backed by a federal grant, Michelle Obama in 2005 launched the South Side Health Collaborative, under which counselors advise patients with noncritical needs that they can receive care elsewhere at a reduced cost. The medical center said in a report that some patients "make frequent visits to the ER because no one in the family has a personal doctor."
"Obama's goal is to connect people in the community with doctors at [community health] centers, to let them know that they can use those physicians on a regular basis instead of ignoring symptoms until they send them to the ER, where care can cost five times more."
The hospital report quotes Michelle Obama as saying, "The world is seeping in, and our salvation will be the success of our partners" at local clinics.
"The world seeping in". Yes, she worked to keep the community out of this hospital. Liberal elites just can't let "the world seeping in" to their exclusive world. The community just needs to stay poor and miserable and agitated and keep voting for liberal democRATs. Michele Obama did a great job as a liberal elitist.
This is what Obama's politics of change about folks: Same old money-grubbing, vote-buying, lying, cheating, elitist, oppressive liberalism.
