It’s a very simple thing to note about the SOTU speech.
Watch this short snippet from the speech.
Oh, how the SCOTUS justices are humiliated! How they must endure the pain and humiliation of being stood up in front of the combined chambers of commerce er Congress sorry and denounced for the Citizens United decision.
It was a deeply unpopular ruling and obvious target for any politician looking for cover from the populist anger raging across America right now.
Then Obama goes on to declare that HE doesn’t think that election campaigns should be bankrolled by big corporations. Oh No! Saint Obama would never believe that!
Here are Barack Obama’s top bundler-donors. Aside from elitist universities, its all big corporations babee. And lookee! Goldman-Sachs! What did they get for their money?
Why, their own Treasury Department! And a continuation of bailouts ("You hated the bank bailout. I hated it" – Barack Obama) that gave the bankers the power to award themselves billions in bonuses.
