Big money bundlers sit on Obama’s transition team

Pay to play is alive and well in Obama’s Change and Hope America. From USA Today:

President-elect Barack Obama says moneyed interests won’t have an inside track in his White House, but six of the 15 people he named to his transition team are top fundraisers.

Change looks to be slipping away pretty quickly.

    Change Change Change Change Change

    The change has started. They leave no doubt about it. Here is Valerie Jarrett, Co-Chair of Obama’s transition team on Meet the Press yesterday.

    ” Valerie Jarrett, appeared on Meet the Press this weekend and told Tom Brokaw that Obama is ready to “take power” and begin “rule” from day one.”

    Didn’t we fight a war around 1776 so no one would ever ‘rule’ in this country and which Article or Amendment in the Constitution describes our President ‘taking power.’ Those of you that supported Obama–did you vote or was it an oldest son thing?

  3. Randy –

    Thanks for mentioning this comment. I watched the program and couldn’t believe my ears. A lot of radio people are picking up on the comment, too. After the ‘ruling’ starts check out the Emperor’s New Clothes.
