    But seriously, I thought that the DNC holding fundraising events in the WH for the sitting President was against the law?

    I'm not surprised. Obama is about big business, always has been. Ain't nothing changed.

    There is a huge difference in being for business in this country promoting free market ideas, and being for business only when you can squeeze them for campaign contributions, and the rest of the time use them as your rhetorical whipping post.

    Surely you know the difference?

    If they're his whipping boys... they sure aren't complaining about it.

    Probably because they know he's done! It is only a matter of time now. Heck Obama can't even fill his appearances anymore.

    But the larger question here is that this is political fund raising being done in the WH by the DNC. Is this, or is this not illegal?

    Business executives despise the free market more than just about anyone else in this country.

    Yes they do. They LOVE government intervention in the market, as long as it comes in the form of subsidies to them, protectionist barriers to trade, or regulations that harm their competitors.

    I understand that Obama needs campaign cash, but there are some things you can compromise on for political expediency and some things that you shouldn't. And reforming our financial system clearly falls into the latter category.
    Took the words right out of my mouth.

    Why is our President inviting the source of the problem to the White House in order to have a quaint little meeting about regulations that could be a solution?

    Don't involve those people at ALL. You are the government - you tell them what to do since they ****ed up so badly.

    Sometimes I think there is no hope for the Republic. The cronyism and career politicians who only care about themselves are screwing us daily.
