The Money Behind Obama Is Big Money

The supposed "small money" behind Barack Obama is a myth. A new book about Obama , Renegade by Richard Wolffe, says as much. Wolffe had close access to Obama during the Presidential election campaign.

In a review, Leonard Doyle of London's Telegraph writes:

Despite the candidate’s promise of transparency there was plenty of sleight of hand from the Obama camp during the campaign. The greatest fiction was the myth that the campaign’s vast war chest was raised online in $5 and $10 donations from hundreds of thousands of people.

“It wasn’t the Internet,” admitted Penny Pritzker, who headed Mr Obama’s national finance committee. It was in fact, classic old fashioned high dollar contributions from wealthy Americans

It's pretty easy to spot who is behind Obama, just watch where government money flows, unions and Goldman Sachs are at the top of the list.
