Obama's Money: Lehman Bros, Bear Stearns, Fannie and Freddie...

Barack Obama wants "change," but he's not interested in small change, no sir. He's been getting the Big Bucks, from many of the big playaz in the current economic crisis. "Native Americans Against Obama" posted the following numbers. It is essential reading for everybody. Unfortunately, the majority of the Big Media are too much in the tank for the Democrats to share this information with you. Senator Obama’s pulling down almost $300,000 a year from Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, AIG, Countrywide Financial, and Washington Mutual? He has not even completed his fourth year in the Senate and received a total of $1,093,329.00 from these eight companies and their employees. (all data from OpenSecrets.org). John McCain’s numbers, according to OpenSecrets.org for the period 1990-2008 (i.e., 18 years worth of data) only collected $549,584.00. In other words, Barack is receiving $273,582.25 (and 2008 is not over) per year while McCain raised a paltry $30,532.44.
