Irony seems to be lost on Democrats: they hold $5,000 a plate fundraisers, complain that money is buying and influencing politics, then hit up the fat cat guests to write BIG checks so they can remain in power, and thus buy and influence politics…
Mrs. Obama led the charge this week at a DNC fundraiser:
So, yeah, there’s too much money in politics. There’s special interests that have too much influence. But they had all that money and all that influence back in 2008 and 2012 and we still won those elections,” she said.
And then what did she do? Asked for money of course:
“There is something you can do right now today to make a difference, and that is to write a big, fat check. I kid you not,” she said. “I’m going to be honest with you. That’s what we need you to do right now. We need you to write the biggest, fattest check that you can possibly write.”
