David Plouffe (rhymes with ‘fluff”) is one of the most powerful unelected officials in the United States, “a key member of Obama’s inner circle, a confidant whose desk is just steps from the Oval Office,” according to the liberal Washington Post. Plouffe is also a rich man, who got that way as a result of his political activities, including accepting a cool hundred grand for 2 speeches to a company deeply in bed with the Iranian government, a company which supplied technology to the mullahs quite useful in repressing the Green Revolution in 2009.
This looks very, very bad. And it is the tip of the iceberg on the (so far) unreported story of how the Obama inner circle of Chicago political operatives have managed to become rich in politics.
Illinois State Representative Derrick Smith who was arrested last week and charged for accepting a $7000 bribe from a government informant, to write a lettersupporting a state grant for a day care center, had no trouble winning his democratic primary last night in Chicago.
Socialism is not the Answer

The more I understand people, the more I like my dog.
I guess they got to the Judge in Georgia but at least he still has his knee caps. Neither Obama or his Lawyer provided any evidence, in fact, neither one appeared in court. That alone tells me they got to the Judge.
With so much corruption and cover-up from this adminstration, you have to ask yourself, can anything stick on Obama? They got Nixon on far less.
During World War II, posters displaying the slogan “Loose lips might sink ships” reminded service members and civilians alike to avoid indiscreet discussions about secure information that could be exploited by the enemy and used against America during wartime. People understood that freedom of speech did not give them license to spill their guts because national security was vital to victory and victory was paramount to America’s survival.
But that was then. Today, we have an administration that embraces a “Loose Lips For Political Expediency” philosophy. (No, I’m not talking about Vice President Biden.) Case in point: A headline I read the other day titled “SEALs becoming [the] face of Obama’s defense strategy.” Say, what?

No matter how you rearrange President Obama’s inner circle, it still looks, smells and tastes like a rotten Chicago deep-dish pizza.
Ready for the latest topping on this moldy old pie? It’s a possible chief of staff slot for Wall Street banker/lawyer/wheeler-dealer William Daley, brother of outgoing Chicago mayor/machine politics mastermind Richard M. Daley (also the former boss of White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett and first lady Michelle Obama), whose retirement paved the way for former Obama chief of staff and Chicago mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel. Phew.
