    Interesting title, "buying the president." Should this be allowed?

    Obama has made it into a science...

    Taking political contributions in exchange for giving donors access to Federal tax dollars.

    Think unions and green energy.

    The way Obama does it should not only not be allowed but should be criminal.

    Why not educate yourself and look at the list of top political donors for the past 13 years. How many corporations do you see on the top 20? How many unions? Pay attention to the donkey and elephant icons indicating party preference. Then tell me who "buys" Presidents?

    Liberals are not going to give up their 70 years of control without a fight.

    Democrat donations-good.

    Republian donations-bad.

    The epitome of partisan hackery.

    Wonder why this question brings to mind "GEORGE SOROS"?

    'Course post #4 answers that question, does it not?

    I believe George Soros should be able to do whatever he wants, polititically, with his money.

    I think it's high time to say that we've become, as a nation, the exact thing we opposed.
