Obama Rakes In the Lobbyist $$ From Fannie/Freddie

Those contributions, however, are from the lobbyists who represented the failed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Obama, having been a Senator for a mere four years, out-received (to coin a new term) lobbyists dollars for even John Kerry who has been in the Senate for decades. Click the post title for the story from John Gibson at Fox News.

Some icing on the cake of incrimination: Franklin Raines and Jim Johnson in recent years were at the helm of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. They are both current advisers to and supporters of Barack Obama. Do we want a possible future President getting his economic advice from the very people who perpetrated this current financial mess on our country?
