Obama as “snake oil” salesman

Juan Gonzalez is not buying Obama.

Maybe I’m getting old, or have watched too many silver-tongued politicians promise heaven on Earth only to shatter our hopes, but count me a doubter of the Obama revolution….The Democratic candidate of “change,” for example, has raised nearly $100 million in campaign contributions, nearly as much as the Hillary Clinton money machine. Three of his four largest group of bankrollers are executives of Wall Street giants Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers and JPMorgan Chase.

What kind of change is that?….There is much to admire in the Obama campaign, but his attempt to be both champion to the downtrodden and cultivator of corporate titans is not one of them….In a nation suffering from the greatest wealth disparity in its history, those who tell us we can all get along are selling snake oil.

(Compared to HRC, doesn’t Obama have more donors who give lower amounts?)
