As if loyal Creeder Readers needed assurance, The Campaign for Working Families PAC tells us why it was cool to not vote for Obama ... mainly 'cause he's a leftist hypocrite with no peer.

To wit:

Today’s Washington Times reports that the Obama White House has "quietly rewarded scores of top Democratic donors with VIP access to the White House, private briefings with administration advisers and invitations to important speeches and town-hall meetings." Really? And I thought President Obama was supposed to change Washington. In fact, Candidate Obama said he would crack down on "the disproportionate influence of lobbyists and special interest.”

But according to the
Times report, the Obama White House, which we were told would be "the most open and transparent administration in history," is promising major donors "access to senior White House officials in exchange for pledges to donate $30,400 personally or to bundle $300,000 in contributions ahead of the 2010 midterm elections." One top donor was given access to the Oval Office – as a birthday present. Another donor and his family got to use the White House bowling alley. Other big givers get to watch movies with the Obamas in the White House theater.

CBS’s Mark Knoller reports that President Obama has held 23 fundraisers in his first nine months in office – that’s nearly four times as many as George W. Bush held in his first nine months!

Responding to the
Washington Times report, RNC Chairman Michael Steele said, "Bill Clinton turned the White House into a hotel and coffee shop. Now President Obama has turned the White House into a full service resort complete with amenities for the highest Democrat bidder. The seriousness of this issue requires an immediate investigation. ... Candidate Obama pledged to clean up the muddy waters of Washington, but President Obama has jumped in head first."

Running my own political action committee, I’ll be the first to acknowledge the importance of money in politics. It’s a simple fact that nine times out of ten, the candidate with the most money wins. But Obama’s hypocrisy and the history of Democrat corruption – from ACORN’s "muscle for money" program to the Clinton White House fundraising scandals – cannot be ignored. Steele is right to demand an investigation.
