Obama Still Pocketing MF Global $$; returned Corzine Ca$h



From the NY Post:


December 26, 2011

President Obama is trying to put some distance between himself and the wreckage of bankrupt brokerage MF Global. But not too much distance.

After returning more than $70,000 to Jon Corzine, the CEO who led MF Global into bankruptcy, the president’s re-election organizations are still hanging onto nearly $150,000 connected to the firm, The Post has learned.

An Obama campaign official said no MF Global donations besides Corzine’s have been refunded. “Contributions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and if the facts merit it, they will be returned,” the official told The Post.

Late Friday, aides revealed that Obama had given in to Republican pressure and returned to Corzine the money the former New Jersey governor and his wife gave to the re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee. The move was an effort by the president to distance himself from the scandal that has erupted in the wake of MF Global’s meltdown.

Before the MF Global episode, Corzine had been a key figure for Wall Street contributions to Obama and was openly being considered for the top spot at the Treasury Department in a second Obama term.

Corzine is not the only connection between MF and Obama. Three other MF honchos, including Corzine’s second-in-command, Brad Abelow, and his wife have given $5,000 to the president’s re-election campaign and another $30,800 to the DNC.

Do the “Occupy 99%’s” realize that Obama who is a “fellow traveler” with them UNDERSTAND that Obama is deep into receiving donation $$’s from Wall Street and those “big evil no gooders”…?

WHY aren’t the “We are the 99%” putting up tents and protesting on the White House lawn?

  1. You’re just complaining for the sake of complaining. Hold Republicans to the same standards and they are far, far worse.



    The ONLY ONE I see complaining is YOU…..

    “Hold Republicans to the same standards and they are far, far worse.”

    Worse than WHO Ben?


    Union money

    Hollywood money

    Wallstreet money

    Tides Foundation money

    George Soros money

    Sierra Club money

    Progressive Democrats of America money

    Progressives for Obama (Progressive America Rising) money

    How about the Natural Resources Defense Council? Seems you like to “park” yourself there.

    Communist Party USA money

    Democratic Socialists of America Money

    Hey, but who is counting……

    ALL politicians receive money for campaigns. Americans SHOULD question donors to campaigns. It seems to try to inject some HONESTY into campaigns whether Democrat or Republican.

    Is MF Global a “toxic” donor? Obama should return all $$ from MF Global since his “bud” Corzine (Who Obama AND Biden praised and whom Obama considered as Treasury Secretary) was the CEO and bankrupted the company.

    Agree Ben?



  2. Is MF Global a “toxic” donor?

    Could be, but so what? Unless you hold Republicans to the same standards, you’re a hypocrite. What we need is campaign finance reform, but Republicans will have none of that. They want even more corruption, and we have these activist right-wing SCOTUS judges repealing existing laws, making the system even worse.

    No, unless laws were broken, Obama shouldn’t return a penny.



    “Is MF Global a “toxic” donor?”

    “Could be but so what?” Are you listening or watching WHAT you type Ben?

    “We have these activist right-wing SCOTUS judges repealing laws”…..that is laughable when you, Ben don’t consider the Liberal activist judges Elena Kagan and Sotomayor. Ginsberg lives, breathes and exudes Liberalism at her core. Fair is fair Ben. Kagan had knowledge and participated in the Obamacare bill, but at this point is NOT recusing herself from any Supreme Court hearings about it.


    What do you think of this Ben?

    White House Gives Nod to Schumer’s Brother-in-Law to Be Federal Judge

    Sen. Charles Schumer’s brother-in-law was quietly nominated this month to a federal judgeship in New Jersey — a move that has some in the Garden State crying political foul, The New York Post has learned.

    Kevin McNulty, who is married to Schumer’s sister, Fran, was named to the U.S. District Court by the White House late on Friday, Dec. 16.

  3. activist judges Elena Kagan and Sotomayor. Ginsberg lives, breathes and exudes Liberalism at her core

    So where is the activism? Just because she’s not in lockstep with the right-wing agenda doesn’t make her an activist. Those who do not follow the Constitution or respect precedent are activists. Those who benefit financially from their decisions are activists.

    Maybe you should stop getting your talking points from Fox “news.” They’re lying to you. And that’s the same corporation that hacked into the phones of 9/11 victims. They benefit financially from keeping people misinformed, angry, and scared. They have no shame, whatsoever.



    “Just because she’s not in lockstep with the right-wing agenda”

    “Those who do not follow the Constitution or respect precedent are activists”…..OMG Ben, are you speaking about Obama or SCOTUS judges?

    Look here: http://americansforprosperity.org/obamachart.php

    “They benefit financially from keeping people misinformed, angry, and scared.”

    The Goebbels newspeak lives/thrives in you Ben. You should be proud. Just because I am NOT a Progressive/Marxist/Maoist/Communist…..you think I don’t have brain cells and the ability to obtain facts/research.

    You are laughable.

    Did you notice I put you in my “T’was the night before Christmas” blog?



  4. Goebbels knew the values of propaganda. He told the ignorant and scared masses that only they had the truth. You won’t find the “facts” you cite on anything except right-wing political sites and Fox “news.” That’s because it’s nothing but propaganda.

    But the real question is: why do you hate our country so much that you feel the need to lie about it?


    Unlike you Ben that NEVER state any links for verification of what you spew. At least those that may read my Romanticpoet comments will ACTUALLY have links to verify information and FACTS.

    “The Big Lie”:

    The phrase was also used in a report prepared during the war by the United States Office of Strategic Services in describing Hitler’s psychological profile:[3][4]

    His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.



    Since you have decided to take your comments WAY OFF TOPIC matter (I know it is hard for you to stay on topic and actually counter FACTS and RESEARCH LINKS), the next bloviating comment you post will go to the trash pile.


  5. Don’t you realize that to a liberal “facts” are of no concern to them, as it only tends to confuse them. The ramblings of liberals remind me of a quote that I heard years ago: “If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit”. And believe me, they have plenty of that!
