President O.

In 2009, President Barack Obama said he didn’t run for office to help out “fat cat bankers,” but it appears that he has no problem with fat cat bankers — or the fat cat law firms who represent them — helping him.

Monday night, Obama will attend a private fundraiser hosted by Dwight Bush, president of Urban Trust Bank, and his wife Antoinette, a partner at the international law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher, and Flom. Skadden is the firm hired to handle the bankruptcy of MF Global, the large Wall Street firm headed by Jon Corzine, former governor of New Jersey and a strong ally of President Obama.

Tickets for the event are at least $17,900 per person.

Yeah, he's gonna put on his Mean Face.

Right before he does the quid pro quo thing.

The more things change the more they stay deranged.

Obama is complicit - he'll be obliged to listen to us now that much of his screwball banking connections are drying up.

He sure likes to play both sides of the fence.

Nothing to see here. Bankster/Bundlers like Rubin, Corzine, Dimon, Fuld , love the "O". Bill Daley his chief of staff from Chase was brought in to raise cash from the banksters.

Corzine — a former Goldman Sachs chairman — is a major bundler for Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. Overall, Corzine has raised more than $500,000 for Obama.

Corzine is also one of Obama’s point men for reaching out to Wall Street. Corzine co-hosted an Obama fundraiser at his house in April where tickets sold for $35,800 a piece. He was also present at a White House meeting between Obama and two dozen Wall Street execs and longtime donors.
