All this yammering about Obama's so called elitist ties because he selected the former CEO of Fannie Mae to help him find a vice president can finally be laid to rest
You're really drunk on the Kool aid, aren't you?
Johnson hasn't worked for Fannie Mae since 2000 or 2001. Rather than go along with the media propaganda that repeatedly refers to Johnson as the former head of Fannie Mae, let's start by describing him accurately.
Johnson is the CURRENT Vice-Chairman of Perseus LLC, a $3 billion hedge fund partnered with George Soros. Johnson is also a current director on the board of Goldman Sachs.
Perseus LLC Chairman Frank Pearl, a member of America for Bilderberg, was financially supporting Obama back in 2003. Soros funded MoveOn.org, which went so far as to withdraw their 527 so they could officially endorse Obama.
The fact that Johnson "officially" stepped down as the person in charge of vetting Obama's VP candidate does nothing to lessen the significance that Obama entrusted this responsibility to Johnson the first place.
Are you really that naive to think that now suddenly the men who backed Obama and put him in the position he's at are no longer calling the shots?
Or do you think that somehow a freshman Senator from Illinois miraculously built an organization that was able to take out Hillary Clinton and generate $40 million a month on his own? How did a Senator with just 2 years in Washington manage to put together this type of organization and recruit the likes of Zbignew Brazinski, James Johnson, George Soros, Frank Pearl, Ted Kennedy, Jimmy Carter, and Lee Hamilton almost overnight?
Seriously, there's nothing THAT special about anything Obama stands for (which is really nothing) that would enthrall all of these heavy hitters to back him, is there? Do you really think these people bought into Obama's "hope" and "change" mantra, or do you think maybe there's something in it for them?
