Yeah, obama is sold. This ruling is evil, however. We were already a corporatocracy, and we need to be moving away from it, but instead we are allowing it to be entrenched. Corporate money involved in elections is the destruction of democracy. ANY money involved in elections is the destruction of democracy. Until all elections are given free and equal airtime, with real debates where reporters ask serious and pertinent questions, all will we have is whichever candidate gets the most contributions will be the president, ergo, whichever president promises the corporations the most support gets to be president.
Hate to bring it up, but hence ron paul. Not allowed any airtime during elections, only invited to 3 debates which he completely dominated. Massive funding for a candidate that most people had never even heard of at the time. All due to corporations deciding upon our 3 main runners.

What educational system did you grow up in that calls the United States of America a "Democracy"? We are the world's oldest Constitutional Republic.
Who care if this decision "deals a blow to Democracy".. we are not, nor have we as a nation ever been one.

Kind of brings that whole Constitutional Scholar thing into question doesn't it?

* Obama worries about 'foreign entities' getting involved
does he now?
Secret, Foreign Money Floods Into Obama Campaign
More than half of the whopping $426.9 million Barack Obama has raised has come from small donors whose names the Obama campaign won't disclose.
And questions have arisen about millions more in foreign donations the Obama campaign has received that apparently have not been vetted as legitimate.

And what can he do about it? The highest court in the land just sold us down the river! The MSM will not bash this one because they love the move guaranteed. Which means that that we are stuck with it.
Welcome to the United States of Fox News folks. I don’t know though the United States of Wal-Mart might make for some really cheap Chinese crap in unheard of numbers. Lets just hope we don’t see the United States of Lockheed Martin. Hell before long monopoly’s will be completely legal. If this move does not say America has been sold I don’t know what does!

The liberal justices were against it, liberals are screaming foul, and now Barack (CSPAN) Obama is against it.
This tells me the Supreme Court made the right decision!
Liberals hate freedom of speech, and this just proves it.
It really speaks of hypocrisy and deceit by our current Potus, to even speak of this ruling, seeing his campaign contributions included foreign, banks, mega corps, unions and other such sundery finances.
It behooves me to speak, of the outright fraud and corruption that pervades our government to its very core.
