More Bad News on Obama

(Per David Sirota)

Take a glance around the news-o-sphere today and you’ll see the outlines of Hostile Takeover 2008: Democrats Gone Wild. Buried at the very bottom of a New York Times story marveling at Barack Obama’s ability to shakedown wealthy Chicago scions for big cash, we find out that one of the Illinois senator’s biggest donors is the family that owns one of the largest defense contractors in the world, General Dynamics. What a shock, then, that Obama hasn’t discussed our bloated military budget even though polls show the public wants that budget reeled in. What a surprise to see Obama triangulating against potential plans to reduce funding for the Iraq War.
