Incest, Washington-Style

While Ron Paul is splitting hairs over the definition of "socialism," Goldman-Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein has been visiting the White House during a nine month fraud investigation.

And of course, Obama is keeping the campaign money he received from Goldman-Sachs. Why bother if it's not technically illegal?

“Anybody who gave me money during the course of my campaign knew that I was on record, again in 2007 and 2008, pushing very strongly that we needed to reform how Wall Street did business,” he said.

That doesn't put my mind at ease, Mister President. Of course you made it clear that you wanted to take over Wall Street, but that's when you cross the line from campaign donation to protection money.

Good luck in 2012.
