Obama at ASEAN: Money Overwhelms Ideas

Joke on the Left

President Hussein Bahamas

At a meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations United States President Barack Hussein Obama told a group of young Asian leaders to avoid flaws in the political system which elected him president twice (archived). Chief among the problems Obama sees in the United States political system is that "money overwhelms ideas" even though his campaigns in pursuit of elected office were never starved for funding.

As a United States president elected to his final term under the current constitutionally imposed term limits, Obama's re-election campaign "Obama for America" still operates as a "community organizing project" under the name "Organize for Action" actively engaged in shaping political conversation in the United States. This organization in its present incarnation is chartered as a 501(c)(4) non-profit allowed to lobby for legislation but disallowed from endorsing any particular candidate for office as a part of its transition after the 2012 election. In spite of this "Organize for Action" still runs barackobama.com and the handle @barackobama on Twitter. "Organize for Action" has further been linked to recent outbreaks of racial unrest in the United States.

Barack Hussein Obama could not be reached for comment on how he feels about his own participation and victory in this electoral system. The one which allowed him to triumph over so many ideas through his raw power of accessing lots of money.
