How is Obama any different than Madoff?

  1. I don't have time to get into detail, but seriously, what is the difference between these two? Madoff scammed investors by selling a baseless and unrealistic dream and investors did no homework because the dream was too good to let go, even though the facts didn't support anything that was going on. Replace the prior sentence with Obama and tell me it doesn't fit right in.

    Madoff is under house arrest and Obama is in the White House.

    That's about it.
  3. Ya but both are living in some pretty nice places.

    I'm pretty sure that there would be a lot of cheers if the FTC came down onto capital hill and rounded everyone there up on charges of false advertising. If they were anything but politicians it would have happened a long time ago as the violate the truth in advertising laws just about every time they open their friggin mouths.
