President Barack Obama promised “change we could believe in”. The only change I have witnessed over the past few years is the continued jingle in the campaign coffers, especially since the United Citizens Decision. Is President Obama really truthful about change when he dines at campaign dinners with Wall Streeters asking for their contributions?
