44th-President-of-the-United-States

In this new series, we will attempt to explore the main characters evolving around the 2010 Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court decision. Each “card” will represent a character who symbolize one aspect of the Citizen United case.

These characters in fact are either directly linked to the case or are acting against or in favor of it. The full consequences of that decision still have to be determined as the 2012 Presidential campaign is still very much in its beginning. Yet, we can already evaluate the tremendous impact that Super PACs have on campaigns and political communication.

BARACK OBAMA | 44th President of the United States 

As a politician, Barack Obama faces the same constraints when it comes to the elections. The 44th President of the U.S needs to raise money if he hopes to win the general election in November. Problem, a week after the Citizens United decision, during the State of the Union Presidential address, Barack Obama clearly stated that he was against the Supreme Court justices ruling:

“Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests – including foreign companies – to spend without limit in our elections,” Obama said tonight. “Well, I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, and worse, by foreign entities. They should be decided by the American people, and that’s why I’m urging Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to right this wrong.” (Read mor on L.A Times)

As a result, in May 2012, 

The pro-Barack Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action is still struggling to keep up with GOP super PACs preparing to unleash millions of dollars in independent advertisements.

Priorities USA Action raised $1.6 million in April, according to federal records released late Sunday. It’s the smallest haul the group has pulled in since the meager $59,000 the group raised in January. (Read More on Politico)

Not surprisingly, wealthy liberal donors are reluctant to give to a Super PAC the President himself didn’t backed in the first place. 
His strategy is to adapt the successful 2008 grassroot campaign to the needs of the 2012 election, focusing on getting people involved more than high-dollar fundraiser. 

At the end of the day, these efforts to raise money will probably make Barack Obama the first Billion dollar President (in terms of campaign money).

Barack Obama // 11/04/08

This is the speech that President Barack Obama made in 2008 after he was elected the 44th president of the United States. This is important to our country’s history because Obama is the first ever African American president.

Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama (born January 17, 1964) is an American lawyer and writer. She is the wife of the 44th and current President of the United States, Barack Obama, and the first African-American First Lady of the United States. Raised on the South Side of Chicago, she is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Law School, and spent the early part of her legal career working at the law firm Sidley Austin, where she met Barack. Subsequently, she worked as part of the staff of Chicago mayor Richard M. Daley, and for the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Throughout 2007 and 2008, Obama helped campaign for her husband’s presidential bid. She delivered a keynote address at the 2008 Democratic National Convention and also spoke at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. She and her husband have two daughters together. As the wife of a senator, and later the first lady, she has become a fashion icon and role model for women, and an advocate for poverty awareness, nutrition, physical activity, and healthy eating.[1][2]

The future’s so bright you gotta wear Rand Paul shades

Summer is coming up fast, and what better way to shield your eyes from the bright sun and the UV rays than to don a pair of Rand Paul’s very own Ray-Ban Wayfarers!

The Rand Paul store, run by his presidential campaign, has attracted attention for offering merchandise comprised of not only the usual campaign t-shirts, but a slew of other “hip” items not typically offered by a campaign.

Well now, their newest addition to the store will allow you to shade your eyes from the sun in style!

The Kennedy-style shades have become a regular Rand staple.

However, he isn’t the only politician who has gotten notice for his shades or had his image used to sell them.

If you are feeling more like the 44th President of the United States, you can get your hands on some of Barack’s Ray-Bans.

In light of all of the Presidential eyewear, the real question is: Who wore them better?

Perhaps it’s my Millennial bias slipping through, but I’m going with Paul and his Wayfarers.
