Just more evidence that this Obama Administration is one of the MOST corrupt administrations in the history of America.....It's all just Chicago Politics and every pledge Obama made to change the government and how it works were just lies...but Obama has no problem lying to the American People as we all know!..He's got to go in 2012!
Just a coincidence
Carney defends jobs for donors

White House press secretary Jay Carney on Wednesday denied that the amount of money donors raised for Barack Obama in 2008 had any role in their appointments to key administration positions.
“Being a supporter does not qualify you for a job,” Carney told reporters. “But it does not disqualify you.”
“I’m saying that the president appoints people based on their qualifications,” Carney said.
An iWatch News investigation, published in POLITICO, found that 80 percent of “bundlers” who raised more than $500,000 for Obama’s campaign were given key administration posts. Carney said the administration’s ethical standards are “unmatched” and that its level of transparency is “unprecedented.”
He implied that there was nothing wrong with the number of political appointments given to Obama’s high-dollar donors.
“It would be wrong if they were not qualified,” Carney said.
Carney said that the bundlers who were given jobs were “enormously qualified” but simply “also happened to be donors.” And, he noted, some of them “happen to be highly successful.”
