The hypocrisy of Barack Obama knows no end. Barack Obama has accepted a $400,000 speaking fee for a Wall Street conference that will be hosted by Cantor Fitzgerald LP. This is nearly twice as much as the speaking fees Hillary Clinton charged for her speeches to Goldman Sachs after she left the State Department. Clinton faced heavy criticism for the money she took for speaking to wall street firms during her presidential run. The Clinton’s earned more than $16.3 million for 72 speeches in 2012. They average around $226,000 per speech.
If Obama keeps the current pace, he’ll make nearly double what the Clinton’s make. Obama will address a health care conference in September. Obama will be the keynote luncheon speaker for one day of the event. Although Obama has already signed the contract, the details of the event is still in the process of being planned. Obama can still reportedly pull out of the deal if there are scheduling conflicts.
Obama could also pull out of the speech if he is faced with negative publicity. Obama has received quite a lot of backlash so far, liberals have blown a fuse over this news:
It’s fun watching liberals realize what people meant when they said Hillary would be 4 more years of Obama!Source: Salon
