President Obama, the preeminent crusader against the evils of Wall Street, took some heat from his Progressive pals a few weeks ago when it emerged that as his first paid speech appearance he would receive $400,000 for roughly an hour of his time from, well, Wall Street, or rather Cantor Fitzgerald.

But the irony didn't end there.* In an effort to combat the public outcry, the beloved former President defended his efforts by arguing that the decision to take $400,000 from Cantor Fitzgerald couldn't possibly mean that he's a sellout because, well, he already sold out to Wall Street during his initial Presidential campaign back in 2008.**You can't sell out again if you've already sold out before...come on people, it doesn't work that way.* Here is part of his actual*statement:


Did Obama get pre bribed


Hereís how a pre-bribe works.

*

When a president leaves office, you offer the ex-president an enormous speaking fee. Letís say $400,000. The ex-president does the speech and banks the money. The ex-president has no power at that point, so the speaking fee canít be seen as a bribe because there is no quid pro quo.

*

But what about the president that is in office while this happens? Do you think the current president notices when the the prior president gets a $400,000 payday for an hour of work?
