The Obama/Google Alliance

We already knew that Google loves Obama and has helped him financially and have used their search functions to help improve Barry's image.

When Google flexes its muscle, it is as powerful as the mainstream media. It might be a stacked deck but we have to play our hand anyway, folks.

The Google Transparency Project, the work of Campaign for Accountability, poured over reams of data to find 258 instances of “revolving door activity” between Google or its associated companies and the federal government, national political campaigns and Congress since 2009.

Much of that revolving door activity took place at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, where 22 former White House officials went to work for Google and 31 executives from Google and related firms went to work at the White House or were appointed to federal advisory boards by Obama. Those boards include the President’s Council on Science and Technology and the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.
