Obama gladly accepts $400,000 Fee for a Speech from Wall Street firm, even though he hates Wall Street

Democrats, truth be told, are the party of Wall Street and have been for years.  Although Obama has railed against Wall Street for the duration of his presidency, it was all theater to hoodwink Democrat voters.  And Democrats get away with all the time.   

NY Times reports former President Barack Obama has agreed to accept $400,000 to speak at a health care conference this year sponsored by Cantor Fitzgerald, a Wall Street investment bank.

The lucrative engagement, reported earlier by Fox, was confirmed by a person familiar with the speaking agreement. A spokesman for Mr. Obama declined to comment on the speech.

Out of office for about three months, Mr. Obama has begun the process of cashing in. In February, he and his wife, Michelle, each signed book deals worth tens of millions of dollars. And Mr. Obama’s spokesman confirmed last week that he is beginning the paid-speech circuit.
