Cancer victims or Wall Street bankers?

Obama’s campaign fundraisers at Goldman Sachs, AIG, and Citi seriously harmed the world economy through their greed, recklessness, and arrogance.

Cancer, neuropathy, and victims of other debilitating diseases live in constant pain.

Obama takes serious political risks to help one of these classes. Care to guess which?

More than 100,000 questions were submitted, with the idea Obama would answer those that were most popular. But after 3.6 million votes were cast, one of the top questions turned out to be a query on whether legalizing marijuana might stimulate the economy by allowing the government to regulate and tax the drug.

“I don’t know what this says about the online audience,” Obama said in the session in the East Room, drawing a laugh from his live audience, which included teachers, nurses and small-business people. “The answer is no, I don’t think that is a good strategy to grow the economy

Editorials in favor of the legalization of marijuana recently appeared in Time and The Economist. However, Obama is too busy mocking cancer victims and bailing out his Wall Street friends to do much about it.

Update: On Twitter, John Robb notes that Obama is using “special entities” to avoid complying with Congress’s laws regarding bailouts. No such innovation when it comes to providing pain relief to those with terminal diseases.
