and Rogers and Rowe…
Exelon’s nuclear plant in Byron, Ill. Company officials say its relationship with the Obama administration reflects a shared vision of moving the nation toward a cleaner energy future.
WASHINGTON — Early in the Obama administration, a lobbyist for the Illinois-based energy producer Exelon Corporation proudly called it “the president’s utility.” And it was not just because it delivers power to Barack Obama’s Hyde Park neighborhood in Chicago.
Obama’s BIGGEST Bundler for Obama to the tune of over a Million bucks.
Exelon’s top executives were early and frequent supporters of Mr. Obama as he rose from the Illinois State Senate to the White House. John W. Rogers Jr.,(He was active in the 2008 Barack Obama presidential campaign and was a leader of the 2009 Inauguration committee) a friend of the president’s and one of his top fund-raisers, is an Exelon board member. David Axelrod, Mr. Obama’s longtime political strategist, once worked as an Exelon consultant, and Rahm Emanuel, the Chicago mayor and Mr. Obama’s former chief of staff, helped create the company through a corporate merger in 2000 while working as an investment banker.

Rowe received compensation valued at just under $11 million in 2006, as the utility company saw its earnings grow 73 percent, according to a regulatory filing Friday, March 30, 2007.

He bragged about White House Access for EIGHT visits.
The ties go back at least to Mr. Obama’s tenure in the Illinois State Senate, when he befriended an Exelon lobbyist named Frank M. Clark. Exelon’s employees, including Mr. Clark, were among the biggest financial supporters of Mr. Obama’s United States Senate campaign, with donations also from Mr. Rowe, then the company’s chief executive, and others in the executive suite, campaign finance records show.

‘Promises Made, Promises Broken’…
Liberals made Barack Obama’s election as President possible in 2008, but since then, Obama has worked against liberal values, continuing the worst policies of George W. Bush’s agenda. If we are to be honest and true to our political ideals, liberals will not support Republicans, but we also will oppose Barack Obama’s top-down, lobbyist-paid re-election campaign in 2012.
LOL: Jay Carney, the Propagandist – Sean Hannity…
Exelon got $646 million from Treasury in form of ‘loan’. (Sweetheart Deal) Also a 200 million from stimulus ‘grant’ they do NOT have to pay back. So similiar to Solyndra. All these Obama ‘Endless Fails’ with the bogus green energy programs.
