The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is paying six figures to a group that worked for the "Obama for America" campaign to monitor its social media platforms so it can be more effective on Facebook and Twitter.
The agency awarded $182,814 to IB5k, a company billing itself as "the People Who Brought You Obama '08," to provide "comprehensive coverage" of the FDA's social media websites.

Our tax dollars used to promote Obama...
Will they lie like Obama’s “followers” that vote
but do not exist?
Most if not all of the TARP money went to political cronies of both parties, let’s not forget Bush doubled the size of government and his drug benefit for seniors was the largest transfer of wealth in the history of the planet.
Obama and Bush, both socialist scumbags.
This is how it works, folks.
Politicians in general, and Democrat especially launder tax money through these companies and corporations and back into their pockets or election funds.
I wonder how much of the Federal money paid or “loaned” to those bankrupt “Green Energy” companies ended up in the pockets of Democrats or in their war-chests?
The one hand washes the other.
It’s all about corruption and money.
“his drug benefit for seniors was the largest transfer of wealth in the history of the planet”
I didn’t agree with the prescription drug program, at all.
But you had to admire Bush’s political knowledge, and the ability to defuse the Democrats yearly “Big Hammer” and make it his own, while making it MUCH smaller than the Democrats intended. And god, how the Dems and the media hated him for that.
Have you forgotten that Ted Kennedy’s “Free Prescriptions!!!” was the Dems mantra for the 2004 elections, and was supposed to propel John Kerry to the Presidency?
That the Dems spent MILLIONS promoting it, that TV shows ran tear-jerker episodes about how seniors were dying because they couldn’t afford drugs, Hollywood types on Oprah saying what a catastrophe it was, yada, yada?
And how that anyone who dared stand against this, or John Kerry, was a hater that wanted Seniors to die, while the media gleefully clapped like a seal in praise?
I was just looking at this company to see what they do. Congressional Republicans use this company’s software as well. Congress can avoid reading a lot of mail by running correspondence through this software which looks for keywords and determines how constituents feel on various issues. It is creepy.
