Remember back … pre-2008 … when Obama said he’d opt for public financing if his opponent did, but then when McCain did (and limited himself to the amount allowed by law), Obama suddenly decided that public financing was somehow a corrupt way of doing things and he’d go with the “clean” money that was over-flowing his campaign war chest.
Here is his latest, updated version on how to take the moral high road in campaign financing: have your mega-millionaire donors call some of their mega-millionaire donations “matching funds” for the widow’s pence donations of all the good-hearted and earnest American Voters who are no doubt unemployed and taking their precious little pence out of their welfare checks.
I’m just shivering all over with admiration for all the sensitivity and honesty and moral integrity Barack is putting into raising the billion dollars he plans to blow on his campaign. Not.
In other news …
A Grassroots Action Alert email sent me an update on the ObamaCare court case. Back when the Dems were pushing O-Care through Congress, they SWORE the individual mandate “penalties” were not new taxes.
Then they turned around and told the court that, oh wait, they ARE taxes, which makes them none of the court’s business because Congress has a constitutional right to levy taxes.
The latest update is … the DOJ has conceded that the mandates are PENALTIES after all and therefore the Fourth Circuit can and should rule on this case.
The court may rule before the end of the month, but whatever the ruling, the case is expected to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Also, dozens of Hollywood execs have admitted to their liberal bias on tape. (Pope also admits he’s Catholic.)
Some of TV’s top executives from the past four decades may have gotten more than they bargained for when they agreed to be interviewed for a politically charged book that was released Tuesday, because video of their controversial remarks will soon be hitting the Internet.
The book makes the case that TV industry executives, writers and producers use their clout to advance a liberal political agenda. The author bases his thesis on, among other things, 39 taped interviews that he’ll roll out piecemeal during the next three weeks.
