Oh boo hoo hoo.




Strassel: The President Has a List Barack Obama attempts to intimidate contributors to Mitt Romney's campaign.

Save Mr. Obama, who acknowledges no rules. This past week, one of his campaign websites posted an item entitled "Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney's donors." In the post, the Obama campaign named and shamed eight private citizens who had donated to his opponent. Describing the givers as all having "less-than-reputable records," the post went on to make the extraordinary accusations that "quite a few" have also been "on the wrong side of the law" and profiting at "the expense of so many Americans."

These are people like Paul Schorr and Sam and Jeffrey Fox, investors who the site outed for the crime of having "outsourced" jobs. T. Martin Fiorentino is scored for his work for a firm that forecloses on homes. Louis Bacon (a hedge-fund manager), Kent Burton (a "lobbyist") and Thomas O'Malley (an energy CEO) stand accused of profiting from oil. Frank VanderSloot, the CEO of a home-products firm, is slimed as a "bitter foe of the gay rights movement."

1. They are really fucking stupid, aren't they?

Or they think their readers are, which amounts to the same thing.

4. No kidding. Nothing like bringing clarity to the issue.

 

Had he/she just STFU, it wouldn't have become an issue. Now a lot more people are going to know that fellow scumbags are supporting everyone's favorite vulture capitalist.

2. The American people have the right to know who the "less-than-reputable" people are that

3. Winston Churchill on ending a sentence w/ a preposition

When Churchill did so in a published work he was publicly criticized by a grammar professor. Churchill's response was iconic

This is the type of arrant pedantry up with which I will not put.

Winston Spencer Churchill


Enjoy!

11. Article is a load of tripe. Olson crying foul? And no Koch crime but giving to Romney?

Really now?

It must suck to be Strassel and have to be a lying shill for a bunch of fascist sociopaths determined to sell off every inch of America and every American to the lowest bidders.

Anyone who's checked into what these guys are up to knows that is a crime, and he's defending them.
