4. Tweety was asking the wrong question.

The guy answered at least 5 times that the organization Americans for Prosperity pays him. The question Tweety meant to ask, I think, is .... who owns or funds Americans for Prosperity.

7. No, it was the right question. He cut to the chase and the stooge knew he'd been exposed:

Last edited Wed Dec 12, 2012, 12:25 AM - Edit history (1)

Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is a group fronting special interests started by oil billionaire David Koch and Richard Fink (a member of the board of directors of Koch Industries).

AFP has been accused of funding astroturf operations but also has been fueling the "Tea Party" efforts. AFP's messages are in sync with those of other groups funded by the Koch Family Foundations and the Koch's other special interest groups that work against progressive or Democratic initiatives and protections for workers and the environment.

Accordingly, AFP opposes labor unions, health care reform, stimulus spending, and cap-and-trade legislation, which is aimed at making industries pay for the air pollution that they create. AFP was also involved in the attacks on Obama’s "green jobs" czar, Van Jones, and has crusaded against international climate talks.

According to an article in the August 30, 2010 issue of The New Yorker, the Kochs are known for "creating slippery organizations with generic-sounding names," that "make it difficult to ascertain the extent of their influence in Washington."

AFP's budget surged from $7 million in 2007 to $40 million in 2010, an election year. . As of August 13th, Americans for Prosperity spent an estimated $45 million on ads to influence the 2012 presidential election, their total budget for 2012 will top $100 million.

For a more detailed summary of AFP's 2012 election activities, see: Americans for Prosperity in the 2012 Election.

10. What you posted has nothing to do with Tweety's question: Who pays you? Americans for Prosp

pays the guy. Period.

Tweety was REALLY asking what your article is referencing: Who owns or funds Americans for Prosperity?

The question Tweety asked was answered. The organization pays him, he answered. Asked and answered.

6. Unfortunately, Tweety sounded like a crazy person...

Maybe he wanted the man to state who FUNDS Americans for Prosperity. But he should have made that clear. Frankly, the man was answering accurately if indeed his paychecks come from AFP.
