Come Clean On Those Donors

David Axelrod was on Face the Nation Sunday and he was bashing Republicans, particularly Karl Rove, because of money that goes to ads for Republican candidates. The problem, according to Axelrod, is that the donors names have not been disclosed. The insinuation is that the donors are illegal and a lot of the money is coming from overseas entities. Rove has denied this, his group is following the law, and even The New York Times stated that nothing wrong took place.

This has not stopped the Democrats, including Obama and Biden, from parroting the same lies. The smear, which faithful liberal Alan Colmes is also harping on, is a non starter for Obama and the Democrats.

Nothing wrong is taking place. While I would like to see transparency I also understand that the law is the law and these people are not obligated to disclose the information.

Funny thing is that Obama had no problem with undisclosed donors when it was the donors giving to him during his run for the presidency. Obama still has not come clean on a lot of his donors. He received a lot of money from foreigners and others overseas, in violation of the law. His credit card process had no security and there was rampant abuse when it came to him getting money.

The Obama team’s disclosures came in response to questions from The Washington Post about the case of Mary T. Biskup, a retired insurance manager from Manchester, Mo., who turned up on Obama’s FEC reports as having donated $174,800 to the campaign. Contributors are limited to giving $2,300 for the general election.

Biskup, who had scores of Obama contributions attributed to her, said in an interview that she never donated to the candidate. “That’s an error,” she said. Moreover, she added, her credit card was never billed for the donations, meaning someone appropriated her name and made the contributions with another card. Washington Post

There is no doubt that Obama took illegal donations and that he did not disclose the names of people who sent him money. For him to now cry about the Republicans not disclosing their donors, donors who are legal, smacks of desperation. And this is because he is desperate. The Republicans will gain somewhere between 55 and 70 seats in the House and will either tie the Senate or take a one Senator lead. He is desperate because he is going to take, as George Bush once said, a thumping.

These accusations are baseless and Axelrod looked like a fool trying to push them on Face the Nation. When one considers the response of Bob Schieffer, a left wing supporter, it is easy to see the Democrats are in real trouble.

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

  1. Mr. Ogre says:

    I’d love to see honest politicians and groups immediately post all donations and transactions on the web.

    But that would take an honest politician.

  2. Be careful what you wish for, BD, Ogre; you might get it.

    If politically connected organizations weren’t to shield the privacy of their donors, the Obamunists could go after them with campaigns of intimidation and slander. Indeed, the whole point of the Obama / Axelrod thrust is to get those donors’ identities, so that they can do a little Chicago-style arm-twisting, with IRS audits and OSHA compliance reviews and whatnot. Considering what the Obamunists have already dome to their open adversaries, that’s a development to be feared.
