Lamentations and Lawsuits
An Obama campaign lawyer has filed a lawsuit with the FEC against Crossroads GPS. While the Campaigner-in-Chief is whining about the Super Pacs and the Supremes decision in Citizen’s United, not one word has been said about the Billions spent by unions or the non-disclosing 501 (c) (4)s.
“If Obama really cared about campaign law, he would have sent letters to Priorities USA and the League of Conservation Voters and other non-disclosing liberal 501(c)(4)s,” Collegio said in a statement. “He only cares about silencing conservative groups that are holding him accountable for his failed record.”…….[snip
A complaint from either side may be too late for this year. The complaint filed by the Obama campaign asks for a ruling before Election Day so that “voters are operating with full information about the political interests behind what they have seen on the airwaves.” Given the FEC’s standard operating pace, that likely won’t happen, Hasen says.
How embarrassing is that? Considering how many “unnamed donors” and anonymous donors BO had in 2008 that needed investigation, the 1 billion he raised for his campaign in 2008, it seems this is a little whiny and immature of his campaign. Does he think his thug politics that played out in 2008 will actually work again? Way too many people paying attention now, especially those Hillary Democrats his thug bunch rolled over in 2008. James Carville has come out saying he’s a Hillary supporter not an Obama supporter. BO is also losing the more moderate Democrats because they know how toxic he has become. Even his most loyal supporters in the black community are questioning BO’s lack of interest in speaking with them. The NNPA has a major beef with BO over his lack of interviews with any of their publications.
But, it isn’t only President Obama that is avoiding the Black Press. The Crusader also reports that other African-American media outlets have experienced difficulties when it comes to getting interviews with the first lady. “Heart & Soul magazine, a health and fitness magazine for women of color, offered to place Michelle Obama on the cover but they, too, were denied an interview…”
Smiley of PBS is also wondering why Preezy has no time to speak to the black Ministers who disagree with his stance on gay marriage. They have politely requested a meeting with BO but, no answer. Not even to politely tell them he has no time due to his campaign schedule. But, MO wants them to have “BO’s back” when it comes time to vote for “their” man in the White House. The black minister’s coalition, not to be deterred from having their say, have told their congregations not to support BO and to sit on the sidelines. BO couldn’t even bring himself to attend the NAACP conference. Does it not seem BO takes it for granted every black voter is easy pickings?
“We have requested a meeting with President Obama and until he meets with us, we are going to ask black Christians to withhold their support until he personally hears our concerns,” the group’s spokesperson, the Rev. Bill Owens, told The Christian Post on Tuesday after Monday’s press conference in Nashville.
“More than anything, this is an issue of biblical principles and President Obama is carrying our nation down a dangerous road. Many African Americans were once proud of our president but now many are ashamed of his actions.”
Now that the black community has a rising unemployment rate of 14.7%, how many of you actually think they are as enthusiastic to vote for the ‘not-first-black-president’ (Morgan Freeman’s words, not mine).
