They have no sense of irony...but to anyone with a sense of humor, it is worth a chuckle.
WaPost: "In close consultation with President Obama, two of his top political strategists are designing an ambitious new organization funded by donations from wealthy individuals and corporations aimed at making political and legislative gains at the federal and state levels."
[Yes, the poor grassroots Obama reelection team had to get by with a mere billion or so to spend, and of course millions of unionized public employees as a 'volunteer' army]
"The fledgling Organizing for Action says it will be nonpartisan and steer clear of election activity. [all these organizations have to lie to comply with the idiotic 'campaign finance reform' laws]But the line between issue disputes and electoral politics can be a fuzzy one. The first of an expected wave of ads on gun control, for example, has targeted only Republicans. And OFA board member Jim Messina, who managed Obama’s reelection campaign, has been talking with Democratic Party leaders, including those responsible for success in the 2014 midterm elections."
"In huddles with Hollywood studio executives, California energy investors and Chicago business titans, they have suggested $500,000 as a target level for OFA bundlers and that top donors get invitations to quarterly OFA board meetings attended by the president."
[The 'energy investors' are Al Gore and his compatriots, getting fat government handouts to produce electric cars that are a laughingstock, and wind and solar power that fail miserably. Oh, at least they can take these tax dollars and recycle them as campaign contributions, that is one way to "recycle" and save the planet]..
"The next step in converting Obama’s election apparatus to grass-roots lobbying is a “founders summit” March 13 that includes a $50,000-per-person meeting at the Jefferson hotel in Washington led by Messina and Carson. Those planning to attend said they hope the president will be part of the day’s agenda, though the White House and OFA declined to comment on that possibility."
"Advocates for campaign finance reform see the organization’s goal of raising tens of millions of dollars as a new channel to allow wealthy individuals and corporations to seek favors from the administration. And they criticize Obama for abandoning reform rhetoric in favor of a group that can raise unlimited sums with limited transparency, the very circumstances he complained about publicly in 2010 when the Supreme Court granted corporations and unions the opportunity to contribute to groups seeking to influence elections."
[Liberal 'Advocates' are really advocating for muzzling speech of conservatives... after 2008, who could actually believe Obama is a "reformer" who wants to fight corruption? ]
Good for a laugh.
