Obama was back on the Stump down in Texas and he gave us a little more insight into who the real Obama is. This is the most unpresidential president of my lifetime (and yes, that includes Jimmy Carter). He openly attacked a group of Americans questioning their legitimacy.
Right now all around this country there are groups with harmless-sounding names like Americans for Prosperity, who are running millions of dollars of ads against Democratic candidates all across the country. And they don’t have to say who exactly the Americans for Prosperity are. You don’t know if it’s a foreign-controlled corporation. You don’t know if it’s a big oil company, or a big bank. You don’t know if it’s a insurance company that wants to see some of the provisions in health reform repealed because it’s good for their bottom line, even if it’s not good for the American people.
Well Mr. President, you can tell a lot about who they are by what they profess to believe in and strive for. Here is the mission of Americans for Prosperity;
Americans for Prosperity™ (AFP) and Americans for Prosperity Foundation (AFP Foundation) are committed to educating citizens about economic policy and mobilizing those citizens as advocates in the public policy process. AFP is an organization of grassroots leaders who engage citizens in the name of limited government and free markets on the local, state and federal levels. The grassroots activists of AFP advocate for public policies that champion the principles of entrepreneurship and fiscal and regulatory restraint.
It sounds to me an awful lot like those pesky tea-partiers. This sounds very familiar. We all remember when the democrats were accusing the grassroots tea party members of being astroturfers backed by the insurance companies.
So it sounds like the democrats and the Obama administration are making a habit of casting false accusations in an attempt to discredit legitimate dissent.
The real question, if Obama really wants to go there, is where did the donations to his 2008 presidential campaign come from? It was widely reported that more than half of the funds Barack Obama had raised had come from small donors whose names the Obama campaign wouldn’t disclose and by turning off the online fraud check on credit card donations foreign donations were not blocked.
It is much more likely that foreign money would flow to elect a citizen of the world named Barack Hussein Obama who denounces American exceptionalism and bows to foreign leaders than to a group of Americans fighting for limited government and free markets.
