Obama's continued attacks on special interests

Here is what Obama said in Ohio on Sunday: "Right now the same special interests that would profit from the other sides' agenda, they are fighting back. The empire is striking back. To win this election, they are plowing ten's of millions of dollars into front groups. They are running misleading negative ads all across the country. They don't have the courage to stand up and disclose their identity. They could be insurance companies, banks, we don't know. This isn't just a threat to Democrats, this is a threat to Democracy." Has any Republican president continually attacked the motives of the other side the way Obama does? Obama has already gotten swatted by liberal Democrats over the campaign donation claims that he has already made (see here).

These special interest claims are really too much. Unions? The pharmaceutical industry for Harry Reid? Goldman Sachs? This is nuts. When the Democrats don't want to talk about the issues they filibuster by demonizing those they oppose.

Axelrod also won't give up on this issue. On CNN on Sunday he said this: "They say, trust us, trust us, everything is cool, everything is kosher, don't worry about it, but we're not going to disclose. Let me tell you something, [if] people don't disclose, there's a reason." He has gotten off the foreign donations track. Note though in his discussions with the CNN anchor that he ignores the fact that it was Democrat third party groups that had the financial advantage in the last two cycles.

Has Axelrod forgotten Obama's stonewalling all of his birth, scholastic, and work records???

For three years now we have been saying that Obama has something to hide!
