one of Obama's campaign websites posted an item entitled "Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney's donors." Web Link it describes the donors as 'a group of wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records. Quite a few have been on the wrong side of the law." but the descriptions accompanying the names do not describe any violations of laws. The WSJ has checked in to these people, and declares, "These are wealthy individuals, to be sure, but private citizens nonetheless. Not one is a criminal.
This is defamatory, I will not be surprised when these donors file a libel suit against the Obama campaign.
I have yet to find any info about any Romney donors who have actually been on the wrong side of the law, nevermind the fact that the men singled out here haven't done anything illegal.
Theodore Olson, the former U.S. solicitor general says, "We don't tolerate presidents or people of high power to do these things. When you have the power of the presidencyâ€"the power of the IRS, the INS, the Justice Department, the DEA, the SECâ€"what you have effectively done is put these guys names up on 'Wanted' posters in government offices."
This is David Axelrod and Chicago politics, and it's not going to get any better, because Obama can't campaign on his record. Bill Clinton, the last Democrat President, popularized the phrase 'politics of personal destruction'. This President is redefining it. Brace yourself.
