Smell the Desperation in the White House's October Surprise

The White House is trying a desperate ploy to stop the upcoming Republican tsunami that's headed towards Washington by accusing Republicans of using foreign money to help fund this election cycle. President Obama made not one, but two references to the Chamber of Commerce during speeches last Thursday.

In two campaign stops Thursday, Mr. Obama invoked what he portrayed as a specific new example, citing a blog posting from a liberal advocacy group as he teed off on a longtime adversary, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, over its political spending.

What the President fails to mention is that the blog posting he cites is from a George Soros-funded radical far-left advocacy group, Center for American Progress.

What the President also fails to mention is that these accusations are essentially baseless. The Magnificent Bastard, Karl Rove, has retaliated by noting that the Obama administration is employing one of the tactics of Tricky Dick Nixon in assembling an "enemies list". After nearly two years of the Obama regime, it's clear who is on this list: all of us.

Be on the lookout for this ad from the DNC coming to a cable system near you:

“Karl Rove, Ed Gillespie: They're Bush cronies,” the ad charges. “The U.S. Chamber of Commerce: They're shills for Big Business. And they're stealing our democracy. … Tell the Bush crowd and the Chamber of Commerce: Stop stealing our democracy.”

Perhaps we should tell them that we don't have a democracy. You'd think that they'd know we have a representative republic, but what's a little factoid like that when you're trying to hang on to your power by using Alinsky's tactics?

Here's why this attempt to stem the tide will fail - we're not stupid.

There's a little item the President and those who helped him bamboozle fifty-two percent of the voting public in November of 2008 don't want you to know: their online fundraising was very busy accepting illegal foreign donations in clear violation of election laws. The only reason why this hasn't been investigated is that Democrats hold the majority in Congress and are therefore able to decide which investigations are pursued and which ones aren't.

From the New York Post:

The Federal Election Commission says the Obama campaign has reported well over $200 million as coming from contributions of $200 or less. Only a small portion of that sum is attributable to donors the Obama campaign has disclosed.

No presidential campaign has ever before received such a gargantuan sum of money from unidentified contributors.

The campaign's records reveal big contributors with names like "Doodad Pro" (employer: "Loving," profession: "You") and "Good Will" (same employer and profession). Both donated via credit card. Other reports have suggested that some donations come from overseas - raising the question of whether Obama is accepting donations from foreigners, another violation of federal law.
 How did they do this? I thought you'd never ask...

All of which prompted an enterprising citizen to test the controls put in place to enforce compliance with federal campaign law by the Obama and McCain campaigns. Last Thursday, he decided to conduct an experiment.
He went to the Obama campaign Web site and made a donation under the name "John Galt" (the hero of Ayn Rand's novel "Atlas Shrugged"). He provided the equally fictitious address "1957 Ayn Rand Lane, Galts Gulch, CO 99999."
He checked the box next to $15 and entered his actual credit-card number and expiration date. He was then taken to the next page and notified that his donation had been processed.
He then tried the same experiment on the McCain site, which rejected the transaction. He returned to the Obama site and made three more donations using the names Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and Bill Ayers, all with different addresses but the same credit card. The transactions all went through. By Saturday, he'd reported that the transactions had all posted to his credit-card account.

Others repeated "John Galt's" experiment last week, giving to Obama under such fictitious names as Della Ware, Joe Plumber, Idiot Savant, Ima BadDonation (with a Canadian bank card) and Fake Donor.

Here's another source, The Washington Post, reporting on the same malfeasance,

In recent weeks, questionable contributions have created headaches for Obama's accounting team as it has tried to explain why campaign finance filings have included itemized donations from individuals using fake names, such as Es Esh or Doodad Pro. Those revelations prompted conservative bloggers to further test Obama's finance vetting by giving money using the kind of prepaid cards that can be bought at a drugstore and cannot be traced to a donor.
Even the Wall Street Journal has taken notice and criticized the White House for this pathetic attempt at an October surprise.

Obama and his corrupt enablers have far more 'splainin' to do to the American people as to why it's alright for them to accept foreign funds and then turn around and accuse Republicans of doing the same thing.

Remember this on November 2. Get out and vote. Send a clear message that we don't like the hard turn to the corrupt left that this administration has taken the country against our will.
