More liberal hypocrisy

Once again liberals are outraged by something Governor Scott Walker did.

When Governor Walker took office just about one year ago, he promised to make job creation the number one priority. After a special session and controversial reforms that saw thousands of protesters and even caused 14 Democratic Senators to flee the state to avoid a vote, Wisconsin balanced it’s budget without raising taxes and without massive layoffs.

Ever since February of 2011, Democrats and left-wing organizations have threatened Governor Walker with a recall. And after attempting, and failing, to take a majority in the state senate with recall elections last summer, the time has finally arrived where the recall of Governor Walker is underway.

So now what is the latest complaint from Democrats and left-wing organizations?

That Governor Scott Walker is raising money to campaign and defend himself. How dare he.

Now why does he have to fundraise and can’t focus on governing the state of Wisconsin? Oh yes, because the Democrats have decided to recall him after just one year in office. How dare he raise money to defend himself.

And in what is becoming all too typical hypocrisy, the left-wing organization One Wisconsin Now is also complaining that Governor Walker is raising money to defend himself.

Total hypocrisy being shown by the left in Wisconsin.

Nevermind that One Wisconsin Now is “using” Scott Walker to raise money. And once again, One Wisconsin Now is outraged that Gov. Walker would raise money to defend himself against a recall election that they have been helping to organize for over a year!

This comes on the heels of One Wisconsin Now’s phony outrage over Gov. Walker’s evil out-of-state campaign contributions. One again, they failed to show outrage when national labor unions poured nearly $8 million into last summer’s recalls.

As has been the case in Wisconsin for nearly a year. It’s only OK if liberals do it.

This hypocrisy knows no bounds.

And people wonder what the REAL problem is in Wisconsin when it comes to politics.  It’s that the liberal left can’t handle defeat.  The liberal left can’t wait until the next “scheduled” election to see if it can’t win.  No it has to go the recall route and then complain that someone who is conservative dare raise money to defend their seat.

Shocking news about Koch donations

Some truth that the liberals/unions/Democrats in Wisconsin may not like.  It seems the Koch brothers didn’t only donate to Scott Walker and other Republicans.  They also donated to Democrats!

Assembly Democratic Campaign Committee $4,000.00
Bernard Schaber, Penny                                  $500.00
Colon, Pedro                                                    $250.00
Decker, Russ                                                   $1,000.00

Be sure to point this out when approached by a “Recall Walker” person about signing the recall petition.  Especially if they bring up the Koch brothers.

$1 million from foreign-affiliated PAC’s

No it’s not the U.S. Chamber of Commerce or right-leaning groups that have raised that amount.  It’s the Democrats who have.

Democratic leaders in the House and Senate criticizing GOP groups for allegedly funneling foreign money into campaign ads have seen their party raise more than $1 million from political action committees affiliated with foreign companies.

House and Senate Democrats have received approximately $1.02 million this cycle from such PACs, according to an analysis compiled for The Hill by the Center for Responsive Politics.

“This is not foreign money per-se, but these PACs are certainly populated by people who work for foreign companies,” said Dave Levinthal, a spokesman for the Center for Responsive Politics.

“Foreign companies and foreign governments can lobby Congress, and that is probably one area where they have a measurable effect on politics,” Levinthal explained. “Foreign-subsidiary political action committees is about as close as you can get.”

Sheer hypocrisy on the part of Democrats …

Barack Obama criticized the Supreme Court and his adversaries over the bogus charge of foreign money tainting elections – while leaders in his own party had taken more than a million dollars from the foreign cookie jar,” said Jonathan Collegio, a spokesman for American Crossroads, the political group at the center of the controversy.

“The hypocrisy here is just stunning,” he said.

especially when you consider what occurred back in 2008.

“In 2008, the president benefited from $400 million worth of spending by outside groups on his behalf in the presidential campaign, most of whom did not reveal their donors,” Rove said Tuesday on Fox News. “I guess that was not a threat to democracy then because this kind of activity was being undertaken by Democrat groups.”

Looks like a can of worms was opened by the Democrats with this desperation play.  But when you can’t run on the issues …

Attacks by President Obama and Democrats backfiring?

Less than three weeks from the election and instead of focusing on the issues President Obama and the Democrats we have questioning of the funding sources of Republican-leaning groups.

President Barack Obama is stepping up criticism of tax-exempt Republican-leaning groups using undisclosed donations to fund “attack ads” less than a month before congressional elections, a complaint his opponents call baseless.

“It could be the oil industry” funding the ads, Obama told a Democratic rally yesterday in Philadelphia. “It could be the insurance industry, it could even be foreign-owned corporations. You don’t know because they don’t have to disclose.”

Democrats have spent weeks rebuking pro-Republican outside groups that are flooding the airwaves with tens of millions of dollars worth of ads before the Nov. 2 midterm elections. A new ad from the Democratic National Committee says the U.S. Chamber of Commerce may be taking “secret foreign money to influence our elections,” a charge the business group denies.

It’s a strategy that apparently is backfiring.  Likely due to a recognition by the voters that it is a misdirection and diversion tactic away from the serious issues.

“The president, by attacking American Crossroads, has helped drive people to our website and has helped to raise the amount of money that we received,” Rove said Wednesday on Fox News.

Rove said donations to the American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS have spiked in the week since Obama stepped up his assault on the outside groups that are airing attack ads, but aren’t required to disclose their donors. “And that $13.3 million that we’ve received since he began these attacks is going to allow us to help broaden the playing field,” he added.

Officials at the Crossroads groups, formed earlier this year with the help of Rove and Gillespie, initially said they intended to raise anywhere from $50 million to $60 million. But on Wednesday, a spokesman announced that with the $13.3 million raised the last week, the groups had pulled in $56 million since their creation, and were setting a new goal of $65 million.

Or maybe it has to do with the sheer hypocrisy of the Democrats on this issue.

Obama likes to pretend he’s running against greedy financial-industry millionaires, but look down the list of top donors in September, and you’ll see partners and managers of hedge funds and private equity firms like Grosvenor Capital Management, Saturn Asset Management, and Chicago’s Delaware Street Capital all giving the DNC the maximum. Other hedge-fund donors who give the max come from Bain Capital and the Tudor Investment Corporation.

Obama famously rejects lobbyist cash, but he defines lobbyist pretty narrowly — only currently registered federal lobbyists are banned. That means state lobbyists are allowed to make donations, as are lobbyists who choose not to register, as well as lobbyists’ wives.

First, Barack Obama knows about outside spending by special interests: In 2008, the Service Employees International Union spent $27 million in independent expenditures to help Obama, while the United Auto Workers shelled out $4.9 million.

And this election, outside groups are spending big to save the Democratic majority, too. Jon Ward at the Daily Caller reported that three big labor unions will spend about $145 million to help Democrats this year, while EMILY’s List and MoveOn.org plan to spend about $75 million.

Those expenditures bring pro-Democratic outside spending within striking distance of pro-Republican outside spending. Throw in the edge the official Democratic committees enjoy over the GOP committees, and you’ve got parity. (Source: Washington Examiner)

Whatever the reason it shows just how desperate the Democrats and their fearless leader President Barack Hussein Obama as a result of their actions the last 20 months.
