It is almost comical to listen to the One and his cronies in their desperate flailing about to try to find something…anything… they can use to stop the tsunami they know is coming their way in 3 weeks.
The latest sorry episode is the ridiculous attempt to lambaste the Chamber of Commerce as being part of some insidious conspiracy to damage Democrat candidates using…eeeek!…foreign money! Oh, the horror!!!!!
There’s just one problem… it’s not true and everybody knows it.
It’s beyond comical to watch the party that cries “RAAAACISM” whenever conservatives question their shady foreign funny money suddenly sounding the alarm over non-U.S. campaign cash. And it’s beyond galling to hear Democrats fret about foreign intrigue while the foreign-agent-in-chief has inextricably tied America’s fate to the Chinese holders of our T-bills. Guess we’re all “nativists” now, eh, President Obama?
The Chamber-bashing claims are so baseless that the New York Times concluded that “there is little evidence that what the chamber does in collecting overseas dues is improper or even unusual, according to both liberal and conservative election-law lawyers and campaign finance documents.”
Liberal CBS journalist Bob Schieffer scoffed at Axelrod: “If the only charge three weeks into the election that the Democrats can make is that somehow this may or may not be foreign money coming into the campaign — is that the best you can do?” Look Who’s Nativist Now – Michelle Malkin – National Review Online.
Axelrod’s response to that last question is where this really gets bizzare. When challenged about what evidence he had that this was taking place, his response was: “Do you have any evidence that it’s not?”
So now we have moved from “innocent until proven guilty” to a situation where political hacks can throw out the most baseless charges and then shift the burden of proof to the victim of the smear to establish their innocence?
All this from the candidate who lectured us that our greatest problem was “cynicism”…. what a joke!
