Obama seems to be obsessed with his critics. I think this is an attempt to nip what he sees as a problem in the bud. Sounds like the Tides Foundation to me. A left leaning brokerage for foreign donations. They specialize in hiding the source of funds from the IRS and the public. This guy really has alot of gall. He has several sources of income similar to the AFP and he dares to start complaining about it when the opposition does exactly what he's doing.
