    You may have already heard Obama's Teleprompter say this, or seen one of the DNC Ads...

    My Question is this...

    Back in 2008, there was a LARGE Chunk of ObamaInc Money that wasn't Tagged back to anyone at the time...

    Secret Money, as it were.

    Was that ever Clarified, or did some of that Money stay Secret?...

    And was it Foreign?...

    I can't seem to Find much on this now, but I Sure it's going to Surface since Obama is out Crying like a Baby about it from the other Side now.

    Should be Interesting.

    :)

    peace...

    FOX News has more on Obama’s latest lie:
    Top Republican strategists Ed Gillespie, left, and Karl Rove, right, slam the president and the Democratic Party over the claim that GOP groups and the Chamber of Commerce use foreign contributions to boost their candidates in midterm elections.
    Karl Rove, a Fox News contributor, said on “Fox News Sunday” that the president had gone too far.
    “Have these people no shame? Does the president of the United States
    have such little regard for the office that he holds that he goes out there and makes these kind of baseless charges against his political enemies?”
    Rove said. “This is just beyond the pale. How dare the president do this.”
    Rove was referring to a series of charges that have been leveled over the past week. Obama first said at a rally in Maryland Thursday that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which he referred to without mentioning by name, was paying for ads against Democrats while taking money from “foreign corporations.”
    “So groups that receive foreign money are spending huge sums to influence American elections, and they won’t tell you where the money for their ads come from,” Obama said.






    In other news:








    (Daily Caller)- President Obama on Sunday stepped back from categorical charges he made earlier this week that foreign money was funding conservative TV campaign ads, telling a rally in Philadelphia only that such a scenario was possible.
    The softening of Obama’s language reflects the impact of a Saturday report on the issue by the New York Times, which concluded that charges originally made by a blog run by a Democratic-aligned think tank were baseless.

    On Thursday, at a rally at Bowie State University in Maryland, Obama said this: “Just this week, we learned that one of the largest groups paying for these ads regularly takes in money from foreign corporations.”
    But on Sunday, speaking to several thousand supporters in Philadelphia, he said that donors to groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce “could even be foreign-owned corporations.”
    “You don’t know because they don’t have to disclose,” Obama said.
    Obama’s backtracking on the issue follows several days of intense debate on the subject, following the posting Tuesday of the charges at ThinkProgress.org, the blog that is operated under the umbrella of the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank run by John Podesta, who oversaw Obama’s transition team in the winter of 2008.

    I hope when the Republican get back control of things, they investigate just WHERE the Obama got all his money to run his Presidential campaign.

    That is one reason the Obama is screaming so loudly to the people who elected him to, "not let him down".

    They don't want anyone prying into his shady dealings.

    Karl Rove lied about foreign campaign contributions.

    Half of the AFL-CIO's unions are international.
