    It appears the President and Gov. Romney will face off in November. There is no doubt big money is behind Romney and is donating anonymously enormous funds to Super PAC's which have engaged in negative campaigning during the GOP nomination circus.

    Or, Obama can keep laundering money through his failed Green Energy companies

    You're either a liar and an asshole frank or know something (which would surprise just about everyone).

    If you know something make the allegation specific as to who, what, when, where and how, under penalty perjury, to an agent with the FBI and to the readership of the USMB.

    Otherwise live with my assessment of you as a liar and an asshole. Evidenced by this thread in terms of who, what, where, when and how.

    And Obama has yet reversed another previously held position on Super Pacs. He is really reaching into those newly beloved 1%ers...:lol:

    "President Obama once called 'super' political action committees — which can raise and spend unlimited amounts of cash to influence elections — a 'threat to our democracy.' Now, his re-election campaign is asking its wealthiest fund-raisers to start helping him cash in.

    he's already got the dnc to do his dirty work (like taking wall st money hand over fist) but sure, why not?

    as the idiot said above, it's within the rules, and at least he won't be pretending any more that he's some hardscrabble grassroots candidate.

    The decision by Obama to encourage donors to give to a Super PAC was rather hypocritical in my book.
