    During the Gore 2000 campaign, Republicans made a big deal about the possibility of Chinese money infiltrating American politics. Remember when Gore visited that Chinese temple?

    What happened to all that concern?

    Now, Mittens could be secretly bankrolled by the Chinese government, and nobody would know for sure, due to Citizens United, and secret contributors.

    Why aren't Republicans screaming about this?

    Or are they only concerned when a Democrat may be receiving the money?

    Republicans apparently are intellectual pussies.

    I am concerned about the influence of foreign donations to the Obama campaign. Of course, that may be just because I am not a Republican.

    Can you actually address the OP? I'm sure you remember the hissy fits that Republicans threw in 2000, accusing Gore of taking "foreign money" *gasp*!!!

    Republicans felt there was something inherently wrong with the Chinese pouring money into our electoral system.

    What changed their minds?

    I told you. I oppose Chinese money pouring into the fucking Campaign coffers of The ONE.

    Opposed is opposed.

    Why doesn't it bother you?

    Washington (CNN) -- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.

    Being basically a trade organization, the Chamber of Commerce doesn't have to say who it's donors are, but we do know they get a lot from China, Russia and India. And they give to Republicans over Democrats 9 or 10 to 1. This has been linked to many times on this site so right wingers, if you don't believe it, prove it.

    So of course Republicans have no problem with China.

    Romney said he wants to bring immigrants here with degrees. But for this country? Larger class size and fewer teachers. I'm guessing because of what Santorum said.

    And you could care less about foreign money going into the Romney campaign. I bet you supported Citizens United.

    Liability figures that since he's only got 26 days left on this forum, why bother debating? :lol:
