Obama Surrogates Kick Off Mediscare Campaign

Obama Surrogates Kick Off Mediscare Campaign

You may remember “Priorities USA,” the group former White House spokesman Bill Burton started back in April. Reports at the time indicated that the new “super PAC” will follow the new rules dictated by the Citizens United case, meaning that they can accept unlimited, undisclosed contributions from corporations and labor unions. This is a perfectly legal exercise of their first amendment rights in my view, but let’s ask Bill Burton what he thinks about it. From the Daily Caller:

“Unless a bright light is shined on the shadowy activity of these outside groups, people aren’t going to know the facts, which is that with their complete lack of transparency, Lord knows who’s participated in these races,” said White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton said during a meeting with reporters on Air Force One on October 15. “And the president thinks that if you’re going to participate in politics, you ought to be transparent about it.”

Well, now we know what kind of self-described “shadowy activity” Burton is using his funds for. That’s right–it’s more Mediscare demagoguery:

This kind of ad is pretty typical as far as these far-left groups go. In fact, it’s tame compared to this. But the fact that it’s coming from Burton, who was Obama’s national press secretary during the 2008 campaign, suggests that this is the tack the reelection campaign is going to take in 2012. As a young person, I just hope that whoever gets the Republican nomination doesn’t cave into the pressure and back down on entitlement reform.

““And the president thinks that if you’re going to participate in politics, you ought to be transparent about it.”

Remember this comes from an Admin that is not transparent about anything, and only a few right leaning blogs call them on it.

…I just hope that whoever gets the Republican nomination doesn’t cave into the pressure and back down on entitlement reform.

Please keep in mind that the nickname for the Republican Party is: ‘The Stupid Party’.   That’s not a slight on the average conservative or Republican voter per se, but it does seem to reflect the stupidity all too often exhibited by our so called leaders in the Republican Party, I’m sad to say.

If they sold this to George Soros, HA! HA! HA!

But let them buy all the ads they please.

Just like the one that’s showing now … where Dane County’s sheriff, and Sumi, said voting for Abrahamson was just the ticket.

You think that ad (if Abrahamson is replaying it on her TV, to make her feel better these days) … is actually working?

Thelma and Louise. Whose driving?
