    Does this also mean that he is going to repeat his illegal fundraising from unverified donors like “Mickey Mouse” et al.??? What happened to Mr. “Small Donations fund my campaign”?? What happened to the “billion dollar” campaign chest that ?bama was supposed to have amassed?
    Just more questions for ?bama’s Opaque Transparency mill….

    Thank goodness. The R’s changed the rules through the $upremes, so Obama could go to the fight with a knife vs machine guns. No choice here for him.
    And I just made a donation of $199 (the limit that you can remain anonymous) to a senate candidate. I didn’t want my name on the campaign fin. disclosures to be scrutinized by other candidates’ campaign staffs, which is what they do. Doesn’t make it illegal…sigh.

    OMG, so much hang wringing about money in election campaigns. We have allowed a system of politics in which the ONLY thing that matters is to be elected. And the election cycle never ends. And it’s tit-for-tat at every ratcheting up of the process.

      So tell Obama and the dems to stop complaining about fairness. Finally corporate America and the average worker have a right to counter all that union money. If corporations don’t deserve? freedom of speech, neither do the unions.

    The tit-for-tat will continue. The unions have been around for a long time (both parties should have been used to it by now). The freedom of speech for corporations is a just-hatched newbie. If you feel so strongly, you also can tell Obama by sending him an e-mail. It will not be considered spam.

      “Used to it” equals complacency leading to apathy which is effectively tacit approval.
      Weren’t the people in the Soviet Union “used to it” too?

      And not be allowed to explain the reason or condition, therefore be taken out of context.
      Your side complains about the influence of corporate money in elections, while I personally feel that unions are no different. Your side doesn’t seem to mind THAT money and power ?influencing elections. ?

    Obammy will say and do ANYTHING to get reelected, and he has no problem at all going back on his word. ?The man is a pathological liar without a conscious care in the world. ?He leaves his messes for other people to clean up, believing in the manufactured reality he calls his life. His narcissism is on display daily… though one day his arrogance will be his downfall!

    Ramirez will never appear in the Springfield “Republican”, as the far lefty Toles has dominated the cartoon space on the editorial/opinion page.? Thank God for the internet!
