President Barack Obama, hypocrisy or necessity in giving blessings to Super PAC, Priorities USA Action?
Politico: “President Barack Obama has reversed course and is now blessing the efforts of a sputtering super PAC, Priorities USA Action, organized to fight GOP dark-money attacks.
On Monday morning, Obama reviled the “negative” tone of the super PACs, a dominant fundraising source in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. But by the evening, word leaked to POLITICO that Obama had offered his support for Priorities USA Action, which thus far has raised a fraction of what GOP-backed groups have raked in.”
All politicians who hide behind Super PACs are a bunch of hypocrites. That includes President Obama. Yes, I said.
