Axelrod: Chamber Of Commerce Guilty Till Proven Innocent

Continuing that Great American Principle, Mr. Astroturf chimes in

White House senior adviser David Axelrod said the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has the burden of proving false the charge by Democrats that the business group is funneling foreign money to Republican campaigns.

Axelrod was pressed by CBS’ Bob Schieffer on Sunday for evidence that the foreign campaign contributions benefiting the GOP is more than “peanuts.”

“Do you have any evidence that it’s not, Bob?” Axelrod said on “Face the Nation.” “The fact is that the Chamber has asserted that, but they won’t release any information about where their campaign money is coming from. And that’s at the core of the problem.”

Do you have any evidence that they are guilty, Dave? How about your boss, Barack Obama, who whined about the Chamber, a private entity, engaged in Constitutionally protected Free Speech, yet again on Sunday in Philly.

Tell you what, David: let’s have those investigations come late January. We’ll also investigate the donations to one Senator Barack H. Obama (oops, I wrote the H, means I’m a raaaaacist or something) during the run up to the 2008 elections. You’re good with that, right, David?

Obviously, the Chamber gives most of its money to Republicans, especially in the Senate, though, in 2008, they did give more to House Democrats than House Republicans. Shocker, since Democrats are continuously anti-business.

All this is is another distraction from the issues that matter to the American People, to steal a Democrat talking point. The People care about jobs, they care about the economy, they care about not seeing their cost of living skyrocket thanks to Dem policies, they care about not seeing their taxes go up thanks to Democrats. Democrats do not want to run on their record, so, they jump in the mud and distract. They lie, they distort, and they give us stupid platitudes

“Philadelphia, they can’t have the keys back,” Obama said. “They don’t know how to drive. They can ride with us if they want, but they’ve got to get in the back seat.”

Remember when Obama talked about a new way of doing business in Washington? How’s that hopey changey thing working out for ya, Obama voters?

More: Ed Morrissey points out that the White House is walking back some of its rhetoric on the issue, saying that the Chamber is not doing anything illegal. Yet, they’re still being attacked.

Michelle Malkin discusses Democrats and their foreign funny money.

Mother Jones thinks the Chamber is “guilty till proven innocent.”Interesting how liberals spent 8 years whining about Bush trashing the Constitution, yet, Dems through the Constitution overboard the minute it becomes inconvenient.

Nice Deb has video of Karl Rove responding to the allegations.

    Obama is following the exact footsteps of FDR. It is as if he is a reincarntion of the man or as if the Dems have a playbook on how to create and prolong a depression. It is beyond clear that this administration is doing everything they can to destroy the economy and suck wealth out of our pockets.

    And add to that David of vilifying and attacking those who have diverse opinions. Calling illegal things they don’t like.

    I call it… obama and his cronies will soon call a hearing in to the money of the CofC. They will demand an end to the loophole that the Republicans are using, yet complain of racism and hegemony when Republicans want to close the Democrat’s loopholes.

    I pray and pray and pray that the constant attack by the DEMS upon the common man and our everyday businesses will be fodder for a massive constituent revolt over the next 2 years.

    It as plain as this people:
    Vote for Dem: Get Socialism and an end to America.

    Vote for Repub\Conservatve: Get limited government, reduced taxes, more freedoms, more jobs, more money in your pocket, more local controls, less foreign oil, defense of allies, fight against terror, etc.

    Personally, it is my opinion that we would not be discussing foreign money at all if Fred Thompson had done his job as chairman of a Senate Committee in the ’90’s assigned to investigate the Clinton’s campaign fund donations from the Chinese Govt, which he neatly diverted to a bi-partisan witch hunt to make sure GOP were as equally tarred with “ethics” challenges” as the Dims, and for making sure that John Glenn got his second trip into outer space.

    I have a short list on Fred Thompson former prosecutor who managed to advance Dim and John McCain causes beyond their natural lives, and to go tremendously beyond the bounds of Justice to spare the Clintons from removal from office and installation into Prison – while he was a US Senate in the GOP Party.

    If he had cleaned up the Clintons and Algore in the 90’s properly, the Dims wouldn’t still be saturated in Foreign money, and nobody would be making FALSE ALLEGATIONS of such against the Chamber, while being overwhelmingly and abjectly guilty of the same charges, themselves.

    Thanks, Fred Thompson, I’ll always remember YOU!
