From the ‘Truth Team’: It appears that the Obama campaign has taken it upon itself, via their ‘Truth Team’ website, to attempt to publicly shame each of Romney’s donors and bundlers.
As the presumptive GOP nominee, Mitt Romney is relying on a cadre of high-dollar and special-interest donors to fund his campaign. Giving information about his real policy intentions and high-level access for cash, Romney and Republicans are working hard to pull in as much money as they can from wealthy lobbyists, corporations, and PACs. But just who are the people that Romney has called on for campaign cash?
A closer look at Romney’s donors reveals a group of wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records. Quite a few have been on the wrong side of the law, others have made profits at the expense of so many Americans, and still others are donating to help ensure Romney puts beneficial policies in place for them. Here’s a look at just a few of the people Romney has relied on:”
They then begin by listing by name individual donors and bundlers and use inflammatory language and insinuation to paint each of these people as somehow evil. They quote legitimate and legal business practices in ways that make them seem insidious. Examples:
They also control the Harbour Group investment firm which bragged about buying an automotive accessories manufacturing company in Kansas in 1997 and moving production to Mexico. In 2002, the Harbour group’s Mexico operation decided to outsource to China because China was “offering incentives and making it easy to open operations there.” The Chinese government awarded Sam Fox the Marco Polo Award for “his company’s role in China’s economic development and his humanitarian contributions to that country.”
“He is also a “litigious, combative, and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement” who “spent big” on ads in an “ultimately unsuccessful effort to force Idaho Public Television to cancel a program that showed gays and lesbians in a favorable light to school children.”
These underhanded efforts are made before a background of Obama’s claims of transparency and the facts. The facts are that he will not release records when requested unless they somehow help him. Claims of open and fair government are just claims. He continually says one thing and does something else. The only things the mainstream media reports are the claims; never the reality.
