Hoisted With Their Own Petard…

President Barack Obama’s most recent assault on conservatives is a new twist for the Democrats’ old school tactics of distraction, duplicity and defamation. As a November to Remember approaches in the fast lane, Obama has pulled the handbrake on reason… and steered his party into oncoming traffic.

His latest tactic: An effort to chain conservatives to that hotbed of radicalism, foreign intrigue and evil known colloquially as the United States Chamber of Commerce. Although seemingly a mild-mannered bunch of folks who wear khakis to work and own small businesses with those digital time-and-temperature displays out front; the Chamber, according to the Democrats, is a front for a massive monetary pipeline which funnels ducats from the darkest corners of the earth into the accounts of Republican and Tea Party candidates here at home.

We know what depths these bastards are plumbing, because Obama and his ever-vigilant allies have presented us with a mountain of… er… a plethora… um… a couple of examples… well, they said so; so it must be true.

They have it partly right. There IS a candidate out there who has collected huge sums of untraceable largesse from some fairly shady characters in some fairly shady locations. Some of this particular pol’s hauls were loaded in HAMAS and Tamil Tiger terrorist camps (more than $35,000). Some flowed forth from the oil-rich United Arab Emirates (more than $25,000). Some of the yuan even started its journey in Chinese communist checkbooks (a whopping $366,708.22).

But this mendacious money-grubber is no Republican. There is no Tea Party-backed candidate with their fingerprints all over this overseas swag. The beneficiary of the booty in question is none other than Barack Hussein Obama.

That’s right, kiddies. Every single shovelful of cash I just described went to your community activist-in-chief. It should be noted that when informed of a similar Tamil-tainted donation, Hillary Clinton returned the loot. The HAMAS-linked Money Claus listed his hometown as “Rafah, GA, 972.” Rafah isn’t some pastoral Peach State paradise, it’s a HAMAS-controlled refugee camp in Gaza (hence the GA).

As for the “972” — it’s clearly not a metro Atlanta zip code, but it IS the telephone area code for Israel, including the Rafah refugee camp. Also in Obama’s kitty: Cash from a donor listed with the Federal Election Commission as “Doodad” ($10,780), who listed his (or her) employer as “FDGFDGF,” where “Doodad” toils as a “DFGFDG.” Additionally noteworthy is a list of donors — whose largesse included dollars AND cents (think foreign exchange) — nearly as interminably long as a Proust seminar taught by a Chevalier impersonator with a speech impediment.

Last Sunday morning David Axelrod, Obama’s latter-day Goebbels, found himself squirming in the unlikely crosshairs of none other than Bob Schieffer. Schieffer, who once claimed he was unaware of the Democrats’ connection to the New Black Panther Party because he was “on vacation,” is apparently back from his intellectual beach house. When Axelrod vomited up Obama’s “Chamber of Commerce + GOP = some cat with too many consonants in his name is stealing the election” talking points, Schieffer — to paraphrase Obama’s own administration — stepped on Axelrod’s neck:

Schieffer: “But this part about foreign money, that appears to be peanuts, Mister Axelrod, I mean, do you have any evidence that it’s anything other than peanuts?”

Axelrod: “Well, do you have any evidence that it’s not?”

Axelrod’s response reveals the old “throw enough poo at the wall” strategy, one step from a “list of 205 names.”

Schieffer’s “peanuts” comment was a reference to a report in The New York Times (the rats are leaping off the liberal ship) which revealed that not only do the Democrats’ latest attacks on the Chamber and GOP lack citation, they’re purely defamatory, a simple “big lie” gambit. Evidently, Obama is counting on CBS returning Nielsen ratings which couldn’t make the Knitting Channel jealous because Obama was beating the drum again Tuesday. According to Obama’s spokesmodel Robert Gibbs:

"There’s no reason to back off. If there are organizations raising tens of millions of dollars that won’t tell us who their donors are, my guess is they’re not telling us for a reason — because they have something to hide."

Setting aside the fact that Obama has bagged boodle from Bangkok to British Petroleum (he’s the largest individual recipient of BP’s black gold), I can put this chapter of the DNC’s desperation down as quickly as Michael Moore can hover the spread on the craft services table.

But, I’ll give the honor to Schieffer:

“If the only charge three weeks (from) the election that the Democrats can make is that somehow this may or may not be foreign money coming into the campaign, is that the best you can do?”
