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?
