A recent article in Politico says the billionaires that are funding the republicans and Mitt Romney's campaign are miffed and upset over the media scrutiny they are receiving. Well gee whiz. I guess the old adage "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen" shouldn't apply to those who want to buy a presidential election.
Yesterday it was reported that these moneymen are going to put up over one billion dollars (That's Billion with a "B" folks) to defeat President Obama. That's one billion dollars worth of baseless lies and distortions; most containing veiled racist remarks that will be cluttering your television sets, telephone lines and mailboxes from now till Election Day. I don't know about you, but I want to know whom these people are and what they have to gain by putting up such huge sums of money.
None of these right wing "patriots" are doing this out of love of country. On the contrary, they're putting up the money to get a much bigger return when Mitt Romney starts more wars and rolls back all the regulations that have prevented these poor souls from making hundreds of billions instead of just tens of billions.
One billion dollars or more to possibly defeat President Obama. Do you think that the American Cancer Society or the Heart Association could put that money to better use? What about feeding and sheltering the homeless and taking care of our veterans? Nope, there's no money in altruism for our "patriotic" billionaires. It's just a game for them to see who ends up with the most toys and a president who they can control like a marionette is the ultimate toy.
Is this what the five Supreme Court conservatives had in mind when they found in favor of "Citizen's United"? You bet it is. The billionaires contributing to the Romney campaign bought the five conservative justices long ago.
So if you want to fix the presidential election for your own personal gain fellas, you're going to have to do it in the daylight of full disclosure, not from the murky shadows where you usually operate. And if you don't like the daylight, I'm sure you can spring for a pair of expensive sunglasses.
