Barack Obama Gives Seal of Disapproval to Americans For Prosperity

Update: Some minor edits
made after "fishing."
Bill Smith, Editor: President Obama spoke on August 9th to the Democratic National Committee in Austin, Texas. Interesting enough, the people of the United States paid for this political fund raising trip. President Obama couldn't restrain himself from taking pot shots at the American people. His speech is available on the White House website at least for hopefully a few more days.

One of the organizations that Mr. Obama disparaged was Americans for Prosperity. Mr. Obama said:

Right now all around this country there are groups with harmless-sounding names like Americans for Prosperity, who are running millions of dollars of ads against Democratic candidates all across the country. And they don't have to say who exactly the Americans for Prosperity are. You don't know if it’s a foreign-controlled corporation. You don't know if it’s a big oil company, or a big bank. You don't know if it’s a [sic] insurance company that wants to see some of the provisions in health reform repealed because it’s good for their bottom line, even if it’s not good for the American people.

A Supreme Court decision allowed this to happen. And we tried to fix it, just by saying disclose what’s going on, and making sure that foreign companies can’t influence our elections. Seemed pretty straightforward. The other side said no.

They don't want you to know who the Americans for Prosperity are, because they're thinking about the next election. But we’ve got to think about future generations. We’ve got to make sure that we’re fighting for reform. We’ve got to make sure that we don't have a corporate takeover of our democracy.
Well Mr. President, I will help you find one supporters. This old veteran and retired professor - turned political activist because of the liberal progressive elitist raid on America - is a proud member of American's For Prosperity (and many other groups). So, Mr. President, why are you vicariously attacking me and people like me by attacking Americans for Prosperity?

Obama, Reid, and Pelosi have motivated tens of thousands of people in Arkansas in 2009 and 2010 to attend rallies and events sponsored by its new Arkansas Americans for Prosperity Chapter. There are no "meetings" but there are all kinds of "meet-ups" for training, rallies and events across the state. We share ideals, investigate and analyze government spending, provide data, rally voters to share their opinions with their elected officials and vote. We encourage people to be active in like minded groups like TEA Parties, American Majority citizen training, taxpayer groups, and more.

Arkansas, a state controlled by 126 years of plantation politics, has been awakened by the Obama administration and the national Democrat agenda. Change is coming in November! This effect is also happening in other states with Americans for Prosperity chapters.

Mr. President, I invite you to join me at the AFP Defending the American Dream Summit in Washington, D.C. on August 27 and 28. If by chance you are too busy to come and listen, then just peek out your White House window on August 28 (8/28) to see millions of people gathering from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington monument to all the surrounding areas to honor America and the principles of our forefathers that most Americans hold dear.

Returning to the President speech, what upset him so much that he negatively endorsed Americas for Prosperity? Obama offers the answer; he wants AFP's membership and donor list. He also wants access to all conservative activist groups' membership and donor lists. Notice how he imputes that there is something wrong when in fact, there is nothing wrong. He then criticizes the Supreme Court for defending the right of people to associate and to express themselves without fear of intimidation by the Federal Government. In AFP, people associate with like minded people in pursuit of Defending the American Dream which includes what the DNC and President Obama dread: LIMITED GOVERNMENT and INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM. These are important ingredients that motivate people to do for themselves, to find creative ways to create and invent things, to solve problems, to provide new jobs, and to expand American exceptionalism.

It is evident from recent national polls that President Obama and the democrat controlled Congress has not focused on the issues that most American consider important. Failed promises combined with government the takeover of the auto and health care industries, bailouts of banks and now teachers unions, strangling of the economy, constant apology and bowing tours, entertainment and vacation trips, and more have moved the American people to speak disapprovingly to their elected officials and to put forward more conservative constitutionally minded candidates to help defend the American dream.

The President, in the speech, also bemoans AFP and other organizations that have the resources to run informational ads, which expose the hypocrisy and the dangers of the present progressive elitist in Washington, D.C.

Last month, Americans for Prosperity infuriated the liberal elitists by fielded RightOnline to rival NetRoots annual activist meeting. This year in Las Vegas, RightOnline attracted more activists than NetRoots. While liberal NetRoots activists were downcast and unhappy with their speakers like VP Joe Biden, Harry Reid and Speaker Pelosi; RightOnline speakers expressed optimism and fervor for citizens to take back our country and to repeal the agenda put in place by the Obama administration. Mr. Obama has indeed awakened the American people.

Thank you Mr. President for "plugging" Americas For Prosperity. Your comments will help rally others to the AFP cause. While Dick Morris, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachmann, Mike Pence, George Will and dozens of other limited government advocates have this year helped rally people, your words will help us greatly. Thank you Mr. Obama for giving your "Seal of Disapproval" to Americans for Prosperity! They can proudly wear this seal with dignity and honor.

Thinking about future generations. Yeah, right. If that's the case, Congress wouldn't be committing "generational theft" as Sarah Palin put it. Stealing from future generations because they're concerned with their own agenda. That's called selfishness, Mr. President.

Funny how Obama wants to know who contributes to Americans for Prosperity but doesn't seem concerned about the contributors to the NCY mosque. Sigh...

Bev, Good point. Also, why were Unions exempted.
