#rsrh QotD, …Dear God. FIREDOGLAKE Edition.

Believe me, it’s alarming to me, too: but Jon Walker has a point here about Obama’s excitingly new position on Super PACs.

When the Supreme Court handed down its Citizens United ruling, Obama still had one of the largest Democratic majorities in Congress in decades.  But Democrats still didn’t do anything about it. If they viewed that holding as truly critical, the Democrats could have passed a law addressing the issue. Passing legislation about campaign finance reform was simply not a priority for the Obama administration.

With, of course, the caveat that the Citizens United decision was ‘campaign finance reform.’  I’m not particularly bothered by the fact itself that Barack Obama is embracing Super PACs: I always knew that he was a liar who would abandon his previous rhetoric on the subject.

But I gotta say: watching the Online Left largely grit its teeth and pretend that nothing’s wrong while the weasels gnaw their entrails on this is remarkably entertaining.

    Virtually every word he utters has an expiration date. Should be funny he starts backtracking the HHS Decision.

    I think Kathleen Sebelius just nominated the next President, when all’s said and done the Historians will trace Santorums’ wins back to her decision. He should send her a nice gift Basket say something with a dead fish.

    @Catseye – It will be interesting to see how that plays out. But I think Americans are disgusted by the whole administration – Obama, Biden, Sebelius, Holder, Geithner – goodness, where did these incompetent, corrupt, treacherous people come from?
