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.
