Remember those “shadowy groups” the president said were infiltrating our democracy? The political action committees created by the Supreme Court decision liberals love to hate, Citizens United? The ones that can take bottomless contributions from the 1 percent?
Well, Barack Obama’s campaign will use super PACs. CNN reports “that senior campaign and administration officials who participate at fundraising events for the president’s campaign will also appear at events for Priorities USA Action, the PAC supporting Obama.” Naturally, they blame the success of Republican super PACs for this decision, saying they will not “unilaterally disarm.”
Unilaterally disarm? This is a campaign that once talked about raising $1 billion on its own and, failing that, has raised more money than all the Republican candidates combined. At the end of December, Obama had four times as much cash on hand as Mitt Romney. Super PACs are the only thing keeping it even. Now, I don’t object to the president’s supporters having super PACs. But give me a break.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
