Skip to comments.Barack Obama attempts to intimidate contributors to Mitt Romney's campaign.

Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.
Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for "betting against America," and accuses you of having a "less-than-reputable" record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.

Maybe they are “less-than-reputable”.
Those types fund candidates from both parties.
What will happen during the debates when this law goes into effect? Could Romney get arrested at the debates if he talks against the President? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljLi_hBLy3A
Just who is Jon Corzine? And who is he bundling donations for nowadays?
Once you can get past the “lovable”, “popular” and “likable” part, communism is uglier than hell.
Yes, Satin Doll. Greasy Corzone came to my mind immediately too on this one.
You can take the thug out of Chicago...
I wonder if Romney will express any objections to this.
My guess: no. Crickets.
Obama is not the second coming of Jimmy Carter. He is the second coming of Ricard Nixon.
You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney....
....You made a mistake donating that money.
Next time dont drink so much...
Yup. I still remember this - http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2008/09/missouris_obama_truth_squads_2.html
And Joe the plumber....
May God give us strength.
Comments at source are interesting in both their substance and volume against Obama.
I understand the current at this site is against Romney. But if not him, who? Do we leave the Chicago thug ayt Pennsylvania Ave? I for one will support Romney. Remember if we can get enough of the right congressmen and senators in place, we can do alot, more if Romney is there than if Obama is there. If Obama retains the presidency, the nation is lost.
Then donate like the Democrats and foreign dictators do, with pre-purchased visa debit cards. What?
That is an affront to the memory of Richard Nixon.
Remember if we can get enough of the right congressmen and senators in place,
Whats “the right congressmen and senators” got to do with the presidency ???
Congress is a whole other branch of government...
When did we start picking a congress to be watchdogs on our own paqrtys president ???
Why not just elect the “right” congress
and a president other than Willie Mitty...
No worries kid...
In practical terms, who do you have in mind that can defeat Obama this point? Congress is important in that the control the purse strings, and generate the laws. The president is just a suggester of laws. He can propose up the wazoo, but only Congress can do any action. As you said, they are a separate branch of government with their own duties.
The corruption of this usurper in the White House is unprecedented.
I'm no fan of Nixon, but Obama is not worthy to shine Nixon's shoes.
Agree. Nixon had some personal honor, that is why he eventually resigned. The other two are incompetent, narcissistic, anti-Semitic boobs.
Remember if we can get enough of the right congressmen and senators in place, we can do alot, more if Romney is there than if Obama is there. If Obama retains the presidency, the nation is lost.>>>>
We thought we had the House locked up after the 2010 election, see where that got us. The GOP elite are the same ones that cost us the House and Senate, their god is power, not the will of the people. The nation is lost as long as these people from BOTH parties are in power.
No rebellion is consent.
The GOPE is counting on you not to.
They intend to keep you bending over for their own socialists as our nominee into perpetuity - because it works so long as you cooperarte.
Chances are that under Obama more will be stopped dead by a Republican congress than with Romney, who will use the socialist Republican majority to pass the same crap, but using milder terms.
I mean look at Boehner. He can’t get on board with contempt charges against Holder, for crying out loud.
Why? Because Romney hasn’t given the green light to do so yet. After all, Romney is running a campaign of milk and toast in order to appeal to the Marxist wealthy who wish to crush Obama for cramping their fiscal-financial style.
Go for it, Ed, they are counting on you.
All is not as it appears. REBELLION IS TOO DAMN HARD AND SCARY.
I stand by what I said. The things the executive can do is absolutely frightening, and can go around congress. The conversation between Glenn Beck and Michele Bachmann posted here yesterday is such an example. No Obama No way. I will vote for Romney.
Oh, would you care to list all the successes we have had in stopping anything he wanted to do? What do you call some one that has unlimited power?
The man/child pantload has really fired me up. They have blown it again. Now I WANT my name on a contributors list. I might have passed on giving in the past, given finances (Obamaconomy, price of gasoline) but I’ll find a way... Anybody got the address on where to send my dollars? Let’s get the money rolling in to Romney.
At least Nixon had integrity to step down when caught.
We cannot be rid of this vile, arrogant, reckless regime soon enough...
C'mon November, 2012!
.. and Wal-Mart customers are slimed as causing American workers to become poor.
That's what the at least a hundred demonstrators throughout the Wal-Mart parking lot shouted at us Wal-Mart shoppers.
I stared at the guy holding a megaphone who then came at me shouting that I was to blame for the "race to the bottom." I waited til he got in my face and I shouted back that I was an American and no one was going to tell me where I could shop.
He returned to his "post" after about a minute of that face-to-face still accusing me of wanting American workers to be poor. That's sooooo old and I simply gave a thumps up to the idea.
I had had similar "discussions" at a local Grocery Outlet store where customers were harassed by union personnel -- some of whom told me that that were actually hired by a union to picket the store, not members of a union.
Are these part of Obama Campaign 2012 and are the actions to be covered by Obama media as worker-oppressor disputes? I think so.
Gangster government; it’s not just a pejorative anymore.
OK - But in the end Nixon did the right thing. Chicago Thug, and Crack-Peanuts, have no clue about such matters.
The conservative politicians who might have been able to beat Obama sat out the 2012 campaign. The convention is not going to pick one of them after the other candidates slugged it out in the primaries.
Romney has a bad record on some issues but he doesn't hate America and he doesn't hate the capitalist system. Obama is wrong on all the issues and he hates America--and melanin-deficient Americans. I'll take a faux conservative who can sometimes be forced to do the right thing over a left-wing ideologue who will always do the wrong thing.
Wishful thinking on your part. The President has implemented directives that have the effect of law, he has Agencies issuing directives daily to the tune of 10's of thousands of new rules, all having the effect of law.
There is not one person in this country that can not be found to have violated some law or regulation, many of which can get you arrested and held indefinitely.
Now ask yourself has John Boehner defunded any of these police state organizations? Who would believe that the IRS needs weaponized shotguns in the thousands? Who thinks it is a good idea for Cities to be using weaponized drones over our cities? Who thinks it is a good idea the president to have an internet kill switch, add to that, the house just gave him the keys to all your information? Who would have thought that the President would order the Catholic Church to provide ultimately, abortions?
We had a Coup d'état and no one noticed.
/ “ No Obama No way. I will vote for Romney.” /
I know. Fear sells. AND, it works nearly everytime it’s tried!
I wouldn’t sleep well betraying the sacrifices of the Greatest Generation mnyself.
American have EARNED their own demise by sleeping through evil and endlessly cooperating with it out of convenience.
This has brought on more and worse. We now cooperate out of fear.
We truly no longer deserve what others fought and died for.
I am very glad they are not here to see this day, actually.
The Kenyan dog eater continues to fall to new nadirs in disgusting and un-American behavior.
The WSJ should have raised cain when they saw the IRS go after the Tea Party or when DHS named Americans chosen by their political incorrectness as the domestic terrorists. That way they would have some meat to stand on as they complain about their limo-liberal pals being persecuted by the racist commie in the White Hut.
Personally, I do not want Obama removed from the White House by the election process..... I WANT HIM ARRESTED, tried, convicted and sent to prison for the rest of his damn life.
Dream.... it’s only a dream....
Yep and this is what we have to look forward to for the next four years if Obama is not defeated.
“Obama is not the second coming of Jimmy Carter. He is the second coming of Ricard Nixon.”
No...he is the second coming of Joseph Stalin.
We shall see.
