    D.N.C. Spokesmanís Former Group Didnít Disclose Donors Either

    Brad Woodhouse, spokesman for the Democratic National Committee, is the latest ally of President Obama to go after the dangers of undisclosed money in the political process. In a letter sent yesterday to editorial board members at news organizations across the country, Mr. Woodhouse excoriated the collection and use of the money in the current elections. ďAnonymous special interests and unnamed corporations are pouring tens of millions of dollars into electoral politics this fall, money that has the potential to tip the scales in close races across the country,Ē Mr. Woodhouse wrote in the letter. He lamented the ďpernicious effects of secret, special interest money.Ē

    But just a couple of years back, Mr. Woodhouse was the president of a political organization that took donations without disclosing the identities of the donors. Mr. Woodhouse was president of Americans United for Change, a liberal group that says its mission has been to challenge ďthe far-right conservative voices and ideas that for too long have been mistaken for mainstream American values.Ē

    Once again, nothing about the current political situation is new. The same people are just doing the same things they always do.

    It's their last straw in an election that isn't about Cult, Text Messages, or one of their trick wabbits. Not even the press can dent the nationwide express train ripping through the nation... to get Government Off Our Backs.

    There is nothing like a sober, awakened, and motivated electorate to scare the bejeezuz out of the left. Leftists are running out of straws, and they've exhausted their supply of wabbits. No worries my leftist buddies, the beginning of the end of our national nightmare will soon be reality.

    Not exactly, from your link:

    Mr. Woodhouse said the comparison was unfair. He said Americans United for Change did not run the same kind of political advertising that Crossroads GPS and the other conservative groups were financing.

    ďWe didnít do any advertising that mentioned or attacked candidates like the kind Karl Rove is running during the election ó so we didnít do the type of ads that we are highlighting here,Ē Mr. Woodhouse said Friday.

    In re Collegio vs. Woodhouse - Ben Smith - POLITICO.com



    A commercial aired by Woodhouse's group. Yea, that definitely didn't mention or attack anyone.

    Were they baseless lies, Right?

    Please note what I quoted above:

    I am assuming Mr. Woodhouse meant the ads were in fact based upon the truth.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Ah, so if the ads that the CoC is running are not factually inaccurate, you don't have any problem with them? You're not opposed to groups refusing to disclose their donors, you just don't like it when they don't tell the truth? Seems plausible.

    If you're that intent on finding a way to justify what this guy said/did rather than simply admitting "yea, it sounds like both sides play politics," then I can add this to the long list of things that it's not worth discussing with you.

    My point boils down to this. If a corporation or union wants to run ads for or against a candidate, the public has the right to know who paying for the ads. I believe in sunlight whether it's on the left or right. If XYZ corporation runs an ad against pbrauer, then the XYZ Corp. needs to take responsibility for it. I think we know XYZ doesn't want to be known as the sponsor because they might lose business from the public.

    Tell me was Justice Alito correct during the SOTU message?

    And the Chamber puts its name on the ads, just like everyone else (including Woodhouse's group). Glad we could clear that up.

    I believe in sunlight whether it's on the left or right.
    So why are you attacking the Chamber and defending Woodhouse's group? You're just another partisan, denouncing those who you disagree with and defending those who you support.

    Tell me was Justice Alito correct during the SOTU message?
    Yes, he was absolutely correct.

    I do not recall many ads stating they were from a union. Doesn't this sound like a 21st century version of McCarthyism. These type of political attacks should give pause to any true liberal versus.

    Liberalism sounds a lot different than the liberalism I grew uo with.
