Hypocrisy, & Worse: After Decrying SuperPACs as "Threat to Our Democracy," Obama's Position "Evolves" And He Partners Up With David Brock's SuperPAC

Like the man* said: Lord, grant me hope, and grant me change, but don't grant them to me yet.

Obama’s new position on super PACs also comes with an additional liability: controversial fabulist David Brock. To help elevate the stature and punching heft of Priorities USA, founder and former White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton joined forces with American Bridge 21st Century, a super PAC and opposition research shop founded by Brock, who remains its treasurer today. In addition to defending his flip-flopping on super PACs, President Obama should call on Burton to repudiate Brock.

The scandalous founder and figurehead leader of Media Matter for America has made a living combatting “…Christian-influenced ideology.” Outcries against Brock’s hateful, anti-religious, anti-Semitic propaganda war and gutter politics have come from all sides. The Simon Wiesenthal Center was concerned, the anti-Defamation League and American Jewish Committee were also alarmed, liberal Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz promised to campaign against the president if he didn’t distance himself from Brock, and AIPAC spokesman, former Clinton administration official, and former Clinton/Gore spokesman Josh Block has also piled on from the left. Even bombastic MSNBC host Ed Schultz has openly shunned Brock’s outrageous below-the-belt brand of politics.
