Republicans busily raising fortunes for SuperPacs now calling President Obama a hypocrite for joining the game are as hypocritical as might be.
Obama was right to bash the Republican-dominated Supreme Court for opening this spigot, but failing to respond in kind to the half billion dollars or more that GOP SuperPacs plan to spend against him would be political malpractice.
Of course, the Obama team is making a calculation that, sadly, voters don’t pay attention to this stuff. The fact that Romney’s SuperPac raised $25 million from only 90 contributors ought to be a flash point for the public to finally realize that our Democracy has officially been incorporated.
Unfortunately, Obama’s decision to green light similar giving for his side prevents him from raising a red flag against this despicable practice.
