Skip to comments.Obama's Marc Anthony Ad is Another Embarrassment for the Campaign

COMMENTARY | Yet another celebrity advertisement for President Barack Obama was unveiled earlier this week.
While Marc Anthony may be an attractive and accomplished singer, he likely does not have much in common with the typical Latino voter. Anthony's impassioned plea that Obama needs another term to continue "making progress" and that he "has our backs" during the video clip republished on The Blaze neglects to mention that Anthony himself has proven he cares little about the nation's debt.
According to document excerpts published by the Washington Free Beacon, Anthony is a "tax-dodger" who owed more than $3 million back taxes.
Obama staffers should check into the backgrounds of the celebrities they use in campaign commercials. Although Anthony negotiated a settlement with the government on his back taxes in 2010, it reflects poorly on Obama's character that he would befriend the scofflaw singer.
Financial statistics republished by the Washington Free Beacon note that Anthony made more than $15 million during a five-year period. Apparently Obama's goal of forcing wealthy Americans to pay their fair share does not apply to his pals.

Even Yahoo is turning on him? Wow!
Not only would I be concerned were Zer0 to be following me, the whole concept of "Leading from Behind" is gay.
Antony is a tax cheat? That puts him in line to be the next secretary of the treasury.
Remind me again, how many of his friends has he thrown under the bus?
The media smells blood in the water. I think they may actually feel guilty for being in the tank for him last time. Also, I sense that many who supported him are very disappointed in him, I think they are PO'd that he squandered his time in office with a dem majority in both houses.
This is Elizabeth Warren’s favorite singer!

Maybe homie should take the horns off his head before he opens his big mouth. What a pendejo.
How many millions of Latino babies have been killed because of the odumbi demonrat love of abortion?
Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) calls it a “preference cascade”.
Kind of like what happens when the kid blurts out that the Emperor is wearing no clothes.
Up to that point lots of folks are already thinking it, but they each think they are alone in thinking it, and so they don’t say anything for fear of being ostracized.
Once people know that others agree, they pile on in a hurry. They certainly don’t want to be last to arrive at the new popular position.
This is what is happening now with respect to Obama.
In a Steve Buscemi sort of way. When I saw a picture of Marc standing next to his former Wife I was wondering where she met the Crack Addict.
BO is Entertainer in Chief. Laws don’t matter to him.
No they don't. They would need a conscience for that to happen. They will want to hedge their bets somewhat as events develop, just to keep up a facade of credibility. Nobody wants to be the last bear dancing when the music stops.
Marc Anthony was born in New York and has an estimated net worth of $40 million dollars. A singer-songwriter, musician, actor, and producer,
Marc Anthony to perform at Obama fundraiser
Miami Beach residents Abigail and F.J. Pollack are hosting a fundraising dinner for President Barack Obamas “Victory Fund” at their home on June 26. Providing the entertainment is none other than Marc Anthony. A mere $40,000 or more gets you in. For more information, email MHoffman@BarackObama.com.
The (now ex) husband of superstar Jennifer Lopez has been slapped with demands for $1.8 million in unpaid taxes, Radar Online has exclusively learned, the e-zine says.
Still, this is just a fraction of the amount Marc owes to the IRS, since the total debt is over $3 million.
Whats more, its the second straight year that New York authorities have hit Marc Anthony with a million-dollar-plus lien on a slice of Long Island real estate that he owns, Radar writes.
The latest demand was filed on March 29, 2010 in Nassau County. Just three months earlier, a federal tax lien for $1.6 million was placed on the same property, Radar reports.
Even though the couple is worth more than $250 million, J.Lo was disgusted with the way Marc handled money and when he racked up $3.4 million in liens last year as first reported by RadarOnline.com she told pals: Im not bailing him out.
Re-electing @BarackObama=4 more yrs of progress for Latinos. That’s why I’m hosting him on June 26 in Miami. My video: ofa.bo/p59aQg
@MarcAnthony @BarackObama LMAO! What “progress” for Latinos? Record unemployment and record deportations + more broken promises for votes?
I loved how liberals complained how the Wisconsin Recall was bought because Republicans out-spent the Democrats and Unions. But say nothing about what Obama trying to do with all these fundraisers. They’re not charging $40,000 per plate because the shrimp is fresh.
