Obama and his democrat thugs are making every effort to hamstring Republican fund raising efforts. The tools they are using for this purpose only add gasoline to the brightly burning fire of democrat hypocrisy. Obama has signaled that he once again will try to bypass Congress and out of thin air fabricate self-serving government rules to limit Republican fund raising.
The Obama administration is considering a number of measures to compel disclosure of the kind of anonymous campaign contributions that helped finance millions of dollars of attack ads against Democrats during the 2010 elections.
The White House last week began circulating a draft executive order that would require companies seeking government contracts to disclose contributions including those that otherwise would have been secret to groups that air political ads attacking or supporting candidates.
And here is the comedy gold:
The proposed order follows several actions by regulatory agencies that have a similar intent of making corporate and individual donations more transparent.
Democrat thugs, led by Chris Van Hollen, are joining in the effort to shut down contributions to Republicans.
WASHINGTON Unable to stanch the flow of corporate money to Republican causes, Democrats tried a new tack on Thursday by bringing a lawsuit against the Federal Election Commission to force the disclosure of tens of millions of dollars in secret donations.
The lawsuit seeks to close a major loophole that allows private companies and nonprofit groups to operate under a veil of anonymity in raising money for political work, said Representative Chris Van Hollen, a Maryland Democrat who brought the lawsuit along with lawyers for several liberal groups.
In another push for greater disclosure, President Obama is considering issuing an executive order that would require contractors with federal business to report their political donations. His goal is transparency and accountability, said the White House spokesman, Jay Carney.
The irony is that Barack Obama's 2008 Presidential campaign set the standard for anonymous sources.

The saddest part is that they can count on Republicans to be essentially complicit in their criminal behavior through their silence in the hope of keeping the MSM propaganda machine from targeting them.
Why? It isn't on the excerpt list.
Are you making money for them?
Using FR as an advertising platform perhaps?
I’m afraid I must object. To be a hypocrite, one must have a notion of virtue one fails to live up to. Democrats have no conception of virtue, and thus cannot be hypocrites. Rather, they are like the false prophets of old, who call evil “good” and good “evil”.
The Democratic Party has moved so far left from the 60’s that they should find a different name. There is nothing democratic about that party!
The Democratic Party has become the Neo Communist Party.
