President Obamas reelection campaign press secretary, Ben LaBolt rebuffed criticism that the campaigns acceptance of donations from Bain Capital employees is hypocritical. Bain has been castigated by Obama for preying upon vulnerable businesses and looting them for selfish gain. Bain is the firm that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney worked for before he became governor of Massachusetts.
Those who dont understand the Presidents thinking imagine that he is inconsistently benefiting from the ill-gotten gains of those engaged in reprehensible conduct, LaBolt said. In reality, he is recovering this money, purifying it, and putting it to use is his crusade to transform America from a culture of greed into one of collective welfare and universal brotherhood/sisterhood for all humankind.
LaBolt characterized the campaigns receipt of donations from repentant capitalists as akin to the Catholic Churchs receipt of donations from mafia gangsters. The ways in which the donors may have obtained the money might be depraved, but the uses to which the donations are put are considered laudable, LaBolt insisted. The Church claims it is saving souls. We are in a battle to save this country from the forces of darkness.
In related news, Obamas reelection campaign received the endorsement of Larry Flynt, the owner of the pornographic magazine Hustler and associated website. From my perspective, President Obama has over-performed, Flynt said. Many of those he has liberated from the drudgery of employment now have more time to enjoy our products. Our revenues have seen a boost over the past three years. How could I not support the man who has been so good to us.

Semi my arse. lol
Keep up the good work. You should be on radio.
I didn't bite this time, John. The Obama campaign would have used jihad or glorious people's revolution instead of crusade.
