Theyre baaaaaaack. Barack Obamas election-year goon squad kicked into high gear this week by kicking the presidents fiercest opponents in the teeth and targeting their pocketbooks. Returning to bully business as usual, the Obama campaign launched a brazen salvo against two prominent conservative critics and their legions of private citizen donors.
Lets be clear (to use Obamas favorite phrase): This is not just the politics of personal destruction. Its a vendetta of campaign finance destruction. Under the guise of disclosure, Team Obama is exploiting the power of high government office to intimidate lawful, peaceful contributors who support limited-government causes.
In a scathing fundraising e-mail appeal, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina name-checked wealthy free-market philanthropists Charles and David Koch along with a growing movement of grassroots conservatives who have freely, voluntarily and legally given money to the Koch-founded nonprofit activist group Americans for Prosperity and its sister foundation. As a speaker at several AFP events over the past three years, Ive met thousands of like-minded, hardworking Americans who support their work at the local, state and federal levels.
The Koches sins are to 1. follow tax law and protect the identities of donors to their charitable organizations, and 2. exercise their free speech by funding advocacy ads informing the public about the Obama administrations jobs toll destruction and failed green energy investments. (Their most recent TV spot zeroed in on the taxpayer-funded Solyndra bankruptcy.)

How much longer before we can say goodbye to this Loser-In-Chief?
