Obama: "Super PAC's for me, but not for thee".
Ever since the SCOTUS decision on Citizens United back in 2010, President Obama has been railing against the Super-PAC's the landmark ruling allowed, calling them a "threat to democracy".
Apparently he's had a change of heart and decided that since he needs Super-PAC's to campaign on his behalf, they're actually OK. Yesterday he asked a room full of rich donors to give their money to his own Super-PAC called Priorities-USA. Obviously the media will let him have it both ways and won't even ask a question about the glaring hypocrisy. Administration officials are excusing it by saying that the President should be able to play by the same rules as everybody else, but principles are principles and Obama clearly has none.
