Pot? Kettle. Kettle? Pot.

I really couldn't believe this when  I heard it.  Obama, speaking at a recent fundraiser:
Right now all around this country there are groups with harmless-sounding names like Americans for Prosperity, who are running millions of dollars of ads against Democratic candidates all across the country. And they don’t have to say who exactly the Americans for Prosperity are. You don’t know if it’s a foreign-controlled corporation. You don’t know if it’s a big oil company, or a big bank. You don’t know if it’s a insurance company that wants to see some of the provisions in health reform repealed because it’s good for their bottom line, even if it’s not good for the American people.
[insert sound of needle scraping across record]


Well you're the President of the United States.  Why don't YOU know?  Or do you, but you would prefer to cast aspersions by suggesting who it "might" be?  Ah, the latter I see.   The old class warfare and smoke and mirrors.   See it doesn't matter if it is true.  Just repeatedly insinuate.  The press'll cover for ya.

Well right now there are groups out there with harmless sounding names like the Center for American Progress and MoveOn.Org ... running millions of dollars of ads against Republican candidates all across the country.  And they don't have to say who exactly the Center for American Progress is.  You don't know if it's some foreign-controlled political interest group.   Could be some Greek guy who believes "The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States." .   Might be some Workers Party of the World or something.  Who knows?   Could be TIDES.  Or the APOLLO Alliance.  Or the OSI. 

But don't worry.  Nothing to see there.  Hmmm-mmmm.  Those aren't the droids you're looking for we want you to look at.
