Barack Obama attempts to intimidate contributors to Mitt Romney's campaign.
Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.Click here to read the rest of this worrying article. The President and his minions have resorted to the worst form of political extortion and fear mongering. This is the behavior of a street gang leader or thugocracy.
Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for "betting against America," and accuses you of having a "less-than-reputable" record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.
Also my thanks to the Wall Street Journal and a courageous Kimberly Strassel for publishing this information in the face of a vengeful administration.
