(4 comments) This open letter asks the honorable governor to explain why he or anyone else should "respect the authority of the Supreme Court to make those decisions," like McCutcheon or Citizens United.

Obama's proposals are designed not to change Obama's program but solely to deflect demands for such change by winning the PR offensive, which turns--as do all Obama's similar deceptions--on Mencken 's famous gambling tip that "no one" has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people.
