Forget about New Hampshire for a minute. A group of lawyers for the Republican Party just did something very revealing in Washington:

They filed a brief asking a federal court to overturn the century-old law banning corporations from donating to federal political campaigns. And you have to hear their exact words on why:

"It artificially disadvantages political party and candidate committees by forcing them to rely on aggregating small-dollar donations from individuals."

Translation: The fact that corporations can't literally buy the Republican Party and its candidates is preventing them from reaping the full benefit of completely selling out.

So not only are the Republican Party and their presidential candidates focusing their fundraising efforts on Washington lobbyists and special-interest PACs and playing the same old money-for-influence game, they are actually saying that ordinary people giving whatever they can afford discriminates against them as a party.


Corporations are already financing hundreds of millions of dollars in so-called "super PACs" now Republicans want to sell the entire political process to the highest bidder.

Mitt Romney attacks Obama as too cozy with Europe?. Try in time of War, Mitt Romney was too cozy with Europe, "France"!.

What about, "in time of war", Mitt Romney was also too cozy with Europe, in this case, "France"?.

My truthful views.

At least Romney doesn't bow down to the King of Saudi Arabia like Obama did on April 02, 2009.
