On Fox News yesterday, conservative windbag Charles Krauthammer said Obama is making “an appeal to xenophobic fear” and guilty of McCarthy-esque baseless attacks.
It’s the stock and trade of conservative ideologues to take what they are being accused of, and turning those same accusations against liberals, or in this case, Obama. By that I mean xenophobia and McCarthyism.
Despite all of the evidence that the Chamber is using foreign money to influence this year’s election, Krauthammer assures Fox News viewers that there’s not a “shred of evidence” the Chamber is using foreign money to influence this year’s elections.
This is one of those stories where the word “fungible” comes into play. The Chamber claims that all of their foreign money they get is totally separate from their domestic money, they have a process, we can’t know what that is, but just trust them. Remember that the word is fungible.
