This Is “Citizens United”

I’m in Boulder, CO. I turned on the news at 2300, and saw no less than six ads from the Karl Rove Crossroads GPS. Theoretically, these ads are not supporting a candidate (right…). The ads attack President Obama for the 8+% unemployment rate, the increased debt, etc.

Now, none of these ads, like all Republican attacks, talks at all about the fact that the entire fracked up economy was created and made worse by the Republicans.

But these ads are an example of the carpet-bombing negative ad campaigns that are a result of the SCOTUS “Citizens United” decision. It was a bad decision, and is bad for the country.
