  •  It take a truly twisted mind-set... (0+ / 0-)

    ... to say unions don't represent "the little guy." And the GOP does? Ha-ha-ha-ha! That's funny stuff.

    When the GOP message says that, unions "have become MORE powerful than corporations under the current administration," it lies. For instance, in Wisconsin, businesses gave 12 dollars in campaign donations to both parties for every dollar given by unions. And 80 percent of contributions to the state's GOP candidates came from businesses. But let's give them tax breaks while reining in the "more powerful" unions? Stupid, unless you're an elitest, business-friendly conservative who hates the little guy.

    •  The GOP Trust is associated with Newsmax: (0+ / 0-)
      Despite its name, the National Republican Trust has no formal connection to the Republican Party. It is an independent group with ties to the conservative Web site Newsmax. It sprang into being barely a month ago and has reported spending more than $900,000 to attack Obama through e-mail messages and, now, TV ads.
