Thread: Tough or dirty politics?

    Tough or dirty politics?

    [QUOTE]Nearly 10,000 of the biggest donors to Republican candidates and causes across the country will probably receive a foreboding “warning” letter in the mail next week.

    The letter is an opening shot across the bow from an unusual new outside political group on the left that is poised to engage in hardball tactics to prevent similar groups on the right from getting off the ground this fall.

    Led by Tom Matzzie, a liberal political operative who has been involved with some prominent left-wing efforts in recent years, the newly formed nonprofit group, Accountable America, is planning to confront donors to conservative groups, hoping to create a chilling effect that will dry up contributions.

    “We want to stop the Swift Boating before it gets off the ground,” said Mr. Matzzie, who described his effort as “going for the jugular.”

    The warning letter is intended as a first step, alerting donors who might be considering giving to right-wing groups to a variety of potential dangers, including legal trouble, public exposure and watchdog groups digging through their lives.

    The group is also hoping to be able to respond if an outside conservative group broadcasts a television advertisement attacking Senator Barack Obama, or another Democratic candidate, by running commercials exposing the donors behind the advertisements. [/QUOTE]

    See, the fundamental problem with this approach is that conservatives are openly conservative and have no problem at all standing up for what they believe in, while on the other side of the coin, liberals spend a tremendous part of their energies on obfuscating exactly what it is they stand for. So bring it on Mr. Matzzie -- apparently your key position in Moveon.org combined with the obscene amount of money poured into your cause by George Soros was not enough to get you over the hump.

    And the "tolerance" of the left continues unabated...

    Conservatives hid for years the fact that they own and operate their own "news" network --what are you talking about?
