White House’s daily emails use tax dollars to boost Obama’s image, stretch bounds of ‘franking’

August 13, 2013

President Obama often rails against “perpetual campaigns” in politics, but the White House is increasingly waging a partisan-edged campaign funded by taxpayers through a flood of daily emails to the public in support of his agenda.

Whether the topic is gun control or immigration reform, the White House is using taxpayer dollars for staff and equipment to promote Mr. Obama’s image and frequently to target his opponents in Congress for scorn through a series of e-newsletters.

“The president thinks Washington has largely taken its eye off the ball on the most important issue facing the country,” senior presidential adviser Dan Pfeiffer wrote in one such email last month. “Instead of talking about how to help the middle class, too many in Congress are trying to score political points, refight old battles, and trump up phony scandals.”

Those irresponsible people in Congress are Republicans, of course, and the “phony” scandals involve the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups and the House’s probe of the lethal terrorist attack at the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya.

In April, after gun control legislation failed to pass in the Senate, the White House sent supporters a mass email titled “Shameful.”

    Now doesn’t this bet all. He has got to use our money to boost HIS EGO. What the nerve. He is a lame duck who thought he could get away with all his underhanded schemes. That we wouldn’t notice. It is only a matter of time when someone is going to throw him under his own BUS. How many laws has he broken already, PLENTY. IMPEACHMENT IS COM’IN DOWN THE ROAD. CAN’T WAIT.!!!!

    All I will say is this: If all presidents of the past had been any better than Mr. Obama, Mr. Obama most certainly would not now sit in the Oval Office. Especially the one that presided Mr. Obama. And I am writing as a staunch conservative Christian Republican and also I wish to mention that I am an immigrant going on 58 years at the time when Americans still respected their own laws and were careful in keeping the borders secure. America the land of laws and orders now is the land where both parties are braking laws. Yes, otherwise another nation of millions of illegals would not be the case now, making the Founding Fathers shaking in their graves.

    The traitor in the white house is wasting billion$ and billion$ of our tax dollars and Congress isn’t lifting a finger. This is a pittance to what he is doing to our country, and not even worth bothering about.

    There are so many scandals and corruption in this white house that it make Nixon and others look like saints by comparison. Even J. Edgar Hoover with all his “Files” on people pale by comparison.
