Video: Obama’s Organizing for Access


Same old ACCESS politics….

You got the cash, you receive the access.

Who is Obama trying to fool?

A new video from American Crossroads, the nonprofit organization founded by Karl Rove, accuses the a rival group born from President Obama’s reelection campaign of “selling access to the president” in a new video fashioned like a late-night infomercial.

The ad plays off a comment by White House press secretary Jay Carney, who called Organizing for Action — the nonprofit group headed by former Obama campaign manager Jim Messina — “perfectly appropriate” in a briefing with reporters earlier this month.

“Any notion that there’s a price for meeting with the president is simply wrong,” Carney said, adding that “the bottom line here is that this is a separate organization, as we’ve noted, the existence of which is perfectly appropriate. And the White House will engage with it consistent with the way we engage with a whole host of other outside constituencies.”
