Prez says Americans for Prosperity are not American.

Over at Fox they reported....
Citing the recent Supreme Court decision that loosened campaign finance rules, he claimed “groups with harmless-sounding names like Americans for Prosperity” could run ads against Democratic candidates with impunity. The concern is that an organization like Americans for Prosperity could dump millions into an election to sway voters without the voters ever knowing who’s behind it all.
“And they don’t have to say who exactly the Americans for Prosperity are. You don’t know if it’s a foreign-controlled corporation. You don’t know if it’s a big oil company or a big bank. You don’t know if it’s a insurance company that wants to see some of the provisions in health reform repealed because it’s good for their bottom line, even if it’s not good for the American people,” Obama said. “A Supreme Court decision allowed this to happen. And we tried to fix it, just by saying disclose what’s going on, and making sure that foreign companies can’t influence our elections.”

Well Mr. President, come on down to the Defending the American Dream Summit in DC at the end of the month and find out. You will see the members are a cross section of Americans. People who are interested in the economy. People who don't want to waste millions on the crap that went into the "stimulus"
