Laura Ingraham has been talking regularly about Barack Obama’s campaigning on the public dime. Toby Harnden covers the story in the Daily Mail under the headline “Is the taxpayer funding Obama’s reelection campaign?” The answer is clearly yes, and it’s an extremely interesting story. Jake Tapper of ABC News and Mark Knoller of CBS News asked a few pointed questions on the subject last week, and Jay Carney shed his characteristic light in response.
It may be legal, but it is disgusting, at least to the extent Obama has taken it. Funny you have to go to the British press to pick up on it.
