A Billionaire Finances Ads Hitting Obama


www.nytimes.com

WASHINGTON — The conservative group running advertisements that highlight Senator Barack Obama’s association with the 1960s radical William Ayers is being financed by a Texas billionaire who has raised money for Senator John McCain and who also helped finance the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth campaign against Senator John Kerry in 2004.

The billionaire, Harold Simmons, donated nearly $2.9 million on Aug. 12 to the American Issues Project, the group running the advertisements, papers it has filed with the Federal Election Commission show.

In 2004, Mr. Simmons donated $2 million to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, whose advertisements against Mr. Kerry included one that, with allegations since discredited, impugned his military service as a Swift boat captain during the Vietnam War.

Is this a conspiracy, or politics as usual?

Seems like a billionaire can truly use their tax breaks and incentives for the common good of all!

Obama has a couple of Billionaires on his team too. Soros I'm sure, along with two folks you might have heard of before-Warren Buffet and Bill Gates the first and second richest men in America.
