Mark Zuckerberg's Political Group Is Trashing Obama And Obamacare And Promoting Wildlife Oil Drillin



FWD.us is funding ads that attack President Obama and Obamacare and promote the Keystone oil pipeline and drilling in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge.

For example, here's an ad produced by a FWD.us subsidiary called "Americans For A Conservative Direction." The ad supports Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (South Carolina) and praises him for supporting the Keystone Pipeline, trashing Obama and Obamacare, and dissing our current government as "Chicago-style politics" (another shot at Obama). The ad does not mention immigration reform.

FWD.us funds another subsidiary that supports Democrats "Council For American Side Of The Aisle." This subsidiary produced an ad celebrating Alaska Senator Mark Begich for advocating drilling in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge, a sanctuary that many environmentalists say should be left untouched. This ad also does not mention immigration

ThinkProgress concludes that what FWD.us is trying to do with these ads is buy support for immigration reform by greasing senators on both sides of the aisle. To get the support of these senators, FWD.us is funding the promotion of causes and people that Mark Zuckerberg, John Doerr, and many of its other backers may find appalling.

1. I hope Lindsey runs for President in 2016 and gets the nomination

 

He's such a fanatical moron that it will guarantee you Dems a win and maybe this time your candidate will be distinguishable from theirs. Besides, it will make the election highly entertaining if nothing else.

2. Damn his hide! How could he? He's suppose to be smart!

Unfortunately, smart people often make dumb decisions. George Bush isn't an example. He's just plain dumb!
