State of the Union

I wasn't going to blog the SOTU, but I found this line from Obama to be quite rich [emphasis added]: "Well I don't think American elections should be bankrolled... by foreign entities." The irony is that Obama's 2008 presidential campaign was bankrolled by foreign entities. His campaign disabled the address verification system (AVS) on his donation website. AVS is used to verify a card holder's address. By disabling it, the Obama campaign enabled people the world over to make donations that would go unscrutinized as long as they were under $250.

Earlier this week, Pamela Geller of Big Government called for an audit of Obama's campaign finances. I second the motion.
