OBAMA TOOK MONEY FROM FOUNDATION BASED ON WEALTH OF RIGHTWING CROOK

Sam Smith, Progressive Review - If we're going to play this game, let's play it right. Far more important than who sat on the board of a Chicago education group with Obama is where the money came from. Much originated with a foundation built on the wealth of Moe Annenberg, a major rightwing opponent of FDR and publisher of the Philadelphia Inquirer, who later pled guilty to tax evasion and was sentenced to three years.

The foundation was started by Moe's son Walter, who also established the Annenberg School of Communications in honor of his father. When the school was announced, a distinguished Philadelphian wrote the competing newspaper to wonder if the Philadelphia Bulletin was now planning to start an Al Capone Tax Institute.

Walter Annenberg was a right winger, ambassador to Britain, and the one who introduced Reagan to Margaret Thatcher, thereby giving Reagan brains he was lacking and helping to inspire the next three decades of American madness, which have led to the current fiscal disaster.

So, forget about Bill Ayers. Obama is clearly under the evil spell of rightwing Republicans named Annenberg.
