Critics slam Obama campaign for targeting Romney donors ( video)
Frank VanderSloot Speaks Out on Being Targeted for Donating to a Romney Super PAC
Frank VanderSloot gave $1 million to a Romney Super PAC, but then found himself listed on an Obama campaign website accusing him of being among eight wealthy individuals with less than reputable records. The Wall Street Journal reports that people have now begun investigating VanderSloot, even digging into his divorce records.
VanderSloot, a multimillionaire who runs a wellness products company in Idaho, joined Your World to tell his story. He said, “When President Obama’s campaign came out and listed us as one of his eight on his enemies list … that’s when everything lit up. That’s when our lives changed.”
Among the attacks on VanderSloot are accusations that he is anti-gay. He said, “I have many gay friends, who had all kinds of questions about this … Those people that I know well weren’t affected by this, but for people who didn’t know me who are members of our business or customers and they were reading this, then we got a barrage of phone calls. People cancelling their customer membership with us.”
Wild Thing's comment......
Obama and hsi people and his entire administration and election people, every one of them are an enemy of our country IMO.
This kind of thing should outrage every person that has ever donated to a candidate on any level.

I read about this yesterday, as well.
It is interesting, but not surprising, to note that the Obama Campaign, and Obama himself appear to be, more intent on the attempted Character Assination of Mitt Romney, than making comparisons as to, where he stands on the issues.
Having observed Progressive/Democrat campaign strategies, at all levels, for some time, one would have to say that this is the pattern.
This may work in some constituencies, and in some years when things are on the upswing or going good. When the situation is as it is today, we find that the voter more interested in, what the Candidate is going to do to improve the situation.
Whether or not the candidate was a bully in high school, does not personally support the gay agenda, etc., etc., become irrelevant.
Mitt Romney and his campaign are to be commended for taking the high road and sticking to it.
Let's all hope it continues that way.
