Carl Rove on Chamber of Commerce Flap: Obama working from 'Enemies List'

Carl Rove responds to Obama and the DNC's latest attack ad against he and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Rove's response, "The White House was unable to backup its charge that the United States Chamber of Commerce was spending foreign money on political activities. This is a desparate political ploy by the White House to distract attention away from a failed economic policy from a jobless recovery, from terrible economic news last week, and from a failure of an Obama care proposal to gain popular support; and they're tossing out these baseless charges. The President of the United States accused the Chamber of Commerce and the Democratic National Committee in its new ad accuses Ed Gillespie and I of a criminal violation of our law by getting foreign money and spending it on a political campaign; and they have not one shred of evidence to back up that baseless lie. This is a desperate and I think disturbing trend by the President of the United States to tar his political advesaries with some kind of 'enemies list' with being unrestrained by any facts or evidence whatsoever."

As if to underline Rove's charge that the Obama administration is out to baselessly smear the Chamber of Commerce, Powerline covers the Democrats' campaign against the Chamber and David Axelrod's appearance on CBS in Desperate Times Demand Dispicable Conduct.
