Gibbs: Don't Bother With Facts When Obama Attacks Chamber

Tuesday, 12 Oct 2010 02:37 PM

President Obama won’t retreat from his accusation that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which generally supports Republicans, may have received foreign donations to fund its political activity, says White House press secretary Robert Gibbs. That’s what Gibbs told reporters Tuesday, despite the fact that fact-checking website PolitiFact found no foreign donations being given to the Chamber, Politico reports.

Obama, Gibbs, GOP, Politifact, fundraising, foreignThe Politifact rebuttal “doesn’t bother me at all,” Gibbs said. "The president will continue to make this argument. We don't know where this money comes from."

And while Gibbs was at it, he took a swipe at Republican strategist Karl Rove, too, criticizing him for accusing Obama of having an enemies list.

“Swing and a miss, strike three,” Gibbs said. He then produced a blank piece of paper, calling it the list. “I’m releasing our enemies list,” he said. “Now can I see the donors list to American Crossroads?”
