The Conservative Campaign Committee says on its "About" page that it is "a traditional Political Action Committee that works with grassroots conservatives across the country to make our movement more effective, hold Barack Obama and the liberals in Washington accountable and support important campaigns and outstanding conservative candidates for federal office." CCC clearly states that its ads and other efforts are "not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee."
Yet MSNBC's Ed Schultz has taken to Twitter to shriek (HT Twitchy) that "Ted Cruz is targeting Thanksgiving" because CCC is running TV ads during Thanksgiving thanking the Texas senator for "doing everything he could to stop Obamacare before it hurt the American people." Meanwhile, Organizing for Action, whose only mission is to promote the President's agenda and whose charter member list came over from Obama's 2012 campaign, is directly targeting Americans' Thanksgiving gatherings by coaching its members on how to talk up the wonders of Obamacare. Obama himself spoke directly to members to encourage them "to talk about the ACA at holiday parties."
So an outside organization thanks Cruz, but Cruz himself is doing the targeting. OFA and Obama want to disrupt Thanksgiving gatherings with Obamacare talking points, but that's not a problem.
If it weren't for double standards, Schultz would have no standards.
Here's the "Thank Cruz" ad:
Here's the creepy Obamacare "have the talk" video (warning: It's awful on every conceivable level):
The best favor OFA could do for America would be to run their terrible video during Thanksgiving Day football games.
