Obama Campaigning From White House?

June 28, 2011

Is Barack Obama campaigning for office from the office? According to this video posted on Real Clear Politics, it certainly seems so.

So what’s the big deal? FEC campaign finance laws prohibit politicians from filming, promoting or campaigning on government grounds i.e. the White House. While the Obama camp may try to deny any wrongdoing, a screenshot from the President’s weekly address shows an identical lamp to that in the campaign video. Coincidence? Similar taste in lamps?

I’m not sure why everyone is up in arms. Obama hasn’t stopped campaigning since entering the White House. Is anyone really surprised this is happening?

Can someone explain why the MSM is not reporting the FEC violation? Would the response be the same if Bush engaged in such behavior?
