Democrats Go to Canada. It’s a Fundraising Excursion

Rand Paul’s opponent, Jack Conway, has ventured outside the United States to raise cash from trial lawyers.Conway headed north, to Canada, for a meeting of trial lawyers from whom he wanted cash.The trial lawyers ponied up. Conway’s campaign said it welcomes support from across the country, which Canada is not.But it wasn’t just Conway. The mob banker from Illinois, Giannoulias, went too and money was raised for these Democrats, most of whom were present:Michael Bennett running Colorado
Dick Blumenthal running in Connecticut
Robin Carnahan running in Missouri
Roxanne Conlin running in Iowa
Chris Coons running in Delaware
Brad Ellsworth running in Indiana
Lee Fisher running in Ohio
Paul Hodes running in New Hampshire
Charlie Melancon running in Louisiana
Elaine Marshall running in North Carolina

And, of course, Harry Reid.Raising money, spending money, and supporting people in the United States is, like with Barack Obama, beneath them. They’d rather hang out with Canadians to raise money from trial lawyers than their own fellow Americans.This is pitiful. We’ve gone from Buddhist temples to actually leaving the United States to raise money for Democrats. And one of them acts like it’s just another part of the country. Um . . . no.
