What have we here?
Republicans pounced on a report Monday that said top White House adviser David Plouffe took a $100,000 speaking fee from an Iran-tied firm whose technology may have been used to track dissidents, claiming Plouffe’s involvement could represent a “loophole” in sanctions against the regime.
At least this could help explain Obama’s hands-off policy toward Iran, when it looked like the terrorist mullahs might finally be overthrown — which stood in stark contrast to his policy of dislodging our ally Mubarak from Egypt so that he might be replaced with the sinister Muslim Brotherhood. It should also help lay to rest the notion that sanctions are anything other than a farce, now that we know even Obama’s inner circle does business with Iran.
Don’t be too hard on Ploof I mean Pluff I mean Plouffe. At least he isn’t Iranian by birth, like Obama’s top teleprompter programmer Valerie Jarrett. At least he doesn’t have three members of his immediate family in the Muslim Brotherhood, like Secretary of State Shrillary’s right-hand girl Huma Abedin.
