We'll pair of -- conservative fund raisers are now calling out President Obama over what they say is an irresponsible and misleading message.
Charles and David Coke are firing back at the president Oprah fund raising letter that specifically attacks that.
The letter went out to supporters of President Obama on Friday it's from his campaign manager Jim Messina.
-- -- -- Those -- the same -- Brothers whose business model is to make millions by jacking up prices at the pump.
And to a bank -- Tea Party extremism and committed 200 million to try to destroy President Obama before Election Day.
Now some are questioning the president's decision to target private citizens who are opposed to his reelection.
Joining -- now Laura Ingraham.
Radio talk show host and Fox News contributor.
Laura has -- that Coke Brothers have taken it for awhile now since the 2010 elections at least that the president and his -- have been going after them.
And now they're they're not taken -- more they had their lawyer write a letter a couple weeks ago now they personally are writing to the president saying.
At Ted Olson who wrote the letter on the behalf of the Coke Brothers.
A few weeks ago pointed out that look we used to talk about the enemy list you don't have an enemy's list how.
How disturbing that isn't it and it represented -- democracy that the executive branch would seek.
On its own -- eminence on Wednesday to just pick out one or two individuals and spread untruths false -- about them.
In an attempt to do one thing -- to shift blame on an issue like gas prices that's going to be a big one in November.
And also perhaps to.
Discourage others from getting involved in the political debate now.
I would imagine if at the Coke Brothers became suddenly supportive of the president's agenda we wouldn't see those types of Jim Messina.
They they write the following -- Jim -- they -- the implication in this sort of attack is obvious dare to criticize the president's policies.
And you will be singled out and personally maligned by the president.
And his campaign in an effort to chill free speech and squelch dissent they talk about how.
This is an abuse of the president's position.
A disservice to -- -- write it.
Is he not supposed to be the president of all the people that that was a great promise of the Obama administration coming and I'm gonna represent all of America -- you might not have supported -- but I'm your president.
That have to apply right have a robust exchange of ideas and and I'm sure the campaign has disagreements with where the Coke Brothers come out and -- just fine.
Why isn't that we can't have a debate about the issues about what our energy policy should be -- what our tax policy should be.
Why must -- go to this level of individual demonization.
From the highest levels of our government I mean this campaign ladder no doubt.
But this comes from a guy who's the chief and -- is a guy in charge of Obama's effort to get himself back in office.
This this should send a chill down the spines of everyone out there was watching fox now because if you dare to question.
You might not have the money of the Coke Brothers to defend yourself you might just had a reputation dollars a.
The microphone that they had right as they are -- -- but let me.
-- let's just go through it because it's not just this Jim Messina letter that he rotated to try to get President Obama supporters -- you know I think.
-- of the Coke Brothers.
Back in 2010 there were ads released in the lead up to the mid term elections are going after the Coke Brothers for their don't know the -- Halliburton remember it was Halliburton during the bush years but then -- -- -- what Henry -- got to subpoena them to tell congress on current role -- any.
They had in the keystone oil pipeline diet and -- did not know if they didn't know about it but then why are you looking at us and then and then Austan Goolsbee met don't president's economic out of my song -- -- A statement about their taxes that led to a crash congressional investigation and they there was a question about whether their taxes have been looked into and now that's -- -- -- a little pattern yeah.
The full force of the US government.
Will be brought down on you if you dare to question and a -- of a platform.
And if you if you've done well you have money.
Watch out that's the message here and what -- saying -- Remember what happened during the health care debate remember when there -- that concern that that the insurance companies are gonna try to stand up for themselves and the White House.
Was very very.
Not clear that we we -- gonna tolerate dissent on.
Building a case for Obama -- They shut down a real -- discussion about -- inside the White House and in some companies had we had to restate their financials after the outlaw was always -- that place and they -- Waxman again wanted to subpoena that have been coming for the average and justify why they were gonna rain.
They had to revise their financial net -- liberalism and it's in it's truest form was about a free exchange of ideas -- -- and if you're liberal traditionally you or someone who liked the debate.
But what we have now in Washington is we have number of people are empower -- and power.
They really don't -- -- today they don't wanna be questioned on what happened with all this Green Green money that went down the tubes they don't -- -- -- on just went went went into this health -- Mandate at HHS.
They want to demonize the opposition and divert attention so now it's not the Coke Brothers are now.
Later on will be about you know talk radio or you know it's -- -- to the public -- one -- -- because I don't -- -- of business of -- forming a page now to take a few blows but.
If your private citizen maybe it's different -- however does -- switch over to another round when you are.
As big -- donor.
And have as much influence as guys like the Coke Brothers half highest -- -- and spent a million bucks on Obama's campaign I guess would it be appropriate and for Republican administration investigate his dealings with I mean it's all ridiculous.
It wasn't doing something illegal.
And let's -- -- real reason legitimate reason outside the fact that they disagree with there -- -- political position.
I find this to be an attempt to shut down legitimate inquiry.
Debate and robust discussion and if you're a Democrat or liberal watching fox we love the fact that you're watching that.
The idea actually -- them to make the case of affirmative case for the president's agenda.
You know again I think about how how would be of issue were audio -- and President Bush you have an all New York Times First Amendment does is his you know big threatens our telethon on a pleasure is -- great to the and I thank --
