MoveOn.org is moving in Barack Obama’s direction.
The ultraliberal advocacy group, which has spent much of Obama’s presidency sniping at him, just launched an ad campaign “praising the president’s proposal to impose higher taxes on the wealthy,” according to ABC News’s The Note.
That would be the “Buffet Rule,” named after billionaire investor Warren Buffet, whose recent New York Times op-ed called for tax hikes on the super-rich, since he purportedly pays a lower percentage on his taxable income than his secretary does on hers.
Thus, MoveOn’s 30-second TV spot titled “Buffet’s Secretary.” (Warning: No actual secretary of Warren Buffet was used in this commercial.)
The hardworking staff is very much looking forward to a MoveOn ad sequel titled “Buffet’s Accountant.” That will likely be a 60-second spot.
