Team Obama Should Apologize for Libeling Sheldon Adelson

This week, President Obama’s campaign issued a fundraising email attacking Sheldon Adelson. The email by David Axelrod, Obama’s campaign manager, says:

We know it’s not out of love for Mitt Romney, so why part with so much money? As President Clinton reminded us last week, sometimes the answer is as simple as arithmetic. So let’s do the math: According to a new report from the Center for American Progress Action Fund, Adelson could see up to $2 billion in savings under Mitt Romney’s tax plan versus the President’s plan.

“We don’t have Sheldon Adelson, and with all due respect, we don’t want him” — A quote from the email.  One of the largest taxpayers in America, an executive who employs tens of thousands of Americans, who controls a multi-billion dollar publicly traded company in which thousands of Americans invest — is told by the American President that he isn’t wanted? A private person who is one of the largest American philanthropists is attacked by the most powerful man in the world for opposing presidential policy and exercising his democratic rights. Shameful.

Sheldon Adelson is a great American patriot – who has created tens of thousands of jobs and wealth for so many worldwide as he has taken risks and succeeded as an entrepreneur. His wife is his partner in life and business, and they support so many traditional American causes — from free enterprise to American troops, he remembers his humble beginnings.

Sheldon Adelson is a great Jew – one of the richest Jews in the world, he is the rare high-profile Jew to stand up and say the truth and what needs to be said regardless of political correctness.  His foundation gives more than $200 million to Jewish causes annually, he has donated $100 million to Birthright Israel, $25 million to Yad Vashem, and so much more. He reminds American politicians and organizations of the tight bonds between the great nations of America and Israel.

Sheldon Adelson is a great philanthropist – The Dr. Miriam and Sheldon Adelson Medical Research Foundation is committed to a model of open and highly integrated collaboration among outstanding investigators who participate in goal-directed basic and clinical research to prevent, reduce or eliminate disabling and life-threatening illness. From melanoma to bowel disease, they work endlessly through groundbreaking and innovative collaborative research projects.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee apologized recently for libeling Adelson – and the Obama campaign should do the same. Sheldon Adelson is an American Jewish patriotic hero who should be celebrated for all he has done to make this world a better place, rather than being attacked by the President of the United States. In a great country like America, Sheldon Adelson epitomizes so much of what is great about this country – one who uses his wealth to make the world a better place.  It is un-American for Obama to attack Adelson.

Sheldon Adelson is an American hero who should be celebrated for all he does as a tremendous philanthropist, humanitarian and executive.  The world wants and needs Sheldon Adelson.

    Yes, the world does need him. Thank you Sheldon Adelson. You are a great American and a great Jew.

    I'm really sick of the Obama administration and the Democrats vilifying private citizens who speak out. Government office is NOT a license to libel and smear.

  • David

    Note that the democrats lionize a treacherous Jew named George Soros who gives millions to left wing causes. They praise Soros who kisses Obama's ass.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      The left loves any Jew who hates Israel far more than any other Israel-haters,

    • PAthena

      Is it innacurate to label George Soris as a Nazi-collaborator in Hungary in 1944 at the age of 14 who does not regret his deeds (so he said on 60 Minutes, I think)?

      • Lee Luckman

        Yes it was 60 min in an interveiw with Steve Croft (Oblabla's favorite interviewer).

    • Bright Knight

      Wrong, David…. Soros doesn't kiss Obama's ass… he is the puppet-master of the Failure-in-Chief

  • Mike

    Thank you Sheldon for helping and improving the lives of so many people. Wish we had more hero's like you.

  • lizaz

    This is the agenda of the current "administration"…..demonize anyone who doesn't bow to the East (WH)….and we will find a way to eradicate your kind of opinions across this country. Their agenda is "our way or no way"…..freedoms and liberties we have known for more than two hundred years are slowly disappearing or being diminished until we are the herd of sheep who are managed by the dog…….we need a CHANGE……we need a PRESIDENT!!!

  • dennis x

    Maybe a great jew , but not an amerikkan. Anderson has stated he was not proud to have served in the us army, that he 'd arther have been in the idf ( that didn't exist at the time) Isn't he under indicment in several countries? What a loser!

    • queenbee

      Adelson is a jerk; as all crooks are.

  • Ghostwriter

    dennis x,there are such things as American Jews. You're becoming as bad as Schlockmotion is.

  • Jim

    Sheldon is responsible for keeping the Republican party alive in Clark County and probably Nevada.
    He was almost alone in the Democrat occupied Las Vegas strip.
    Fortunately Steve Wynn seems to have become an ally

    They are both individuals and not corporate and can stand on their own two feet.
    Both came up from almost nothing and succeeded .

    Yes each built that gambling empire,

  • Jim_C

    No reason to vilify Adelson; after all, he's worked for his success and he's doing what he can legally do to look after his interests.


    Forget Adelson a moment. Say you are fortunate enough to run a profitable business with revenues in the millions–needn't be a huge operation, just successful–you may have enough resources available to buy a congressman–that is, you may actually have enough to literally decide your district's election, singlehandedly, through a variety of different funding tools, should you choose to use your money that way.

    Is the problem that you are so successful? No–God bless you for being a success and an economic engine!

    The problem is that you now legally have far, far, more pull than the average joe does when it comes to representation in government. I say "average joe," but the average joe could be a physician or fireman who saves lives, a teacher or coach who changes kids lives, someone who owns a deli, pharmacy, etc. In other words, someone who contributes to their community and society just as much as you do.

    THAT IS THE PROBLEM, MY FRIENDS. Tell me, where is the freedom in that?

  • Mr. Polly

    Sheldon Adelson is a Zionist Jew. Zionists can never be patriotic Americans, because their only real loyalty is to a foreign power, the State of Israel. Hence their unhesitating willingness to drag America into a potential World War III over Iran. They don't care what happens to America or Americans.

  • greatj

    Axelrod,Cutter,Burton,Wasserman Schultz,and the rest of the Obama and the Democratic parties team of propagandists and misinformation team are the reason this election is so full of hatred.I would bet that they give M.S.N.B.C.their orders to attack all Republicans and Conservatives.They will say and do anything to get Obama reelected.All of them are disgraceful.In the case of Adelson they cant stand that he is giving his support to a Republican and does not trust Obama to help Israel if they get attacked from Iran and other Arab States.

  • Dave R

    Having worked for Sheldon, I know his business practices and they aren't all that ethical!

  • Richard Q

    Ronn Torossian is absolutely correct in his words of admiration for this patriotic hero Sheldon Adelson. There’s nothing wrong with making money in America.
