Lets see if we understand this correctly: the sitting President of the United States through his campaign staff along with current and former White House advisers have started a Political Action Committee which is being promoted by emails under the current Presidents name as well as a video from the First Lady which appears to have been recorded inside the White House?
Today, a new grassroots organization is being launched: Organizing for Action.
Following in the footsteps of the campaign you built, Organizing for Action will be an unparalleled force in American politics. It will work to turn our shared values into legislative action — and it’ll empower the next generation of leaders in our movement.
We may have started this as a long shot presidential primary campaign in 2007, but it’s always been about more than just winning an election. Together, we’ve made our communities stronger, we’ve fought for historic legislation, and we’ve brought more people than ever before into the political process.
We have the power to do even more to change our politics and our country for the better.
With Organizing for Action, you’ll have every resource you need to do it. But it starts with you. This new organization is in your hands.
I’m so excited to see what you all do next — and so grateful to be part of it.
Paid for by Organizing for Action

So for four years now the President of the United States has failed to perform his job duties and has continued to campaign on the tax payers dime and now he and the first lady are putting their name and face on email solicitations for a newly organized Political Action Committee run by Obama’s own campaign staff and former White House advisers and Press Secretary. Now does anyone else find this ethically questionable at all?
So with Michelle Obama lending her voice and face on the newly formed Organizing for Action, is she now fair game for media scrutiny and is she now fair game in regards to being questioned by the media?
We have no idea what the legality of a sitting President and First Lady being involved in a PAC or the recording of a video by Michelle Obama for the PAC. We would like to know if Michelle Obama recorded the above video inside the White House and if any White House resources were involved in the production of said video?
Organizing for Action is being led by former White House press secretary and Obama yes man Robert Gibbs; former senior White House adviser David Axelrod; Obama 2012 Campaign manager Jim Messina and Obama 2012 Deputy Campaign Manager Stephine Cutter.
The email above is just the latest we have received from the Obama campaign arm in the past few days and we find it questionable in that the sitting President and First Lady who has spent millions of tax payer dollars on elaborate vacations for herself and friends would record a video talking about making the voice of average Americans heard again. The above email states “Paid for by Organizing for Action” but if you click the video link to watch the Michelle Obama commercial for OFA you will note “Paid for by Obama for America.”
We noticed Organizing for Action has one very interesting omission from its email compared to those of the old Organizing for America the Obama camp started at the time of the Health-care debate: unlike the Organizing for America which was operated in cooperation with the Democratic National Committee, Organizing for Action seems to be independent of the DNC allowing the newly formed OFA to be the sole beneficiary of its fundraising efforts.
