USA - Understand. #PresObama sent Seal Team 6 to nail OBL. If he needs a SuperPAC to crush the GOP, he'll have the best. That's how you WIN.

The GOP is so offended by the President's use of Super PACs that they're using their best Super PACs to blast him.

Russ Feingold lost to a Republican who now sports a 100% rating from the Koch Brothers. Russ' purity and a dollar buys you a cup of coffee

@SamuelCookIII I just wish Feingold would stop attacking the PBO on this & understand the reality of what the GOP is doing & go after them.

Will Pres Obama look hypocritical supporting Super PACs? Yes he will. Does he have a choice? No he does not. Sorry Russ Feingold

@rolandsmartin No, he doesn't look hypocritical to me. The GOP's bringing a machete to a knife fight.

Crazy Republican primary results! A strange backlash of the advent of super-PACs?

SOME ADDITIONAL COMMENTS ON TWITTER...

Tweeters' reactions to the President's decision to use donations from Super PACs have been mixed. Support from the President's base on Twitter seems overall favorable to the President's decision.

Will any media outlets decrying the Obama campaign's decision to unleash Super PACs refuse to sell them air-time? Bwahahaha! #p2 #TFY
