The normally easygoing Chuck Todd sounded rather upset this morning, highlighting a New York Times story that exposed President Obama’s plan to sell access to the White House for wealthy donors to his reorganized campaign operation, Organizing for Action.

“Excuse us? This just looks bad,” Todd said heatedly, criticizing the President for “ceding the moral high ground.”

Todd pointed out that President Obama’s hypocrisy on the issue was appalling, reminding viewers how often Obama spent his career campaigning against the influence of money in politics.

“This is how a bad system gets worse,” Todd concluded. “I wonder what candidate Obama would say about this.”
