Reversing an earlier stand, President Barack Obama is now encouraging donors to give generously to the kind of political fundraising groups he has assailed as a "threat to democracy." Obama's re-election campaign says he has little choice if he is to compete with the big-money conservative groups that have proven highly successful with attack ads in the Republican primaries.
