So much for his “new kind of politics.” Barack Obama has perhaps set a new record — the first candidate to break a campaign promise 5 months before the election even takes place!
Obama has long promised he would be a new kind of politician, and that he wanted to run a clean, respectable campaign. Not that anyone but his Kool-aid drinking minions believed him, but he has officially thrown that promise under the bus along with all the friends, associates and family members that have gotten in his way. The dollar signs were too much for him, Barack Obama has now officially broken his promise to enter into the federal elections public financing system, a pledge he made to voters and to John McCain.
Naturally, like any good Democrat, Obama blames his lies on Republicans!
“It’s not an easy decision, and especially because I support a robust system of public financing of elections. But the public financing of presidential elections as it exists today is broken, and we face opponents who’ve become masters at gaming this broken system.”
Sorry, Barry, that lie aint gonna fly. Are you seriously expecting the American people to believe that the system suddenly broke between when you made that pledge and today? Or are you going to claim that you didn’t know it was broken back then? And how precisely is it broken? You fail to mention that.
You should notice also that Obama is pulling this stunt on a Friday, as candidates always do when theyre trying to pull one over on the public, hoping that with the weekend about to start, no one will be paying attention.
The simple fact is Obama has more money. He has raised $265 million to John McCain’s $115 million, and he is breaking his promise to the American people and to John McCain for that reason and that reason only. Funny how quickly Obama abandons his word and his supposed principles for cash.
Obama then tells Americans another bald-faced lie, “And we’ve already seen that he’s not going to stop the smears and attacks from his allies running so-called, who will spend millions and millions of dollars in unlimited donations.”
But contrary to Obama’s claim, the AP reports (sorry AP, since you won’t let us quote you, I’m not going to link to you either) that few if any Republican 527’s have weighed in on the election, whereas Moveon.org, a left-wing 527 allied with Barack Obama has already spent millions smearing John McCain, their latest commercial accusing John McCain of wanting to steal babies!
How many lies has Obama been caught in already? Dozens? And he isn’t even the official nominee!
Apparently when Barack Obama says he wants to usher in a “new kind of politics” he means dirtier and more dishonest than ever!
