Obama Equates his Public Financing Lie to the Declaration of Independence

You have to give the Obama campaign points for hutzpah. Granted Obama's decision to bypass public financing after he signed a pledge to take it is probably smart politics. However, his web site is now marketting that broken promise as a declaration of, "Independence from a broken system". I suppose stating 'I lied, but please send me money anyways' would not be that effective a fundraiser, but it certainly would be more honest than pretending that this was some sort of noble decision. Referencing the Declaration of Independence to cover up this old school political maneuver is clever and shady.

Again, ignorance speaks for itself.

There are no words. This guy is a real piece of work. The blind allegiance to and collective unawareness of his subversive manipulation never cease to amaze me. Arrogance does not begin to describe it. He shows a profound disrespect for democracy. He exhibits no conscience, no moral compass - it seems to me. I keep thinking, hoping, people will wake up. I fear the consequences of our failure to do so.

In February of this year, O'boy told Larry king "the public financing system is not broken".

It's more smoke, mirrors, and magnets from O'boy to distract from his lies, backflips, and lack of character and experience.
