McCain caught in trap he set:
McCain: Obama fundraising hurts public financing - Yahoo! News
They have no problem voting for an initiative that would send trillions of taxpayers money into Wall Street. Imagine if they gave those trillions and spread it to the American people. We would have benefited this economy much more than the $300 billion (or whatever # it is) they propose in the stimulus package.
Nope, the stimulus package did zip, as will the second if Obama is elected. Money seeks its own level. (I'm certain you've heard that if all the money were distributed fairly, in a certain amount of time, it would make its way back to those that are currently 'rich'.)
This sounds like whining from a man who is used to being in the party that has the most money.
funny how when something doesnt work well for republicans they want to stop it....
obama turned down public funding.....mccain could have done the same.
especially since he knew that Obama was turning it down in advance. He could've easily opted out as well.
I think Obama would still be kickin his ass in fundraising though.
Turning down public funding is just another example of Obama being smarter than McCain.
Obama is running a great campaign.
I agree. The whole idea of regulating campaigns was stupid.
That is the ticket... when the corporations out donated the people the republicans cheered. Suddenly the people are engaged in politics and the republicans are crying "foul".
Can y'all think of any ways to reform our politics?
