LOL Pretty slimy move, on his part, but after seeing how the liberals switched the Chris Dodd thread into a Larry Craig thread, I'm sure the Obamessiah kool-aid drinkers see nothing wrong with this, either. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7463813.stm Democrat Barack Obama has said he will not take public financing, allowing him to raise unlimited private funds in his campaign for the US presidency. His decision means he will forgo more than $80m (£40.5m) that would have been available for him to fight Republican John McCain for the White House. Candidates who accept public money cannot raise funds from private donors. Mr Obama set records raising money for his campaign for the Democratic nomination during the primary contests. System 'broken' The decision reverses his earlier promise to use the federal public financing system if his Republican rival also did so.
