This isn't just a change of position INVHO it's a bcakdown from a much publicized pledge. Just saw where he said the system was broken. Didn't he research it enough to know that prior to making his pledge? What other pledges will he decide he was wrong about?

Only the pledges that would be to his political disadvantage to keep...like this one.

How did I know that Alltell would lead the charge on this one? Campaign finance is not high on the totem pole right now as far as issues that most concern the American people. Obama knows that and doesn't want to reliquish his big money advantage. Overall, probably the best move. I like the Democrats having the money advantage for a change. Take that swift boaters!!!

Why do you people act so dumbfounded or saddened that politicians often change position or go back on what they previously "pledged?" They all change their minds if it benefits them politically. And so would you!!!

 

Political Pledge is as much an oxymoron as Alltell the Socialist or Math loves Bush.

And why did I know that Math would be one of the first to defend him?

 

I thought honesty and integrity were important to that side of the aisle. This isn't about campaign finances, personally I think all limits should be gone with 100% disclosure of every contributor but I digress. If he'll throw this much publicized pledge aside so cavalierly how can he be trusted to keep his word on anything?

But he was all about CHANGE. No more typical Washington, remember? I guess CHANGE means his mind whenever it trips his fancy.

The second greatest attack on McCain (besides the fact he is a Republican and thus just like Bush) is that he flip flops... why can't the same standards be held for Obama?

Well, I'm just glad McCain has never changed his policy positions for political expediency. Don't have to worry about John McCain going back on an important issue. Nosiree, that John McCain is as constant as the northern star.

So are you saying Obama isn't really about change, that he's more of the same old same old?
