Obama Lies Again

By now it would seem clear that Barack Obama is hardly an honest politician.

Barack Obama has decided to break his promise to use the federal public financing if John McCain did the same thing.

Hot Air has some QOTD which sum up his actions nicely. Here's my favourite-

Barack Obama chose winning over his word

“And with that, the first-term Illinois senator tarnished his carefully honed image as a different kind of politician — one who means what he says and says what he means — while undercutting his call for ‘a new kind of politics.’…

The irony of it all, of course, is that his reasons for abandoning public financing don't even hold water. He's out and out lying to the American people again.

It was the question of third-party spending that offered Obama his final pretext for pulling out of the public system. On June 12, McCain said he couldn't act as "referee" of independent groups, a stance Obama complained of in his web video Thursday morning announcing his decision to withdraw from the system.

Ironically, there are no major Republican independent efforts attacking Obama, though the left-leaning has put more than $500,000 behind an advertisement showing a mother telling McCain that he can't take her infant son to war.

And thanks to the media's absenteeism during Primary season Democrat voters don't have a choice any more.
