MAVERICK HAD THE GUY'S NUMBER FOUR YEARS AGO:

Obama move irks reform allies (KENNETH P. VOGEL, 6/19/08, Politico)

Barack Obama’s shift away from a public financing program has drawn fire from Republicans, but it’s also irked his sometime allies in the good government community.

They had come to see the Illinois senator as a budding champion for their efforts to reduce the role of special interest money in politics. And they praised his announcement last year that his presidential campaign would “aggressively pursue an agreement with the Republican nominee” under which both would accept taxpayer money in the general election.

So they were disappointed with Obama’s Thursday announcement that he would opt out of the public financing system and torn over his efforts to frame the move in the language of the campaign finance reform movement.


He doesn't care abour reform, just about himself.

Main reason to dropping out: George Soros.
Republicans will be lucky to get any face time, anywhere during this election. Bury the angry oil consumer story! Put Obama everywhere! Don't let anyone ask him anything! Blame Bush! Blame McCain! They're the same!

If it weren't so audacious (and it's working), I'd laugh.
