Why in the world should Obama reject contributions from ordinary Americans while McCain circumvents the system
in favor of special corporate interests- again.

Got a link? I prefer to read it from a source rather than have you try to spoon feed me a synopsis.

Obama and his followers are funny. Try to spin it all you want, this is a clear case of Obama being dishonest.

God help the rest of us if they get into the White House.

Obama, typical dishonest politician.

McCain has decried the spending and attack ads by such groups and has promised to speak out against those campaigning on behalf of Republicans.

``Anyone who believes they could assist my campaign by exploiting a loophole in campaign finance laws is doing me and our country a disservice,'' McCain said in November.
OP got his "facts" wrong. Like when Germany attacked Pearl Harbor.

So Obama was naive in pledging he would abide by the federal finance system? Just another example of how he's; 1. in over his head; or 2. purposely lying and deceptive.

No better than Bush. It's either incompetence or deceit. There's no other excuse. The system was broken when he made his original pledge. Nothing's changed aside from his standing in the primaries and the amount of money he can raise.

He didn't "pledge" anything.

I totally agree with you. Bush also campaigned to change Washington in 2000, and look where it got us. Obama is the liberal version of Bush with bad economic policies.

Obama, just like Bush.

He hasn't even tried to work with McCain's campaign to pursue and agreement. He's already decided it will not go anywhere.

Obama, unlike most candidates plans to compete in all 50 states. That can't be done on public funding.

It's a FACT that McCain scammed the system already. Why should Obama tie his hands over such a fraud like McCain?

Obama said he would be willing to negotiate with McCain, but McCain had absolutely no interest in resticting the RNC and 527's. It's all a game to him.

This way candidate McCain supposedly takes a high road, but in reality is using others routes to the same end.

Spare us the contrived "lie"

Most Americans see what McCain is doing.

Unfortunately for McCain also, is that Obama raises millions from ordinary Americans.

Call a Obama whatever you like or whatever the AM dial and wingnut blogs tell you to call him, but Obama would have been foolish to take McCain's silly bait.

That would be you to make such a ridiculous claim.

If you really want to see slime and deceit, connect the dots from McCain to Enron and the California energy “crisis” and the current oil “crisis”

Anyone who really understands that, would be truly incompetent to support such a corrupt person like McCain.
