So then I guess we've never had a good-looking president, if JFK doesn't count. I can't think of any, anyway. Ah, we Americans are all a bunch of dog-faced misfits, why should our presidents be any different.

To be fair, Obama is starting to show his stripes.

The one thing that was real, that I could count on as a tangible testament to his character, was that, like John Edwards, Obama was refusing campaign contributions from political action committees.

But now that things are rolling for him, Obama's already backed-off from this. He is in the process of returning the eighty-five million in funding he got from the Federal government for his campaign so that he will be free to take contributions from PACs.

So, I've stated it before when Edwards dropped out, and I'll state it again. America has once again fucked up and screwed themselves.
Now that Edwards is out of the running, unfortunately so is a chance for a better America, and a better world.

truth or rumor?

i googled but found nothing.

this is weird because his campaign's success is small donors. funny enough i can see this as his argument to back off from public financing (his take was: be free from large donors). but i digress.

link please?

Nope - the conspiracy theorist in me believes that the fix is in and McCain is going to win. He'll be easily manipulated by large corporations and that's all that's important. The voting machines are too easy to program to create the desired results.

(It's still a) rumor at this point, but one hears it from bipartisan voices, so it's probably true. At any rate,

Obama takes campaign donations from people who hire lobbyists and give to PACs. In other words, he doesn’t avoid special interests: he just cuts out the middleman.

yeah that has been in discussion since magoo's funds started to dry up. it's been on the washington post, the mcneil lehrer news hour, blogs, etc. it's all speculation on what obama may do & it relates to his recent statement that he'd sit down with mccain to hammer out an agreement, etc.

nowhere there, though, says that "[Obama] is in the process of returning the eighty-five million in funding he got from the Federal government for his campaign so that he will be free to take contributions from PACs."

at any rate,
the only duh-worthy thing here is your implication that obama got any public financing (he hasn't) and that he's returning it (there's nothing to return) so he can get some PAC money (he won't).


MAGOO is the one who got public financing. he got it when his campaign was bankrupt.

the story goes like this:
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/23/us...ics/23fec.html
(that's from february 2007)

what this calls for, were obama the nominee, is that he returns the money he's received and sticks to $85 mil from public financing.

magoo, who is stuck with public financing now, is callign for obama to do as him
http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalra...-attack-1.html

recently obama showed a bit of caution saying he'll "sit down with mccain to hammer out an agreement"-- he'll have to do that or eat his words or find a way out. but this has nothing to do with PACs-- his success has been with the small contributions online-- $50, $100, etc.

at any rate, magoo has no incentive to stay stuck with public financing and he's looking for a way out, but he'll face some troubles in the process

I don't know that a president makes all that much difference anyway, except in the event of Supreme Court nominations that could shape the law of the land for decades and in matters of foreign wars that could kill our sons and daughters for generations.

Okay, a president might make some difference.
