From his earlier assertion that he would use public funding, Obama has changed his mind. Why? Because he’s a politician and when something is to his advantage he will use it and when something isn’t he will abandon it. Obama is just like every other lying politician and why - in spite of all his blather about ‘change’ - he will be nothing else than a politician who does business as usual.Properly-measured reaction:
Third, he's a politician. He's going to disappoint us. If I were one of those people who I suspect live mostly in the imaginations of columnists at the National Review -- the people who think Obama is the messiah, capable of making the lion lie down with the lamb, cooling the planet with the touch of his hand, bringing the dead back to life, and so on -- I suppose I'd have just dissolved in tears and sworn off politics for life. Luckily, I'm not. And at times like this, I just cast my mind back over previous Democratic nominees -- Kerry, Clinton, Dukakis -- and think: FISA compromise or no FISA compromise, he's still the best candidate I can remember.
