Uh, am I the only one around here feeling a bit queasy?
Ok, I was impressed by Obama's speech to the conference of Mayors posted here recently. Not a bad speech. But, hmmmm, there have been a string of disappointments out of the Obama campaign recently. To me, the most significant was his turn around on public financing. Sorry, I get all the arguments about practicality, but taking huge money from big donors is taking huge money from donors. Period. I am also pretty concerned about the "guilt by association," "gotcha" baloney the Obama campaign has embraced with respect to the comments by McCain's campaign advisor who said that McCain's campaign would stand to benefit if there were another attack on the U.S. Would anyone here argue that Black's statement isn't at least a viable perspective, if not definitively true? One of the main reasons I supported Obama over Clinton was the tendency of his campaign to eschew such bullshit. There are certainly other problematic statements coming form Obama lately, from his opposition to the recent SC ruling that banned capital punishment in the child rape case, to his views on the telecom immunity issue. Are others getting that feeling in the pit of their stomach, or is this just another example of my tendency towards buyer's remorse?
