Obama "abandons"

What a nice way of putting it-

After making a commitment with to adhere to public financing and setting aside the big money politics, Barack has changed his mind.

Of course, instead of calling him a liar and demanding accountability, the media sugar coats it and gently calls it "abandoning"-

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Thursday he'll bypass the federal public financing system in the general election, abandoning an earlier commitment to take the money if his Republican rival did as well.

Basically, Barack Obama goes back on his word and ABANDONS the clean campaign that he promised.

Barack Obama proceeds to lie even further about Republicans and McCain-

"And we've already seen that he's not going to stop the smears and attacks from his allies running so-called 527 groups, who will spend millions and millions of dollars in unlimited donations," Obama said.

At least the media caught him on this lie and called him on it:

Despite Obama's claim that outside groups allied with McCain will spend millions of dollars against him, few Republican-leaning groups have weighed into the presidential contest so far. In fact, Obama allies such as are the ones have been spending money on advertising against McCain.
The more America sees of Barack Obama, the more he looks like the a smug, lying politician.
