Senator McCain is using the old Rove tactic of attacking your opponents strong point and muddying a issue to cover up potential crimes. At the very minimum, John McCain has already broken the idealism of Public Campaign Finance by opting in to secure a loan and then trying to opt out when he mathematically locked up the GOP nomination.
Watch his comments carefully, he ALWAYS states that Obama’s promise was broken to the American people and specifically not to him. Thats because Senator Obama has from the start stipulated that a agreement must be made between the candidates to prevent undue outside influence from unregulated soft money and Political Action Committees (PACs).
