CNN’s Campbell Brown: Obama Rolling In Dough Earned On A Broken Promise

Promise Breaker, Profit Taker

Promise Breaker, Profit Taker

Oh golly. She sounds like a prom date rejected at the last minute. The commentary is actually quite sincere. I have to say I’m impressed as this has engendered me a touch more to her and CNN that I had previously been. I’m glad to see someone other than FOX News and the blogs telling the truth. 

In the commentary (link here), she writes:

Without question, Obama has set the bar at new height with a truly staggering sum of cash. And that is why as we approach this November, it is worth reminding ourselves what Barack Obama said last November.

One year ago, he made a promise. He pledged to accept public financing and to work with the Republican nominee to ensure that they both operated within those limits.

Then it became clear to Sen. Obama and his campaign that he was going to be able to raise on his own far more cash than he would get with public financing. So Obama went back on his word.

The courageous among Obama’s own supporters concede this decision was really made for one reason, simply because it was to Obama’s financial advantage.

On this issue today, former Sen. Bob Kerrey of Nebraska, an Obama supporter, writes in The New York Post, “a hypocrite is a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue — who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings. And that, it seems to me, is what we are doing now.”

Folks, heap praise on her for this. I’m serious. Last week she ran a commentary on the media bashing Sarah Palin for her wardrobe and how asinine that is with so many bigger issues to question her regarding (Brown is not a Palin fan). I do believe in praising people when they do a good job. In this case, two weeks in a row, Campbell Brown, here is to a job well done.

Remember, what she is talking about is the validity and integrity of Barack Obama’s word. In her mind, he broke a promise. If it is one thing I know, it’s never break a promise, especially to a woman! Hope and Change this is not.
