keep it up campbell! i might reconsider my feelings towards you! :)
(CNN) -- You may have heard that Wednesday night Barack Obama will be on five different TV networks speaking directly to the American people.
He bought 30 minutes of airtime from the different networks, a very expensive purchase. But hey, he can afford it. Barack Obama is loaded, way more loaded than John McCain, way more loaded than any presidential candidate has ever been at this stage of the campaign.
Just to throw a number out: He has raised well over $600 million since the start of his campaign, close to what George Bush and John Kerry raised combined in 2004.
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.
He broke his promise and he explained it by arguing that the system is broken and that Republicans know how to work the system to their advantage. He argued he would need all that cash to fight the ruthless attacks of 527s, those independent groups like the Swift Boat Veterans. It's funny though, those attacks never really materialized.

Maybe pregnancy has somehow cleared her mind. Doubtful
They didn’t need to materialize. They guy is a walking stink bomb.
It’s like they’re all trying to cover their asses...”see, see, we were fair!”
It's for being a MARXIST and SOCIALIST, STUPID!!!
Campbell’s stupid pills started wearing off the night of the last debate. Before we know it prissy Bill Burton will be whining about her too.
I’m surprised at this outburst from Campbell. Maybe she thinks the Obamunist is going to lose and she is distancing herself?
Accepting public financing is just the beginning of the promises he is going to go back on.
If it’s not a child, she ain’t pregnant. You don’t get pregnant with a choice.
Payback will be a bit*h on Nov 4th
And now we are supposed to believe it took Ms Brown this long to realize Obama makes promises that stink?
Hey Campbell, get a clue, it ain’t the last promise the big ‘0’ will break.....
Don't do it ...you'll be sorry
“Im surprised at this outburst from Campbell. Maybe she thinks the Obamunist is going to lose and she is distancing herself?”
I think the press love for Obama has been so obvious that some in the media are starting to CYA. See, see, we’re objective! We’re criticizing Obama!
When 70% of the public thinks the press is working to get Obama elected, the press has a PR problem.
Campbell Brown grew up in Baton Rouge Louisiana.
Perhaps she is a racist. BTW her Daddy is in prison I do believe. A crooked insurance commissioner,,all our insurance commissioners end up in prison.
I think when it comes down to political beliefs vs cash, cash wins.
thanks for posting this. Problem is, and of course it’s not your fault, but too little too late. AGain, where was the outcry from all the lame scream media libs when obama did this? Now, unless they all start to cry foul and claim Obama is a hypocrite, this little blurb will just go unnoticed. Let’s face it, Democraps can get away with murder because journalists will never fully hold their party of choice accountable for ANYTHING.
Yeah, throw the dogs one stripped bone with a sliver of meat on it after they have starved us, and then claim we were well fed.
