I guess he meant "just words" literally. Maybe by "change" Obama was refering to changing his word. The people are all the same. This guy is no different. I'm so voting 3rd party this year. Obama rejects public financing against McCain Thu Jun 19, 2008 6:11pm EDT Obama to forgo public funds for election campaign By John Whitesides and Caren Bohan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Barack Obama said on Thursday he would reject public financing of his campaign against Republican John McCain, reversing an earlier stance and positioning himself to outspend McCain in the White House race. Obama said in a video message to supporters he would refuse $84 million in public funds available for the November general election. He is the first U.S. presidential candidate to bypass the system since it was created after the Watergate scandal in the mid-1970s. ............... "It's not an easy decision, and especially because I support a robust system of public financing of elections," Obama said in a video message e-mailed to supporters. "But the public financing of presidential elections as it exists today is broken and we face opponents who've become masters at gaming this broken system," he said. http://www.reuters.com/article/topNews/idUSN1828132020080619 You know, he sounds just like Wildo and Patters in those last two paragraphs. See, it's not his fault that he went against his word. It's his opponents fault dammit! The years may change but politicians always remain the same.
