Obama Plays the Sideburn Card

On August 1, 2008 By

If you’ve watched TV at all in the past few days then you’ve certainly seen Obama’s “Dollar Bill” remarks played over and over again…

“So nobody really thinks that Bush or McCain have a real answer for the challenges we face, so what they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me,” he told voters in Springfield. “You know, he’s not patriotic enough. He’s got a funny name. You know, he doesn’t look like all those other Presidents on those dollar bills, you know. He’s risky. That’s essentially the argument they’re making.”

Earlier today Tim over at BI posted about the invite for an upcoming McCain fundraiser in Dublin, Ohio that seems to break multiple campaign finance laws.

Update: I guess the McCain camp is a bit worried about this because they pulled it from the campaign website calendar! Whoops.

The straight talking maverick is at it again. He’s skirting campaign finance laws he used to support and built his maverick appeal on. This time in Ohio. It’s a shell game, really. Though legislation limits individual contributions to $2,300, McCain and his rich friends have decided to skirt a law with his name on it by creating a financing structure in conjunction with the RNC.
