PBS - VIA HOT AIR:
TO GAIN AND HOLD TRACTION - AND TO FEED HIS ENORMOUS AMBITION, OBAMA HAS CONTINUOUSLY ABANDONED HIS LONGTIME FRIENDS, ALLIES, AND PRINCIPLES.
Mark Shields didn’t mince words on PBS about Barack Obama’s decision to opt out of public financing. Appearing as the progressive balance with David Brooks on Judy Woodruff’s show, Shields ripped into Obama, calling him unprincipled and suggesting that his latest video message painted him as a “hostage” who couldn’t pass a polygraph:
It was a flip-flop of epic proportions. It was one that he could not rationalize or justify. His video was unconvincing. He looked like someone who was being kept as a hostage somewhere he was so absolutely unconvincing in it. It could not have passed a polygraph test.
I mean, coming up with this bogus argument the Republicans have so much more money — the Republicans don’t have so much more money. He’s raised three times as much as John McCain has.
HE IS NOT TRUSTWORTHY.
