First, I think this is surprising. Although people like refer to it in a rather insuating manner, the fact is that McCain really did nothing wrong. Keating was his consituent. He got dragged through the mud for political ‘fairness’. http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9C0CE4DA133EF93AA1575AC0A966958260 Maybe this is why he’s so adamant about not meeting foreign leaders without precondition. He’s already been tagged once in his life for for meeting someone when it appeared bad.
Obama’s reputation was that he was above this, but he has now lost any high ground he claimed in regards to campaign practices. Even worse, it is coming directly from his campaign, not a 529 group.
Why did Obama do this? He is winning and pulling away in the polls? Why sully his reputation?
