In 2008, the Annenberg Public Policy Center reported that Barack Obama outspent John McCain 3 to 1 and “raised more money than anyone in the history of U.S. politics.”
Turn about would be fair play except the present President has the temperament of a four year old and the skin of an onion.
Obama’s complaint about being outspent is …. I can’t do it. It’s so far outside the realm of reality that I can’t create a meaningful analogy. There is nothing I can compare it to. Erickson uses the four year old’s temperament as a comparison for the behavior; but I don’t think this even comes close. Obama broke all the rules when it came to spending in 2008 – reversed his stance on public funding, out of country, unverified credit card transactions, corrupt bundlers – you name it. And now he bitches that he might be outspent.
