DISAPPOINTING STORY ON JOHN MCCAIN... CAMPAIGN FINANCE PET ISSUE OR PET ROCK?
From Power Line. If this is true, it's very disappointing for me. I like McCain and think he's a great Senator for America. He has long been in the forefront of campaign finance reform, but if the following and related article is true then his leadership on the issue was probably just a fabrication from his staffers feeding him the information and positions. Really sucks.
Mr. Smith said he doesn't think Mr. McCain understands his own signature issue. "He is woefully ill-informed on campaign finance issues," Mr. Smith said. "I have seen him repeatedly misstate what the law is, misstate what court decisions held, and I think that's one reason he gets so angry when he talks about it. It's because he doesn't really understand what a complex issue it is, what a difficult issue it is, he doesn't understand the court hearings, he doesn't understand how we've gotten where we are -- so he just gets mad."
