An Interesting Dichotomy
I found this article rather interesting, if not only for the title:
“Romney will eat campaign loans”
Let’s contrast this with Hillary, who has been begging, pleading, and borrowing to cover every last penny of her campaign.
Some analysts said McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, might undermine his reform message if he picks someone who bankrolled so much of his own campaign.
‘‘Democrats would use it as an issue,’’ political analyst Stuart Rothenberg said today. ‘‘They would they try to undermine his reputation as ‘Mr. Reformer.’ “
How would this undermine McCain’s so-called “reform message?” It is perfectly and completely legal, as per the case of Buckley v. Valeo, to give your campaign as much money as you want. Sen. Obama should be much more concerned about being undermined as “Mr. Reformer.”
