Well golly, gosh and gee whizzikers. Barack Obama is raising less money than his campaign expected. Apparently his fundraising stopped meeting expectations shortly after his primary victory in the early summer.
Hmm. Something else happened then, too. What was it? Hmm. I’ll remember any minute now…
… oh, right. Right after he secured a primary win with his promises, Barack Obama flip-flopped:
* to support for a faith-based initiatives program that would prop up churches using government money even more than the Bush administration currently does
* from opposing the warrantless surveillance of Americans to supporting it and even promising to use it in his administration, with the promise that it’s OK, really, see, because we all can just trust him like we all could just trust George W. Bush, except, um, it’s different because Barack Obama is sweller
* from opposing offshore oil drilling to embracing it
Hmm. What a coincydink.
