Obama Joins McCain in Whining to the FEC about Unfair 527 Ads

Via Talk Left, Obama has filed a complaint with the FEC over a 527 ad airing in Indiana. Here's the ad:

Now it might be a bit unfair, but illegal? C'mon. All it accuses him of is not having specifics in his economic plans. That's hardly some sort of swiftboating. I've seen harder ads than this for insurance commissioner. And does this mean he thinks McCain was right to complain to the FEC about the DNC ad?

Of course, there is a way for Obama to show he has specific plans, he could debate Hillary.

I suppose this is BO's Truth Police's first, even though they are "aimed" at the Clinton's (Hillary's reaction is that it is 'strange' read more at link below)

Why debate when you can use "thought police"

then, forget how he's going to withstand the GOP attack machine, how's he going to attack McCain? Because we're going to need to hit McCain harder than this.

I know he gets away with holding himself to a different standard than Hillary Clinton, but she's evil and her supporters are racists. If he thinks he's going to get away with that shit against McCain, he's crazy.

and the media wouldn't let him if he tried. What a whiney baby.

And check out the comments on that link about Obama's truth squad. One from Roemer's cousin expressing disappointment that Roemer is participating in the truth squad. The other asks if the truth squad will point out how Obama has stolen his policies from Clinton. Ouch. It was particularly striking because I'm used to the Oborg immediately spamming comment sections.

that nobody likes a whiner.

I guess it's their MO when they get themselves in trouble... they whine and then go for a scalp from the other side (see, Ferraro, Geraldine)... now it's Podesta and Reynolds. But only against HRC.

I fail to see what does Obama campaign achieves by whining. Any ideas?

because the OFB are too stupid to realize that Obama talks out of both sides of his mouth*.

Simple answers I suppose.

*or they DO realize, and just don't give a fuck. Upon quick reflection, I'm going to say they don't give a fuck.

Process is red meat to the OFB. They don't see it as whining at all.

In my "civilian" life I have seen time and time again how the concept of process comes in whenever a solution to a problem is elusive. In these cases, the "process" people claim that the lack of solution is due to a faulty process. It's always a fake; it's never done by the thinkers; it's always done by the operators.

Although, this description can fit the Obama mob, why not call it what it always is: a smoke screen, an escape, a trick. Clearly, it's not a serious attempt.
