The NY Times reports that the Obama campaign is having trouble meeting its ambitious fundraising goals after its decision not to accept public financing. And Marc Ambinder writes that now Team Obama is quietly embracing outside 527 groups. If you recall, when Obama broke his pledge to accept public financing, his justification was that the system was broken, and that he needed money to fight Republican outside groups that were out to slime him. Now it turns out that he won’t take public money and he’ll be relying on outside groups.
A new kind of politics, indeed.
