McCain advisor uses POW status to attack Obama on campaign funding
CNN’s John Roberts talked with Nancy Pfotenhauer who is an advisor for John McCain’s campaign. Pfotenhauer used John McCain’s status as a former prisoner of war to attack Obama’s decision to decline public campaign funding.
Pfotenhauer said, “Just suppose Obama who has a preacher’s gift for a righteous statements but side steps like a politician when it’s going to cost him anything, with John McCain he wouldn’t take the easy way out, even when his life was on the line as a prisoner of war and he was offered early release and special treatment and he refused to take it because that wasn’t the right thing to do.”
