Obama outspending McCain on advertising by more than 4 to 1

It is amazing that McCain is still in the race with this large of a difference in advertising.

Obama, the Democratic candidate, is now running at least four times as much advertising nationwide as his Republican rival, John McCain, according to CMAG, a service that monitors political advertising. That difference is even larger in several closely contested states.

The huge gap has been made possible by Obama's decision to opt out of the federal campaign finance system, which gives presidential nominees a dollar for every dollar they raise but limits to $84 million the amount they can spend between their party convention and Election Day. McCain is participating in the system. . . .

Two observations:

1) Watch what people do not what they say

2) Another pattern of inconsistency with Obama

This guy swings in the wind more easily than even Clinton did.

And that does not include the media bias advantage that Obama has, for which he hasn't paid a penny. That's probably a 5-20% booster.
