A simple question

From today’s Politico by Ken Vogel:

“[Campaign finance] watchdogs have … [become] increasingly disenchanted with [Obama’s] record on campaign finance issues.

“Obama broke a promise to participate in a Watergate-era public funding system designed to reduce the role of fundraising in presidential elections, becoming the first presidential candidate to refuse the public funds on his way to raising a record-shattering $750 million, and – many observers believe – ensuring future presidential candidates also bypass the system.”

QUESTION: Is there anyone who thinks any of the country’s current problems are caused by Barack Obama’s decision not to accept government financing in last year’s campaign?
