McCain Aid Cons CNN in Attack on Obama

How dumb is CNN’s Dan Lotian?

But former Republican colleague Dan Cronin said the presidential candidate’s campaign of bold change doesn’t square with his past. “There were no bold solutions; there were no creative approaches; there were no efforts to stand up to the establishment,” said Cronin, a member of the Illinois General Assembly since 1990, and now a member of White House hopeful John McCain’s Illinois Leadership Team.

Cronin is campaigning for McCain and Lotian puts forth this attack in a story about Obama? When Josh Marshall first covered this story, I wonder if the line about Cronin being part of the John McCain’s Illinois Leadership Team was in the original version of this story.
