Would John McCain Lie To You?

From ProfMTH

When it comes to his self-confessed ignorance of economics and statements he’s made about taxes, the answer is “yes, he lies quite regularly.” In fact, it’s pretty much impossible to know when he’s telling the truth.

Fox News pointing out that under Governor Sarah Palin, Alaska sought and obtained more federal money for pork barrel projects per capita than any other state in the union, and that it was the Democratic Congress that killed the so-called “Bridge to Nowhere”, not Governor Palin who refused it:

When *even* Fox News is calling John McCain a liar, you gotta know things are bad for McCain:

Is Palin Guilty of Treason? – UPDATED

From the Jed Report

Why was she a guest speaker at this year’s AIP Convention? And she goes on to praise this anti-American group. Treason???

Sarah Palin accuses Obama of treason when at the same time she shows her support for an organization that enlisted Iran to help spread anti-American sentiment. I would consider that aiding and abetting the enemy. But then again, Republicans are allowed to commit treason without consequence. Karl Rove set the precedent when he exposed the name of a covert CIA Agent and never paid the price for his act of treason.

When someone at a Palin rally shouted “treason” and she remained silent, that is indicative of her approving that statement. She also supports the assassination of a candidate by not condemning the shout of “kill him” during one of her rallies. Her silence and smirk makes her complicit to hate mongering.

UPDATE:

Read the article at Salon for more details about the Alaska Independence Party, their support and help in getting Palin elected Mayor of Wasilla and their sponsorship by Iran.

Learn about the Palins unAmerican activities.

After learning more about the AIP, I can now understand that Sarah Palin’s is comfortable in stiring up racism and hate when she speaks.

The Republican ticket is working hard this week to make Barack Obama’s tenuous connection to graying, ’60s revolutionary Bill Ayers a major campaign issue. But the Palins’ connection to anti-American extremism is much more central to their political biographies.

Imagine the uproar if Michelle Obama was revealed to have joined a black nationalist party whose founder preached armed secession from the United States and who enlisted the government of Iran in his cause? The Obama campaign would probably not have survived such an explosive revelation. Particularly if Barack Obama himself was videotaped giving the anti-American secessionists his wholehearted support just months ago.

Where’s the outrage, Sarah Palin has been asking this week, in her attacks on Obama’s fuzzy ties to Ayers? The question is more appropriate when applied to her own disturbing associations.

The Real Keating Five and John McCain – UPDATED

This is a MUST VISIT website…

http://www.keatingeconomics.com/

No wonder John McCain says he doesn’t understand the economy.  He was in cahoots with the Charles Keating where 20,000 Americans lost their savings when the Savings and Loan failed.  John McCain pushed for deregulation then and he continues to push for deregulation now.  And speaking of now, the taxpayers were presented with another bailout to the tune of $700 billion.  John McCain still supports deregulation and he wants to deregulate health care and he wants people under the age of 55 to put their Social Security money in a failing stock market.

John McCain, bad for the economy.

Shorter video below:

UPDATE:  John McCain and Charles Keating:

(excerpt from Rolling Stone – referencing John McCain’s first run for Congress)

To finance his campaign, McCain dipped into the Hensley family fortune. He secured an endorsement from his mentor, Sen. Tower, who tapped his vast donor network in Texas to give McCain a much-needed boost. And he began an unethical relationship with a high-flying and corrupt financier that would come to characterize his cozy dealings with major donors and lobbyists over the years.

Charlie Keating, the banker and anti-pornography crusader, would ultimately be convicted on 73 counts of fraud and racketeering for his role in the savings-and-loan scandal of the 1980s. That crisis, much like today’s subprime-mortgage meltdown, resulted from misbegotten banking deregulation, and ultimately left taxpayers to pick up a tab of more than $124 billion. Keating, who raised more than $100,000 for McCain’s race, lavished the first-term congressman with the kind of political favors that would make Jack Abramoff blush. McCain and his family took at least nine free trips at Keating’s expense, and vacationed nearly every year at the mogul’s estate in the Bahamas. There they would spend the days yachting and snorkeling and attending extravagant parties in a world McCain referred to as “Charlie Keating’s Shangri-La.” Keating also invited Cindy McCain and her father to invest in a real estate venture for which he promised a 26 percent return on investment. They plunked down more than $350,000.

Campaign Economy Elections McCain Obama Opinion Palin Poll Vote Voting

Obama Landslide Victory In The Making

Just another quick update on my electoral college analysis, since my last update there has been some changes and of course we’ve had two debates.  There are also have been some changes in my thinking as the blue wave is starting to to build yet again.  With 30 days out it appears to me that this election is over, Americans are worried about actual issues instead of the silly stuff. McCain basically imploded and Palin isn’t enough to save him, it just gave a temporary reprieve to his campaign for a time.  The chance of an Obama victory in the Electoral College nwo stands at a 90% chance.  The chance of an Obama Landslide (375 EC votes +) has leaped from <5% to now 24%.  But I would put his max performance in reality around the 350 range.

McCain has abandoned Michigan, PA finally is pulling away for Obama.  This is seen below in a combined safe votes map.  I’ve turned PA and MI blue.  NM also is steady Obama and NH isn’t that close anymore.  This added 47 more votes to Obama’s safe count.  McCain on the other hand has lost his safe grip on MO and surprisingly MT. Also Obama is making apuch for that one EC vote in NE around Omaha that I’ve been talking about for so long.  This is obvious because Sarah Palin was sent there to campaign there.

McCain’s main strategy now appears to be to defend bush states, but obviously doens’t have the angle or the resources to go after any Kerry states any more.  Obama is just 5 EC shy now of his 269 win/tie, while Johnny Mac needs 101 more votes.  There are 9 toss up states and anyone win for Obama except for one (MT) gets him the presidency.  Big changes to my projection for Election night.  Polling in VA and NC has been very good for Obama so at this point I have to say he is the favorite there.  McCain will hold on in MT and MO and thats it (In is a true 50/50 filp), everywhere else will go to Obama.  The missed polling of younger voters will more than over take any Bradley effect and any state where McCain doens’t have a lead now he will lose.  If his attacking Obama through smears goes badly which it might, the status of MO, MT, ND, and IN might flip and deliver the true landslide.  (I gave Obama that 1 EC vote from NE)  This makes a ceiling for Obama of 382 EC votes.

I will update again after the next debate and after seeing how the negative attacks play out.

Of the Obama states I have down for a final the most in play for McCain to take back would be OH (less likely) economic issues too much here and NC.  The most likely McCain state to fall would be IN as said before.  NV is almost in Obama’s safe map by the way.  There are just way too many states for McCain to defend and Obama has way too many assets, even Carl Rove is predicting an Obama vicory as of today.

Who DOESN’T Want to Have a Beer With this Guy

McCain the Arrogent.  This man is always the bully.  Here he is bullying the press and the he wonders why the press doesn’t like him.

(thanks to Bryan Leftwitz at DailyKos for the video link)

Guess the “Georgetown Coctail Party” group doesn’t invite McCain to join them.  And listen how he dances around the health care issue, you know, the one that the taxpayers are paying for.

You can see the entire interview here

UPDATE:  You’ll want to read this Diary written by an Alaska State Representative if you want the truth about Sarah Palin.  Looks like McCain’s “Straight Talk Express” takes a detour when it comes to Palin.

Now that I think of it, straight talk doesn’t necessarily mean truthful talk.  It means “I say what I want regardless of whether it’s the truth or a lie.”

McCain’s Friends

John McCain, more of the same.  His economic plan is to “stop government spending”.  Hello, it’s not government spending that created this downward spiral on Wall Street.  It’s the deregulation that, Phil Graham,  McCain’s economic adviser put into place back in the 1990’s.  Yeah, McCain’s friend George W Bush wants Main Street to give him a blank check.  Why?  So he can run off to Paraguay with our money in January 09?  I’ve said it before and I will say it again… NEVER TRUST A REPUBLICAN WITH YOUR MONEY.  HOLD ONTO YOUR WALLET WHEN A REPUBLICAN TALKS ABOUT “CHANGE” BECAUSE IT WILL COST YOUR MORE MONEY.

What the news is not talking about is that small banks are doing just fine.

McCain’s Bailout Plan – Update

The Republicans and John McCain floated a new bailout plan that provides more corporate tax breaks and less regulation. This is isn’t change. This is more of the same.

After all the shenanigans and politics that happened today, I’m beginning to think that there really isn’t a crises that needs emergency care. If the US economy was in such dire straights, there would have been an agreement this afternoon. Instead, all the bi-partisan work over the last 3 days just went up in smoke. And he was holding the gun? None other than the “Maverick”, John McCain, the gambler that wants to gamble with the America’s future.

The alternative plan that John McCain presented is proof that McCain is completely influenced by corporate lobbyist. He sold his soul and now the devils have come to collect.

Shame on McCain.

Update:

Read what a veteran has to say about John McCain…from testvet6778 at Daily Kos.

John McCain, always the liar.  I’m not sure who lies the most.  Is it George W Bush or John S McCain?  I haven’t heard the truth from McCain at all during his campaign.  This makes me question the validity of his POW experience.

John McCain voted to impeach Clinton for lying and yet he wants us to vote for him and ignore the fact that he lies.
