Do Not Believe McCain

Presumptive Republican nominee Sen. John McCain Sen. John McCain issued a statement minutes after Obama wrapped his speech: “Tonight, Americans witnessed a misleading speech that was so fundamentally at odds with the meager record of Barack Obama.

“When the temple comes down, the fireworks end and the words are over, the facts remain: Sen. Obama still has no record of bipartisanship, still opposes offshore drilling, still voted to raise taxes on those making just $42,000 per year and still voted against funds for American troops in harm’s way.

“The fact remains: Barack Obama is still not ready to be president.”

McCain the man who does not know how many houses he owns, “I’ll have to ask my staff.”? John, it is seven. McCain also has stated that the economy is great shape while the number of personal bankruptcies have soared over the last year, not mention the number of the business failures, bank failures, foreclosures, and a credit crisis; not least to mention you claim that we have become a nation of whiners. Really, John, whiners? Given that you make five million dollars a year and do not even know how many houses you own it hardly qualifies you to make that statement about Americans; it makes you sound like Hoover as Americans move into McCainvilles.

John, you are so evidently out of touch with what is going on in your own senate that you do not even remember signing the Great Lakes Compact that Obama was a huge part of and that required immense bipartisan support and work to pass the senate unanimously, which means it has your signature is on it, or did you forget because you are too old to remember and too senile to understand what bipartisanship means? Also the bill has moved on into the House of Representatives who have already endorsed it, along with President Bush saying he will sign it. John, you are lying. Obama has already made it clear that he is not raising taxes on the middle class, he is raising taxes on people who are earning over $200,000 a year, but then when you earn five million a year I am sure you believe this is minimum wage. John, Obama does not oppose off shore drilling, he just does not believe, and rightfully so, that it is the answer to the energy crisis. John, it is not the answer. Oh, and John, our troops are in harms way because you support a war with no end, and no real purpose, a war that you say could go on for 50 to 100 years. John, you are the one who does not support or respect our troops.

Barack Obama is not ready to be president? Really? John, you just put a woman on your ticket, Sarah Palin, as your running mate who is three years younger than Obama and has no international experience, yet you criticize Obama? That, John, makes you a hypocrite. John, you are so transparent with putting her on your ticket. You are desperate to get Hillary’s voters, yet you fail to recognize that she does not appeal to her base as she does not support a woman’s right to choose among other women’s issues. This is not a bold move to get women’s votes either; you stupidly believe that women vote for political leaders based on their gender. That is insulting to women everywhere and incredibly sexist. You claim she is an extremely ethical person, yet she is under investigation by her state legislature for having her ex-brother-in-law fired from his job because of a messy divorce.

Gov. Sarah Palin’s own legislature launched a $100,000 investigation earlier this month, as the Associated Press reported, “to determine if Palin dismissed Alaska’s public safety commissioner because he would not fire (a state) trooper, Mike Wooten. Wooten went through a messy divorce from Palin’s sister. Palin has denied the commissioner’s dismissal had anything to do with her former brother-in-law. And she denied orchestrating the dozens of telephone calls made by her husband and members of her administration to Wooten’s bosses.

The facts are in and you, John McCain, are not qualified to be president, you are not even qualified to be the local dog catcher because you have no real policies, nothing to offer and rely on gimmicks like Sarah Palin to be your vice presidential running mate, and ad hominem attacks.
