what do u know about McCain?

1. John McCain voted against establishing a national holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Now he says his position has “evolved,” yet he’s continued to oppose key civil rights laws.
2. According to Bloomberg News, McCain is more hawkish than Bush on Iraq, Russia and China. Conservative columnist Pat Buchanan says McCain “will make Cheney look like Gandhi.”
3. His reputation is built on his opposition to torture, but McCain voted against a bill to ban waterboarding, and then applauded President Bush for vetoing that ban.3
4. McCain opposes a woman’s right to choose. He said, “I do not support Roe versus Wade. It should be overturned.”4
5. The Children’s Defense Fund rated McCain as the worst senator in Congress for children. He voted against the children’s health care bill last year, then defended Bush’s veto of the bill.5
6. He’s one of the richest people in a Senate filled with millionaires. The Associated Press reports he and his wife own at least eight homes! Yet McCain says the solution to the housing crisis is for people facing foreclosure to get a “second job” and skip their vacations.6
7. Many of McCain’s fellow Republican senators say he’s too reckless to be commander in chief. One Republican senator said: “The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He’s erratic. He’s hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me.”7
8. McCain talks a lot about taking on special interests, but his campaign manager and top advisers are actually lobbyists. The government watchdog group Public Citizen says McCain has 59 lobbyists raising money for his campaign, more than any of the other presidential candidates.8
9. McCain has sought closer ties to the extreme religious right in recent years. The pastor McCain calls his “spiritual guide,” Rod Parsley, believes America’s founding mission is to destroy Islam, which he calls a “false religion.” McCain sought the political support of right-wing preacher John Hagee, who believes Hurricane Katrina was God’s punishment for gay rights and called the Catholic Church “the Antichrist” and a “false cult.”9
10 He positions himself as pro-environment, but he scored a 0–yes, zero–from the League of Conservation Voters last year.10

  1. 1. McCain has over 30 yrs of proven experience, character, leadership, personal ethics, clear vision on American needs, proven knowledge of foreign affairs, lower taxes, proven judgment,Graduated from the United States Naval Academy,US congressman for 26 years,ranking Member of the Armed Services Committee,Chairman of the powerful Senate Commerce Committee,Member of the Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs,has voted with his party only 63% of the time showing he is willing to put the country ahead of political parties. John McCain a REAL PATRIOT has 17 Medals, including the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Distinguished Flying Cross and 4 Commendations and 2 Citations,to earn those commendations,McCain stayed in the POW camp, not for future political leverage, but because he put the good of all before his own well being.That alone is proof of a great leader!! What do you have an Obama bumper sticker?
    2.Obama the Junior Senator. He has only been a Senator for 18 months.But with all the recesses, four day weekends, campaigning and absences, Obama has only spent about 6 weeks of workdays on the Senate floor as one of the most extreme liberal junior Senators,voted with his party 97% of the time according to an independent study (the highest percentage of any senator). Most of his votes, about 80% when he was not absent, have been “present” or “abstain”.
    He also chairs a committee on Afghanistan that has never met because the chairman has never called a meeting. As a trial lawyer he only tried 14 cases in court – and minor ones at that.
    As a “community organizer” his major cause was getting the asbestos out of a housing project. After 2 years of trying, the asbestos was still there when he left and is still there even now that he is a Senator and presumably has some pull to get things done.
    That’s it. Obama’s entire real world work resume. 145 days experience in the Senate with nothing to show for it, only 3 bills passed. Zero military experience, Quick trip to Middle East, Never physically worked a hard day in his life……Barack Obama barely qualifies to work in a McDonalds. We wont even mention his devotion to extremist, radical and racist religious views for which he was ingrained and worshipped for the past twenty years.Two years as a lawyer and only 14 minor trials. And two years as a “community organizer” with nothing accomplished.
    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out which one to chose does it?

  3. Whatever, but how many videos are out there about Obama and his Muslim faith, his hate red of white people, his ties to a terrorist, his so called friend Rev. Wright?
    All of these things are on the internet if sheeple would just take the time to really look.
    The really sad part is THEY WONT, they have been blinded by all the BS Nobama says.

  4. There is always a danger when you take a stand and have a record. Would you find him more acceptable if he had only voted “Present” on important or controversial issues?
    No matter McCain’s record, at least he has one.

  5. I know very well McCain is not a good choice in a President! He has changed his entire position on his views to win his party’s nomination, he has already said he can’t relate to the average American and that he doesn’t understand economics. He would rather run on slander and lies rather than the issues. Oh, and can’t forget about him being a POW. And what about him blowing up Obama’s fundraiser with Barbara, but just the other week, he had a similar fundraiser at one of his numerous houses….McCain is a liar and it would be a disaster to have him in office! OBAMA 08!!!!

  6. 1) we do not need a holiday to remember King….he was just that good.
    2) Bloomberg is a biased station
    3) Water boarding in not as cruel as killing civilians….9/11 ring a bell.
    4) I bet you are glad you parents did not take that stance before you were born.
    5) Gov needs to stay out of health care look at what they did to SS
    6)There is nothing wrong with being rich….he was poor at first….do you have somthing against success.
    7) Name you source.
    8) All polotics are followed by lobyist….Check the Obama Camp.
    9) Look at Obamas pastor……you loose this arguement as well.
    10) ?????
    11) You have no valid point.

  7. 1. Good. We got enough paid holidays for federal and state holidays. Do you have any idea of what it costs us?
    2. Better show some balls against Russia and China. And it’s better than showing them our backs.
    3. McCain knows what REAL torture is. Do you?
    4. RvW should be overturned. It is NOT a right. It was Liberal activism from the bench. It was a States right to regulate before and should be again.
    5. The Fed Gov has no business involved in health care beyond the VA.
    6. The money is his wife’s. Ask John Kerry about that.
    7. I want names. My guess they are the Rinos. As for Obama, he has ZERO experience or training to be the CIC. You understand the concept of ZERO don’t you?
    8. Is that the buzz word for this campaign? Lobbyists? Doesn’t sound as exotic as “Gravitas”. Big fu*king deal. Two of Obama’s top financial advisers are former top Fanny Mae execs.
    9. Ties with the Religious Right? That’s rich. Sorry, Obama with his 20 year relationship with the Rev Wright has got McCain beat hands down.
    10. The environment is WAY down my list right now. My only hope is to live long enough to see the whole myth of “Man Made” Global Warming totally debunked.

  8. 1. Martin Luther King Jr. was a radical and a plagiarist. (He plagiarized his doctoral thesis but nobody would call him on it because they would have been called racist) We should not honor the man.
    2. Bloomberg and Buchanan…two extremely radical sources.
    3. Waterboarding is NOT torture. Way to go Senator McCain.
    4. He is right. He supports the baby’s right to life, not the mother’s right to murder.
    5. The children’s bill that he voted against was WAY TOO overboard and he supported Bush’s expansion of the SCHIP, but not by as much as the liberals who wanted to hand health care to the middle class and illegals.
    6. His WIFE is incredibly wealthy and they have a pre-nup. Who cares if they own 8 homes? I own 3, but I give a LOT of money to charity…am I a bad person? The solution to the housing crisis IS to get a second job and cut your spending. I spent 8 years with no phone, no cable, putting less than 1000 miles/year on my piece of crap car to start my business and build my estate. Americans today do not know sacrifice and do not even know what poverty is.
    7. Of course you cite an unnamed Senator.
    8. Do not give that BS about lobbiests and special interests. Obama is also beholden to lobbiests and special interests. We will not have presidential candidate who is not.
    9. Unlike Obama, when McCain heard of their radical views, he denounced them. Obama waited until Wright threw him under the bus before he would denounce the man. You really should drop this one…it makes you look dumb.
    10. I would score a 0 from the League of Conservative Voters, too. And I conserve more than any liberal I know.
    What do you know about Obama?
    1. Racist – his association with a church built on black liberation theology for over 20 years should be enough to convince you, but his own words in his first two books spend a lot of time declaring his racist feelings, then rationalizing them.
    2. Socialist – A quick read of his voting record will prove that.
    3. Racist wife – Listen to the pig speak. (I call all racists pigs)
    4. Associates with criminals – Rezko
    5. Associates with terrorists – Ayres
    6. Associates with racists, Wright, Sharpton, Farrakhan
    7. Lies about faith – Claims to be a Christian, then states that he believes that there are many paths to heaven. THESE TWO CLAIMS ARE OPPOSITE!
    8. Lies about being taught Islam – Claims to have NEVER been taught Islam, but has stated in his own books otherwise.
    9. Is Jimmy Carter all over again – check his socialist programs against Jimmy Carter’s. They are similar, but worse.
    10. Is the worst presidential candidate ever to run from any party – LET HIM WHO HAS EARS HEAR AND LET HIM WHO HAS EYES SEE! If you do not see this, you are not paying attention.
    ADDED: And if you are allergic to ignorance, you should be going out of your mind because of your allergy to yourself.

  9. You offer NO sources to your long rant of a post, so I am not going to put any stock in what you have to say.
    1. Yes, McCain voted against MLK day. So have a lot of people. He said that he regrets it–but his reasoning behind it is because there are so many damn federal holidays as it is, and why cheapen someone’s memory with a federal holiday?
    2. McCain didn’t want to go to Iraq in the first place. He was one of many who opposed invasion. I am sick of hearing this crap. And Pat Buchanan’s opinion isn’t one I would trust on any level.
    3. Our method of “waterboarding” is not anywhere near to the half drowning shit they do in China.
    4. Of course he doesn’t support a woman’s right to choose. He is very pro-life. He does feel, however, that in cases of rape and incest it’s okay. And he is a proponent of stem cell research. Btw, he said that he wants Roe v. Wade to be made irrelevant, NOT overturn it.
    5. Obama voted no on repealing partial birth abortion–twice. And I have not found anything on this bill you said he voted against. NEXT.
    6. His personal wealth has nothing to do with this election. If you want to talk about wealth in the Senate, let’s first look at John Kerry and his Heinz Heiress wife Theresa. And we can’t forget the Kennedys.
    7. His fellow Senators fear him because they know he will not always go along with the sheep. Big whoop. If I were up against him, I’d fear him too. And they KNOW what he will do with that veto power. He won’t let them get by with shit, as Bush has done all these years.
    8. ALL politicians take money from special interests. He wants to weed out the useless ones that aren’t doing anything but taking the tax payers’ money for granted (ie former politicians just hanging out and kowtowing to the parties)
    9. McCain has looked for ways to connect with the religious right–and why not? They are loyal voters. But he has not pandered to them by any stretch of the means. He is an Episcopalian and he can’t stop what some fruit loop evangelical says. Oh, and do you want to hear me rant about the good old Rev Wright, who was a mentor and like an uncle to your dear Obama–before he was scared that it might cost him votes? You DON’T want me to go there, do ya buddy?
    10. Don’t get me started on his environmental record. He has a huge following amongst environmentalist groups and co-sponsored a comprehensive energy bill through the Senate three times. The League of Conservative Voters? LOL. He sponsored a bill on greenhouse gas allowances and was the first Republican to sign onto onto reducing GHGS. He wants to make the EPA a cabinet department and he has a fairly good rating from the EPA on environmental issues.
    I know my candidate VERY well. I’ve even met with him on a few occasions while in Washington. I’ve supported him since I was a young Republican. And that is a lot more than some of these Obamabots, such as yourself, can say about your candidate.

  10. You’re reaching for an excuse. If you pile this list up next to reasons to not vote for Obama, it makes McCain look like a saint. Obama’s socialist, and worse, plans for our country are enough in it’s self to vote for anyone – anyone – but Obama.
    We cannot ignore his beliefs, his associates, his deceptiveness and his plan for America. It has been said that if he were white it would be all over. I agree. If he were everything he his, and has been, but white, the race would be over and he would be limping along with only socialists following him. Instead, he is black and he, of course, has the black vote, he has the socialists/Marxists, he has black sympathizers, he has the anti-Iraq war people, the young and foolish (we were all once young and foolish).
    Most of us who support McCain wish we had a better selection, but we don’t. So, it is has little to do with a vote for McCain. It has everything to do with a vote against socialism and foolish ideas and ideals.
    Because he will have a socialist leaning congress, I suggest everyone give this serious thought. Cuba fell for a similar ‘change’ message and they got Castro.

  11. Not only that but he had to go all the way to a portion of Alaska that you “can see Russia from your house” to find an obscure V.P. candidate to try to lure the die-hard “Hillary Clinton/any woman for President” voters away from Obama since he knew that in a one on one contest there was no chance of him beating Obama. Obscurity breeds curiosity and when the press starts looking for dirt they will find it. That’s why I laugh when the GOP says that people are being “mean” to Palin for asking questions about her “Trooper-gate” and why her husband is refusing to testify until after Nov. 4th….maybe its so that the crap doesn’t hit the fan before the election?? I think the way the voter blocks will fall will be: younger americans will vote for Obama, older americans (with money) will vote for McCain, older americans (without money) will vote for Obama, Minorities will vote for Obama, Die-Hard feminists will go with McCain, and what it will all boil down to which is wrong is who is able to throw the last handful of mud at the other candidate before the election for those votes from the people who might as well be trying to hit a white rabbit in a snow storm when they enter the voting booth. You all know the ones…they don’t follow the news, listen to debates, etc…they walk in and break out the “enie meanie miny moe” decision making process…like the movie swing vote shows America…it all can come down to one idiot giving us 4 years of stupidity no matter which side you are on.
