Hey, remember when we were growing up and the older people would always say “Treat others the way that you want to be treated”? Well, a couple of decades later for me and I see the truth in it. It’s absolutely hilarious that the McCain campaign has sought to try and diminish Barack Obama by bringing up an association with a guy he shared when he was 8 years old. At the same time, they’re using Palin to try and make an issue again out of the Jeremiah Wright situation. I can’t say that I really blame Palin too much in this situation. It is obvious now more than ever that she is just a role player in the situation and she lacks the judgement or integrity to stand up against McCain. Doesn’t sound like a Maverick VP huh? Anyways. While McCain’s campaign is introducing “guilt by association” into the political atmosphere by suggesting that Obama was palling around with terrorists, let’s look at comes up when we turn the lens back on McCain:
- The Keating 5? Questions abound about his judgement concerning economic matters. Maybe this is why he’s trying very hard to distract America away from questions about the economy.
- The Huffington Post states that “Since Sunday, Democrats have been buzzing about the re-revelation that during the 1980s, Sen. John McCain served on the board of a far-right conservative organization that had supplied arms and funds to paramilitary organizations in Latin America.” – A radical group that has become “has increasingly become a gathering place, a forum, a point of contact for extremists, racists and anti-Semites”.
- And Poor Palin keeps calling Obama a terrorist when she actively participated in events held by an Alaskan secessionist union – could that be considered elitist? Un-Patriotic? Borderline terrorism? Check out the video:
