McCain's guilt by association

McCain's guilt by association

Post by tamra » Thu Oct 09, 2008 9:17 am

Todd Palin - wanted to succeed from the Union, that's how anti-American Palin is

Charles Keating - this was not a friend in passing or someone McCain lived near, but someone McCain chose to vacation with AND do regular business with, but then was cleared by the senate of "wrong doing".

Sen. Byrd, Sen. Lott, Sen. Thurmond, Sen. Helms, Ron Bonjean, David Duke - white racists who served alongside with McCain that McCain did absolutely nothing about and McCain also sent up praises for them all, but don't know about David Duke.

an Iran-Contra group with Neo Nazi ties.

and the biggest guilt by association: Cindy McCain, the woman he left his wife for. Cindy should be in prison for a drug conviction now, but $$ and power helped her avoid this.

oh and Elisadumb Hasselbeck - a clueless bitch who makes McCain look out of touch, unconcerned and racist.

but apparently, Obama was to check the record of everyone who did something when he was 8 years old even before he moved into the neighborhood. @.@

tamra,
WHAT IF……

Obama/Biden vs McCain/Palin, what if things were switched around?

.....think about it.

Would the country's collective point of view be different? Could racism be the culprit? (see attached pic)

Ponder the following:

What if the Obamas had paraded five children across the stage, including a three month old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage daughter?

What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review?

What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?

What if McCain had only married once and Obama was a divorcee?

What if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after a severe disfiguring car accident, when she no longer measured up to his standards?

What if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a long affair while he was still married?

What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted to pain killers but also acquired them illegally through her charitable organization?

What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five?
(The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings
and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)

What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker?

What if Obama couldn't read from a teleprompter?

What if Obama was the one who had military experience that included discipline problems and a record of crashing seven planes?

What if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly, on many occasions, a serious anger management problem?

What if Michelle Obama's family had made their money from beer distribution?

What if the Obamas had adopted a white child?

You could easily add to this list. If these questions reflected reality, do you really believe the election numbers would be as close as they are?

This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and maximizes potential positive qualities in one candidate and emphasizes negative qualities in another when there is a color difference.

Educational Background:
Barack Obama:
Columbia University - B.A. Political Science with a Specialization in International Relations.
Harvard - Juris Doctor (J.D.) Magna Cum Laude

Joseph Biden:
University of Delaware - B.A. in History and B.A. in Political Science
Syracuse University College of Law - Juris Doctor (J.D.)

Vs

John McCain:
United States Naval Academy - Class rank: 894 of 899

Sarah Palin:
Hawaii Pacific University - 1 semester
North Idaho College - 2 semesters - general study
University of Idaho - 2 semesters – journalismhttp://forums.richardpryor.com/forums/reply.cfm?thread=60614&forum=12&replyto=60614
Matanuska-Susitna College - 1 semester
University of Idaho - 3 semesters - B.A. in Journalism

Education isn't everything, but this is about the two highest offices in the land as well as our standing in the world. You make the call.

tamra,
The mud is being thrown in both canidates faces. Nazi VS Socialism in an election. CNN says Barrack has 264 e-votes,and needs 6 more to win. I will not get my hopes to high because I know what happened to Al Gore. But the bad economy might be a blessing and help give Barrack that extra boost to win big without being cheated, that Al did not have . We can only hope. :)

Hypocrisy should be a religion the way people cling to it.
