So why is it that none of this is being paraded around the mainstream media? Oh that's right, the NY Times tried to run with the stuff of scandal on McCain and they couldn't prove anything. Whereas the same mainstream media is given video takes of Obama's own words and they just give him a pass.
You talk about lobbyists and such, instead on innuendo please lay out the facts. I have supplied evidence of Obama in his own words about his affiliations with a known terrorist and racists. Where is the outcry of outrage at that? Oh that's right, Obama is the Messiah and can't do anything wrong. When he does though it is just a slip of the tongue, or it was a youthful indiscretion. What a double standard.
Show me where McCain has taken money like Obama and then we can talk about big bad Johnny. Until then, just admit that Obama is a power hungry Marxist who wants to take your money and give it to someone he thinks deserves it more.
Do you want to know about Cindy McCain's Shopping Mall deal with Keating? Or simply John McCain's dealings? Why don't you read the SENATE RECORD of Keating to grasp the details.
But you miss the point of this little exercise, as does bottom1. Folks like McCain and Obama are in a world where they meet hundreds if not thousands of folks that are of all stripes. Some good, some not so good. Keating was bad WHEN McCAIN DEALT WITH HIM, Ayers was bad, 30 YEARS before OBAMA DEALT WITH HIM. So the circumstances change.
Why hasn't NYT covered Keating or Ayers that much? My opinion is they have looked at both issues, see them as old, don't see them as SIGNIFICANT and move to the real issues of the day. ECONOMY, SOCIETY, FOREIGN POLICY and ENERGY.
The Swiftboaters are doing the same thing they did in 2004. Churning up half truths, innuendo and outright lies and trying to make things that are not true stick. You have fallen for it.
I bring up Keating simply as an object lesson of the past. It is something that could have been brought up DAILY. McCain was censured by the Senate for misdeeds. That is seldom ever done in that private club. Many say it was because Reagan was his sponsor that he got off lighter than the others. Who knows.
Mainstream media is trying to focus on the ISSUES. You should be too.
