Cindy McCain, Doing the Heavy Lifting Against Michelle Obama

We all know that Michelle was a smash on The View, today.

See below.

But when your campaign is tanking and you are in the weeds, what else do you do?


You go after controversy, or keep the controversy in the light.

This is exactly what Cindy McCain is doing. Even though First Lady Laura Bush gave Michelle a pass.

"I don't know why she said what she said," Mrs. McCain explains in an interview with ABC News' Kate Snow airing on "Good Morning America" Thursday. "Everyone has their own experience. I don't know why she said what she said, all I know is that I have always been proud of my country."

She had to make this statement and elaborate more on what Michelle said "that for the first time in my life I am proud of my country" statement, which if you watch The View was explained and overblown from the get-go.

I find this sleazy. Why? Because the McCain Campaign can not be happy with the news today of the post Hillary Clinton polling. All of these battleground states, so far, are not whistling dixie for him, and it has shown the strength of Barack Obama going forward to the fall.

Cindy McCain does not understand what struggle is if you asked her to spell it. A woman who is a 100M Beer Heiress, or Beer Queen, who jets her husband all over the country is the last to be pointing any finger at patriotism.

What about her own story? Her drug addiction? Her stealing from her AVMT for her prescription drug use? What about that?

To make matters worse, McCain admitted, she had stolen the drugs from the American Voluntary Medical Team, her own charity, and had been investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

What about Cindy McCain nee Hensley running around with a very married man with children? Is that respectable or acceptable behavior? I don't know about you, but my mother told me when I was single, if they are married, keep steppin'. Was there any empathy not only on Cindy's part but John McCain's for his wife Carol?
But when McCain returned to America in 1973 to a fanfare of publicity and a handshake from Richard Nixon, he discovered his wife had been disfigured in a terrible car crash three years earlier. Her car had skidded on icy roads into a telegraph pole on Christmas Eve, 1969. Her pelvis and one arm were shattered by the impact and she suffered massive internal injuries.

When Carol was discharged from hospital after six months of life-saving surgery, the prognosis was bleak. In order to save her legs, surgeons

had been forced to cut away huge sections of shattered bone, taking with it her tall, willowy figure. She was confined to a wheelchair and was forced to use a catheter.

Through sheer hard work, Carol learned to walk again. But when John McCain came home from Vietnam, she had gained a lot of weight and bore little resemblance to her old self.

Obviously, many feelings were put aside for selfish ones, and hey John McCain got what he wanted a "trophy wife".

And let us not step into Cindy's not so glamorous lie about baking cookies. I mean, I don't know about you, but does anyone even believe she knows a recipe for cookies? Sorry, she don't look the type.

So, now we have Cindy going on Good Morning America, tomorrow, to keep carrying the negative water.
In a rare move, Mrs. McCain also challenged Mrs. Obama's remark, saying as she introduced her husband at a rally shortly after Obama's remarks, "I'm proud of my country, I don't know if you heard those words earlier. I'm very proud of my country."

Well, I don't care for Cindy McCain, at all. I never thought much about going after family members, but this stinks of high heaven.

While she is busy pushing the Michelle controversy, she need to clean up her own house and tell her husband to stop calling her the "c" word. Yes, a youtube is blowing up and about to go viral as I type.

In the end, what is good for the goose is good for the gander, and that is politics in a nutshell. And if Cindy McCain want to continue to carry the negative water against Michelle Obama, let her answer those questions about her judgment and choices she made in her life. After all, it is relevant to being the next First Lady of this land.
