Lies, Fabrication, Sick, Cunning, Unscrupulous, that is McCain

I know many are caught up on Sarah Palin. You can read all you need about her, here. Just listen to Palin on national security, nuff said. There is so much documentation on her lies, thus far in this campaign; it just makes one shake their heads. I literally can not keep up!!

In the end, this is about John McCain and how he and his campaign has just accepted all these lies trumped up about Obama, made them public, repeat them as true, and just don't give a mickey-fickey if we like it or not.

Enter; the electorate is stupid, frame. This is what the McCain Campaign is running on.

Secondly, the McCain Campaign is running against the press. Joe Scarborough stated that he did not think this strategy would work, but it is a wait and see. The bloggers have been effective in documenting and pushing "McCain is a liar" narrative, forcing the McCain Campaign to respond. But they have been tepid, at best. The explanation that McCain has given about the lies and smears against Obama is this, "I think the tone of this whole campaign would have been very different if Senator Obama had accepted my request for us to appear in town hall meetings all across America, the same way Jack Kennedy and Barry Goldwater had agreed to do so. I know that because I’ve been in enough campaigns." As if this would not have happened anyway? Like this is a solid explanation to lie away? Again, expecting the electorate to be stupid and believe whatever comes out of this campaign's mouth.

The media has also been called out for not doing their PAID JOBS, which is reporting the news accurately. It took the women from "The View" to make McCain squirm on that couch. Expecting this would be a nice, touchy-feely interview, turned into why are you lying and stating "I approve this message?" When you, John McCain know this ad was a lie! Or Ari Melber on MSNBC to call out Brad Blakeman, Republican hack for backing an outright liar. Recently, there have been some hard hitting media pieces on McCain's untruthful ads, but my concern is this, "Is the public hearing this or listening?"

That for me is the million dollar question.

In closing, John McCain has traded his stature as a honorable, straight-talk, honest candidate to one who will do or say anything to win. Overall, he is misleading, a fraud, and a fabricator, corrupt, crooked, shady, deceitful and dishonest.

If McCain is all of that, throw Sarah "the empty skirt" along in that pile, too.

Greenspan Says McCain Tax Plan Needs Corresponding Budget Cuts
Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said the country can't afford $3.3 trillion of tax cuts proposed by Republican presidential nominee John McCain without corresponding spending reductions.

Greenspan, a lifelong Republican and longtime friend of McCain, said today on Bloomberg Television's ``Political Capital With Al Hunt'' that ``I'm not in favor of financing tax cuts with borrowed money.''

McCain has said he would balance the cost of most of his tax cuts with budget reductions, while providing few details beyond eliminating earmarks and other pork-barrel spending, which have totaled about $171 billion since 2001. Democratic nominee Barack Obama is proposing fewer tax cuts and more ambitious spending programs.

Greenspan said he has ``mixed feelings'' about a second government economic-stimulus bill after the U.S. provided a $168 billion package in February. While such an action may increase the budget deficit at a time when spending on retirees' medical benefits is about to cause ``big'' financial problems, it may also boost economic growth, he said. continue
