McCain: Bush Warmed Over



Opps. McCain voted twice against an amendment offered by Sen. Hillary Clinton in 2005 and 2006 to set up an independent commission to look into the government's actions regarding Katrina. McCain also told the reporter
I also voted against one of the bills that came down that was loaded with pork barrel projects that had nothing to do with New Orleans too. It had billions for projects and programs that had nothing to do with the recovery of the city of New Orleans.
This simply isn't true. The Clinton Amendment would have allocated $3M for the independent investigation, but no money for any other project.

Barack Obama's campaign sent an email to reporters in response to McCain's blatant falsehoods:
"Whether he simply wasn't aware of his voting record again or he was intentionally misleading the people of Louisiana, John McCain certainly isn't offering us 'leadership you can believe in.' "
The email quoted McCain, and gave the dates and Senate numbers of the votes. This email, along with Senator McCain's gaffes, put the McCain campaign on the defensive. Their tactic? Accuse the Obama campaign of "the same old negative attacks that the American people are so sick and tired of."

I don't know about you, but I am actually sick and tired of being lied to. The Bush Administration has managed to destroy everything I hold dear about my country through a policy of lying even when the truth would be easier, even when the truth would be in their own best interests. It seems to me that McCain is patterning himself on the Bush/Cheney method - lies, damn lies, and more damn lies.

Yeah, but he's a maverick, The Maverick® in fact! His lies become truth simply through their inherent rebellious nature!

Randal, I'm a Maverick. I was made a Maverick in Australia, by a friend of mine who is a guide and a real Maverick. My status is based upon my lip gloss color, which is called "Orgasm" by Nars Cosmetics. McCain is just a pain in the arse.

Dude's senile.

DivaJood said...

Fred, senile would be a step up for McCain.

These asshats on the Republican side are mostly liars. I say kick out the whole lot of 'em. Well, maybe keep Chuck Hagel. At least he has integrity.

DivaJood said...

Robert, I truly hate the current batch of Republicans. Truly.

I am sorry i have been talking about this scum and the scum ha wants to replace and I am wearing out the term lying scums. They are so obvious and I am so irked that they could care less and will not stop.
Bush was warning Europe about Obama today. The idiot, I'm sure they can't wait. I can't wait until Obama and McCain go head to head and I am praying that Obama takes the scum up on it and declares he wants his forum then see what McCain the worm does. Obama will eat him up and McCain and Republican's are nervous!

Randal Graves said...

There's a lip gloss color called 'orgasm?' Perhaps you are the true master of the segue.

DivaJood said...

Jim, I can see it now:

Bush says "That Obama feller, he talks real smart, all y'all better watch out fer 'im."

Angela Merkle thinks "Thank god, an intelligent American who won't try to grope me."

Randal, lip gloss, lipstick, and cheek color. I am a Diva, after all.

Poor Angela Merkle.

"I don't know about you, but I am actually sick and tired of being lied to. "
Lady, I am so tired of being lied to, I could choke somebody.....but I don't know who to grab first - a Democrat or a Republican...(:

Diva
I am only going to say that is funny but true and yes you are. I have been following your correspondence. Good one!

DivaJood said...

Agi, I dunno, I think Angela Merkle might appreciate a fist bump over a Republican grope any day of the week.

TUA, perhaps deep breathing might help... ;)

Jim, I thought you'd enjoy that "exchange" between Shrub and the heads of Europe. And, yes I am.

great post...McCoot is not got his oars in the water...and I think they have not even been near the water for years now- he ain't okay....

( I am going to track his blunders every thursday....or I might have to do it daily)

DivaJood said...

Enigma, McCain is definately not the sharpest pencil in the drawer. And if you track his blunders every day, there won't be room for anything else in your blog!

Stella said...

DivaJood, I love your comment about Angela Merkle. (applause) I was embarrassed to be an American when that piece of crap grabbed her on the shoulders.

The woman is the Prime Minister of a powerful nation. That was one of the most ignorant, sexist displays... words fail me. Talk about a frat boy mentality.

McSame sickens me. Here's his voting record from Project Vote Smart. Wait until you see how "well" he did on women's issues.

DivaJood said...

Stella, McCain is as offensive as The Shrub has been as President. McCain's voting record is going to sink him, actually. While we won't have Russert to ask the hard questions, I believe there are enough reporters who will focus on his poor performance as Senator.
