McCain Unfit to Lead

Palin’s wild claim and assertion yesterday about Obama have been proven false, but that is not any surprise. The McCain campaign, the Republican Party, and John McCain are so desperate to retain power that, in the face of sinking poll numbers, will say and do anything to win an election that is being to look more and more that they are destined to lose.

Of course, John McCain sent out Palin to do his dirty work, because he is too afraid to do it himself. However, it does not let him off the hook for continuing the spread of already discredited information. America does not need McCain and his lying, extremist running mate Palin, as they are proving daily that they are not fit for office. Their responses on the issues, any of them, flip flop daily depending on the news cycle, and now they are so desperate they are repeating gross misinformation about Obama. These are not leaders, and John McCain is the best example of bad leadership and bad judgment. John McCain is no patriot, John McCain is a fool.

In the 1960s, Ayers was a founding member of the radical Weather Underground group that carried out a string of bombings of federal buildings, including the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol, in protest against the Vietnam War. The now-defunct group was labeled a “domestic terrorist group” by the FBI, and Ayers and his wife, Bernadine Dohrn — also a Weather Underground member — spent 10 years as fugitives in the 1970s. Federal charges against them were dropped due to FBI misconduct in gathering evidence against them, and they resurfaced in 1980. Both Ayers and Dohrn ultimately became university professors in Chicago, with Ayers, 63, now an education professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Obama’s Chicago home is in the same neighborhood where Ayers and Dohrn live. Beginning in 1995, Ayers and Obama worked with the non-profit Chicago Annenberg Challenge on a huge school improvement project. The Annenberg Challenge was for cities to compete for $50 million grants to improve public education. Ayers fought to bring the grant to Chicago, and Obama was recruited onto the board. Also from 1999 through 2001 both were board members on the Woods Fund, a charitable foundation that gave money to various causes, including the Trinity United Church that Obama attended and Northwestern University Law Schools’ Children and Family Justice Center, where Dohrn worked.

CNN’s review of project records found nothing to suggest anything inappropriate in the volunteer projects in which the two men were involved.

Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt told CNN that after meeting Obama through the Annenberg project, Ayers hosted a campaign event for him that same year when then-Illinois state Sen. Alice Palmer, who planned to run for Congress, introduced the young community organizer as her chosen successor. LaBolt also said the two have not spoken by phone or exchanged e-mail messages since Obama came to the U.S. Senate in 2005 and last met more than a year ago when they encountered each other on the street in their Hyde Park neighborhood.

The extent of Obama’s relationship with Ayers came up during the Democratic presidential primaries earlier this year, and Obama explained it by saying, “This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood … the notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago — when I was 8 years old — somehow reflects on me and my values doesn’t make much sense.”

    So, nonconformer, you a blog the perpetuates lies. That is very unChristian too. You may want to take your own advice that you wrote on the blog you posted.

  2. John McCain says:

    Bullshit, I am ready to lead.
    I am a natural born leader.

  3. John McCain says:

    thenonconformer is a decent Christian.
    We need guys like him. Someone has to gas those muslims for our sake.
    I’ll make him secretary of ethnic cleansing when I’m president.

    So does that mean that in 30 years it will be OK to hang out with Osama? Same thing isn’t it?

  5. Matt says:

    LOL, nice SSG.

    But really, why is it okay to try to link McCain to Bush, but not okay to try to link Obama to Ayers? Why is it okay to point out Palin’s lack of experience, but not okay to point out Obama’s lack of experience? Why is it okay to link McCain to Big Oil, but not okay to link Obama to ACORN?

    This election just sucks. Too much name calling, too much double-standards.

    Before I answer specifically I have to ask “Are you fucking serious, Matt?”

    But really, why is it okay to try to link McCain to Bush, but not okay to try to link Obama to Ayers?

    Because – as the voting record shows John McCain has voted more WITH George Bush than against. The policies, though very few, that are on the table from McCain are very similar to Bush policy. Obama and Ayers? Ayers lives in the same neighbourhood, Ayers activities were almost 40 years ago, when Obama was 8 – Obama has said, openly, that he condemns what Ayers may have done – remember the charges against Ayers were dropped so no trial, no conviction etc – I hope Ayers sues Palin and the GOP.

    Why is it okay to point out Palin’s lack of experience, but not okay to point out Obama’s lack of experience?

    What experience does she have – now really think about it? She was a mayor of a town of a few thousand people – and she left them in debt. She was/is a Governor of a State with 700k people and comes out with comments that would, in several other nations around the world, have her locked up for psychiatric analysis, but not in the US. She is under investigation by her own State, for Christ’s sake. By all means question Obama’s experience that’s fine – I don’t know anyone saying it isn’t – but it is obvious, even to more and more pubs that he will be a better leader than McCain or Palin. But if you are going to question his, you have to question McCain’s.

    Why is it okay to link McCain to Big Oil, but not okay to link Obama to ACORN?

    Huh? ACORN

    There is no comparison to make for God’s sake!

    This election just sucks. Too much name calling, too much double-standards.

    I have blogged that this election is getting to be a farce – but if you do look at the news you will find that it is the pubs who are now going on the attack rather than speaking about issues and what they will do better for the American people. Their words, Matt – not Obama’s or the Democrats – Republicans who are a part of John McCain’s campaign.

    You ask McCain and his campaign to stay on issue and debate that. See how far YOUR voice gets heard. Ask him, McCain, to stay on topic and not go into attack the person mode – see how far that gets you. You and I both know that the last refuge for McCain now is to lies more than he has and get vicious with it – is that how you want to vote for a president? If so I pity you.

  7. John McCain says:

    No, I NEVER voted with Bush!
    I don’t even know that guy! Who is this?
    Don’t believe all those lies!
    Vote for me.

  8. SSG T says:

    I agree with ya Matt. But I also agree with some of what Will said. This goes to my first comment. McCain is linked to Bush. Fine. But I am pretty sure there are several Dems in the same boat. Along with the rest of the pukes in Washington that passed all the bullshit legislation that we have had. Republicans have not had control of the house for a few years now and some how garbage still gets by. doesn’t sound to me like McCain is the only one! This voting thing……STOP ALREADY!!! McCain voted with his party on some things and not with them on others. AT LEAST HE VOTED!!! How many times did Obama vote present? OOOPPPSSSS we can’t talk about that. But then again, why are we talking about any of this. This is the biggest joke of an election that I can remember. RonPaul for PRESIDENT!!!(why not at least he is different) Get over the stupidity and start looking at what is BEST for this country as a WHOLE not as each individual. And just we are all on it, BOTH sides are using the same old political adds that they said they wouldn’t use so get over it.

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
