Keep tabs on the REAL John McCain:
Send us your videos
By Jesse Haff - October 11

John McCain disapproves of any dissent of President Bush's decisions and blames problems we are facing today on former President Clinton. The last refuge of incompetents.

John Kerry has never flip-floped, has he? He was for the war before he was against it. And thank you Bill Clinton, for allowing North Korea to build nuclear weapons. North Korea says' We won't build them", and while Bill was stuffing cigars inside interns, he says, "ok, we believe you":,,,,what a lame, careless President.

Nobody is saying that Kerry never changed his positions. . . hell for that matter what elected offical hasn't. As for thanking President Clinton for where we are today with North Korea is beyond crazy but just another republicant that is not wanting to accept part of the blame and point fingers. I also have never read or heard the quote " ok, we believe you" line anywhere period. Bill was an awesome President and our current Prez and followers will ALWAYS be envious of his accomplishments.

As John Stewart correctly observes, "Bush would rather be sure than right."

I like how Republicans constantly, when attacked, go straight for the Monica Lewinsky could be any topic..."Why is Bush fueling an Oil War to make his coherts rich, while killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people"

Republican response: "Well Clinton shacked up with an intern"

Typical, the right hates and fears what we refer to on the left as "facts".

Here is a copy of my letter to the Senator .

I didn't see Campaign Finance Reform on the list of subjects !
What has happened to Senator McCain's priorities ?

I am so sorry to see the direction Senator MacCain has taken . I was a supporter for him from the beginning and still have my McCain for president bumper-sticker on my car but last week I covered it up after 8 years of displaying it proudly (it was the only bumper sticker on my car) .

I think the Political Operatives that are manipulating the McCain campaign are heading in the wrong direction .

b.t.w. I covered up my McCain 2000 bumper-sticker with an "end this war" sticker , however I still think Campaign Finance Reform is our biggest problem .

There is not an ass in the country that I will not lick in order to be elected president.

Do any of these proto-fascist-neo-cons ever read the Constitution/ Have they ever heard about the Constitution? Why do they think they are above all laws? It is our DUTY to question the government and NEVER TRUST THEM! The invasion and occupation of Iraq was illegal, immoral and horrible for the US and Iraq. Why the hell can't this cabal be made accountable and impeached? We The People with sense have had enough and know that to blindly follow the rulers is just plain nuts. We had a sort of democracy and what is left of it is being shredded right along with the Constitution, Bill Of Rights, Geneva Conventions, international laws and treaties, civil liberties, Habeas Corpus and any laws these lunatics don't like. Wake up Americans. Question authority and get active. If you are not are not paying attention!
