Guest Guest Posted October 21, 2008 Report Share Posted October 21, 2008 You have not heard about these stories because unlike his opponent, Barack Obama has class and a presidential temperament. I don’t. Therefore, let’s expose John McCain’s connections to terrorists, thieves, convicted felons, Nazis and Saddam Hussein. The Keating scandal is well-known. In the late 1980s, John McCain was reprimanded for “poor judgment” as one of the Keating five: five Senators who had lobbied Congress from within to pave the way for Keating to bilk the American people in what is known as the S&L debacle. McCain admits that this is the low point in his public career. That’s open to question, but check out these links. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/03/24/...olitics_3964240 http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/1989-11-29/...-keating-five/1 http://www.azcentral.com/news/election/mcc...o-chapter7.html What most people do not know is that the Keating five scandal is only the tip of John McCain’s ethical iceberg. Liddy held a fundraiser for McCain in 1998, and McCain appeared on Liddy’s radio talk show in 2007. (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/carl-bernstein/ayers-and-the-mccain-g-go_b_134256.html ) Liddy is a convicted felon who served four years in prison for his role in Watergate. He was in charge of plotting the break-in (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._Gordon_Liddy ). He has said publicly that he was prepared to kill someone if necessary to carry out the illegal Ellsberg break-in (http://mediamatters.org/items/200810040004 ), has admitted to plotting the murder of journalist Jack Anderson (http://www.nytimes.com/2005/12/18/national/18anderson.html ), admitted to plotting to kill Howard Hunt to silence him (http://www.veteransforcommonsense.org/print_blog.cfm?bID=4879 ), admitted to plotting to firebomb the Brookings Institution (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._Gordon_Liddy ) and to kidnap people he called “leftist guerrillas” at the Republican National Convention in 1972 (http://turn-left.hypocrisy.com/2008/10/09/what-was-that-biblical-saying-about-casting-the-first-stone/ ). In other words, Liddy is a terrorist. So what’s the difference between Liddy and Ayres? McCain has an ongoing association with Liddy during this presidential campaign. http://www.nowpublic.com/world/john-mccain...-g-gordon-liddy http://foolocracy.com/2008/10/mccains-old-...ical-terrorist/ So if McCain wants to talk about associating with terrorists, then why is he palling around with G. Gordon Liddy? We’re just getting started. In the early 1980s, McCain sat on the board of an organization comprised of Nazi collaborators who eventually were instrumental in the Iran-Contra scandal that tarnished Reagan’s presidency. http://crooksandliars.com/john-amato/mccai...orld-freedom-na http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/10/06/w...u_n_132470.html http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/archives/...8_10/015061.php So why is this different from Obama serving on a community board with William Ayres? Because the community board was dedicated to education. Ayres’ previous activities had nothing to do with it. By contrast, illegal activity was the business and purpose of the so-called U.S. Council for World Freedom, and there was John McCain sitting on its board. The head of McCain’s transition team (as though he’ll need one) is none other than William Ayres, who lobbied for years on behalf of Saddam Hussein. You think I’m making it up? Check it out. http://www.kansascity.com/news/politics/story/848528.html http://crooksandliars.com/john-amato/mccai...-my-timmons-sto http://www.opednews.com/maxwrite/diarypage.php?did=10107 http://beltwayblips.com/story/breaking_mcc...ied_for_saddam/ So, Resmuglicans, you want to play this game?
