Trust me, I work for the Government

Forward! Into the past with McCain.


Speaking of the past

KEATING FIVE:
McCain and four other (D) senators split $300,000 in campaign contributions from Keating

McCain got the most, $112,000. McCain’s wife and her father had invested $359,100 in a Keating shopping center in April 1986 The paper also reported that the McCains, made at least nine trips at Keating’s expense. Three of the trips were made during vacations to Keating’s Bahamas home.

The other four senators were (D), but they are not running for president under the straight talk banner.

We can see how McCain looked in the past. Now let’s see how well he could predict the future.

Who said the following?

“There’s not a history of clashes that are violent between Sunnis and Shiahs. So I think they can probably get along.”

” I believe that the success will be fairly easy.

“We’re not going to get into house-to-house fighting in Baghdad. “

“But the point is that, one, we will win this conflict. We will win it easily.”

“But I believe that the Iraqi people will greet us as liberators.”

“It’s clear that the end is very much in sight.”

“This is a mission accomplished..”

What does McCain stand for? Maybe the better question is will he still stand for the same thing next week?

1. Social Security Privatization.
2. Raising – and Slashing – Defense Spending
3. First Term Balanced Budget Pledge.
4. . The Estate Tax
