John McCain has been one of the most corrupt politicians in the history of the Senate. He was deeply involved in the Keating Five scandal, where he showed favoritism to a disreputable savings and loan. Favoritism to dishonest S&Ls led to a financial crisis and a taxpayer bailout of over $200 billion.

McCain's pro Iraq war stance is an extreme example of his political corruption. It proves that he is completely bought and paid for by campaign contributions from Big Oil, mercenary corporations, and other war profiteers. But, what about personal greed? Here's an explanation of why a kept man like "Keating Five" McCain favors the rich over the middle class.

"Most working families today do not have homes that have anywhere near ten rooms. John McCain has ten houses. Many working people in America have to work two and three jobs to provide for their families and pay their car loans. John McCain hops on a private jet. Is it any wonder why McCain champions a George Bush agenda of cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy, helping oil companies turn record profits, and leaving working families to fend for themselves? McCain's velvet world leaves him utterly unprepared to make the tough choices we need to restore the middle class and ensure that everyone in America has quality, affordable health insurance."

- Andy Stern, President, Service Employees International Union (SEIU)

Brave New Films did a video showing McCain's personal wealth (OK, his wife's personal wealth) and his contempt for middle class Americans who are suffering under policies that make McCain richer.



John McCain is a true sleaze. His policy positions, including his desire to perpetuate Bush's tax cuts for the rich, are based on the McCain's personal portfolios, not the national interest. He thinks of the rest of us as the little people.

  1. Thanks for posting that video. I'm hoping everyone will get the word out about Bush McCain's bull shit.

  3. I wish I was in McCain's Middle Class. $4 million a year. I know it would be tough to get by, but I'd be willing to give it a go. But not sure I could handle an extra million and become rich.

     
  4. J James Says:
  5. McCain did say that he considered $5 million dollars to be the starting point for the 'wealthy' classification.

    I am SO hoping he picks ol' Mitt Romney as his running mate. I've missed the creepy vacant look in those eyes.

  7. It does my heart good to see how fulfilled McCindy is that she gets to fly her own plane. Ugh.

  9. It's interesting, and predictable, how everyone in the country knows about Edwards' affair. What if just as many people learned that their "straight talking war hero" cheated on his first wife Carol for the last nine months he lived with her.

    Our elitist, aristocratic, favorite son of the military industrial complex applied for a marriage license before his divorce was final.

    Johnny McCheat confessed his moral failure was his "failed first marriage". Yes, it was the marriage's failure, not his philandering with a rich blonde bimbo.

    I guess since he's a "war hero" he's entitled to his double standard. Besides, that was a long time ago. He's forgotten about it and moved on. The media is happy to oblige and do the same.

     
  10. McCain is one of the most corrupt politicians around. I well remember the savings and loan scandal How can so many people be duped by him?

  12. monkey: I see you embedded the video on your blog too. Politics makes strange embedfellows. (The libhomo ducks for cover after that joke.)

    Dave Dubya: Good point about right wing corporate media bias.

    robert: I would have to win the lottery to be in McCain's middle class.

    j james: If they put a non-Christian like Romney on the ticket, some fundies will stay home on election day.

    pagan: Well, considering how miserable Ms. McCain is when she is campaigning, maybe we shouldn't begrudge her this one pleasure.

    OK, who am I kidding? Of course, we should begrudge her of it.

    minnesota: If the corporate media's owners weren't some of the same people corrupting "Keating Five" McCain, then maybe we would know.

     
  13. Chandira Says:
  14. Maybe that Keating business is how he owns too many houses (7+, he can't keep track, apparently, and had to ask somebody how many houses he now owns), which is a slap in the face of the people that are caught in the housing crunch right now, isn't it?
    I don't think there's an end to political corruption on the right. And we seem so somnambulant about it all somehow as a nation, sleepwalking from one outrage to the next, all the while forgetting the last ones somehow in our sleep.

    I think Noam Chomsky was right, but he overestimated the average political memory stopping at 3 years, I think it's less than that even.
