    I appreciate you lobbing softballs. Here are some campaign ads.

    Interviewer: How old are you?

    John McCain: Thirty one.

    Interviewer: What is your rank in the army?

    McCain: Lt. Commander in the Navy. … hit by either missile or anti-aircraft fire, I’m not sure which. And the plane continued straight down and I ejected and broke my leg and both arms.

    Interviewer: And your official number?

    McCain: 624787



    Another:

    “A few days ago, Senator Clinton tried to spend one million dollars on the Woodstock concert museum. Now my friends, I wasn’t there. I’m sure it was a cultural and pharmaceutical event. I was, I was tied up at the time.”

    And another:

    “One night, after being mistreated as a POW, a guard loosened the ropes binding me, easing my pain.

    “On Christmas, that same guard approached me, and without saying a word, he drew a cross in the sand. We stood wordlessly looking at the cross, remembering the true light of Christmas.”


    A man who endured all this, and who will change his mind regarding torture is the worst sort of liar and snake imaginable. It shows cowardice not to hold your deepest convictions which McCain doesn't have.

    EDIT: INCLUDED LINK. Can't post it till I have more responses. I'll get back to Johnny El Floppo later.

    I think your trying to say (its kind of hard to interpret) that MCcain was for a windfall profit tax on oil companies? If so please post a link to this assertion...
    He has never supported a windfall profit tax...


    Dipshit if you did any research, you would realize that the rich actually paid more under the Bush tax cuts.

    Industry Gushed Money After Reversal on Drilling

    By Matthew Mosk
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Sunday, July 27, 2008; Page A10

    Campaign contributions from oil industry executives to Sen. John McCain rose dramatically in the last half of June, after the senator from Arizona made a high-profile split with environmentalists and reversed his opposition to the federal ban on offshore drilling.
    Oil and gas industry executives and employees donated $1.1 million to McCain last month -- three-quarters of which came after his June 16 speech calling for an end to the ban -- compared with $116,000 in March, $283,000 in April and $208,000 in May.

    obama gets more money from oil company employees. mccain gets more money from the oil companies through lobbyists.

    Nothing illegal about it. Just expect McCain to work in the best interest of Corporations and Obama will work in the best interests of American workers.

    Actually, Obama will work for both Corporations and Labor. You will probably point to that and say, "see, he's no different" but you will be clueless about how he is at the same time working for the middle class. That's because you don't know what you are talking about. :eusa_shhh:
