The Moral Bankruptcy of John McCain

 

[...] One voter challenged him to explain how he'd continue paying for the estimated $720 million being spent on the Iraq war each day.

"Are you going to cut student loans?" she asked. "Are you going to cut Social Security? Are you going to raise taxes?"

McCain acknowledged the war's high cost but said the nation would be paying a higher price — the loss of more American lives — if it ended the war prematurely, because chaos and genocide would follow.

"It's going to be a heavy tax burden, but not nearly the burden we'd be paying in American blood had we surrendered in Iraq," McCain said. He added that he would not raise taxes but would eliminate wasteful spending. AP

$720 million a day is spent on the Iraq war, and McCain calls it justified? And he is going to find $720 million a day in "wasteful spending" to make up for it?

I'd add "Intellectually" to the things he bankrupt on.

All these sub-simian assholes who talk about us "surrendering in Iraq" act like the IRAQIS are the ones who STARTED this stupid war! Listen up, McCain. The U.S. INVADED IRAQ! We SHOULDN'T HAVE! Our stated goal was to depose Sadaam Hussein. We did that. HE'S FUCKING DEAD! So let's just say (once again) MISSION ACCOMPLISHED AND GET THE HELL OUT of the Pottery Barn, before we break whatever's left there and before we FINISH BREAKING THE AMERICAN BANK!

Not that I'm upset or anything.

I don't agree with you.

Slash taxes and watch the coffers grow. Works every time, you fools! Muahahahah!

Let me start by saying I would never vote for John McCain ... however, in 2004 he was the ONLY candidate talking about "corporate welfare." Billions of dollars are spent every year in handouts to corporations that already make a profit! They aren't bail outs, they are pure gravy. McCain has a history of taking this issue on. It's one of the few things I actually do admire about him.

Oh, and I love the photo Dr. Z.

One of the better depictions of "trickle down" economics, good Doctor.

Dr. Monkerstein: Ha! That's for darned sure. I don't care how much "new math" that you use, you can't recoup $720 million a day by cutting costs without hurtung the nation.

FranIAm: Yep. Yep. Yep.

Distributorcap: The whole Republican agenda is about taking from the poor and the middle class and putting it in the pockets of big business.

Madam Z: Ha! Get the hell out of the Pottery Barn, is right!

Wyldth1ng: OK.

Randal Graves: The only thing that is growning is the deficit and the deathtoll.

BAC: Before WWII, corporations paid almost half of the taxes in this country. Now they pay less than 5%. And in 2004 McCain looked a lot better than he does now. Now he is just a Bush flunkie. The old McCain has dried up and shriveled into the Republican landscape.

StonyPillow: Supply side economics always sides with the rich, that's for sure.

Yes, stonypillow (nice name btw,) I do not want what trickles from yonder spigot.

We've got to at least admire how he has stood up to his fellow Republicans on the torture thing, but I consider the murder of any mother's son torture, so he kinda undoes it all there for me. Oh and there's that waste of money resources thang. Yea, well, uh, there's really not much else I have here.

Maybe, he will stop the payment of all the useless politicians. Thats a start.

Second, I think that if he send the Bush administration in the frontlines, that would eliminate "wasteful" spending.

And last. I think that if the Bush administration was in the war, Dick Cheney could "win" it and Bush could get some war experience.

Note: Only in our dreams.

Freida Bee: He used to be a maverick, but now he is merely a dick.

Dr. Evil: Why Dr. Evil, that is my platform exactly!

Well, John's just bitter and frustrated.

Look at those little arms, he can't reach his tap.

Ack! I hadn't noticed. That actually explains a lot!

DR Z:

I think he's thinking of Medicare, Medicaid, public education, the NTSB, OSHA, and the NIH.

If that doesn't work, there are always China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, India, the UK, the EU, Switzerland, Japan and Canada.
