The lies of McCain – the video.

| September 11, 2008 | 5 Replies

These dishonest and despicable ads show that McCain has no honor in modern times.   He has now expended all of whatever good will he once had.

The person who approved these ads cannot be trusted to assume a leadership position of any organization.  These ads are far beyond spinning.  They consciously misconstrue the facts.  They are lies.  What are we supposed to say to our children when they see people running for President and Vice-President who preach religion and then bald-faced lie?

As Arianna Huffington writes today, it’s time for Barack Obama to get angry.   If he fails to show anger, people are going to start wondering what’s wrong with him.   There is truly a way to justifiably and understandably show anger.   Now is the time to begin.

    Speaking of McCain's incompetence and lies, check out this interview by Rob Caldwell, a gutsy reporter for WCHS. If the media will just dare to push even a bit harder for DETAILS, McCain will be exposed as an empty bag of muddled rhetoric. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/11/mccain-i

    Check out this humorous interview of Barack Obama by David Letterman. Obama explains the lipstick on the pig statement, getting in a few jabs along the way. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/10/obama-ap

    OK, so the AP is starting to come around. I know that it's a low bar, but at least the AP is at least stating the obvious. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/11/analysis

    Just returned to Vermont from a trip to St. Louis. Apparently the Midwest gets different campaign ads than New England. I was appalled at the outright lies "approved" by John McCain. Now that I have returned home, some of the same ads are starting to run here, too.

    This is the ugliest campaign I've ever experienced.

    Edgar: I've driven cross country during several campaigns. County by county there are astonishing differences in how candidates are promoted and/or attacked.

    But you can guess what you will see by looking at by-county red-blue political maps, about which I posted here.
