Behind the names that McCain spewed out of his mouth when Dr. Paul asked him about Bush's working group on the markets

Phil Gramm

and Warren Rudman

I received this from a gentleman on my meetup distribution Jason.

As you've seen in plenty of Youtube videos, John McCain made an idiot out of himself during the debate Thursday night when asked about President Bush's working group on the markets by Dr. Paul. He had no idea what Paul was talking about and his answer was rambling and reminded people of the Ms. South Carolina contestant who couldn't answer a question about students in America not being able to find Iraq on a map.

However, one point he was able to make clearly in all that mess was that there are two critical economic advisors to his campaign whom he would involve in these economic decisions - Warren Rudman and Phil Gramm.

Do yourself a favor and look both of these gentlemen up on Wikipedia and see just how insane it is for McCain to cite them as who he wants economic advice from.

So let me get this straight Mr. McCain - your two advisors either have been Democrats (Gramm) or played a key role in getting David Souter appointed to the Supreme Court (Rudman) where Souter proceeded to be the deciding vote in upholding Roe v. Wade. Not exactly staunch conservatives.

In the case of Gramm, he took in over $1,000,000 in campaign contributions from the Securities and Investment industry while he was chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. His wife was a director at ENRON and ENRON was a major contributor to his campaigns. Yeah that doesn't sound like a conflict of interest or anything.

Meanwhile, Rudman sits on the board of directors for Raytheon who is one of the largest military contractors in the world and also was on the board of directors of Collins & Aikman which filed for bankruptcy while he was on the board. Yes, let's listen to his economic views and policies. I wonder if he would advocate for more war?

Folks, McCain doesn't understand the economy (acknowledged by his own quotes in the Wall Street Journal that he then apparently forgot during the debate) so these are the guys he is going to turn to. As the economy grows in importance to voters, help explain to undecided people why Dr. Paul is the right candidate to turn the economy around. Show them his 4 point plan and then ask them if they would rather have that or if they want people like Phil Gramm and Warren Rudman running the economy of this country.

Is it just me...

Is it just me, or did McCain really remind you of Bush when he has no idea what he's talking about? He just kept throwing out names hoping the time would go by more quickly and he would look like he said something of significance.

Reminds me of the "tribal sovereignty" question that was posed to Bush and he said:
"Tribal sovereignty means that; it's sovereign. You're a -- you've been given sovereignty, and you're viewed as a sovereign entity. And, therefore, the relationship between the federal government and tribes is one between sovereign entities..."

People are so gullible

I have a friend that I keep trying to get through to. But every time I tell him something, his response is... that wasn't on the news or in the paper.

He's not the only one. If people don't see it on the news they don't believe it.

People have been so conditioned in this country to believe that we still have an honest and free press. And nothing could be further from the truth.

What really woke me up was the OJ Simpson trial. After watching a day's proceedings than listening to some talking head recap it. It left me scratching my head, wondering what proceeding they were watching, because nothing they said was accurate... it was all distorted.

After that, I no longer trusted anything the Old Media reported. For whatever reason, incompetence, shoddy work ethics, etc., they don't report the news accurately.

Yet, to most Americans, they are the end all, be all for where they look to get the so called "truth." Pretty sad, isn't it?

Heres whats nuts why did he menton cutting taxes it has nothing

I counted each of the questions asked

by Ron to McCain - There were 5 of them. McCain did not answer any of them, or even attempt to because he had no idea what Ron was talking about. Also, if you notice McCain does that frequently - rattling off name after name like we are impressed by that.

For the life of me, Honestly I cannot figure out why anyone supports this man. He is creepy, his face is emotionless, he makes blatent racist comments, and then laughs at his own JOKES, and he comes across as stupid. I just dont get it.

This information should be given to Romney

As it has come clear Mitt doesn't shy away from mud slinging I think this is exactly the type of ammo he could use against McCain.

I think the longer Mitt and Huckster are around the better for us - they wont win the nomination because of the obvious reasons.

This is TRUE

And I think it is part of the HQ Strategy!!

Executive Order 12631in 1988-WGFM

McCain didn't even know that the "advisors" he referenced are *on* the committee Ron Paul questioned. Oops!

This should be the DEAN SCREAM! (Actually, his burkha comment should have been before!)

"Barefoot in the kitchen"

That comment had to have been as offensive to others, both here and abroad, as "women should be barefoot in the kitchen" would have been to our female viewers-

Imagine that kind of joke during critical negotiations-

Or during TV debates being watched around the world:(

Blowback, anyone?


his ridiculous comment that night was implying that Ron Paul wants to trade with Al Quaeda!
He is not a moron, but most times when he is trying to weasel and squirm out of answering a question or telling the truth - he sure seems like a moron!

But it's worse than that. He is just another traitor selling out the American people.
