McCain – Republican Royalists Re-visited

The Loquacious Liaison League & Loyal Lobbyists

“We fear McCain is much more dangerous than more of the same.”

Clearly the U.S. Constitution provides for the lobbying of Congress, and to that point, the mjgramm.jpgprotection of  lobbying seems to have mystically transformed itself into protection of lobbyists. For instance, one of architects of the type of unbridled financial deregulation that has indisputably led to our national mortgage disgrace is former Senator Phil Gramm (R-Texas) Co-Chair of McCain’s presidential campaign. Read Politico here.

fiorina.jpgAdd to that mix, conferees such as Carly Fiorina, who last was scene riding the rails out of Silicon Valley with a boxcar full of dough after causing a revolution at HP that set the company back 10 years.  Not only did she manage to alienate the talent at acquired Compaq, Inc., she pleaded for patience with her branded value-added integrators while her henchman began violating non-compete agreements and offering the integrators customers cheaper deals if they did business directly with HP.

And just to add to the list of lobbyists that performed hawking acts for EADS (European hoover.jpgAeronautic and Defence Co.) and now strategically placed among the McCain election campaign.  (A recent article dicussing McCain’s role in the Pentagon’s choice of Airbus to displace US Based Boeing to build the next military tanker plane here) and we can see a seond coming of the Royalists that could spin FDR in his grave. John McCain, while not as lucid as Herbert Hoover, does share his lack of tact, as evidenced by his Gregorian chant speaking style which is compounded by his lackluster thinking style.  We fear McCain is much more dangerous than more of the same.

Ridiculous Comparisons – McCain and Clinton Share the Stage

“… claimed to misspeak, as opposed to being mistaken”

If you want to see the real John McCain – search the Internet for dialogues that can’t bemccainhat.jpg rehearsed and speeches that aren’t written by others – so that you can get a glimpse of the his lack of information, knowledge of history and feel for governance.  For instance, recently, although soft-balled by the corporate media, John McCain equated the occupation and invasion of Iraq with the continued US presence in Japan, Korea and Germany.

We were dumbstruck with the lack of critical challenge from the cowering corporate media in this barely conscious allegory, instead of the obvious comparison to Viet Nam.  A war that was not victorious, an occupation that remained bloody and a political battle that empowered the military industrial complex pricisely the way President Eisenhower warned in his farewell address.

hillwideeyed.jpgIt is also our opinion that the Democratic Party’s lack of unity and Hillary Clinton’s recent symbolic embrace of her friend John McCain’s leadership, was a dangerous and offensive slap in the face not to her intended victim, Barack Obama, but to the Democratic party at large.  It is the Clinton Campaign’s ‘anything goes’ / ‘kitchen sink’ styled attack that reveals a similar danger in Hillary Clinton’s leadership style.

Recent gaffes about Bosnia and mistakingly promoting that her landing party was under attack or taking sniper fire during a trip in the late 90’s was characterized as misspeaking.hillarybosnia.jpg We beg to differ.  Misspeaking is when one mispronounces someone’s name, or attributes the wrong person to a quote.  Both the person and the quote exist in fact.  Misremembering is something quite different and should be subject to every scrutiny on this matter and other matters where she has claimed to misspeak, as opposed to being mistaken. Mistaken is a mild way of characterizing a little girl and flowers as sniper fire.

No one has suggested that she has to have combat experience to be able to capably be our Nation’s civilian Command-in-Chief.  We do think this was an attempt to further her claims of being tested.  While we understand that her campaign thought the tag-line would be a good tool against Obama’s relative newness on the National political scene, it has yet to be substantiated.
