Drag McCain Away

Is McCain demented or outright corrupt?

McCain tells us: “American business pays the second-highest business taxes in the world…”

The truth: At page 42 the Treasury Department reports America has the second lowest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world. The Congressional Quarterly reports, “Most corporations, including the vast majority of foreign companies doing business in the United States, pay no income taxes.”

McCain seeks to freeze spending on everything but war, vets and entitlements. But discretionary spending is at its lowest levels in a generation and soon the lowest since the 1930s Hoover administration.

No one can explain this!

NPR: Given what you’ve said Senator, is there an occasion where you could imagine turning to Governor Palin for advice in a foreign policy crisis.

McCain: I’ve turned to her advice many times in the past… and I’ve already turned to Governor Palin particularly on energy issues and I’ve appreciated her background and knowledge on that and many other issues…. a broad variety of issues from her worldview to threats that we face, to radical Islamic extremism, to specific areas of the world. I’m very proud of her, and proud of the knowledge and background that she has.

The nation is dumbfounded.

The former chairman of the Republican National Committee is dumbfounded.

“Obviously, in a McCain Administration, she will not have much of a role in foreign policy”

Haley Barbour, Mississippi governor and McCain friend says about the Alaska Governor’s foreign policy capability, “It is honest to say, though, if I live in the state closest to Russia, I probably have got more sensitivity. I live in a state on the Gulf of Mexico, I got more sensitivity to hurricanes than people in Kansas.”
