US ad bashes McCain as 'hero of France'

A liberal American group Friday released an advertisement that rails on Republican White House nominee John McCain for backing a US Air Force decision to award a huge contract to Europe's Airbus.

"A message of thanks to John McCain from the French people," says the video ad, which is in French with English subtitles and was issued by the Campaign for America's Future, a self-described "progressive" think tank.

"John McCain, hero of France," reads a banner on the Arc de Triomphe in the opening scene, and later McCain is depicted as wearing a beret and a curly mustache.

"Thanks for helping the US military choose a French company, Airbus. Tens of thousands of jobs for the French and thousands fewer for Americans, ha, ha, ha!" it says.

"It's a great day for France. Long live John McCain and long live France."

The ad was issued the same day as a meeting between McCain and French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Paris.

McCain has been criticized by Democratic lawmakers for backing a legislative change in 2004 that allowed the deal to take place, and the liberal group cited press reports that said his aides had lobbied for EADS to win the deal.

You know how the ads say, "Talk to Chuck?"

Welp, here's a Chuck people should be listening to as well:

Hagel: A Defense Of The Surge That ‘Dismisses’ Over ‘900 Dead Americans’ Is Wrong
McCain says:
Quote:
The surge is succeeding and the key to it is not American presence, it’s American casualties and by any measure, we are succeeding and the political process is succeeding.


And Chuck (Hagel) says:
Quote:
On ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopolous today, Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) bluntly disagreed with McCain’s assessment of the surge’s success, saying it’s wrong to “dismiss” over “900 dead Americans since the surge” began as “success”:

We have lost over 900 dead Americans since the surge. Now if you want to dismiss that as ’success’ that would be your interpretation.

MSNBC debate: If McCain had showed up to Senate more, would he have avoided economy 'flip flop'?

Since the presidential campaign began last year, no remaining candidate has been more absent from their day job than Sen. John McCain.

The Arizona Republican has missed more than half of the votes in the Senate since January 2007. One MSNBC host is wondering whether the media-friendly GOP presidential candidate isn't getting a pass from the national press and if McCain would have a better grasp on the issues if he had bothered to show up more often.

"McCain has missed votes on everything from consumer product safety to the economy to defense for aid for injured vets and yet the media just seemed to let it pass as they obsess only over [Democrats Barack] Obama and [Hillary] Clinton," MSNBC's Dan Abrams said Tuesday, noting a report that McCain has missed 56 percent of Senate votes.

Abrams tied the absenteeism to McCain's shifting view of the US economy, noting the senator said in January that he thought everything would be fine before saying this week he agreed with Alan Greenspan's assessment that the economic trouble the country is facing is worse than at any point since World War II.

"The bottom line is if Obama or Clinton had made this kind of flip-flop on the economy, this would be the story plastered everywhere," he said. "And almost no one is talking about it
."


LOL! :cheese: If the average working American missed 56% of their job duties, what would be the result?

The Arizona State Constitution at the time of adoption was considered extremely progressive because it included recall and initiative clauses. Unfortunately, the US Supreme Court struck down the part of recall that effected Federal offices, Senator and Representative. This means we voters, McSame's bosses have no recourse. There had been some talk of forcing an office holder to resign a current position when seeking higher office when Democratic Governor Bruce Babbit ran for President but this talk disappeared when it became McSame under scrutiny. Barry Goldwater lost his Senate seat for four years when he was the Repugs nominee since he had been so critical of LBJ running for VP and Senator at the same time in 1960 that he could not do something similar in 1964.

Have you heard his speeches where he flubs the reading of the tele-prompters?

McCain reminds me of Elmer Fud. Geez. John McFud.

That's how I picture McFudd doing his "bomb Iran" line (with a twist of Peter Lorre):

Hewwoh. Bwomb Iwan. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.

McCain looks to dodge Iraq war time bomb

Just like McSame's evil twin, Bush tries to duck the reasons he did not serve in Vietnam...

Boo, boo, boo. Boo, boo McCain.

McCain Booed At Martin Luther King Speech: Watch The Video
Quote:
Senator John McCain, "who says he will court the African-American vote this year and campaign in places Republicans often shun," spoke in Memphis on Friday to mark the 40th anniversary of the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

But his speech was met with boos and interruptions from many in the audience, as he apologized for repeatedly opposing the creation of a holiday to celebrate King's legacy.

McCain voted against the creation of a holiday honoring King in 1983, a vote which was supported by a large number of Republicans. McCain claimed this week that he was largely unaware on the importance of King's work at the time, due to his Vietnam-era service overseas. Speaking on Thursday to reporters, he explained that his conversion occurred around 1990:

"I voted in my...first year in Congress against it and then I began to learn and I studied and people talked to me. And I not only supported it but I fought very hard in my home state of Arizona for recognition against a governor who was of my own party."

MCSAME IS AS BIG A LIAR IS BUSH IS! !

But McCain's voting record since 1990 doesn't support this explanation. In addition to voting to oppose a state holiday in 1987 (which he later supported) and a federal holiday in 1989, McCain voted in 1994 to cut funding for the commission that promoted King's holiday.

WHY NO MEDICAL RECORDS RELEASE FOR MCSAME? SKIN CANCER? OTHER CANCERS? TOO OLD TO CUT THE MUSTARD?

McCain delays releasing medical records again, raising suspicion

Declined to provide files three times to New York Times

A little noticed remark in the press is generating heat for McCain's presidential campaign.

On Wednesday, McCain's campaign told CNN that the Arizona senator's medical file would be produced May 15. Trouble is, they previously said they'd be released April 15, and they've refused to turn the records over to the New York Times on at least three occasions.

This has led some on the left to question, "What's he hiding?" -- as is the banner headline on the politics section of liberal blog, The Huffington Post.

"Mr. McCain has yet to make his full medical records or his physicians available to reporters," the Times veteran medical correspondent Dr. Lawrence Altman penned in March. "At least three times since March 2007, campaign officials have told The New York Times that they would provide the detailed information about his current state of health, but they have not done so. The campaign now says it expects to release the information in April."
