McCain meets with evangelist Billy Graham and son

Jun 29, 2008 | Posted by: The Associated Press | Full story: The Associated Press

John McCain met Sunday with evangelist Billy Graham and his son, Franklin, at the family's mountaintop retreat.

The Republican presidential candidate, who is actively courting religious voters and trying to reassure skeptical conservatives, visited privately with the Grahams on the grounds of Little Piney Cove in the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina.

'We had a very excellent conversation. I appreciated the opportunity to visit with them,' McCain said after the 45-minute meeting.

DONNA KELLEY, CNN ANCHOR: Right now we want to take you on CNN to Virginia Beach, Virginia, where Senator John McCain is addressing a crowd there. He plans to blast televangelist Pat Robertson for some phone calls that he had put together in this campaign thus far.

<snip>

McCAIN: "Neither party should be defined by pandering to the outer reaches of American politics and the agents of intolerance, whether they be Louis Farrakhan or Al Sharpton on the left, or Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell on the right. "

The first thing ol' Billy probably told McCain is how unwise it is to mix religion and politics, I'll betcha. No wonder the meeting was only 45 minutes long. LOL Falwell hated Billy for making a wry observation about it years ago on how it never seems to raise up the politician but rather too often sinks the pastor instead.

Maybe McCain told Billy how he doesn't like blacks, especially Martin Luther King. What a trouble maker THAT one was back in the day. I wonder if Billy told McCain his low, low, low, opinion of the Jews.

Remember the Nixon tapes where Billy goes on and on about the Jews and their money and how he's friendly to them in public because he had to be, being he is a 'Christian' and all. lmao

Hypocrites. Every last one of them.

All that time McCain spent wooing the far right Xtian fundamentalists, and now it looks like he's going to pick Romney the Mormon as his running mate?

Senility has definitely set in on poor McCain.

GOBAMA!
