It would seem McCain’s political family tree with the Far East is much stronger than a last name. McCain has fired some lobbyist but still have several.
Charles R. Black Jr., the senior adviser to Republican John McCain whose work for foreign dictators has led Democrats to call for his ouster, is not the only lobbyist in the family volunteering on the senator from Arizona's presidential campaign.
Black "served as senior advisor to President George Bush
At the lobbying firm, Black was " principal legislative & public affairs advisor to several Fortune 500 companies & trade associations.
Black's "ties with the Bush family go back to 1972, when he & Karl Rove were jockeying for control of the College Republicans in a campaign so dirty that George Bush, then head of the Republican National Committee, had to step in & sort matters out
His wife, Judy Black, is a national co-chair of the fundraising group "Women for McCain," & she has a vibrant lobbying practice that includes a foreign client and several companies with business before the Senate Commerce Committee, where McCain is a senior member. Judy Black works at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, a firm that earned $12.9 million in lobbying fees last year. She is listed as an agent of Dubai Aerospace Enterprises, whose partners include the government of Dubai, according to forms filed under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. Since 2004, she has also represented telecomunications companies AT&T and Global Crossing Ltd., which have matters before the Commerce Committee. Do some research for your self to see who these Lobbyist worked for. For half a decade in the 1980s, Black was also Jonas Savimbi's man in the capital city. His lobbying firm received millions from the brutal Angolan guerrilla leader & took advantage of Black's contacts in Congress and the White House
Justice Department records that Black's firm submitted under the Foreign Agents Registration Act detail frequent meetings with lawmakers & their staffs and lavish spending by Black & his partners as they attempted to ensure support for Savimbi, whose UNITA movement was fighting the Marxist Angolan government.
In addition to Savimbi, Black & his partners were at times registered foreign agents for a remarkable collection of U.S.-backed foreign leaders whose human rights records were sometimes harshly criticized, even as their opposition to communism was embraced by American conservatives. They included Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire, Nigerian Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre, and the countries of Kenya and Equatorial Guinea, among others
The Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) is a government-owned holding company operating through six subsidiaries: aircraft manufacturing; aircraft servicing; airport development and management; aircraft leasing & financing; aerospace education; aerospace technology incubator and consulting.

Nov 12, 2007 Dubai Aerospace Enterprise signed letters of intent for 100 planes
With the backing of Dubai’s ruling family, DAE was established with AED55.1 billion (USD15 billion) in start-up capital & a mission to establish a presence for the Aerospace industry to the Middle East.
McCain’s camp putting out any thing that promotes Obama as having family with Far East ties. McCain’s political family tree shows a much more in focus view of just who’ has connections to the Far East.
This also figures into this equation.
McCain made big deal in past how does the national co-chair of Women for McCain get a pass?
