Oh, come on. I don't believe there is any candidate, at least at the national level, that doesn't get some money from special interest groups. And certainly someone as powerful as John McCain would.

There isn't, not even Saint Obama.

He may not take money directly from lobbyists. No he takes money from employees of firms that LOBBY government. Mere details. The important thing is the big picture, right? Who cares about the details, when we can have CHANGE, HOPE, and UNITY?

Wait didn't Dubya promise these things too?

But he's part of the vast right-wing conspiracy tainted by corruption and greedy capitalist pigs.

Obama and his fellow Dems will bring us salvation by giving us everything we want........FOR FREE! Who could ask for more?

Never mind about the socialism.

Behind the John McCain Lobbying Scandal: A Look at How McCain Urged the Federal Communications Commission to Act on Behalf of Paxson Communications
On Thursday, the New York Times revealed McCain repeatedly wrote letters to government regulators on behalf of Paxson Communications and other clients of the telecommunications lobbyist, Vicki Iseman. We speak to Angela Campbell, the attorney for the Alliance for Progressive Action and QED Accountability Project, the community groups that sought to block PaxsonÂ’s takeover of a Pittsburgh public television license

Money, no, not *directly.* After all, money from the companies that the lobbyist represents is not money from the lobbyist.

Now, a piece of ass ... that's a different story.

Actually ... it's the same story.

John McCain has taken over $500,000 from PACs (Political Action Committees). Hillary Clinton has taken over $1 million. Barack Obama has taken TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS in PAC money.

You can tell who is in bed with the special interests, literally or figuratively.

John McCain spent less than half the money that Romney did by the time Romney bowed out. McCain is spending less than half of what either Obama or Clinton are spending. He doesn't need the special interest money because he knows how to use money efficiently. Obama and Clinton do because efficiency is an alien concept to them. You'll see that reflected in your pocketbook if either of them gets elected.

Does anyone know what McCain's stand is on Chinese imports and the toll it is taking on the American middle class? I'm very interested in knowing, considering nothing has been mentioned.

Yes, his stand is, "I don't know much about economics."

HOWEVER....
He DOES have a lot more "experience" and is more suited to be president..........

Clearly he's referencing his (although admirable) military service.

I can think of a LOT of soldiers who are great soldiers...

But I'd never, ever vote for them.
