* McCain must think we’re a nation of village idiots

Posted by Lew Weinstein on September 25, 2008

James Moore writes in the Huffington Post (thanks to LIZ for the link) …

  • Our national financial crisis is readily understood by anyone who has seen greed and hypocrisy.
  • Conservative Republicans always want the government to stay out of business and avoid regulation as long as they are making lots of money.
  • When their greed, however, gets them into a fix, they are the first to cry out for rules and laws and taxpayer money to bail out their businesses.
  • John McCain rides the lobbyists’ jets. He takes their campaign donations. He makes them his campaign advisors.
  • And he tells us to trust him.
  • He must think we are a nation of village idiots. 

 

LMW COMMENT:

 

This lengthy article traces the roots of our current financial problems through John McCain’s history …

  • the S&L scandal of McCain’s friend Charles Keating (for which McCain was widely criticized but not arrested; Keating spent 5 years in prison),
  • Phil Gramm’s deregulation measures (Gramm is McCain’s likely choice as Treasury Secretary if he gets the chance to pick one)
