McCain Vows to Crack Down on Free Enterprise

Obama must be a communist, if he's to the left of John McCain. A sample of McLame's socialist rhetoric from a conference in DC yesterday:

For too long, government has been the voice of big business. Even when very large businesses violate their trust, they seem to be held to a different standard — getting away with conduct that would leave any small-business owner broke.

Apparently the Sarbox albatross isn't punishment enough for wicked capitalists — not when McMaverick needs to distinguish himself from W by stressing his hostility to economic freedom.

Resorting to demagoguery that would have made socialist thugs like Mussolini proud, McAmnesty denounced the "extravagant" salaries and severance packages of executives in the financial sector — never mind that they are paid voluntarily, not with money extracted by force like all the $trillions acquired by the government.

True, it's hard to take anything politicians say seriously during a campaign, and McCain does want shareholders rather than Nancy Pelosi et al. to determine salaries. But then comes this:

Sen. John McCain praised Mayor Bloomberg yesterday — talking up Hizzoner as a strong candidate for governor and refusing to rule him out as a vice presidential candidate.

The quintessential RINO Bloomberg temporarily masqueraded as a Republican to run against the juvenile, ultra-Left wackos infesting NYC's Democrat Party. Only slightly less of a leftist himself, before long Bloomberg renounced his temporary Republican status, as he set about smothering the city with environmental fanaticism and ludicrous nanny state fascism.

Even considering an authoritarian moonbat like Bloomberg for VP would be about as reassuring to the Republican Party's conservative base as choosing open-borders advocate Juan Hernandez — former spokesman for the Mexican government on illegal immigration issues — to be his Hispanic outreach director.

No wonder they get on so well.

So, basically, the thinking here is that if a corporation is trouble, they shouldn't be allowed to offer a mega-deal to an accomplished executive to turn them around, even though the executive is taking a big career risk by going to a troubled company. Thus, it becomes harder for a troubled company to recruit the level of executive talent it needs to reverse its fortune. This increases the likelihood that the company will fail, putting all employees out of work and causing the shareholders to lose their investments.

But, to McCain and his cheerleaders, this is all OK because it's more "fair."

We have never been more screwed by our two political parties.

Man, it's really a tough choice this year. I'm struggling between McCain and Jack Daniels. McCain seems convinced that he can win without the vote of conservatives like me. I'm leaning toward letting him see if he can and staying home with Jack. Let the country get a 4 year belly full of Marxism and see how they like it.

Four years of Obamarxism might be enough to poison the well against socialism for a generation. It worked with Carter.

Posted by: V the K at June 11, 2008 9:10 AM

Am I odd to wonder if there are parallels between McCain and Tricky Dick Nixon?

Posted by: Archonix at June 11, 2008 9:20 AM

I'm leaning that way as well, guys... I'm not saying I'll vote for Obama... I just might not vote at all. Sometimes the best medicine is bitter and hard to swallow.

Yomama will never pick The Bitch as his running mate - but McPain might.

I was only a kid during the Carter years, but I remember how bad they sucked. Maybe VtK is right... 4 years of Obama would be a hell of a lot worse. It'll either destroy this country or drive that last nail into the coffin of hard-left politicos for AT LEAST a generation, maybe more...

I hate to say it, but I'm almost with Ron on this one. If the electorate is so chowder-headed to elect Obama, I'll survive in my apartment/bunker with Jack and my XBOX for four years. At least we'll have the satisfaction of hearing the yowls of pain over the trashed economy coming from the people who elected the diptard who did it.

We're screwed no matter who wins...its just how fast and how deep

Posted by: JamesB at June 11, 2008 9:55 AM

If McCain wins, I hope he treats the country better than he treated his first wife.

If Obama wins, I hope his incompetence and in-fighting in his administration will limit the damage they can do.

At least we'll have the satisfaction of hearing the yowls of pain over the trashed economy coming from the people who elected the diptard who did it.

The folks in my home state of Michigan are so stupid they actually re-elected the diptards that drove the state to bankruptcy. I'm hoping there's enough people on the national level smarter than that.

One must remember that McCain must say certain things in order to win even if he himself doesnt believe the words coming out of his own mouth. Fact of the matter is being a hard core conservative would doom anyone running for President. Thanks to the Republicans in congress they have turned the Conservative brand into a joke. Sadly, to most voters a conservative candidate is about as appealing as pimple on ones butt. Anyone expecting a hard core conservative to win the Presidency at this time is dillusional - aint gonna happen.

I know some conservatives think having Obama completely trash the US would be a good thing. Just be careful, you might get what you wish for. McCain isnt my dream candidate but compared to Obama he's way better. With McCain as a placeholder for the next 4 years it would give time for Republicans to find real conservatives to win in 2010 then if thats successful get a solid conservative as the nominee in 2012. Republicans in Congress acting like drunken sailors on spending spree and acting like liberals have caused so many problems. It will take years to undo the damage. But sticking a Chavez/Mugabe like Obama in the Whitehouse isnt the answer. The damage could take decades to repair.

Republicans in Congress acting like drunken sailors on spending spree and acting like liberals have caused so many problems.

But electing a "Republican" president who opposes energy independence, talks about "obscene" profits and punishing those who in his view make too much money, wants to cripple the US economy with Global Warming legislation, and wants to give Amnesty to 20 million new Democrat voters, is the solution? I don't think so.

I am also sick to my a$$ with this game the two political parties --- tweedledum and tweedledummer --- keep playing with us. This game of, "Yeah, the candidate we're sticking you with is a total piece of crap, but we're gonna scare the hell out of you so you'll think the other guy is even worse and vote for our guy."

No more.

I'm out.

BTW, Here's a moonbat radio show host who doesn't like Obama either.

Posted by: V the K at June 11, 2008 11:53 AM

Just wait till he's in office and starts reachin' across that aisle baby.

The previous McCain/(insert name) legislation will be Reagenesque by comparison.

How can I pinch my nose for this guy.

Posted by: Cluebat from Exodar at June 11, 2008 12:13 PM

I get so scared of Obama as president that I actually look for anything, something, within McCain that can cause me to change my mind and vote for him. And then he speaks.

Face it folks, we are just damn screwed in 2008.

In a way, I'm lucky. I'm from a state that McCain can't win, so I'll get to write in Fred Thompson.

Jesus Christ, this is so depressing to see. I mean it's bad enough that we as a nation have to pick from two senators who have never administered a thing in their lives much less having them run for POTUS, but to here a supposed conservative republican maverick espouse this sort of socialistic nonsense is really deflating. Does being a maverick mean that you have to sell your soul to the left so they will really really like you? Obama is a no-brainer in terms what you will get; an overtly leftist, socialist/communist, wealth redistributing pig, that will tax every single person out of prosperity while showing his utter disdain for this country by gutting it's military, going abroad to genuflect at the alter of despots and dictators while crapping money out of his ass as a means to appear as negroclaus the great dark savior of the downtrodden and wretched unwashed masses.

But reading this from McCain makes me question my sanity in that voting for this guy really makes the term voting for the lesser evil an actuality?

Let's see: The Obamanation of desolation vs. "son of cain" with Ahab & Jezebel in the wings. Our world census has already passed the "6,666,666,666" figure. What's next? If this election doesn't reek of something in the biblical proportion category then I don't know what does. Have to concur with the consensus here. We're screwed. It's tough enough correcting political obtuseness, but it's damned near impossible to cure spiritual stupidity. Here we are, about to elect a socialist, pseudo-Christian muslim to LEAD the strongest Christian nation on the earth. Duh. Talk about doing a 180 in the road. And the republicans have ignored the warning signs for years so they are as much to blame for this as anyone. THEN, Neil Cavuto gets pissy with Dan Tancredo because Tancredo said he'd vote for McLame but not endorse him. Why would Cavuto give him grief for not endorsing? Tancredo sees what we see here. There's no choice and he's not happy about it.

Um, OK, McRINO.........Release you wife's TAX RECORDS!

Geeze! He is really pandering to the Left!

Posted by: Oiao at June 11, 2008 10:11 PM

Rather than morosely choosing between McRINO and Obama, why not consider the other candidates? A protest vote for either Barr (Libertarian) or Baldwin (Constitution) will send a mesage we don't like either one of the gorons.
