Keating Economics: John McCain & The Making of a Financial Crisis

John McCain and Sarah Palin misjudged Barack Obama ... and the American public. We are in the middle of a financial meltdown that is resulting in record-high levels of unemployment. Yet, McCain/Palin say they want to 'turn the page on the economy' and engage in gutter politics.

These Rove-like tactics worked in 2000 and 2004 presidential elections.

However, the Obama campaign responds quickly and professionally. Here is a 13-minute documentary about why John McCain's failed philosophy and poor judgment are a recipe for deepening the crisis.

Take a moment to check it out:





John McCain displayed his poor judgement on matters related to the economy with the Keating Five scandal. We can't afford a do-over.

I wrote about the Keating Five a few weeks ago. My position is that if you live in a glass house, don't throw stones. While John McCain was not imprisoned for his role in the savings and loan collapse, he was censured for using poor judgment. That is the problem. He has shown poor judgment repeatedly in this campaign and that speaks volumes to the type of president he will be, if elected. We cannot afford for a repeat of the Bush Administration and of John McCain's poor judgment when it comes to fiscal matters and the economy, in general.

You must've hit it in the eye. Mc Cain should have gone for something more captivating and new here. Approaches and movement matters a lot. Obama proved to be really different somehow.

I just hope he is really different from the others. He's a hope in a jar waiting to be emptied in the eye of the public.

Janet - I agree that John McCain doesn't have the judgement or temperment to be POTUS. I think he is beginning to realize it...

MasterOfThe - First, it is a pleasure to have your village voice up in here. Second, I truly believe that Obama's presidency (if he is elected) will be a remarkable one for our country. I 'spose folks thought the same about JFK when he took office. In any case, I look forward to him being our national leader...
