McCain Liars Cry Wolf!

The only thing worse than being caught in a lie is being caught in a multitude of lies. And now the McCain campaign is complaining that all of the press is “In the Tank” against them. How dare the legitimate press that can in fact be “Sued for Defamation” check the facts coming out of not just John McCain's mouth but Sarah Palin's? How dare Fox News and Karl Rove turn against John McCain?

To top it off they call a press conference to confront the lies and then end up telling the same lies if not more? Did Pinocchio’s evil twin brother sign up to run the John McCain campaign for President? Hold off buying that extra couple of cord’s of wood to heat the house this winter, it appears the McCain camp has plenty to spare! It's pretty damn clear to me that nobody knows how to check facts in the McCain campaign now. Just make stuff up and throw it out there to grab a days worth of press coverage. Worry about the details later. Only the mud and crap hitting the fan really counts?

I first spotted this story over at the Gun Toting Liberal, then I ran into it again on Memeorandum. I’ve called the McCain for President campaign liars so many times based on facts that can be checked everywhere that it is almost like breathing. Apparently, nobody at McCain and company ever heard of Google or! Politico has this to say on the latest outrage from the McCain campaign for declaring bloggers and MSM in the tank for Obama because facts don't own up to the McCain version of the truth…

McCain camp criticism rife with errors
By BEN SMITH 9/22/08 3:58 PM EDT

Sen. John McCain’s top campaign aides convened a conference call today to complain of being called “liars.” They pressed the media to scrutinize specific elements of Sen. Barack Obama’s record.

But the call was so rife with simple, often inexplicable misstatements of fact that it may have had the opposite effect: to deepen the perception, dangerous to McCain, that he and his aides have little regard for factual accuracy.

The errors in McCain strategist Steve Schmidt’s charges against Obama and Sen. Joe Biden were particularly notable because they seemed unnecessary. Schmidt repeatedly gilded the lily: He exaggerated the Biden family's already problematic ties to the credit card industry; Obama’s embarrassing relationship with a 1960s radical; and an Obama supporter’s over-the-top attack on Sarah Palin when — in each case — the truth would have been damaging enough.


Asked about the series of errors, McCain aides could not provide evidence to back up Schmidt’s assertions.

One McCain aide, Michael Goldfarb, said Politico was “quibbling with ridiculously small details when the basic things are completely right.”

Another, Brian Rogers, responded more directly:

“You are in the tank,” he e-mailed.

Count me as in the tank! I hate a liar, I don’t tolerate it from my kids so why would I tolerate it from someone wanting my vote to be President? Common sense is not to be found at the McCain headquarters and for that matter with the candidate.

It has become more and more apparent that John McCain thinks that American’s are just stupid and will believe whatever he tells them. Unlike John McCain, most American’s live in the real world and can easily see how very different they are from him and the words that just spew out of his mouth. His reputation as the Maverick has melted down to the point of a used Ford Pinto salesman. It won’t blow up in your face if you don’t drive the car!

Speaking of cars, did you know John McCain and the wife own 13 cars? Barack and his wife only own one. Hmmm, who lives more like you do? Then we have one more lie to add to the McCain tote board of lies from Newsweek…

When you have seven homes, that's a lot of garages to fill. After the fuss over the number of residences owned by the two presidential nominees, NEWSWEEK looked into the candidates' cars. And based on public vehicle-registration records, here's the score. John and Cindy McCain: 13. Barack and Michelle Obama: one.

One vehicle in the McCain fleet has caused a small flap. United Auto Workers president Ron Gettelfinger, an Obama backer, accused McCain this month of "flip-flopping" on who bought daughter Meghan's foreign-made Toyota Prius. McCain said last year that he bought it, but then told a Detroit TV station on Sept. 7 that Meghan "bought it, I believe, herself." (The McCain campaign did not respond to multiple requests for comment.)

John McCain is proving that he is only a Maverick against the truth. He should be ashamed of himself for loosing all the credibility he once had. He isn’t a Republican anymore, he is just an out right liar. We don’t need that in the White House.
