McCain Rips RNC Over Attack on Obama

Video Link From ABC

I’ve never been a huge fan of John McCain but I do respect his “No Bull” attitude when it comes to government. I think that it is pretty much common knowledge that President Elect Obama was aware of the Governor of Illinois and his hard lined political philosophy and unaware of his depth of corruption. Some call it pay as you go and others just call it corruption. I find myself with the firm opinion that this is a problem for the people of Illinois to deal with and that should be the end of it. Police thy self Illinois and then let us all get back to the issues facing America and her people. John McCain has the same thought process and Politico has this on it…

McCain scolds GOP for whacking Obama
By MIKE ALLEN 12/14/08 10:05 AM EST

In a surprising rebuke to the warriors who fought for him through tough times, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Sunday sided with President-elect Barack Obama and scolded the Republican National Committee for fanning the Illinois corruption scandal.

On ABC’s “This Week,” host George Stephanopoulos asked: “The chairman of the Republican National Committee, Mike Duncan, has been highly critical of the way President- elect Obama has dealt with this.

"He's had a statement every single day, saying that the Obama team should reveal all contacts they've had with Governor [Rod] Blagojevich. He says that Obama's promise of transparency to the American people is now being tested. Do you agree with that?”

McCain replied: “I think that the Obama campaign should and will give all information necessary. You know, in all due respect to the Republican National Committee and anybody — right now, I think we should try to be working constructively together, not only on an issue such as this, but on the economy stimulus package, reforms that are necessary. And so, I don't know all the details of the relationship between President-elect Obama's campaign or his people and the governor of Illinois, but I have some confidence that all the information will come out. It always does, it seems to me.”
- Politico

This whole incident with the Governor of Illinois is incredible news but it is fanning the fires that suspend progress on the greater issues in America. Why don’t we let the FBI and the State of Illinois take care of the corrupt Governor and let Obama and his team concentrate on laying the ground work to fix the RNC mantra mistakes under George W. Bush that has our nation facing the next depression.

Who the hell is the RNC to talk anyway? Were they not the ones that shelled out over $150,000 in clothes and cosmetics to Sarah Palin? Don’t they have enough problems dealing with rebuilding their own infrastructure rather than assuming that Governor Blagojevich is from Illinois, Barack Obama is from Illinois, they were both in state government so they both must be guilty. Isn’t that more or less similar in logic to blaming your local bank teller for the collapse of the entire banking industry?

John McCain knows how the RNC works, matter of fact he probably lost the election because of the RNC and how they work. John McCain is done being the best friend of the RNC and he is back to the old John McCain we all know and love. John McCain the fighter, the defender of the truth, and a man that knows bull when he sees it. Good for him. John McCain has always served best in the Senate when he was serving from his own gut. At least McCain wants to work with the President Elect to get America moving forward again. You can not say the same for the RNC or many of their other political leaders in government.
