McCain Camp Didnít Vet Obama; Palin Thought That Was a Mistake
Conservatives4Palin ^ | May 19 2012 | Stacy Drake

Posted on 05/19/2012 12:38:28 PM PDT by Mozilla

Sean Hannity hosted a panel on his show last night, to discuss Barack Obama’s history, in his “own words.” Stephen K. Bannon was a member of that panel, and reminded viewers (around the 3:30 mark) that the McCain campaign failed to vet Obama during the 2008 presidential election.

The decision to not vet the current president in 2008 by Steve Schmidt and other incompetent individuals within the McCain camp, played a role in outcome in that race. Governor Palin knew the American people deserved to know the facts about Obama’s history and associations. Schmidt & Co. simply wouldn’t allow it, and the result is the current failed leadership.

“Four years down the drain, like we could afford it.”

I agree entirely. It was McCain's responsibility as an American to vet Obama. McCain did not put the best interests of the United States of America foremost. I give him all due credit for serving America in war, and or going through what he did in a prison camp, but that does not change the fact that he did not act in the best interests of America when he decided that it was more important to appear ‘reasonable’ and ‘bipartisan’ than to find out the truth about someone who was vying for control over an entire branch of American government. He acted irresponsibly, in my opinion.

I don’t think McCain really intended to win the presidency...he sure didn’t campaign like he did.

I agree...McCain saw himself as a nominee-placeholder...the black man was to bail out the crooks on Wall Street and save the unions in Detroit. McCain’s job was to run and lose. He did that very well.

It’s because McCain was born in PANAMA, and he didn’t want to be excluded either. Just respecting the sleeping dogs...never awaken them.

I think he didn’t vet Obama because he already knew.

During the later stages of his campaign, McCain publicly stated that Obama would be a good President. We now know he stated that without ever vetting Obama.

This is like the story of my Great Granda and Grandma. They died together like this and loved one another every day. She went to heaven first and he went three hours after her. My grandparents were similar but it took Grandpa a year to get out after she left. That was a sad year for him and all the family who loved him and tried to make it easier on him.

You can not beat family love like this and you can only get it by sticking together through the good times and the hard times.

Well, I was responding to what was written to me. It is about vetting Mittens. The comment was that Mitten’s daddy was Mexican so the question arises whether or not we should be addressing this about him. In other words, the GOP is not vetting their own candidate like they did not vet Obama.
It’s a tad of a detour. :)

Yet, Obama agreed and signed his name to the NBC DEFINITION in SR 511 agreed upon through common sense and history by Chertoff, Shrillary, the ever popular “lets do away with NBC” McCaskill, etc. of TWO US CITIZEN PARENTS.

Nor would I. In fact, I'm pretty sure McCain's a closet democrat.

Me too. I was on my way toward 5.5 by 55. Now, I will be lucky to have a years salary at 55.

Their deliberate collapsing of the economy to get their pathetic Marxist in, then their robbing and looting of the national treasury and deliberate bankrupting of our nation, and then their war on US energy and military. What does it take before we make a stand? If Romney and Republicans do take over after this election, do they realize how short a leash we are giving them? Do they realize how tired and irritated we are at the political class? They have to get good things done and slash the budget down to levels we haven't seen in years.

We need draconian cuts in federal spending.

McCain NEVER intended to win the election. All he wanted was the nomination. I’d tell that to him IF I had the chance. Actually, I sent him an email saying that right after the 2008 fiasco. And just recently I sent another email reminding him about his famous statement when he said that we have nothing to fear from an 0bama presidency.

Care to reevalutate that juan?

I've said over and over that I would even crawl over a football field of broken glass to vote for whoever opposed Dear Leader....

BUT, if I even get wind that this back-stabbing, bottom-feeding, scumbag, fat tub of sheet is in anyway advising Mittens (even "remotely") then, all bets are off!!!

Actually, I believe it was. And I believe that Soros threatened McCain (and GW Bush, and Dick Cheney, and Chief Justice Roberts, and Judge David Carter.... etc...), similar to the way he threatened Bill and Hillary Clinton. Except he killed Bill Gwatney to threaten the Clintons because he knew that love of self controls the Clintons, and he threatened to kill the USA to threaten McCain and the others because he knew they have some love of country.

According to Bettina Viviano and Linda Thompson (?), top dems told them that Soros met with both Hillary and Obama during the 2008 primary to see if they would support him in his plans to destroy the US economy. Hillary wouldn’t but Obama would, and thus began the need to get Obama elected rather than Hillary. I believe Soros leads a communist-Islamist alliance to destroy America. Hillary is fine with the communist part but too much of a feminist to do the Islamist thing. Soros needed the Islamists though, in order to have enough money to bribe all the people who needed to be bribed in the election, as well as to pull off the destruction of the US economy - the run on the bank with monetary amounts that were enough to shake the whole world’s economy.

I think McCain did want to win; that’s why he chose Palin in the first place. But something happened to him after a while. Specifically about a week after the run on the bank. McCain had taken the lead in the race because of his choice of Palin. That’s when Soros’ communist-Islamist cabal made the run on the bank.

They were sure that Congress would immediately agree to TARP (a way to pay back the allies who had helped make the run), but after about a week had passed and R’s were balking and President Bush was staying out of the issue, in a single day all of a sudden McCain announced he was suspending his campaign and wanted to cancel the debates.... AND President Bush suddenly announced that he would give a speech to the nation, in which he said the world as we know it would end if we didn’t pass TARP (a drop in the bucket that would have nothing but symbolic effect - as payback to Soros’ operatives).

I believe that was the day that the Soros people told both McCain and Bush that their communist-Islamist alliance had made the run on the bank and could do it again at any time, unless they - McCain and Bush - did whatever they were told to do.

Right around that time, Paulson and Bernanke started having seminars on Islamic finance. Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez started saying, “Since capitalism has failed, the world should try communism...”. Zawahiri and Ahmadinejad started saying, “Since capitalism has failed the world should try Islamic finance...” The IMF was meeting in Europe to decide what needed to happen next, now that capitalism had failed. GW Bush was saying Armageddon was upon us and the whole western world would fall if we didn’t pass TARP...

A lot of people were obviously running VERY scared. People who do love the country.

About a month later Soros made some kind of threat to Fox News and other media companies. The media heads told their on-air personalities that the threat was FCC and/or FTC annihilation after the election if anybody reported on Obama’s eligibility problem, but that doesn’t make sense because the media heads had only to report the threats to the Bush DOJ and Obama could have been kept from winning the election. The threat had to have been something bigger - something that could happen regardless of any reporting to law enforcement or any elections. I believe the threat was another run on the bank that would destroy the world economy forever.

And Soros has been calling the shots ever since. To SCOTUS, to the media including “conservatives”, to Bill and Hillary Clinton, to Joe Biden, to President Bush, to John Boehner, to the eligibility judges.... and on and on.

There’s a lot of stupidity, cowardice, and selfishness with a lot of these people. Politics is really a sick game; I hate politics. But I also believe there is much more going on below the surface than most of us even want to know about, and those truths are slowly bubbling to the surface where we can see them if we have our eyes open.

Excellent. But, how did the guy who reached across the aisle regularly know America wanted to vote for the first Black President? They were itchin and dyin to vote away their racist guilt. Besides, Bush's deficit spending and high unemployment plus two wars were wrapped around the Rep candidate's neck like a millstone. And, McCain wore it well. Guess torture prepares one for such.

Sarah had to be destroyed because she was a natural conservative. They saw it and went into action at every turn to ruin her. People fell for it and that is that.

So now, we have a quasi conservative facing the same America-hating fundamental reformists who will avoid their record to get re-elected. Some advice for the Romney camp: Have someone with a deep voice read the Declaration of Independence and put it on a disk drive so Mitt can listen to it at least two hours a day. The messages contained therein are irrefutable and will expose the phony in the White House (and Senate as well).

The DOI is the charter and foundation of a great nation. What makes it even more applicable today is the section that deals with replacing a disfunctional government with a new one that best fits our expectations for liberty.

BUT and it is a big distinction, McCain was born in Panama because his US parents were assigned there on military duty and he was born on American soil (which military bases are always considered).....so nice try but McCain’s fail was not for this reason

So if your parents dare in another country (and they are US citizens), where you are born, and they return before you are of majority age that makes you a citizen of the country you were born in??? I think not. On that basis children born to illegals here in the US should be considered US citizens

Mc Cain was not born on US soil. It was Panamanian.

It didn't make him a citizen of that nation.

It did cancel his NATURAL BORN status.
