Skip to comments.McCain: The Most Reprehensible of the Keating Five(Flashback)
Posted on 01/28/2010 11:17:26 AM PST by icwhatudo
You're John McCain, a fallen hero who wanted to become president so desperately that you sold yourself to Charlie Keating, the wealthy con man who bears such an incredible resemblance to The Joker.
Obviously, Keating thought you could make it to the White House, too.
He poured $112,000 into your political campaigns. He became your friend. He threw fund raisers in your honor. He even made a sweet shopping-center investment deal for your wife, Cindy. Your father-in-law, Jim Hensley, was cut in on the deal, too.
Nothing was too good for you. Why not? Keating saw you as a prime investment that would pay off in the future.

Thanks for running this article. May we never forget the Keating Five.
John McCain’s Whimsical World of Conservatism
Food for thought for the George Soros, Teressa Heinz Kerry, Tides Foundation et al wing of the Republican Party.
Mc Cain receives $112,000 from Keating and his minions.
This is just what the left wants- Republicans arguing over which Republican is the most corrupt.
Has Hayworth ever co-authored a bill against free speech?(McCain-Feingold) ?
Hey Maverick, do one more honorable deed — disappear from the political scene.
Long on general condemnations, short on specific allegations of wrongdoing. What did McCain do that was illegal?
This type of crappy editorializing was why we needed Rush, why we needed the internet, and it’s why we need the alternative forms of media today.
You are correct.
I really don't like mcpain, but this kind of bullshit is what the left eats up.
They get pubbies to attack each other and when the dust settles, they use our own words to kick the candidate in the butt.
Screw mcpain, but only by pushing JD's better qualities, not by throwing stones at mcpain.
As much as I don't like mcpain, he was a vet and spent five years in a POW camp. That ain't chopped liver.
“This is just what the left wants- Republicans arguing over which Republican is the most corrupt.”
Now there’s a flimsy excuse to support McCain if I ever heard one. You know, at one time, the Republican party had some integrity and pushed these traitors like McCain out of the party. They went to Nixon and told him to get out. They need to do the same with McCain, who is worse than Nixon ever dreamed of being.
As long as we deep six McCain, I don’t really care. He is an absolute menace to the conservative movement within the GOP. It is time for him to go and hopefully a conservative will replace him.
That’s incorrect. In ‘95, US Senator Phil Graham of Texas, tapped McCain to chair his campaign for the GOP nomination and McCain agreed. Bob Dole was already a candidate in the race.
This “his turn” in the Republican party has to end. We always lose with this kind of kingdom inheritance thinking.
I'd settle for somebody that Soros et.al. doesn't own. That would be an improvement.
I mean, to hell with McCain; but why the need to misrepresent the truth?
I was going to point out that Hayworth was completely exonerated by the USDOJ, but you’ve already been zotted, so goodbye and good riddance, you McCainiac piece of sh*t!
