McCain will attend Debate in Mississippi
Just heard on the cable money channel, CNBC, the Sen. John McCain will be attending the debate in Mississippi, even though no deal on the Bailout has been made yet.
This should be interesting.
Here's the whole statement released to the press from John McCain's website.
"John McCain's decision to suspend his campaign was made in the hopes that politics could be set aside to address our economic crisis," the statement said. "In response, Americans saw a familiar spectacle in Washington. At a moment of crisis that threatened the economic security of American families, Washington played the blame game rather than work together to find a solution that would avert a collapse of financial markets without squandering hundreds of billions of taxpayers' money to bail out bankers and brokers who bet their fortunes on unsafe lending practices."
Looks like many demonstrators are already on site at Ole Miss, Oxford, Mississippi. Students? or....? According to CNN, over 250 demonstrations against the Bailout were being organized yesterday.
Here's one from California.
Some commentators on the cable news programs are indicating that the financial bailout crisis can't be kept out of this debate tonight, even though the topic is supposed to be Foreign Relations. Wonder how many foreign banks and investment institutions actually bought these shady financial packages?
Do you really want to know what made the Republicans buck?
See this YouTube video from FoxNews.
Wait for it. Wait for it.
And this is not the first time ACORN has been included in a bailout deal, along with LA RAZA, the radical illegal immigration advocacy group!
Here's the Wall Street Journal story on Acorn from July.
One of the biggest likely beneficiaries, despite Republican objections: Acorn, a housing advocacy group that also helps lead ambitious voter-registration efforts benefiting Democrats.
Acorn -- made up of several legally distinct groups under that name -- has become an important player in the Democrats' effort to win the White House. Its voter mobilization arm is co-managing a $15.9 million campaign with the group Project Vote to register 1.2 million low-income Hispanics and African-Americans, who are among those most likely to vote Democratic. Technically nonpartisan, the effort is one of the largest such voter-registration drives on record.
