But now, McCain, rallying the rube-Republicans, abandons his Teddy Roosevelt credentials, in order to pander to the people's paranoia of higher-taxes, calling Obama's repeal of the Bush tax cuts on the top 5 percent as "far left" and bringing up the non-existent ghost of socialist-activist-judges:
MCCAIN: No. But I do believe -- I do believe that he's been in the far left of American politics. He has stated time after time that he believes in quote, "spreading the wealth around." He's talked about courts that would redistribute the wealth.
McCain doesn't believe Obama is a socialist, but has no problem busing "Joe the Dumber" and Sarah "oildigger" Palin around the country, paid with public-financed money, to spread the fear of socialism. Do you have no shame McCain? Will you ever stop pandering to the peoples' paranoia in order to get elected?
On Larry King McCain cried about Obama breaking a promise about calling his opponent, John McCain, to discuss accepting public-financing. Well McCain wasn't going to accept public financing, until he need it:
But Obama didn't opt out and McCain still accepted public money because he needed it: Republicans weren't enthusiastic enough about his candidacy to contribute. Now realizing he needs the Republican's base, he panders to the wealthy (just as he's pandering the the religious right he once derided as intolerant by flip-flopping on abortion) by promising to make Bush's tax-cuts permanent, tax-cuts he once criticized.
Actual Corporate Taxes paid, far lower than the 35% on paper:
Over the three-year period, the average effective rate for all 275 companies dropped by a fifth, from 21.4 percent in 2001 to 17.2 percent in 2002-2003.
And McCain wants to lower their taxes even more, by 10%, while denouncing corporate greed like some populist? What a two-faced panderer. Sarah Palin should know that her constant claims that America has the second-highest corporate-tax rate are bullshit, she is after all, experienced in evading taxes herself:
