    McCain well embedded in economic woes



    How this guy isn't just getting hammered in the polls is truly amazing.

    McCain's people are tightly connected to mortgage debacle:

    McCain campaign manager Rick Davis' firm "Davis Manfort" is apparently STILL on Freddie Mac's payroll receiving 15k a month for a total of over 2 million since 2005:

    Williams Timmons seen as many to be the individual who will head McCain's transiton team if he wins th eelection has been a lobbyist for Freddie Mac since 2000 earning over $250,000 this year alone:

    Phil Gramm, McCains ecomonmic advisor was instrumental in getting the "Commodity Futures Modernization Act" passed which specifically banned regulation of credit default swaps or in Gramms words, "protected financial institutions from overregulation" leading to the subprime meltdown.

    Of course Mccains campaign diverts attention from this by whining about the unfairness of the media whne the media is just reporting the important facts. I don't see how he has a leg to stand on here when it comes to the economy.

    Looks like Davis, in light of recent news that he is still receiving money from Freddie, is now being sequestered like Palin. Pretty soon there are not going to be many people left to talk about McCain but himself...

    This is campaign manager folks.

    Lehman Brothers, AIG, et al. They ALL gave more money to Democrats than Republicans.'

    Fannie and Freddie's top recipients over the last 19 years, all Democrats. Obama made 2nd or 3rd (depending on how you count) on that list despite his VERY short time in the Senate. He got more money than anybody else since he got into the Senate.

    There is a reason the Democrats aren't doing what you did here. That can of worms is worse for them.
