Can these guys ever tell the truth?

On Sunday night, Senator John McCain said that his campaign manager, Rick Davis, had had no involvement with Freddie Mac for the last several years.

Now we find out that Freddie Mac paid $15,000 a month from the end of 2005 through last month to a firm owned by McCain’s campaign manager, according to two people with direct knowledge of the arrangement.

Also, Mr. McCain has been running a television advertisement suggesting that Mr. Obama takes advice on housing issues from Franklin D. Raines, former chief executive of Fannie Mae, a contention denied by Mr. Raines and the Obama campaign.

Truth sure is taking a beating in this campaign.

Read more about it here.


  1. No excuse for the first point, but in the latter, McCain quotes the Washington Post and Raines' own words in tying Raines to Obama.

    So who is lying, the Post or Raines, because the ad seems to be factually correct?

  2. Don't forget that Raines was in the Clinton Admin and made over $100 million along with Jaime Gorelic who, despite no experience, made $20 million plus.

    Obama has more Fannie and Freddie people working for him than McCain does. After all, Fannie and Freddie are Democrat creations, which distort the market. No surprise, lefties love to mess with free markets and capitalism. Obama is no different because he is a socialist and the most left wing candidate in the history of the United States.

  3. Furthermore, McCain takes exception to the NYT's reporting about his campaign manager. Basically the report is BS and the Times is in the tank for BHO. This could get interesting.
