OTOH, the R candidate has a special affinity for known felons, extending to this year. For example take McCain's association with G. Gordon Liddy.

Liddy served four and a half years in prison in connection with his conviction for his role in the Watergate break-in and the break-in at the office of the psychiatrist of Daniel Ellsberg, the military analyst who leaked the Pentagon Papers. Liddy has acknowledged preparing to kill someone during the Ellsberg break-in "if necessary"; plotting to murder journalist Jack Anderson; plotting with a "gangland figure" to murder Howard Hunt to stop him from cooperating with investigators; plotting to firebomb the Brookings Institution; and plotting to kidnap "leftist guerillas" at the 1972 Republican National Convention -- a plan he outlined to the Nixon administration using terminology borrowed from the Nazis. (The murder, firebombing, and kidnapping plots were never carried out; the break-ins were.) During the 1990s, Liddy reportedly instructed his radio audience on multiple occasions on how to shoot Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms agents and also reportedly said he had named his shooting targets after Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Liddy has donated $5,000 to McCain's campaigns since 1998, including $1,000 in February 2008. In addition, McCain has appeared on Liddy's radio show during the presidential campaign, including as recently as May. An online video labeled "John McCain On The G. Gordon Liddy Show 11/8/07" includes a discussion between Liddy and McCain, whom Liddy described as an "old friend." During the segment, McCain praised Liddy's "adherence to the principles and philosophies that keep our nation great," said he was "proud" of Liddy, and said that "it's always a pleasure for me to come on your program."

I would trust G. Gordon Liddy to teach my grandchildren a civics or history class.

I would not trust any known associate of Obama, or him, to teach anything to a grandchild of mine. He hates America and yet his father came here before the Civil Rights Act and loved the place. Got a free Harvard education! How do you square that?

You are really having to reach with Elastic Man arms to find a felon in McCain’s past, while Obama had a cocktail party with people who bombed the Pentagon to launch his political career. He is bought and paid for by petro-billionaires and George Soros who are committing financial terrorism on our stock market.

The sub prime mortgage is one problem, but the withdrawal of cash from the market by limousine liberals, Soros and petro-billionaires is probably the REAL reason for our crash. All to get their water boy elected as they create a false “failure of Bush economic policy”. People, hold on to your stocks and do not panic.
