Pepe Escobar from TheREALnews.com details several of McCain’s ties with paid oil company lobbyists. And McCain’s stance on the economy is completely ripped apart in this one:
"From his lobbyists, to the economy and foreign policy, McCain’s express off the rails. John McCain has been in Washington for 26 years. In the last 8 years he voted with George W. Bush 90% of the time. He admits he knows nothing about economics. Even some of his advisers admit he cannot run a company. But he knows K Street very well – the campaign of the self-styled maverick happens to be swamped by lobbyists"
I know that Obama has some advisers who share in the blame for the financial crisis, but it's amazing that these linkages are not made more often in big media. It's just so easy, and would be such an effective way to draw some eye balls. I guess part of the problem is that we are most often seeing pundits from different sides arguing with partisan rhetoric, rather than seeing any real investigative journalism, or even analysis. It's just so hard to be informed about anything from watching ideologically bent pundits.
