Biden Condolences | McCain Keating Five Video

Sending heartfelt condolences to vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden and his lovely wife, Jill. Jill Biden lost her mother, Bonny Jean Jacobs, yesterday after a long illness. This New York Times article tells more about the loss of Senator Biden's mother-in-law.

Meanwhile every Obama-ite's good cyberpal, David Plouffe, who heads communications for the Obama campaign, just emailed this message and video. It's about McCain and his involvement in the Keating Five savings and loan scandal:

Dear Viqi,

John McCain wants you to forget about his role in our country's last major financial crisis and costly bailout: the savings and loan crisis of the late '80s and early '90s. But voters deserve to know that the failed philosophy and culture of corruption that created the savings and loan crisis then are alive in the current crisis -- and in John McCain's plans for our economic future. We just released a short documentary about John McCain's role in that financial crisis -- watch it now and share it with your friends:

Voters should know the facts about John McCain's poor judgment -- judgment that has twice placed him on the wrong side of history.

Please forward this email to everyone you know.



There ya' go, Dave. No fave is too great for my neighbor, Senator Barack Obama, the next president of the United States. He continues to do all of Chicago, but particularly our cool community of Hyde Park, proud.


PS -- Here's a link to the landing site for this Obama video, "Keating Economics: John McCain and The Making Of a Financial Crisis." On the site, you can get new Obama news, email the video to your friends, and more.

We all have skeletons in our past. McCain, through Palin’s attacks this weekend, made these kind of things inevitable. Keating and G. Gordon Liddy, two convicted felons, are just the tip of the iceberg of McCain’s friendships.

agree 100%, straight talk. people living in glass houses should know better than to throw stones. i believe this'll be the 'stone' that shatters mccain's bid. i think this is the 'october surprise' the situation needs.

The conclusion back then that McCain wasn't culpable is utter rubbish. Dude was too closely linked to Keating, financially and otherwise. McCain was guilty of sin, and it was whitewashed.
