McCain's Country Music Extravaganza

By Juliet Eilperin
PANAMA CITY, Fla. -- "Can I get a yee-haw?"

With that, country music star John Rich launched into a spirited "Country First" concert on behalf Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) tonight featuring his number-one hit "Lost in This Moment with You" and the debut of a song he had written especially for the presumptive GOP nominee, "Raising McCain."

The free concert, sponsored by the Florida Republican Party, attracted several hundred people including a fan sporting a homemade T-shirt saying, "Don't let the USA become an Obama-Nation."

The 34-year old Rich, saying he was feeling "a little feisty," delivered a tune about American conquest with the introduction, "Here's an oldie but goodie about America kicking a little butt."

Before playing Johnny Cash's "Walk the Line," he declared that the song was tantamount to a McCain endorsement.

"Somebody's got to walk the line in the country. They've got to walk it unapologetically," he said. "And I'm sure Johnnny Cash would have been a John McCain supporter if he was still around."

Actually, Cash backed Democratic president Jimmy Carter. And Rich himself supported former Tennessee senator Fred Thompson's bid for the GOP presidential nomination this year, calling him the "only true conservative" in the 2008 Republican primary, until Thompson dropped out of the race.

The crowd cheered at Rich's patriotic lyrics, including an homage to World War II veterans -- "The Man" -- with the line, "'cause we'd all be speaking German, living under the flag of the Japan, if it wasn't for the Good Lord and the Man.'"

As McCain's Straight Talk Express bus drove up to the concert grounds Rich launched into "Raising McCain," which pays homage to the senator's time in captivity during the Vietnam War.

"He stayed strong, stayed extra long till they let all the other boys out. Now we've got a real man with an American plan, we're going to put him in the big White House," he sang and his band played the zydeco-infused tune. "You can get on the train or get out of the way. We're all just raising McCain."

Rich is part of the musical duo "Big and Rich": his partner "Big Kenny" Alphin has endorsed and contributed to Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.). Rich told the audience he wrote the song because so many musicians and celebrities are liberal.

"I always see the other side of the story all the time," he lamented. "It is a rockin' country song about John McCain and everything he done for this country, and what he's done to get to this point, to be the leader of the free world."

THIS IS THE MAN JOHN RICH SUPPORTS? SO, WE CAN SAY WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT NOW THAT JOHN RICH DOES NOT SUPPORT OUR TROOPS OR OUR VETERANS.

McCain's Voting Record: He Does Not Support Our Troops and Veterans

September 2007: McCain voted against the Webb amendment calling for adequate troop rest between deployments. At the time, nearly 65% of people polled in a CNN poll indicted that "things are going either moderately badly or very badly in Iraq.

July 2007: McCain voted against a plan to drawdown troop levels in Iraq. At the time, an ABC poll found that 63% thought the invasion was not worth it, and a CBS News poll found that 72% of respondents wanted troops out within 2 years.

March 2007: McCain was too busy to vote on a bill that would require the start of a drawdown in troop levels within 120 days with a goal of withdrawing nearly all combat troops within one year. Around this time, an NBC News poll found that 55% of respondents indicated that the US goal of achieving victory in Iraq is not possible. This number has not moved significantly since then.

February 2007: For such a strong supporter of the escalation, McCain didn't even bother to show up and vote against a resolution condemning it. However, at the time a CNN poll found that only 16% of respondents wanted to send more troops to Iraq (that number has since declined to around 10%), while 60% said that some or all should be withdrawn. This number has since gone up to around 70%.

June 2006: McCain voted against a resolution that Bush start withdrawing troops but with no timeline to do so.

May 2006: McCain voted against an amendment that would provide $20 million to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for health care facilities.

April 2006: McCain was one of only 13 Senators to vote against $430,000,000 for the Department of Veteran Affairs for Medical Services for outpatient care and treatment for veterans.

March 2006: McCain voted against increasing Veterans medical services funding by $1.5 billion in FY 2007 to be paid for by closing corporate tax loopholes.

March 2004: McCain once again voted for abusive tax loopholes over veterans when he voted against creating a reserve fund to allow for an increase in Veterans' medical care by $1.8 billion by eliminating abusive tax loopholes. Jeez, McCain really loves those tax loopholes for corporations, since he voted for them over our veterans' needs.

October 2003: McCain voted to table an amendment by Senator Dodd that called for an additional $322,000,000 for safety equipment for United States forces in Iraq and to reduce the amount provided for reconstruction in Iraq by $322,000,000.

April 2003: McCain urged other Senate members to table a vote (which never passed) to provide more than $1 billion for National Guard and Reserve equipment in Iraq related to a shortage of helmets, tents, bullet-proof inserts, and tactical vests.

August 2001: McCain voted against increasing the amount available for medical care for veterans by $650,000,000. To his credit, he also voted against the 2001 Bush tax cuts, which he now supports making permanent, despite the dire financial condition this country is in, and despite the fact that he indicated in 2001 that these tax cuts unfairly benefited the very wealthy at the expense of the middle class.

So there it is. John McCain is yet another republican former military veteran who likes to talk a big game when it comes to having the support of the military. Yet, time and time again, he has gone out of his way to vote against the needs of those who are serving in our military. If he can't even see his way to actually doing what the troops want, or what the veterans need, and he doesn't have the support of veterans, then how can he be a credible commander in chief?

Oh, good grief. Will these people never learn how easily the republicans manipulate them with a country western singer waving the flag and singing about kicking someone's butt? McCain disdains and jokes about them behind their backs. I'm sure he considers them fools. Give them a little red meat and watch them drool on cue.

Watching cable and network news or reading the newspapers, one is presented with a world dominated by conservative voices, stridently self assured and on message. However, every once in a while, reality creeps in, and we get a glimpse of just how empty and dispirited the GOP really is. The contrast is remarkable.

The stench of ignorance that travels with this "musician" is overwhelming.

It's one thing to be ignorant. It's quite another to be PROUD of your ignorance.

Just one example: How can you be speaking German AND living under the flag of Japan?

Oh, well. At least all those Hillary voters in W. Virginia and Kentucky have somewhere to go.

The Florida Republicans threw a free barbeque with big name country stars performing and only "several hundred" McCain supporters attended- that poor attendance probably p*ssed off McCain.

To the person concerned about Obama's "purple" lips - wake up! Many ethnic groups have lips and gums that are darkly pigmented but also very healthy. Give me Obama's dark lips and gums over McCains teeth and gums that appear to be yellow and unhealthy. Obama's smile is much more appealing than McCain's.

Children, because obviously that's what you are. Children, grow up. Obama is a rock star but that is not what makes a President. McCain does not need adoring fans going ga-ga over him. He is a responsible, experienced, patriotic American. Face it. Please grow up by election day.

You know, JLMEALER, I did a google search on the poverty bill that you mentioned. It's called S.2433 in Senate jargon.

But the funny thing I've noticed, though, is that the only people who are really talking about this bill are sites like WorldNewsDaily and FreeRepublic--which even amongst conservatives are hardly "mainstream" sites.

So, is this really something to be worried about, or is this more "The sky is falling!" trolling from the wingnut, neo-con faction of the Republican party?

Let's just take a look at a few lyrics from Mr. Cash's signature song, "Man in Black":

Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone.
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.

I wear it for the sick and lonely old, For the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold, I wear the black in mournin' for the lives that could have been, Each week we lose a hundred fine young men.
Well, there's things that never will be right I know, And things need changin' everywhere you go, But 'til we start to make a move to make a few things right, You'll never see me wear a suit of white.

Huh. Maybe we should dig him up to ask him who he's endorsing, 'cause gosh-golly, that sure leaves doubts in my mind about his priorities.

Oh, wait. No it doesn't.

Oh, and if the comment by someone claiming to be John Mealer and head of a company, I sure hope he puts more effort into reading legal documents than he does to researching his "Obama's World Poverty Bill". I did exactly as I said and did a Google search. I discovered it started in the House of Reps (not the Senate, so its not Obama's bill by any stretch), and passed with strong GOP support!! And it seeks to help fight global poverty by spending a total of about $840 billion...OVER 15 YEARS!!!! That's half what we're spending in Iraq. In today's world, this is NOT a lot of money. And his other whacko claims...well, go do your own research, because they claims are exactly that...WHACKO!

I've read McCain's energy plan
http://www.johnmccain.com//Informing/Issues/17671aa4-2fe8-4008-859f-0ef1468e96f4.htm

The major thrust of his plan is more drilling and more nuclear reactors.

He wants to enforce existing CAFE standards for vehicles--big deal. We're not going to significantly reduce our dependence upon foreign oil or curb greenhouse gas emissions unless the CAFE standards are raised to at least 35 mpg.

He wants to give a $300 million prize to whoever develops a better battery for electric cars. BFD...that's as much as we spend in a few days of fighting in Iraq. If you want to see a next-generation high-capacity Lithium Ion battery developed in a hurry, pony up a few billion to fund the effing research itself, like we did with the space program. And while you're at it, fund development of a higher-efficiency electronic motor.

He says that he likes the idea of "alcohol fuels," though he doesn't have any actual plan to promote their use. He wants to eliminate subsidies for corn ethanol, but he isn't going to actually invest anything to help make cellulosic ethanol economically competitive. Wishing isn't going to make it so.

He says he wants to encourage the development of alternative energy sources such as wind, solar and geothermal, but doesn't want it so bad that he's willing to provide anything other than existing tax credits. That's not going to get it done.

In short, McCain's energy plan totally sucks, unless your object is increasing the profits of Bechtel and Exxon-Mobil and the like.

Obama, in contrast, can go anyplace in the country and thousands of people will turn out. Forget Gallup's "likely voter" calculation. When it comes to energizing voters and generating enthusiasm, McCain just isn't competitive. That's why he's going with those attack ads. Unless he lowers public enthusiasm for Obama, he has no chance at all to win.

Why is it when a music, TV or film star comes out for a Democratic the Republicans get all up in arms about the Hollyweird elite, how out of touch they are [even though most come from middle-class families], how naive they are that they don't understand the issues clearly and/or how un-American they are. Yet when a star comes out for a Republican candidate not a word is said. As a Democrat I'm glad that they are a few stars who support the Republican cause and I am glad that we live in a free country where their opinion can be heard. Too bad Republicans think that the only opinion that should be heard is one that echoes their party line. BTW, who is this C/W "star?" I've never heard of him. If he's only able to draw out a couple of hundred people to this McCain "extravaganze" just how big of a star can he be? To quote Obama, "McCain is that all you got?" Ha! Ha!

JOHN McCAIN'S 3R ECONOMIC PLAN 2008
Abbreviated version
Progressive thinking Republican Candidate John McCain comes through for America with his 3R economic plan. In the persona of Theodore Roosevelt, McCain's plan just makes sense.
FIRST , keep in mind that to drop the fuel tax, the local gov'ts would crash. We must use the 3R to replace taxes lost from replaced fuel through green energy (Yes, we have it ready to go!)
www.betterconstructed.com
1. RETHINK: America must see globally on what America is capable of in our current state of technology, engineering and meet the demands that face the world.
Private Sector framework is in place and current laws allow the 3R to happen. The Progressive attitude of John McCain to get things done by crossing party lines will resurrect America.
2. REFORM: The American people must demand higher quality products and less restricted trade routes for Made in USA components. We will lead the way of MFG again!
The USA will reform its dead manufacturing base
3. REINVENT: America and Americans must reinvent themselves to reach and maintain these standards and by sheer American ingenuity, control the world's marketplace in the competitive manner, as the USA has always been proud to be #1.
NUTS AND BOLTS of the plan are simple.
Billions of savings equates to millions of lost tax revenue from energy companies. The US needs a separate tax revenue source before we can move away from fossil fuels.
McCain 3R solution.
McCain's 3R is about technical, closely monitored and rapid hands on training from pros to create new pros. Thousands of currently-job-displaced "once leaders in the manufacturing arena" will be asked to train and play instructor rolls in the 3R plan. Paid, of course, as these new leaders will help create a whole new style of prosperous America. A massive restructure providing thousands New American MFG means millions of new jobs for infrastructure alone.
We have the buildings, needs and infrastructure to do this!
New jobs is the mainstay for Creating a new guard for Social Security.
This is the new place for financial speculators to invest!
McCain's Progressive nature embodies Theodore Roosevelt more than any US presidential candidate in history since the original Rough Rider blazed the greatest era of growth in America.
We need John McCain to lead our nation with the same type of change.
Men and women of all races on equal ground operating their own businesses or taking part as an employee. No more hyphenated Americans! Thinking like Theodore Roosevelt all the way to a stronger America.
www.betterconstructed.com
THIS 3R DRAFT COURTESY OF:
John Lewis Mealer, Founding President of Mealer Companies

Obama's speeches and website outline his plans.
IF Obama is elected he would crush this nation by doing the following:
Obama's World Poverty Bill (Google it) would be passed and take ALL of the US Gross Domestic Profit earnings to give to the UN for distribution to African nations (seriously, GOOGLE IT) (All 7%. Which is the US profit margin).
Guns would be also gathered up according to Obama's Global Poverty Bill plan (Did you Google it yet?)
Obama plans to heavily tax the investor class and no new small businesses would come into being (esp with the bank failures going on at the moment and no new loans being issued).
America would stagnate and begin to fall apart without small business growth.
Obama's tax on the investor class also takes away incentives for lower classes to strive to become wealthier people.
Did you hope to begin your own business someday?

Obama says NO! Only Obama's guidelines of new businesses and new business owners with or without training to run a business.. He could care less.
Obama must keep us in our place, after-all.
Obama would immediately tax the large corporations which are already just barely balanced between the democrat instituted American Workers Union ridiculous demands and simply closing up and moving overseas or to Mexico.
The USA corporate infrastructure would be destroyed within a year.
Obama would force the remaining small businesses to pay totally unaffordable health care for employees and they too, would close up and go out of business even before finding health care, IF it were available.
This will really hurt the women business owners who employ mostly younger women in retail, who have higher health care coverage.
THEN Obama comes up with some LIE that he wants to give small business $5K per covered worker. Do you realize how many workers there are in small businesses throughout America? How would he pay for those TRILLIONS?!! Talk about not even thinking about how grand of a lie he tries to weave.
Obama will over tax and over extend this country so quickly and at the worst time that we will DIE as a nation.
If you want the USA to watch America die, then you surely want Obama to become president and vice versa.
Obama wants to keep us "dumb and stupid... and in our place, and clinging to our guns, faiths and ideals"... Not his quote, exactly, but the same words, thoughts and deeds from Obama's 'better-than-thou crowd'.
This is real life.
McCain 3R Plan is a start, but Obama's view is obviously the end of the USA.

I keep my eyes wide open all the time

Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you

So, sure -- in an ironic way -- it can be taken as an allusion to McCain, who left his accident-disfigured wife for a skinny beer heiress.

I'm very happy that Mccain has finally gained media attention after Whinning all week about Obamas successfull trip abroad. Especially the fact that Mccain made this break through without any substance or evidence at all. Mccain clearly won the week according to John the host of Race to the White House where Rachel Maddow was paired off with 4 conservatives to argue how and Why Mccain won the week. Mccain won the week with his Britney Spears and Paris Hiltion ads inwhich Mccains' ex staff members and supporters said it was distasteful and lacked substance. Mccain won the week, due to his race card that he accused Obama of using not to mention that Obama spoke in greater detail several times before. I heard all week how Mccains ads were comical, lacked substance, commentators and the pundits criticized it but still Mccain won the week because he got the media to talk about what the Mccain campaign wanted to talk about. So, Mccain is accusing Obama of god like personal attacks and calling him a celebrity as if Obama thinks its all about him but Mccain wins when he diverts the conversation to be all about him which was a bunch of nothing. So why bother criticizing the candidates of having no substance if Mccain could win a week on no substance. My question is, if Mccain can take risks of attacking Obama on fairytale ads that are false and distorts his image and still win the media over,( even though I thought the candidate that really wins is the one who speaks about real issues voters are concerned about), would Obama win the week if he made true accurate ads of why Mccain shouldn't lead due to his 52 flip flops on issues, and his repeated gaffes and mistakes on serious issues like the War in Iraq and Afganistan, Taxes, and Immigration reform? I think Mccain lost this week because he lowered his standards for political expedency being that he said he would run a respectful campaign. Lying about your opponent is the opposite of being respectful. The truth is Mccain cant compete fair with Obama because Obama is a much better candidate, a better speaker, he draws larger energized crowds. He can deliver a speech better and go into details about foreign policies or his economic policies without making a gaffe. Mccain on the other hand can't remember what he said during a interview on Monday during a interview on Wensday. These are the real differences with the candidates and Mccain don't want to talk about that neither does the media. The media has given Mccain an excuse over and over again. When will the media, pundits, commentators realize that Mccain with all of his experience may not be ready at 72 years old to lead our country. This is a serious issue especially after having 8 years with Bush. I think the media should take this election more seriously and not sink to the low standards of a desperate campaign.
