McCain Looks for Virginia Money

Tim Craig

Arizona Sen. John McCain, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, will be in Tysons Corner Monday for a high-dollar fundraiser for his campaign and the Republican Party.

The event, which will be held at the Ritz-Carlton, is being hosted by a cross-section of Virginia Republicans and business leaders, including Sen. John W. Warner, former senator George Allen, U.S. Rep. Tom Davis, Del. Christopher B. Saxman (Staunton), Ted Georgelas and Til Hazel, both developers, and P. Wesley Foster Jr., chairman of Long & Foster Companies.

People who raise or contribute $25,000 will be able to get their picture taken with McCain. Tickets for the reception range from $1,000 to $5,000, according to an invitation on McCain's website.

All Virginia's money is mine because I am the loved Dear Leader. I may choose McCain as my Chosen One for my post-partisan Nirvanah.

If I give $25,000, I get my picture taken with Sen. McCain.

Well, so much for his vaunted Campaign Finance Reform.

Is this the Leadership he wants us to Believe In? Looks like it's right out of the Reagan/Bill) Clinton/Bush 42 playbook.

The trolls who call him McSame really may not be that far off.

It must really hurt the Republicans that their candidate is worth very little, can't get donations on his merit, uses the most PATHETIC President we have ever had in our history to use his influence amongst the rich to offer funds, McCain can't bring in big crowds because he is too close to Bush.

As for his "war hero" status that is always debatable. When you destroy several jets because he didn't know what he was doing to begin with and destroyed the USS Forrestal carrier, spent 5 1/2 years as a POW, how can he be called a HERO when thousands of other Americans real HEROS were fighting and captured and were not given that distinction? ELITIST that's why! Although his father and grandfather were admirals and John was supposed to be ready to claim the same titles that where to be GIVEN to him, John McCain didn't make the grade, so we call him a HERO instead of admiral.

For as long as this so called "HERO" has been in the senate since 1981 he has voted AGAINST ANY bill that would give some care and increased benefits to our soldiers and vets. Until now 2008, running for President of the USA, he is given a diluted Montgomery Bill that he calls his sponsored bill and generous to our soldiers and vets.

My grandfather was a POW, served this country well as a tank operator in the Battle of the Bulge in WW II, several uncles that served in all various branches of our great military from Army parachuter, Army on the ground, Navy, Air Force, and my father a Marine, these great soldiers fought hard in the Korean and Vietnam war. Some were given medals and added ribbons, but none were given the distinction of HERO.

So how does John McCain get to be a HERO for being a POW for 5 1/2 years of being locked up?

Thank you Jerry EZ, TEXAS for helping us to continue our campaign of lies about the GI Bill.

New talking points will be issued shortly.
