Liar



John McCain, whose lesson from his scandalous attachment to the Savings and Loan crisis seems to have unlearned, and who has spent years telling us he is "fundamentally a deregulator", now wants us all to believe that he is the man to deal with the current financial crisis.

That's right. After the past eight years, and in the midst of a near meltdown of the financial markets, he thinks we should give the Republicans another four years to run the economy.

After 26 years as the great deregulator, he expects us to believe he is going to make the SEC do its job.

We're not that stupid.

McCain and his Republican friends lack the competence to fix what they have spent the past eight years breaking. And frankly, I don't trust the great deregulator to do what needs to be done, no matter what he says on the campaign trail. It doesn't fit with his previous statements and behavior - he is either the biggest flip-flopper ever to run for President, or he is the world's worst liar.

Liar.

Defend the bad against the worse."
