John McCain- the Choice of those who accuse the U.S. Government of funding ‘Black Genocide’

As noted in a prior post, John McCain has said that, even though Obama doesn’t support or endorse Hamas,   it is relevant that Hamas has said nice things about Obama.  The argument is apparently, if Hamas supports Obama – then that means that Obama implicitly supports their agenda.  This is a ridiculous argument, but as McCain apparently believes it, once again applying the ‘what’s good for the goose is good for the gander,’ principal here is the next in our series of who supports McCain.  This one is even a bit stronger against Sen. McCain as, unlike Obama with Hamas, McCain has sought out Rod Parsleys endorsement.

John McCain – the choice of French Workers

John McCain has said that while he knows that Obama opposes the goals and aspirations of Hamas, it is relevant that Hamas supports Obama.  As what is good for the goose is good for the gander, we should apply the same standard to McCain.  I shall be posting a series that looks at those who support Senator McCain.  Today’s installment is from the French workers.  It is clear that manufacturing workers in France are happy with the Arizona Senator for helping Airbus gain a major U.S. Defense contract.  While, McCain may tell workers in Michigan that manufacturing jobs are not coming back, he doesn’t say the same thing in France.

Ron Paul supporters shut down state GOP Convention

Here is an interesting development from Nevada.  It appears that Ron Paul delegates to the State Convention were able to overcome John McCain and were on the verge of increasing their number of delegates to the national convention.  Rather than accept this, the Nevada Republican Party shut down the convention.  Here is the AP article.

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Outmaneuvered by raucous Ron Paul supporters, Nevada Republican Party leaders abruptly shut down their state convention and now must resume the event to complete a list of 31 delegates to the GOP national convention.

Outnumbered supporters of expected Republican presidential nominee John McCain faced off Saturday against well-organized Paul supporters. A large share of the more than 1,300 state convention delegates enabled Paul supporters to get a rule change positioning them for more national convention delegate slots than expected.
