Lying By Omission Or Forgetfulness Apparently Is A McCain Family Trait

Apparently when folks are talking about being ready to lead the United States of America, candidates clearly do not have to upfront or honest about anything. I have never been exposed to such a half-truth telling and forgetful liar like John McCain. And apparently, it runs in the family.

Recently, John McCain's mama denied suing his first wife over some complete random knickknacks that could have been easily replaced by her new moneybags daughter-in-law Cindy. John McCain backed his mama's lie and Cindy said nothing, until reporters dug up the court papers. Then, the McCain family story was "oops, we forgot!"

And Miss Cindy McCain has a half-sister hide somewhere that she has completely failed to mention even stating that she was an only child in interviews. Not mention the nephews and nieces that she seems to be completely ignoring. And while she flies around Arizona to do her daily shopping, her sister's family lives modestly. That story gets a curt "no comment."

Interesting family values, your mama sues the first wife you cheated on, your mistress now wife makes her own half-sister and her family invisible, and you paint Barack Obama as an exotic other without a second thought when you have an adopted daughter of color hidden at home. Has anyone EVER seen that child at an event?

And during the recent Saddleback Church forum, John McCain told a completely bald-faced lie about how he has and would consult Civil Rights hero and fellow legislator, John Lewis. A couple of days later, Lewis revealed that statement to be a complete fabrication on McCain's part by stating "Sen. McCain and I are colleagues in the US Congress, not confidantes. He does not consult me. And I do not consult him." Folks are still waiting for John McCain to clean up that damn lie.

A lie is a lie whether it's by forgetfulness, omission, or on purpose. There seems to be no difference in the McCain household.

And while we're at it, that awful joke John McCain told about Chelsea Clinton (another joke, he claims not to remember telling) is rendered even more awful when you consider his own grown-ass daughter, Meghan McCain. What job does she have? Cause running up a $50,000 bill on American Express is not a job and neither is running a pop culture/fashion blog. Yet, her daddy thinks it's okay to make fun of extremely successful Chelsea Clinton.

Whenever I hear folks saying that John McCain is the more experience candidate, I always wonder do they what exactly do they mean by experience? You can always find someone that has been doing something longer that someone else, but HOW exactly did they do the things they did. If John McCain has been lying and cheating for the last 25 years, what good exactly is that experience to the American people?

great post.

I had forgotten about his "exotic" baby.

Yeah, McCain is a liar and the media has been complicit in keeping his lies alive. Five years from now all the reporters covering this campaign will have books about all the lies and how they failed to do their jobs.

Until I see a picture, the child doesn't exist.

Just another lie, far as Im concerned.

I thought the John Lewis name drop was rather random, cause i am SURE John woulda pulled his coat about voting against the King Holiday.
