Remember the Seeing the Forest Rule

-- by Dave Johnson

Remember the Seeing the Forest Rule: when a Republican is accusing it usually means it is something the Republican has been doing.

HERE is why the McCain campaign is falsely accusing Obama of somehow being involved with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: Loan Titans Paid McCain Adviser Nearly $2 Million,

Senator John McCain’s campaign manager was paid more than $30,000 a month for five years as president of an advocacy group set up by the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to defend them against stricter regulations, current and former officials say.

. . . “The value that he brought to the relationship was the closeness to Senator McCain and the possibility that Senator McCain was going to run for president again,” said Robert McCarson, a former spokesman for Fannie Mae, who said that while he worked there from 2000 to 2002, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac together paid Mr. Davis’s firm $35,000 a month. Mr. Davis “didn’t really do anything,” Mr. McCarson, a Democrat, said.

Well, now that it has proven that Davis never worked as an advocate for Fannie or Freddie and that he has not received a penny since 2006 I wonder if the NYTs and Davie-boy here will apologize for their libel?

Nah, Davie-boy and the "Paper of record" long ago threw out their professionalism, ethics, commitment to truth and democracy in favor of slavishly drinking the Kool Aid of the Democrat party.
