McCain made his money the old-fashioned way: family connections.
That's for public records to show. But wasn't it family connections for Al Gore (Al Gore Sr.) and John Kerry (Teresa Heinz) also?
As a side note...the cumulative value of McCain's homes does not surpass the value of some of the individual homes John Kerry owns.
As an Illinoisian, I can speak w/ credibility that IL has to be one of the most, if not the most corrupt, state of the union. Barry (as Barack preferred to be called in his younger days) is right in the middle of it all w/ Tony Rezko and Governor Blago. Won't it be fun if he's elected and he brings all the "favors" he owes people to DC?
Change??? That's all you'll have in your pocket after he and his obliging Democratic congress are done taxing you. Has anyone thought it could be change for the worse? The Germans voted for change too!!! I know Barry can and should not be compared to Hitler, but change is change. Isn't it?
People laugh at W for various reasons, but he had tons more experience (in the private and public sectors) leading in a variety of arenas, prior to his election, than Barry ever has.
I'm not a fan of McCain, but given the options, the choice is clear. Once you get behind the media hype/infatuation, personal nuances, and public personas, John is better suited to lead our dearly loved country.
I want my country and this world safe for my 2 little kids at home. I don't want them victims of another 9/11. McCain clearly is better prepared for that and has a set on him for the task. Leading is often doing the unpopular thing.
