Breaking: McCain Pledges to Serve Only One Term
Posted by Adam Blickstein

OK, well maybe not in such explicit terms. But if elected, in his mind, he'll have solved all of America's and the world's most pressing problems by 2013, so what's the point of even running again for re-election? On top of pledging this week to balance the budget by the end of his first term, McCain's already promised to:

  1. Use Russia and China to pressure "Iran to abandon its nuclear ambitions, and North Korea to discontinue its own." (NOTE: McCain also seeks to kick Russia out of the G8)
  2. Increase American ground forces by 200,000
  3. Create a League of Democracies to, amongst other things, stem genocide in Darfur and quell the advance of climate change
  4. Create years of robust economic growth.
  5. Upend America's system of taxation by implementing a flat tax
  6. Cure global hunger by ending the current world food crisis,
  7. Shepard the world through an era of low global inflation and a "much-improved" quality of life "not only in our country but in some of the most impoverished countries around the world."
  8. Increase health care for Americans and lower overall health costs
  9. Bring America to the precipice of "independence from foreign sources of oil."
  10. Revolutionize the decades old social security system without jeopardizing benefits while introducing individual retirement accounts
  11. Solve America's immigration problem with "tremendous improvements to border security infrastructure and increases in the border patrol, and vigorous prosecution of companies that employ illegal aliens."

Oh, and he also will win the war in Iraq, stabilize the greater Middle East, and have American "health care better than anytime in history". All within a balanced budget.  Again, what's left to accomplish? Why after 2012 have a President or government at all? Why aren't reporters asking the big question: how is he really planning on doing all of this? And is this all an attempt to avoid the second-term pratfalls that have plagued nearly every President in the past?

Librarian with McCain=Bush Sign Charged With Trespassing

McCain Camp Throws a 61 yr old Lady out of his event

Check the video of a 61 yr old lady on public property waiting in line for a McCain event that was open to the public.

She received a ticket for trespassing.

The question is who is going be John McCain's successor after his four years are over. The two main contenders for the VP spot Bobby Jindal and Mitt Romney appear to be more extreme copies of George W. Bush.

Perhaps when you went to some place far away Sohbet you must borrow it from friends you can get everything you want in this game Chat money to invest in other industry which will return you good profit. Sohbet when you look at Chat
the surface of the watches viaload great any cool Exsohbet from the city you live in and thought you knew nobody there Egitim Fourth, there were various signs of political conflict among shia. If they split 3 ways or 4 ways, the sunnis and the kurds could often be the Sohbet swing votes in the politics. If they felt they had political clout out of proportion to their numbers, they could settle in Sohbet and do politics and not feel oppressed.

A boaster and a liar are cousins-german.
