John McCain is soaring to new heights of hypocrisy on his wife’s
personal jet. He flies around the country bent on duping the public into
believing he’s “one of them,” a regular guy who can empathize with
Americans facing an overwhelming economic crush. What’s more, he
disparages those who oppose his ridiculous policy proposals as “elitist.” But who’s the real elitist?
The REAL McCain is a multimillionaire who owns ten luxurious homes. The
REAL McCain backs President Bush’s tax cuts for big corporations. The
REAL McCain empathizes only with the interests of our nation’s wealthy
minority, not its money-strapped majority. But far too many are buying
into McCain’s deceit because the corporate press won’t present the whole
picture, so we created this video to educate the public about the REAL
Together, you have been a force in making sure The REAL McCain videos
have been seen by nearly 6.5 million people. But as Frank Rich noted in
his New York Times column yesterday, 40% of Americans hear too little about McCain from the mainstream media, meaning “the public doesn’t know who
on earth John McCain is.” That’s why it’s crucial you ensure this video
is seen by as many as possible, and that we use each and every tool at
our disposal to get the word out. Send this on to five friends and
family members, and tell them to send it to five people they know. Get
it to your local news outlets and blogs and networking sites like Digg.
Raise hell about McCain’s economic duplicity!
AFL-CIO President John Sweeney summed it up best when he said McCain
“simply doesn’t understand the challenges America’s working families are
facing because he isn’t remotely affected by them.” It’s up to us to
tell people who McCain really is, a personal jet-setting elitist more
concerned with corporate lobbyists than hard-working Americans.
