John McCain Cory-Bookers Mitt Romney

First it was Newark Mayor Cory Booker on NBC’s Meet the Press sandblasting the Obama campaign’s anti-Bain Capital jihad:


Now comes former presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Kiss My AZ) with this to say about presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney (R-Kick My Ass) and his Super PAC fundraising (via the Boston Globe’s AP story):

John McCain complains about big donations

WASHINGTON – Senator John McCain said in an interview posted online Friday that “foreign money’’ was helping fellow Republican Mitt Romney’s presidential hopes and singled out one of his ally’s most generous supporters.

McCain, the GOP’s 2008 presidential nominee, suggested casino developer Sheldon Adelson’s $10 million contribution to a pro-Romney super PAC, Restore Our Future, was a conduit for Adelson to use profits from properties in Macau to shape American elections. McCain also criticized the Supreme Court ruling that allows individuals and corporations to make such unlimited donations to nominally independent political action committees.

“That is a great deal of money. And, again, we need a level playing field and we need to go back to the realization that Teddy Roosevelt had: that we have to have a limit on the flow of money and that corporations are not people,’’ McCain said in an interview with PBS’s NewsHour.

The comment about corporations was a direct shot at Romney, who last year told a heckler at the Iowa State Fair that “corporations are people, my friend.’’ Romney’s critics seized on the comment as proof the wealthy candidate favored businesses over individuals.

(The hardreading staff notes that the New York Times piece on this matter did not note that connection.)

Don’t hold your breath for anonymous “John McCain is dead to us” quotes out of the Romney camp, the way Booker got done by the Obamanauts.

Republicans don’t eat their seed corn the way Democrats do.

  1. Bob Gardner says:

    There’s got to be a better way to wrap up this post than by comparing John McCain to seed corn.

  2. So, McCain is the OLD seed corn again, as opposed to the Engineered Seed who ran against Sen. French Vanilla?

    Anyway, Mrs. Mickey and I found out the hard way, socially, what happens to progressives who aren’t in love with Obama.

  3. Actually, I think this is a promising trend. People speaking what they consider to be the truth, regardless of politics. I don’t think it’ll continue.
