McCain Swings at Barack Over Lindsay

9/17/2008 2:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John McCainJohn McCain has weighed in over Barack Obama's reported slap in the face to Lindsay Lohan. The Chicago Sun-Times quotes an unnamed high-level Barack source who says they rejected Lohan's offer to host an event because she "is not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us."

Tucker Bounds, a spokesman for the McCain campaign tells TMZ, "So let me get this straight -- they turned away Lindsay Lohan, but Barack Obama has friends like unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and convicted felon Tony Rezko? Maybe LiLo is just too upstanding for Barack Obama."

UPDATE: Tommy Vietor, Obama's spokesperson, just told TMZ, "Glad to see they're focused on the important issues over in McCain HQ."

Truth B Told    

Obama's attempts to LOOK THE PART by placing flags behind him when he speaks is a joke! Talk about "Product Placement". He is NOT presidential material and does NOT have the experience to lead a country let alone a town, city and State! NO experience running a business even! NO EXECUTIVE EXPERINCE AT ALL. How the hell did he get this far? Bought and paid for, that's how!

Who is this idiot Tara at #55?

California is THE AGRICULTURAL LEADER in this country. If you can read, look at the headquarters on the most of the produce in every grocery store in this country. While some of the 40 million Californians (There are only a little over 300 million Americans, you do the math) do work in the entertainment industry, there are far more of them involved in agriculture, thus the name "America's Bread Basket" has been used for almost a century as a reference to Cali. California also boasts leadership roles in shipping (accounting for probably half the products in your house at the moment), aerospace engineering and manufacturing (ever ride in an airplane), computer technology development (like the computer you are setting in front of now - ever hear of Silicon Valley), and OIL!

While many people don't care for California, no one can deny the impact and influence of California on our entire country.

All of you people are PATHETIC...fighting with your fellow Americans this way. It's suppose to be us against them, remember? The stuff I've read here just shows other countries how PATHETIC we are. All of you need to grow up, stop calling your fellow Americans names and show everyone we are ONE united country! Figure it out!!! Debate politics like ADULTS!!

Attention Linsday Lohan - You look Foolish
First , LiLo (among many other celebs.) has told a Lie about Palin , I believe, because she wants someone to scapegoat for her own personal problems (or maybe to be accepted by the hollywood elite crowd)
However :
Barack Obama's minister (Wright) is the real homphoebe (or anti-gay). Barack Obama even said that 'he can longer distance himself from ' (Wright) ... , 'because he has been like family to him'
Later ,after Wright held a press conference, for political reasons Obama distanced himself from Wright. The point being that Wright is a Homophobe and Obama stated that he has been like Family to him
Concluding that Lindsay Lohan looks very foolish in her statement.
Note: Wright is Not a real Rev. because he teaches Liberation Theology which teaches to equate marxism to religion , therefore eliminating the statue of jesus (in some cases) and replacing it with marxist solidiers.

What happend to John McCain. He used to be a great guy. Now he lies about everthing or makes stupid references about things he has no clue about. What a shame. I think he should give up politics, and take up line dancing and playing bridge with the folks in the assisted living home.

This is for No. 51
Obama: 3 years as community organizer, first black President of the Harvard Law Review, registers 150,000 new voters, 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with more than 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs and Veteran's Affairs committees... What more can I say besides

Obama/Biden 08' for America!!!

29. Oh please McCain. Let's talk about some real issues instead of a drug-addicted Hollywood personality.

I wouldn't want her campaigning for me either. She's not exactly a role model for ANYONE.

Give me a break.
----------------------------------------
But that's the kind of people who are voting for the big O and isn't he the one who is always saying he wants to Unite ALL Americans? That ALL Americans are Equal? Or is that just for votes? Cuz he sure isn't treating Lindsey Lohan as an equal and he wouldn't you or me either unless there was something in it for him.

Many Celebrities are addicted to the Democrat Party like a Cult Religion. There are many religions in the world and 'DNC'ism is just one more religion. Although there is nothing wrong with a new religion the problem is when you have a combination of politics and religion. The Hollywood DNC will demonize anyone who is critical of their party.
