McCain the knee-jerk jerk

Read this, and realized, we’ve got another finger-pointer running for President. No, Christopher Cox hasn’t done a good job, but he wasn’t the one who voted to allow the deregulation of the banking industry many moons ago… no, that would be John McCain.

Republican presidential candidate John McCain told a crowd of Iowa supporters Thursday he would fire U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox.

“The chairman of the SEC serves at the appointment of the president and in my view has betrayed the public’s trust,” McCain said at a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “If I were president today, I would fire him.”

Dana Perino, President Bush’s spokeswoman, issued a statement saying Cox has the president’s confidence.

McCain said the SEC has “kept in place trading rules that let speculators and hedge funds turn our markets into a casino.”

While firing Chris Cox may sound great, what policies are you going to change John? How about going back and starting to recover some of shareholders millions that have been sucked out by our greedy hedge fund managers, bank CEO’s and the rest of the greedy bastards who have been living high off the hog on STOLEN money?

No, you don’t hear that from John McCain- since we can’t bomb them, let’s blame them- since we can’t fire missles at them, let’s just fire them.

I’ve hesitated to put this video up for a few days- but, with this joke of a course of action, I thought I’d showcase John at his best:
