John McCain and Keating Economics

The full documentary will be here on Monday. Here is the teaser.


The campaign says that McCain’s involvement in the Savings and Loan crisis directly impacts the current economic problems and is indicative of a mindset of deregulation and lack of oversight that led to the financial industry meltdown.

“His involvement with Keating is a window into McCain’s economic past, present, and future,” says Obama spokesman Dan Pfeiffer.

“The Keating Five involved all the things that have brought the modern crisis. Senator McCain has not learned the lesson, and has continued to follow policies that are going to produce a disaster,” former bank regulator William Black says in the Obama campaign’s new documentary-style Web attack.

The Obama campaign is not to be effed with.

ALSO: This documentary and other evidence of John McCain's long-term affair with deregulation directly ties into the current collapse of the financial markets. Unlike the McCain campaign's flailing character attacks, John McCain had a role in the plague now infecting the American economy.
