John McCain laughed off comments by one of his staffers who, pointing to a Blackberry, said: “You’re looking at the miracle that John McCain helped create.” Many, including McCain, insist the remark was made in jest, but this writer refuses to accept such fear on the part of McCain supporters. It is time for the world to acknowledge that John McCain is among the most creative thinkers in the history of American politics. Who else had the daring to select an individual to run for the vice presidency whose knowledge of Russia consists of looking across the Bering Straits and seeing land? Who else could devise a health insurance scheme that would force about 20,000,000 people to abandon health insurance? Of course, there are liberal do-gooders like Barack Obama who actually believe the purpose of a health insurance plan is to get people covered by health insurance!! How ridiculous can one get!
The real story of John McCain’s leadership in development of telecommunication has yet to be written. He has slavishly served the interests of every telecommunication lobbyist who visited his office. He poured billions into tax benefits for telecommunications and other corporations so if the Blackberry was invented in one of these corporations, it only stands logical to recognize McCain’s creative leadership in making the wealthy wealthier which transforms into new inventions.
Of course, Barack Obama could not resist making another of his accurate comments concerning the elderly senator by noting, “If John McCain hadn’t said the ‘fundamentals of our economy are strong’ on the day of one of the nation’s worst financial crises, that claim that he invented the Blackberry would have been the most preposterous thing said all week.” It is liberal nit-pickers like Obama who actually believe telling the truth is the way to get elected in America!!
