Glenn Beck caught a lot of heat from the likes of Bill Bennett for his keynote speech at CPAC. While Bennett made some good points in his critique, McCain has provided a living example of exactly what Beck was talking about. Beck likened the Republican party to an alcoholic who can't admit to having a problem. Inherent in that metaphor is an alcoholic that blames others instead of himself.

Enter John McCain and the 2008 bailout, courtesy of AZ Central:
In response to criticism from opponents seeking to defeat him in the Aug. 24 Republican primary, the four-term senator says he was misled by then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. McCain said the pair assured him that the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program would focus on what was seen as the cause of the financial crisis, the housing meltdown.

"Obviously, that didn't happen," McCain said in a meeting Thursday with The Republic's Editorial Board, recounting his decision-making during the critical initial days of the fiscal crisis. "They decided to stabilize the Wall Street institutions, bail out (insurance giant) AIG, bail out Chrysler, bail out General Motors. . . . What they figured was that if they stabilized Wall Street - I guess it was trickle-down economics - that therefore Main Street would be fine."
This is utterly pathetic. John McCain, the man who actually cast the vote is blaming someone other than himself for casting it? If McCain was misled by Paulson, how does he explain the fact that so many of his constituents were not?

How long is it going to take McCain to blame Obama for misleading him when McCain told a town hall on October 10th, 2008 that there was no need to be "scared" of Obama as president.

I'm beginning to get the sense that the Council on American Islamic Relations is on the brink of being completely exposed for what it is - a front group for Hamas and, by extension, the Muslim Brotherhood. P. David Gaubatz, author of Muslim Brotherhood obtained 12,000 documents from CAIR's offices when his son, Chris posed as an intern there and instead of shredding the internal documents, he kept them.

Recently, a judge ruled against CAIR when the latter attempted to re-file its suit against Gaubatz, saying such an effort was "moot" because there was nothing new to be brought.

Now CAIR is demonstrating the dogged determination of Alinsky-ites as well as the desperation of a trapped animal. WND reports:
On the heels of a major setback in federal court, the Council on American-Islamic Relations is "throwing a Hail Mary pass" to keep its "Muslim Mafia" lawsuit alive by issuing subpoenas to a prominent counter-terror expert, says a lawyer for the two men who probed the Muslim group's terror ties in a sting operation.

"The timing of their request is a sign of desperation," said Daniel Horowitz, representing former Special Agent P. David Gaubatz and his son Chris, who recovered thousands of pages of incriminating CAIR documents meant for a shredder while posing as a Muslim intern.
So who is the counter-terror expert CAIR wants brought into the case? Center For Security Policy's Frank Gaffney. It would appear that there is a touch of paranoia at work here too. CAIR has issued the subpoena for Gaffney's testimony because they want to know what was said / exchanged between Gaffney and the Gaubatzes. In addition to this having the feel of a "Hail Mary Pass" as Gaubatz attorney says, it is also indicative of how much money CAIR must have at its disposal.

Here is the subpoena calling for Gaffney's testimony.
