WASHINGTON (CNN) - John McCain's national finance co-chairman has stepped down - the latest adviser to leave the Republican senator's presidential campaign due to ties with lobbyists.
Former Texas Congressman Thomas G. Loeffler, a major fundraiser for McCain, is the fifth person to leave the campaign in the last eight days over questions about lobbying or past connections to lobbyists.
"Mr. Loeffler has resigned from his position with the campaign," McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds told CNN Sunday.
Well McCain is a Republican so this isn't anything new. He's way behind Obama's consistant message of change so these moves are not going to win him any additional votes because people aren't stupid. McCain is a chameleon, listen to how many times his messages have changed over the past year. The GOP is in trouble and they know it.
I am sure you are stupid and low-life. Use your own mind.
YOU ARE NOT DEMO! WE ARE NOT STUPID LIKE YOU!!!!
WAS HE GETTING CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM HAMAS???
OR WAS HE GETTING MONEY FROM THE SUDANESE GOVERNMENT??

This is good judgement on McCains part. His VP choice will determine just how formidable a candidate he will be in November.
I've read other comments that say a true democrat will not vote for McCain. What do you think of the Reagan Democrats? A lot of them, myself included, could not stomach the Democrats nominee. The same thing will happen if Obama is the nominee. You want to YELL race. Never mind the fact his doesn't salute the flag. Never mind that he sat in an Anti-American church for twenty years. Never mind he would rather vote present then take a stand. Never mind his wife is as Anti-American as he is. Never mind he can say he is for change and rely on the old guard for his support. Never mind he thinks of women as "sweeties". Never mind he has some very unsavory friends. Never mind he will meet with our adversaries, unconditionally. With a lot more 'never minds' in his resume, I will write Hillary Clinton on my ballot in November.
PLEASE!!! MCCAIN doesn't stand a chance
McCAIN IS LOSING HIS BEARINGS.
This is unrelated but I think it's worth saying. Afterall, the tax holiday idea did come from McBush.
Seems so many people in the US are blinded by the fact that consumption and dependence are at the core of this petrolum issue. Whether you lift the gas tax that saves people USD70 over the summer or not, Americans need to wean themselves off of their dependence on automobiles and reckless consumption. Lets stop with the smoke and mirrors tax holiday and focus on the core problem of over-exuberance.
Only Obama has the math right..
Chris: Don't send Charlotte to us in Canada, eh. She would not get a very good reception.
But if you Americans are short sighted as you were in electing Bush and miss a once in a life time chance to elect a WORLD leader, send Barack to us...we will embrace him and see both the white and black in him.
Funny how so many people fail to remember that McCain was one of the Keating 5. He took hundreds of thosands of dollars in cash and gifts in order to protect Keating's Lincoln Savings and Loan. When it collapsed from corruption, McCain and his wife walked away with fat pockets and tax payers got stuck with a $3,400,000,000 bill from his corruption scandal. Once a crook, always a crook.
