Where’s your follow-up post somehow blaming it on the Jews?[/quote]
Yeah, thanks for reminding me…

The Jewish Crew That Helped Pave the Way to John McCain’s Nomination
Aug 28, 2008
If pre-convention polls are to be believed, John McCain enters the convention poised to pull in a greater percentage of the Jewish vote than any Republican candidate in the past two decades.
Martin Feldstein Endorses John McCain For President
Top McCain Adviser Linked to AIG Collapse
Marty Feldstein was a leading candidate to replace outgoing Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan in 2005, but is believed to have been passed over because he was a board member of AIG, which restated five years of financial reports by $2.7 billion the same year.
Key McCain advisors were lobbyists for shady lender
John Green, the senator’s chief liaison to Congress, and Wayne Berman, his national finance co-chairman, billed more than $720,000 in lobbying fees from 2005 through last year to Ameriquest Mortgage through their lobbying firm, disclosure forms reviewed by the Daily News show.
Ameriquest, which since has been bought out, was forced to settle suits with 49 states for $325 million. More than 13,680 New York homeowners got taken for a ride by the company, records show.
“They would be defined as the most blatant and aggressive predatory lenders out of everybody,” said Bruce Marks, head of the nonprofit Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America.

Speaking of Ameriquest “the most blatant and aggressive predatory lender”…
Roland E. Arnall, 68; Founded High-Risk Lender Ameriquest

Mr. Arnall, a Holocaust survivor who co-founded the Simon Wiesenthal Center, had resigned as President Bush’s ambassador to the Netherlands on March 7
When Jews and political money scandals collide
Let’s not forget that the American political establishment is still reeling too, after mega-lobbyist and self-styled Orthodox Jew Jack Abramoff was sentenced to five and a half years in jail last year for handing bribes to a long list of Republicans, including at least one congressman.
And although I am of course reluctant to spur on “Elders of Zion” conspiracy theory enthusiasts, we should nonetheless be asking ourselves why there always seem to be Jews around when politics and funny money meet. And the standard excuse, that there are “rotten apples in every barrel,” just won’t do, as the involvement of Jews in these cases is hugely disproportionate to their percentage of the population…
Jews represent barely 3% of the US population, yet if Jews were midgets, our own government would resemble Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.
