Last Tuesday, superstar and activist Barbra Streisand performed at a special concert in Beverly Hills to help raise millions for the Barack Obama for President campaign. In case anyone had any doubts about where the singer stands in the 2008 presidential race, Streisand is speaking out publicly against Republican Presidential hopeful John McCain.

The strongly worded piece is called, “The Country Can’t Afford to Elect John McCain.”  It appears on Streisand’s website and as a blog on The Huffington Post

Streisand views McCain as part of the problem and not the solution. She says, “for 26 years in Washington, McCain has supported deregulation of the financial sector .” Also, Streisand criticizes the Arizona senator for supporting the Bush Doctrine and for picking  “… an unqualified running mate.” In a previous statement on her website, Streisand lambasted McCain for his selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

Streisand was once a Hillary Clinton for President supporter, but made the switch to Obama when he won enough delegates to secure the Democratic presidential nomination.

One Response to Barbra Streisand makes a case against McCain

    If Barbra could do the job of Sarah Palin, then she has something to say….but unless Barbra can be elected by the people of an entire state, to be what SP is…she should keep her sarcazim to herself.

    BS can sing, act and direct….but can she manage an entire state?

    SP can manage an entire state….she is not afraid of speaking in public…so would think she could act in front of a camera….and she probably can sing…

    With all that said….shut up Barbra
