Racists Blast John McCain’s Black Daughter-in-Law. 5 Things to Know about Renee Swift.

Jack-McCain-married-Black-woman-Renee-Swift

When news hit that Sen. John McCain’s son, Jack, married a black woman, Renee Swift, not everyone was happy for the newlyweds.

As we reported in our story yesterday, people posted on the Senator’s Facebook page — many cheered the couple, many others posted racist comments — and they brought up President Barack Obama, the race of Sen. McCain’s daughter-in-law and political leanings under the comment section on the photo album.

One commenter, Diann Daily, wrote: “No wonder McCain has crawled into bed with Obama…His son married a black girl! McCain is a RINO and a TRAITOR! Eeeewwwwwwwww…..”

And others followed suit, with many calling him a “traitor.”

Then there are comments like these, from George Dwyer, who wrote “Did someone seriously post about this dude marrying a black chick like it was a bad thing? What dimension are you living in? Is it possible to be that ignorant in the year 2013?”

So who is Renee Swift?

1) She’s 29-years-old,a captain in the USAF reserve and she met Jack McCain while they both were  stationed in Guam.

2) Renee is a graduate of San Diego State University-California State University, and she works as a Chief Financial Officer at 36th Medical Group, Andersen AFB, according to her LinkedIn page.

3) We also checked out her Twitter feed (she’s already changed her name to be Renee Swift McCain!) to discover that she’s a reality TV junky. (A woman after our own hearts!) She watches Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County” and counts herself as a Heather Dubrow fan, but thinks that “Married To Medicine” is “the most ghetto show ever!” She’s also a master Yelper — she’s been reviewing restaurants and hotels on the site for years. Like many of us, she hates being stuck in black hair salon shops for hours, and she’s a foodie who loves trying new recipes.

4) She posts: “I am of mixed decent but my hair curls more towards black and she flat ironed, cut and styled my wild, humidity destroyed hair, it turned out beautifully. She also does relaxers and marcels!” she once reviewed of a hair dresser.

5) In 2010, (we’re guessing right before she started dating Jack McCain!) she replied to a friend on Twitter who talked about the boldness of “white boys” hitting on black women, saying “The WBs aren’t all that bad…. Might give it another go…”

And give it another go, she did!

Her latest tweet: “After a fabulous weekend, off to Africa with my handsome husband! Thank you for all the love and support from family and friends.”

Just responding to Carlos69 re blaming Obama for the state in which we find this country. About the health insurance debate -- people who don't have health insurance get sicker and end up with surgeries and treatments that cost so much that they lose their homes and have more bankrupcies. Bankrupcies cost our society. These homeless people and uninsured people who end up on social services and medicaid cost the country money too. As for the crappy job market, the wealthy who own businesses manufacture outside the USA and all the jobs involved in manufacturing are out of the USA.  Get a load of these designer clothing companies that manufacture their stupid designer clothing outside of the USA using dirt-cheap labor and then sell their very overpriced clothing, purses, shoes, and jewelry to the suckers here that overpay for their "designer" crap. They make immense profits at Americans' expense. As for these wars, there are people in power who make money on wars. Alot of jobless people go into the military because they will have a salary and healthcare and an education. When a war is over our service people expect to come home to job opportunities and guess what. Jobs aren't there the way that they should be even for those of us who aren't in the military. If they all come home the unemployment situation would be so much worse than it is now. Instead of keeping wars going to smokescreen how bad the unemployment is we need to stop allowing all these companies, not just clothing companies,  to keep manufacturing outside the USA, We have to put money into American jobs, not in wars. We need to stop major companies from hiring only lots of part-timers so they don't have to give benefits. And, getting back to the original issue re McCain's son marrying a black woman, we should be so beyond that being an issue in this day and age. She is lovely, she is an accomplished educated woman and the young couple deserves happiness.

Carlos, I understand your frustration, and we are all quick to judge people, until we walk in their shoes. Obama has a cabinet that he relies on Just like you would have if you were President. They are not going to always get it right. John F Kennedy, even Nixon sold us out to China, and Clinton finished. We were in a mess when Obama took this job and people seem to think that Obama can pull a magic wand out of his ass to make to make all things right. This man has been ridicule throughout his campaign and he tries to be very attentive the American people, and he probably will hug and sit down with you if you made an appt. Stop criticizing the man help him if you can. why hold on a good idea if you have one. TaTa!!

Carlos, they all are crooks. I think you guys are really hard on Obama, when you should have more hard on the crook, and thief Bush. Their family have been mix up in both Osama Bin laden family and that's why he wasn't interested in searching for him. Bush dad was involved in the assassination of President Kennedy. He went to Iraq on false principles. and yet we still praise that piece of shit. Obama can't please every body though he tries. Another thing I wonder what your critical ass would do if you were in office. I know,   NOTHING!!

He married the woman, not her color.  Obama's color is not why he is the worst president we have had, its his socialism and love of Muslims, as well as screwing up our economy and making one bad decision after another without listening to the  American people is his problem, or I should say he is our problem. At first I was glad we finally had a black president, but I wish it had not been this black man, or any of the other crooks from Chicago.

To the ignorant person who Brought up Barack Obama's name what does he have to do with these two getting married. I wish the couple a long and happy marriage. It's not about the color it's about the love they have for one another.

He married a Woman like any STRAIGHT man would do period. It's no different than Republican Kentucky Senator and Minority leader Mitch McConnell being married to Elaine Chao who happens to be Asian.

@1CatNamedThor I see we got off the topic of Jack McCain and his bride Renee Swift into politics and economics.  A lot of us will disagree on politics and economics but I hope most of us will agree that racial attacks on people of different skin color is wrong.  We are all the same race, the human race, and that's what counts.


As for the healthcare debate, it should be pointed out that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is only making matters worse, not better.  It is resulting in fewer healthcare insurance choices (less competition), fewer healthcare physicians and medical staff, and for many, significant increases in their healthcare premiums.  As more people are shifted over to healthcare exchanges there will be longer waiting periods and people who can't wait for certain things may die.  It will also cause our taxes to go way up.  A lot of it hasn't happened yet because Obama chose not to enforce those provisions.  Don't forget that it is the Internal Revenue Service that will be doing the enforcing, and if a person chooses to skip getting healthcare they will be fined $1000 or more.  People forget that there are and were free-market alternatives to socialized medicine that won't bankrupt our economy, but Obama and the Democratic Congress chose to pass this in his first year in office without debate.  That's when Nancy Pelosi said that we'd have to pass the bill to see what's in it.  Meanwhile they refused to pass a mandatory federal budget.

Regarding manufacturing, most companies that outsource do it because taxes are too high here and there's too much excess regulation here.  It's often the only way to stay in business.  If you ever ran a business you would know that there's something called a "price point," a point beyond which customers will not buy the product.  Recently the Huffington Post published a phony study about McDonald's Big Macs being priced a dollar more to increase employee wages to $15 an hour.  When the study was investigated in turns out that the price of a Big Mac would have to go up to $8 to $10 each, and that would included all the franchises.  The thing is, who in their right mind is going to pay that much for a fast food hamburger?  If' I'm going to pay restaurant prices for a burger then I'm going to go to a real restaurant for an expensive high-quality burger.  Yes, McDonalds can charge a fortune for their burgers if they want, but no one will buy them.  That means they won't sell food and won't stay in business.  So what's better, low-priced food and part-time employees or high-priced food and no employees?  That's reality.  That's how the market operates.  You can't just mandate how business set their prices unless you want a totally fascist economy.

@carlos69  you dont even know what you are writing mr carlos 69, u sound so ridiculos, Muslims are humans and should we hate every muslim because some are evil? Just like some Hispanics are criminals, do we then condemn all Hispanics. And mind u, President Obama did not screw our economy. I hate responding to crappy comments from people with substandard knowledge like yours.

Good night

@carlos69 right on and I am black I did not vote for Obama the second time I couldn't. I switched to republican,ill never be a democrat again,now that I have woken up im sorry I voted for carter or bill Clinton,if you think Obama is bad Hillary will be worst with her lies about bengazi,pretending to be sick so she would be question lighty about bengazi,plus when she was campaigning for pres, she didn't have the courage to tell about secrets Obama was hiding and there have been many like the good Egyptians are looking for obamas half brother malik cause he is in morses brotherhood of islam,  his cousin in Kenya who was p.m. but he burned 800 Christian churches cause he wanted to be pres. Obama went to the celebration

Hummm... Our President don't love Muslims any more than he loves you. He is a socialist only in the minds of the teagagged right. The economy was tanked by Bush's two unnecessary wars and the biggest tax break for the rich in American history. Our President is probably the best President this country has had since Truman.

@gabi532 - Thank you Gabi.  You too.  I notice on the traitor comments in the Facebook comments that they are directed at Senator John McCain because of his work on the recent immigration bill.  The traitor comments aren't connected to the children, they're directed at the father because of his immigration stance.  I wish they posters would take their anti-John McCain comments elsewhere and leave that one for the happy couple.  Let them have their day in peace.

@pistos1 @1CatNamedThor After facing the possibility of bankruptcy from a two day hospital stay for which I was charged in excess of $60,000, there is no way that anyone can convince me that the AHCA will make things worse. My Canadian uncle, who spent more than a week in the hospital was billed for less than 2K. There is a big problem when the incentive is to look for ways to deny coverage as opposed to looking for ways to keep people healthy. A system where thousands were uninsured, where people with chronic conditions were denied coverage or exceeded their caps, is a system fraught with problems. AHCA may not be perfect, but its a damn sight better than the current situation.

carlos69
carlos69

@marctbroussard  Now that is pathetic.  The economy had started into a fall while Mr. Bush was president, but we still had jobs, and when Obama came in he did nothing to help the job market or the economy, so it kept getting worse. And, in only four years Obama more than doubled our national debt.  He kept adding govt workers in D.C. which juust cost us more. Bigger government is not good government.

1CatNamedThor
1CatNamedThor

@marctbroussard I agree with you 1000%.  Obama  voted against going into Iraq. As horrible as 9-11 was, going into Iraq did not bring back any of our loved ones who were murdered on that day.  There are people who are making money on the wars while we need that money to be spent here to help get us through this horrible economy which George Bush left us.

@weekendwanderer @pistos1 @1CatNamedThor It's not either/or, either pick the American way or the Canadian way.  What about the Swiss way, which allows everyone to have insurance, is more cost-effective and uses free market principles?  Or, with the way it was before Obama but allow more competition by permitting people to purchase insurance across state lines?  Don't forget that hospital often charge more in one area because they are forced to charge less in other areas.  What if you had a medical savings account and offered a low-ball cash offer instead of being billed $60K?  Was that an option?  And isn't it true that often there are waits of six months or so to be seen in Canada, and that people can be denied necessary surgery there if they are not deemed to meet certain criteria?

I'll agree with you that the AHCA isn't perfect, but it's not better either.  It's not better when it forces employers to cut full-time employees' hours to 29 1/2 hours a week from 40, or lay off people.  A lot of people are losing their jobs and a lot of business are shutting their doors.  It also forces young healthy people to purchase insurance or be forced to pay thousands of dollars in penalties.

Finally, anecdotal evidence is just one person's experience.  Maybe your uncle was one of the lucky ones compared to the less fortunate ones.

We'll just have to agree to disagree on this topic, which has nothing to do with the original topic about racist comments against Renee Swift and Jack McCain.  Hopefully we can agree that racist comments are wrong.

@carlos69 @marctbroussard 

you do mean the same president that has sent more predator drones against "Muslim' extremists than Bush ever did? you mean the same President that invaded another country to get Osama bin Laden? I am not saying Obama has done a good or bad job but considering the incredible mess that Bush left (not to mention the free ride he gave to Cheney's cronies to the tune of billions of dollars) is expecting a lot. Not to mention that the president cannt do anything as long as congress has blocked him in any attempt to do anything. (that was their publicly stated goal! to prevent anything from happening! absurd!)  Bush by far is the worst president ever with poor decisions and expanding wars that bled us dry. 

The healthcare idea is one that is needed (fact) the implementation is poor due to the wonderful congress tweaks. ANYONE who researches healthcare honestly will see that we need something to avoid bankruptcy #1 cause of bankruptcy is medical bills), emergency room care that is never paid increasing our preimiums, lost time at work for people who wait until they are so sick they cannt move. . We just need everyone to get on-board and fix the problems instead of trying to vote every week to repeal it. We all have to  have auto insurance and no one complains but health insurance and people spin out of control. 

for those that say prices are increasing please point to the studies that support your statement?  (FOX doesnt count) 
Primiums have increased 100% in the last 10  years so show its not part of a normal increase.

@carlos69 @marctbroussard 

Marc run for President and shut the hell up. Obama didn't gave a thing to do with the gas and food tripling do your homework and stop running the streets because today Son, you have fail your history class

carlos69
carlos69

@marctbroussard  Oh yes. Almost forgot that Obama let the price of gas and the cost of food triple during his first year, and didn't try to do anything about it.. You said he voted against going into Iraq.   Are you sure about that because usually he only voted "present" if he voted at all. You should take a look at his voting record.

Obama may not be a practicing Muslim, but he has the heart of a  Muslim since he lived that life with his father during his formative years.

Any man who is elected president of the U.S. should not saddle us with his ideology and a huge healthcare bill that has already caused a rise in HC costs and which most Americans did not want in the first place.
