At the big White House meeting to save the economy yesterday, John McCain played bailout spoiler. Besides staying silent for 40 minutes, McCain offered no specifics and refused to say which side he was on in any bailout scenario. One person close to the negotiations said, “Bush is no diplomat but compared to McCain he’s Cardinal freaking Richelieu.” McCain said that he knew Cardinal Richelieu and please don’t drag his good friend Richie into this.
Yesterday Bush said, “If money isn’t loosened, this sucker could go down.” Today, ice princess and White House press secretary Dana Perino slipped when she said that Bush was not referring to the country as the sucker that could go down. No, Perino said, the sucker is the American people. Has been for 8 years.
Considering McCain’s incoherence and total lack of leadership and understanding of the economic crisis, Obama’s people have a new ad up. In it they say that McCain agrees with Bush more than 90 percent of the time and with Herbert Hoover 100 percent of the time.
McCain loves to talk about his time in VietNam. You watch, tonight at the debate he’ll say he was against the economic bailout cause the last time he bailed out he was a P.O.W.for 5 and a half years.
Gtreat. Just what I want in a President – a hot-head who brings up VietNam more than Walter Sobchek, the gun-toting, quick-to-anger character played by John Goodman in The Big Lebowski.
John McCain can be compared directly to the Wall Street meltdown. He’s old,
white, rich, with no idea as to how he got where he is today.
