McCain Wounded Again

“To a certain extent, I think John gets hurt by this,” said CNN contributor Ed Rollins about the failure of the bailout bill to pass the House earlier today. “He obviously, at the end of the day, said he was for it. But more important than that, he said he was the one who would bring them to the table and to a certain extent he will be viewed now as not being able to do that.
“McCain is our nominee and [congressional Republicans] will do everything they can to help him, but they are not going to go over the cliff for him. I think the reality is, he made a big show coming in and at the end of the day it really wasn’t realistic for him.”

    What I’m looking forward to hearing is McCain tell us all about how the failure to pass the bill was Obama’s fault. Cause even though this mess was caused by a republican president and 2/3rd of House republicans voted no, the ensuing economic depression will still be the fault of those damn dirty liberals.

    Today and tomorrow are the last days for the McCain campaign. Once the new polls come out and markets finish melting down, McCain would need Bin Laden to walk into Disney World with a nuke strapped to his chest and set it off live on CNN to recover.
    I am flabbergasted this didn’t go down to the wire and never expected that should Obama win he do it in a landslide.
    But if Ohio and Florida do indeed swing his way we are looking at a 333 to 205 rout (perhaps as high as 359 to 179 if both North Carolina and Missouri continue their drift to Obama).

    McCain’s stunt last week was even worse than has been reported by the media. Despite his attempt to claim credit for bringing parties together and contibuting to the proposal, at the White House roundtable he was all but silent. At the meeting, in a conciliatory gesture, Obama asked him what he thought of the proposal. McCain refused to even answer him. And now he’s trying to pin the failure of the deal on Obama. Class act.

    Wow, your calendar must say something completely different than mine does.

    McCain landed in Iowa, stepped up to the podium and did just that. What were the odds.

    I’m just hoping Americans don’t get jingoistic, if Shrub suddenly starts pulling an October “surprise” invasion of Iran.

    Is your calender the one without the Windows anti-Y2K software?

    Via CNN.com:
    “From the minute John McCain suspended his campaign and arrived in Washington to address this crisis, he was attacked by the Democratic leadership: Sens. Obama and [Senate Majority Leader Harry] Reid, Speaker Pelosi and others.
    “Their partisan attacks were an effort to gain political advantage during a national economic crisis. By doing so, they put at risk the homes, livelihoods and savings of millions of American families,” Doug Holtz-Eakin, a senior policy adviser for McCain and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, said in a statement.
    “Barack Obama failed to lead, phoned it in, attacked John McCain and refused to even say if he supported the final bill. … This bill failed because Barack Obama and the Democrats put politics ahead of country,” Holtz-Eakin said.
