Ok, so just took a quick look at how the economy is going and how the great McCain is saving us all from the crisis – I mean he’s there in DC doing his thing and all – New York Times reports:
“We’re in a serious economic crisis,” Mr. Bush told reporters as the meeting began shortly before 4 p.m. in the Cabinet Room, adding, “My hope is we can reach an agreement very shortly.”
But once the doors closed, the smooth-talking House Republican leader, John A. Boehner of Ohio, surprised many in the room by declaring that his caucus could not support the plan to allow the government to buy distressed mortgage assets from ailing financial companies.
Mr. Boehner pressed an alternative that involved a smaller role for the government, and Mr. McCain, whose support of the deal is critical if fellow Republicans are to sign on, declined to take a stand.
Come again? Yes, you’ve read it right – let me repeat it – “…and Mr. McCain, whose support of the deal is critical if fellow Republicans are to sign on, DECLINED TO TAKE A STAND.” This is what I am talking about! Is it just me or is this election just about the best thing ever?
