McCain said something that…well…didn’t make any sense.
As the farce is rolling on Barack Obama (invited by the president) and John McCain (rode into Washington on his white mule) attended a meeting in the White House with a few other people.
Still no deal. Cushty!
There are so many Americans against this deal it truly amazes me that it is still on the table – this is where McCain will look at those numbers and say he is against it. You don’t think? Well – he went to Washington thinking that he would be mobbed by Republicans baying that he save them, in actual fact he was positively ignored.
When you look at the long term of this – it will only mean that the recession is ongoing but it will mean that credit will be back on the agenda for those who can afford it. Just what Bush wanted. But is that going to help the ailing American economy? It will just carry on the Bush policy – but this time a whole chunk of the tax payers money will be riding on the whim of some guy allocating this ‘expenditure’ John McCain’s words not mine.
So is Johnny for or against this deal? I don’t have a clue – and neither does he.
“One of the concerns I’ve had over the last several days is that when you start injecting presidential politics into delicate negotiations,” Obama said, “then you can actually create more problems rather than less.”
Multiple sources said McCain didn’t say much. Two Democratic leadership aides said he didn’t speak until 43 minutes into the meeting.
