What can you say about a man who ran ads about winning the debate hours before it happened?Â The GOP presidential candidate took full credit for building a bailout coalition that he didn’t do, only to watch the vote fail and Wall Street further implode.Â I guess McCain doesn’t know much about leadership here either.
I love it when there’s video so we can’t quibble over what was meant or not meant.Â This “I’m suspending my campaign to deal with the crisis” was a massive fail on the part of McCain.Â
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said: â€œMcCain said he was going to lead the Republican charge, he was going to make sure that this was a bipartisan success. He called charge, and the Republican retreated. Thatâ€™s what happened here.”
I sure hope McCain has fun playing checkers with Bob Dole after the election.
