Straight Talk From Sen. Johnny-Come-Lately September 25, 2008

In an inexplicable move yesterday, Sen. John McCain suspended his campaign for president and announced he would not participate in tomorrow’s presidential debate, citing the lack of progress in Washington on the proposed Wall Street bailout plan.

The move is inexplicable for a number of reasons, the first of which is that a mere ten days ago, Sen. McCain pronounced the fundamentals of our economy “strong.” Now, such a fundamental misdiagnosis of the state of our economy should not come as a surprise. Last December, Sen. McCain told the Boston Globe “The issue of economics is not something I’ve understood as well as I should. [But] I’ve got Greenspan’s book … and I stayed at a Holiday Inn last night.”

So Johnny has come lately to the economic crisis. And now he feels compelled to rush to Washington to solve it – and incidentally cast his first vote in the Senate since April. Where has he been? And what is his plan? Source Article
