Joe Barton (R-Texas) just came on CNN and said there are not 50 votes in the House for the Paulson plan. In otherwords,the financial markets are flying on one engine for a while, with no guarantee of swift government intervention.
Isn’t McCain’s desperate move an admission that there is currently no president? I mean, why does everything hang on a senator from Arizona? Shouldn’t it be Bush who is handling this? We’ve long known that the emperor has no clothes, but McCain is making a “Republicans Gone Wild” video with this grandstanding.
Very suspicious that as soon as Obama is up 9% in the polls, all of a sudden the mess the Republicans made is so important that McCain can’t go on competing with his rival.
