McCain on the bailout bill he supported last night: “This bill is putting us on the brink of economic disaster”

John McCain was on “Morning Joe” a few minutes ago to talk mostly about the bailout bill. His answers were, as usual, discombobulated as he ranted about Washington (as if he hasn’t served in D.C. for 26 years.) When pressed as to why he voted for the bailout package given all his ranting and complaining, McCain responded “This bill is putting us on the brink of economic disaster.” Does McCain know that he voted for the bailout bill?

Now, all those reporters and pundits who know John McCain so well (and used to ride around on the bus laughing at his stories) will just say, “Oh, that’s just John McCain being McCain.” But, if Obama made a screw up like that on the dominant issue in the campaign, it would be a huge story and those same reporters would be all over it. You know that’s true. And, it makes this video more relevant.


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
