House rejects bailout 228-205 and John McCain has shown himself to be a politcal loser.
He used phony political tricks such as "suspending" his campaign to supposedly help fix the problem. McCain vowed to stay and work until it was fixed. Instead, McCain broke his word once again.
It will be a miracle for the Press to miss this McCain failure. The tactics have finally come back on him.
McCain was walking a tightrope with his political gambles.
I think the rope was cut today by his own party.
Even if the Republicans pass the bill later, the damage done won't be undone.
John McCain is not a good leader of Republicans and of himself.
By contrast, Barack Obama has been a leader all along on this issue.
I fault him for not being more aggressive in trying to help homeowners facing foreclosure but otherwise, Obama has shown himself to be Presidential.
Sometimes the best thing to do is to relax and project quiet strength.
