I mean seriously, WTF?
When Americans blame Republicans for the financial crisis by a margin of 2-1, a VP nominee whose approval rating dipped 10 points in a week, when a neck and neck race is suddenly breaking out-but not in your favor, what do you do?
If you’re John McCain, you suspend your campaign and say you need to be in DC to work on the financial crisis. I might give him the benefit of the doubt on this but for one thing. Obama called McCain’s campaign at 830 this morning, asking to issue a joint message about the need for bipartisanship in order to move past the crisis.
See, when you offer more of the same, with no ideas of your own, you do anything you can to win, whether you deserve the win or not. The problem for Johnny Mac is that people are beginning to see through the charades, and they’re pissed off. With this new stunt, McCain may as well give his concession speech.
