Don't get me wrong I don't like the idea of the bailout, but the more I read the more I realize we need to do something. Maybe the deal on the table wasn't the right thing, but read this quote. From the NYtimes.
Mr. McCain had already met with House Republicans to hear their concerns. He later said on ABC that he had known going into the White House that “there never was a deal,” but he kept that sentiment to himself.
McCain knew but didn't say anything, and people are really going to vote for him. This man has absolutly no leadership capabilities, we can't afford to have him in the White House. Whether the republicans are right about this plan or not I really don't care at this point, but why waste everyone's time. McCain should have stood up and said, "wait, this isn't going to work so let's sit back down and keep working on this thing." Instead he walked into the meeting which appeared to many participants to be the final step before voting, and apparently stood idely by as the negotiations imploded. I wouldn't let this man run a 2 star diner, let alone the U.S. Government.
