Max, the only thing worse than the vote was the complaining afterwards that Nancy Pelosi’s speech was too partisan. So they voted against the only viable measure to prevent a market meltdown because Nancy was mean to them?! That takes the cake.
And although the House GOP did its part to create this mess Pelosi is responsible for delivering her side. Losing 95 votes is the height of incompetence.
For John McCain, if he’s looking for a grand gesture, offering to help campaign and defend any member of either party who votes for this would be a nice start. But for now, McCain plays the partisan card. Is he rallying the troops on his side or pressuring Barack Obama to get his side in order? For now, no one is or appears to be in charge. I hope everyone has his excuses in order.
