McCain Forgets the Last Week Happened

McCain you crazy old coot! Don't you remember last week?
"Even after [Obama] refused to lift a finger to prevent this crisis, when the crisis hit, he was missing in action. He didn't start making calls to round up votes until after the rescue bill failed in the House and the markets crashed. We continue to see the price of delay today as the markets continue to fall. Today the Dow has fallen below 10,000. And yet, members of his own party said they felt no pressure to vote for the bill."
It's like the last week never happened. Has he forgotten that the "leadership" he showed in suspending his campaign led to the Republican Congressmen voting 2-1 against the bailout bill he emphatically endorsed? McCain and Palin said there might well be a Great Depression last Monday if that bill didn't pass, and the Republicans still told them where to shove it.

At least McCain was actively working to pass the bill. Its a whole lot better than "call me if you need me"

"Call me if you need me" is exactly what McCain ended up saying. He failed miserably to pass the bill, re-spended his campaign, and started making calls. This is exactly the "phoning it in" that Obama was mocked for.
