But John McCain's behavior was, in my humble opinion, even worse -- insulting to the intelligence of the American people. For example, in a Sept. 26 press release McCain said: "Both parties in both houses of Congress and the administration needed to come together to find a solution that would deserve the trust of the American people. ... The difference between Barack Obama and John McCain was apparent during the White House meeting yesterday where Barack Obama's priority was political posturing in his opening monologue defending the package as it stands. John McCain listened to all sides so he could help focus the debate on finding a bipartisan resolution that is in the interest of taxpayers and homeowners."
On Sept. 29 McCain repeated: "Our leaders are expected to leave partisanship at the door and come to the table to solve our problems. Senator Obama and his allies in Congress infused unnecessary partisanship into the process. Now is not the time to fix the blame. It's time to fix the problem."
This is insane. Worse, it's disgusting. Does John McCain (or his handlers) think we have no ears? That we won't notice his nasty partisan jabbing while posing as a leader above the fray? Here's what our dysfunctional political system now encourages: The last man jabbing and jabbering thinks he's going to win.
Now if Gallagher would only recognize this same tendency in her beloved Gov. Palin she might almost qualify as an intelligent person.
