Well, this is a Maverick move. Or maybe Senator McCain is just nuts.
“We haven’t heard hide nor hair of Sen. McCain in these negotiations,” said Schumer, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. “He has not been involved except for an occasional, unhelpful statement, sort of thrown from far away, and the last thing we need in these delicate negotiations is an injection of presidential politics.”
If Senator McCain was so entrenched in dealing with this corporate welfare bailout, then maybe. But he has not been involved and Senator Obama is right. Voters need a president who can deal with multiple problems at once. This is just another “Why do they hate America?” stunt.
