“Throughout the entire debate, he didn’t say the words “middle class.” Not once.”——Barack Obama talking about John McCain while praising himself for Friday night.
I can’t say it enough. Unfortunately for Senator Obama, actions speak louder than words. John McCain was in Washington, not as part of a campaign stop but as a member of the 110th Congress, since last Friday working on what has become known as the “Emergeny Economic Stabilization Act of 2008”. Senators Obama and Biden chose to disregard their duties as members of this Congress and continue their campaign stops.
It is ironic that McCain can be/will be labeled ‘out of touch’ even though he is the only member of Congress currently running for President who could speak to the provisions BEFORE it hit the Internet. It is also ironic that if Pres. Bush signs and Senator McCain votes for this bill, Senator McCain’s support will be portrayed as ‘voting with Bush’ by the Obama campaign despite the presumed need for the bill by both parties.
It’s 3am. America is facing an economic crisis. The phone rings. Who do you want on the other end? John McCain who is already working on a solution? Or Barack Obama who gave specific instructions to his advisors to call only if he was needed? On November 4, you decide!
