McCain Works Bi-Partisan Deal; Obama AWOL

Well the facts concerning last week are coming in. John McCain worked across the aisle and achieved a bi-partisan and bi-cameral bailout bill to reality. Barack Obama stayed away from Washington until the President cajoled him into doing his actual job. Both McCain and Obama have a responsibility for which they are getting paid; which is working as a United States Senator and not running for President. One candidate took his responsibilities seriously while the other phoned it in.

As we look at the bailout we see where McCain's fingerprints are all over it. There is a provision in the bill to set up an oversight board called the Mortgage and Financial Institution Trust (MFI). This will help ensure future instances of corruption are rooted out before they become a problem. John McCain worked with House Republicans and brought them into the process. This after the Democrats conveniently forgot the to call them into the process according to Senator Schumer. Now Pelosi scolded the republicans but the democrats are the ones that failed in their responsibility. There is no doubt that McCain was instrumental in getting this bill to be fair and balanced between the taxpayers who are getting saddled with Democrat driven debt. The Republicans led by McCain ensured there were no golden parachutes for the CEO's of the corrupt Fannie and Freddie organizations. All we need now is for an investigation into the former CEOS and executives including current Obama advisors Jim Johnson and Franklin Raines.

Obama on the other hand was really AWOL. He only came to Washington after the President scolded him and called him back. Obama's plan is to stick with the status quo. Obama's stays with his lie about keeping to his $1000 tax credit. In light of this crisis it is obvious that Obama will not be able to enact a bill like this and keep the US government solvent. We will only borrow more money and go further in debt. Raising taxes on the rich never works. Look at the economies of Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Minnesota. All of these states have taxed and taxed. They now have over bloated budgets and economies in shambles. This year the US took in record tax receipts. Lowered taxes increase the coffers in government. What we need is less frivolous spending and more fiscal responsibility not increased tax rates in conjunction with tax giveaways. Obama also backed a provision that would have bilked the taxpayer out of another $57 billion dollars. Obama also backed a provision that would have given 20% of any profits to the corrupt Democratic Organizations such as La Raza and ACORN.

There is a huge difference between Obama and McCain. Obama neglects his responsibilities. Obama follows the leader and has zero ideas of his own. Obama was waiting for someone else to develop a plan so he could take credit for the plan later. Obama wants to change which political party controls the oval office. Obama wants to change which corrupt organizations reap the ill gotten benefits from the American government. John McCain works across the Aisle and has shown he will govern from the middle. John McCain took his responsibilities serious and worked a deal in this crisis that protected the middle class and is bi-partisan and bi-cameral. McCain will reform Washington and give the government back to the people. Obama is weak and ineffective, McCain is strong and independent.

It will be interesting to watch how the media will turn these facts and the truth into how Obama saved the day by staying away.

BS... You neocons are such idiots. Obama was in Washington working just as hard as McCain.

There is no truth behind this.

You guys really see the world through tinted glasses.

If you were honest, you'd see this for the political stunt that it is. You don't invite cameras to record phone calls to leaders you are making unless you are trying to score political points.

Obama has been on the phone working on this problem long before McCain even acknowledged the problem exisited (fundementals are strong?).

Obama did not return to Washington until after Bush cajoled him. Obama had to be coaxed into returning that is a fact.

Another fact, When McCain suspended his campaign Obama said there was no need to return to Washington. He said they could call him if he was needed. In other words Obama phoned it in.

Another fact, Harry Reid called McCain to return to Washington to rein in the Republicans and make them vote so the Democrats had political cover. The problem is McCain returned to Washington to ensure a bi-partisan plan was worked out.

Another fact; SOT Paulson called McCain to ensure the bailout was passed as a bi-partisan effort. No one called Obama. He had to be shamed into returning by the President.

Another fact, Obama wanted to continue campaigning and in fact did. Obama would not agree to delay the first debate because then all of his parroting of talking points would have been forgotten and he would of had to restudy. McCain was able to multitask by doing his job and preparing for the debate at the same time.

Another fact: Obama brought nothing to the table except for support of ACORN and La Raza.

Get the facts instead of believing Obama is infallible. Obama has been asleep at the wheel. He was to busy taking in money from the corrupt Fannie and Freddie CEOs to worry about the consequences.

Again Obama is phoning it in. Sure Obama claims he is working it on the phones; he is losing the issue currently. But where is the proof that he has added anything? Where's the proof in his policies? McCain was public with his position while Obama is AWOL. So who is looking at this through tinted glasses? Me who is looking for actions or you who believes everything Obama says? Sorry actions speak louder than words you lose.

Can somebody please tell me why the Republicans and John McCain continue to keep the 'kid' gloves on? Why are they not hammering the Democrats for their complicit failure in this financial mess. What do they have to loose now? What do they possibly gain by allowing the media to gloss over the real culprits in this mess. Why isn't McCain highlighting that he went to Washington to ensure that the 20% profits to ACORN were removed from this bailout bill?

Can somebody please tell me why the Republicans are allowing the Democrats to take a pass on any of this????? Anyone????

The Lizard said...

I have to assume they are waiting for the deal to be completed. The country needs a bailout plan and if the democrats don't pass one the economy will tank and the republicans will get hurt. Let this pass and then I have to believe it will all come out at a time when the pathetic pawns (MSM) in the media will not have time to spin the message.

Look it only took a week for the pathetic pawns to spin Palin. The Republicans need to make sure they layout Obama for good and do not give the Democratic Propaganda wing (MSM) an Opportunity to work their spin.

Palin is safe now. She did return to the base.

And what you described is the way McCain works.

The problem is that McCain is not pinning this issue on Democrats. He's basically saying NOTHING. He's had several opportunities to nail Obama and the Democrats with this, but he hasn't. Today he's 8 points down in Gallup.
I'm pretty much fed up with his not backing his Republican base and supporters.

ComOB said...

Lizard,

I really hope you are right. Hopefully they will vote on it during a late session tonight so that McCain can start hammering the facts on Monday.

1- You don't sound legit. McCain does not have to back his supporters, it's the other way around.

2- Polls are polls.

What did McCain go to Washington to do?

To see what the fundamentals of the economy look like?

Or could he not stay away any longer. Sources say he missed his friend Bush so much and was afraid to say hello.

I wander if he now understand what the fundamentals look like now? I only hope they did not show him on a computer

The Lizard said...

Look at the troll.

Can't spell. Can't write a sentence in english. Has to resort to the same lies as Obama.

He went to Washington to work for America. That is his job. What did Obama do? Wait for someone else to do the job he is supposed to.

You all need to get a grip. Obama is out there taking credit for the revisions in this bill. The MSM is happily going along. McCain is MIA. He is dropping in the polls because of that stupid stunt he pulled with "suspending his campaign." Geez, he could have just GONE to DC and not made such an issue out of it. I know we would love to see him elected, but god allmighty, HE needs to act like he wants to be elected!! Spare me the crap about him "waiting till the bill is out" to make a statement. First impressions are EVERYTHING and right now the country's first impression is that Obama is the "great rescuer." You think thats actually going to change if McCain makes some weak statement a day late and a dollar short? I'm FURIOUS at this bailout and I'm even more at McCain for laying down without a fight.
