John McCain Mavericks it Up (sigh)
I’m trying to follow the logic behind statements like this:
It was a bad beginning because it wasn’t what we promised the American people — what President Obama promised the American people, that we would sit down together.
That’s Sarah Palin’s failed-VP choice, John McCain, on the stimulus bill and the state of the failed Obama presidency. It’s one of the many attacks Republicans have made against Obama because his bill failed to deliver on his bipartisan promise, because even though the bill was cut to please Republicans, and included a whole bunch of completely useless taxcuts, none of them voted for the package. Barry even invited those fuckers over to his house for beer, but apparently that didn’t count as sitting down together. So, let’s impeach him, cut some taxes, and move the fuck on.
John McCain is right. He must be, because he saved the economy once already, back when he suspended his presidential campaign to sit silently at a table with other important people, thus rescuing America until it was ruined again by Barack Obama, the darkie scourge of Wall Street (black people: no good with money).
McCain also conceded that:
Republicans were guilty of this kind of behavior. I’m not saying that we did things different. But Americans want us to do things differently and they want us to work together
So, to sum up. President Obama promised us bipartisanship. He made several efforts at reaching out to Republicans (including offering Secretary of Commerce – whoops). Our toddler Republicans have given him absolutely no cooperation, even though the stimulus package concedes several major issues to them (bye bye education funding!). It will pass anyway, everybody will get some of what they want, and Obama is an abject, horrible, failure of a man and John McCain is the nation’s only honorable man. God Bless America and John McCain.
