On CNN’s Situation Room today Arizona Rep. Shadegg said that John McCain was responsible for torpedoing the first bailout bill. According to Shadegg, in the Cabinet room, McCain said that the bill was not a good bill and that the House Republicans had a good idea. He thus encouraged the House Republicans who did not like the bill to oppose it, rather than holding their noses and going along with it. What a horrible, horrible man, a man who clearly put his political campaign ahead of the country’s good! He is a moral derelict. He made some points with the arch conservatives in his party, but at what a cost! He is willing to bring America to its knees in order to get elected.
The House Democrats have poked fun at the Republicans for saying that Nancy Pelosi’s speech was the reason they opposed the bill. Barney Frank said they decided not to act in the best interests of the country because their feelings were hurt. But this is not the first time that has happened. Apparently Newt Gingrich shut down the US Government in the 1990’s because President Bill Clinton made him disembark from Air Force One through the rear door. Newt was perfectly capable of punishing America for dissing him, and so are the House Republicans.
John McCain, Newt Gingrich, the House Republicans, and Ronald Reagan would never say those feared words, “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.” They say, “I’m from the government, and I’m here to punch you in the face.”
