Ed Morrissey notes that the Dems can pass this without any GOP help. However, they don’t have the courage, nor do they want to be siding with Bush on this.
McCain is no solid Republican. When he gets consensus he gets it from the Dems. [hence bipartisan action] He can support ‘the plan’ and the Dems would have their cover.
He’s still thinking.
He, like the Japanese in WWII doesn’t understand something big.:
the principle that “no plan survives first contact.”
McCain keeps throwing Obama for a loop because McCain isn’t doing what he’s ‘supposed to be doing’. Had any Democrat over the years actually studied up on McCain instead of making him a Bush III, they could have seen this.
A bit of holier than thou, a bit of personal responsibility, a bit of the long bomb, then throw in a heated campaign……
Obama’s deer in the headlights/snarkiness/call me when they need me is ridiculous.
