Bush basically just bailed him out on this issue. Now McCain will not be able to point out that he was the only one who went back to help in the crisis. McCain should ask Bush to just stay out of this election. He is not helping.
Maybe the crisis is so dire that elections aren’t that important right now.
My guess is the call went something like this:
President Bush: Hello Senator Obama, this is the President.
The One: Wassup whitey?
President Bush: Just to let you know, I'm addressing the American people this evening. I have two versions of my speech, one in which I say you are missing in action during a time of crisis, while John McCain put his country first, and another in which I thank both candidates for coming back to Washington. You can pick which one I say.
The One: Whatchoo talkin' bout Willis?
President Bush: Good day, Barry.
This economic crisis wasn't helping McCain. This is an attempt to take the issue of the campaign table.
Exactly! I can't believe this! McCain had Obama on the ropes over this and Bush just saved Obama’s arse. Stupid is as stupid does.
Bush did exactly what McCain requested earlier in the day. Why are you jumping all over Bush for it?
