Talk about the height of Orwellian doublespeak. John McCain came out today and blamed Obama for the current economic crisis:
"We’ve heard a lot of words from Senator Obama over the course of this campaign. But maybe just this once he could spare us the lectures, and admit to his own poor judgment in contributing to these problems. The crisis on Wall Street started in the Washington culture of lobbying and influence peddling, and he was square in the middle of it."
Um, are you f*cking kidding me?
Isn't this the dottering old man who accused Obama of being a naive whippersnapper who didn't have enough experience to be President because he'd only been in the Senate for a couple of years?
So, Senator Dipsh*t, how the f*ck does some naive little pisher like Obama cause a systemic financial meltdown in his measly two years in Washington?
Wouldn't it make just a tiny bit more sense to blame the angry over-the-hill Republican hack who's dwelt in the halls of Washington power for 20+ years and offered up an economic plan written by a man who called us a "nation of whiners" and probably did more than any single person in creating the current mess by stripping away all meaningful regulation of the financial industry?
Again, are you f*cking kidding me?
