Asked why Obama has been rising as the Wall Street crisis has dominated attention, McCain said with a chuckle on Fox News Channel: "Because life isn’t fair.”
“He certainly did nothing for the first few days," McCain added. "I suspended my campaign, took our ads down, came back to Washington, met with the House folks and got on the phone, and also had face-to-face meetings.”
Waaah! WAAAH!! Mommy Voter doesn't love meeeee!
Despite suspending his campaign (but not really) and returning to Washington to muck up negotiations on the bailout bill and failing to deliver a majority of Republican House votes for the plan he endorsed, McCain lost ground to Obama in the polls. How terribly unfair it is that voters are noticing how lost and ineffectual McCain is, how empty his rhetoric has been since backing away from his proclamation that the fundamentals of the economy are "strong," how hypocritical he is in calling for regulation of the finance industry after championing deregulation throughout his career.
McCain has joined the ranks of the whiners. Suck it up, Senator. You only have another month until you can take a nice long nap and try to forget that the election ever happened.
